Aegir upgrade to Pass...maybe
I'm always kind of puzzled at these kinds of comparisons.  Comparing amps that differ so wildly in price is really useless, for the most part.  A person with $800 to spend will not find anything better than the Aegir, sound quality wise(probably e... 
Can I use 24 gauge speaker cable?
Good lord, who comes up with these thread ideas?  Okay, I guess we know who, but still... 
Upgrade preamp?
Brother, if you've got that kind of budget(2 big Bryston amps and then up to 5K for a pre)  you should be going straight to a high end audio shop that carries the Maggies and amps/pre's  that complement them.   
Why high-end cable manufacturers don't post measurements?
I’d like to get your take on why high-end manufacturers don’t post measurements? would you like to see how a cable measure before ....does it matter to you?The above is impressively full of various grammar errors for just 2 sentences. The first se...

What we have here, folks, is a 10 year old thread.  Try checking the date before you respond to a thread you've dug up. 
How to shop for an integrated?
I think more information is needed. Your proposed budget, the speakers involved, the room size, type of music being played, and any sound characteristics you prefer. That said, the Schiit Audio Ragnarok is very musical can be ordered with a built ... 
Looking for headphone amp/DAC
I’ve got those Sony MDR 7506, I think they might be the brightest sounding headphones that ever were.   Brighter than my Grados even.  You are going to need to carefully select the amp for those phones. I’d suggest something that has a warm sound ... 
In ear? vs. On/over ear? Your experience
I've had 3 pairs of around ear phones and the most comfortable pair of those was from bose. Pretty good, but an issue for me is that the ears can heat up over time.  It can get rather warm.I had a pair of in ears from Bose as well, their top of th... 
What speaker has the best high frequencies?
There is no one speaker that has the best high frequencies. 
Used preamp under $400...
I see others have beat me to the punch, but I'll say it anyway.  Schiit Audio Saga +.  You can also get a b stock version for a little less.  I've had the old gen Saga, which was my first passive.  It was so good I thought I'd try out the Freya +.... 
sam here is it possible to get a nice analog warm headphone foo $100 dollers
Pratorious must have been unaware that the Grados are specifically not warm.  Perhaps the RS2E is closer to warm, being almost neutral.  I've the the RS125e, they are pretty close to the SR80e, and they are bright, forward and pretty detailed, cer... 
Chinese fake cables How fake, how good?
China has been infiltrating just about every single industry and manufacturing sector out there, including audio.  Rather than get their brilliant people to R&D products that they refine over the course of decades, they steal technologies, des...

Glad you have a happy ending!  I admit I only dabble in headphone use, so it's nice that fellas such as yourself share your experiences. 
Marantz pm6006 upgrade?
Schiit recently released the Modius dac for $200.  I've had a few of their dacs and they really make great sounding gear.  I've had the Modi 3, Modi Uber, Bifrost Multibit among others.  I'm waiting for my Modius to arrive.
