I was talking with him a bit and mentioned my AcousTech, he took me into his room he was showing his stages and handed me a circuit board used in his new that year $12k phono stage to take a look at, seems like a nice guy. I guess from being in the Midwest, LOL
    Not too many hurricanes in Kansas I guess. I wonder if he's coming to the Capital Audio Fest in November?

    I also went the streaming root and bought a Bluesound Node N100 back in the spring. It beats the hell out of using my laptop. I can sit and control it with my smart phone.

    I presume you run the Node into the BDA1 via digital? That's what I'm doing, except with a HEOS Link. My DAC has the ability to stream using an Ethernet and some app but I'm not a tech/computer guru. I suppose if I knew I'd gain much in SQ I'd get it done somehow. I really like the HEOS app, it's better for Tidal than their own.

    Exactly. It has a NAS that holds all my files.

    Re: New Phono Pre On Order

    Today I received my Sutherland "Insight" phono preamp. It's found its place in the rack and sounding great. There's a definite warmth with this one. Made the hair on the back of my neck and the cat's tail stand on end.
