Will Lyra Delos get Lambda upgrade?
If so they should be able to do rebuilds to the Lambda spec.  I've been waiting a few years now so waiting a bit longer makes sense if it's coming down the pipe. 
Node 2i use with external DAC
Haven't heard the Gungnir but the Yggdrasil is definitely a big step up in performance from a Node 2i on its own.The thing with the Yggy IMHO is that it's looking for balanced in and out to perform it's best so although the Node 2i works great the... 
Most valuable LP
Tom Petty Wildflowers - I remember going into this record shop a bunch of times and being too cheap to pony up the $40 or whatever they were asking for it at the time.  Finally grabbed it months later still one of my all time favourite albums and ... 
TEAC NT-505 impossible connecting to WiFi router o such LAN: help me please?
Seems like Teac has some QC issues they need to address or else someone is selling returns without testing the units properly.My NT-505 was a sealed unit bought in Canada, sounds wonderful no issues whatsoever with all the latest software/firmware... 
New Zirconia Pipe Cantilever .. What's up with that ?
If you kind of love your turntable, get her a cubic zirconia lol! 
Sonos Amp
Looks like the 6T are 90db efficient so you should be fine with the Sonos amp and although they are 4 ohms it sounds like Sonos are saying work with them no problem.You'll likely be surprised at how well it does but I'm sure you can easily buy wit... 
Sonos Amp
What speakers?  I can tell you that the Sonos amp sounds pretty good and way better than the Connect Amp which was a bit mushy sounding in comparison.If the speakers are reasonably efficient you're good if they're power hungry you might want to go... 
Good sounding wired earbuds - affordable?
Haven't heard them but the Beyer Soul Byrds seem to be getting good feedback for reasonably priced earbuds.I recently bought a pair of Shure SE425 which are more in ear than earbuds they are very good but bass is only good if you get a really good... 
Node 2i performance suggestions pls
"@audiojedi , I'm using CAT6. Would CAT8 be a noticable upgrade? Thanks"I actually went from CAT6 to CAT7 and didn't notice much if any difference - went to CAT8 for fun because it was cheap and there was a more noticeably fleshed out sound to be... 
Node 2i performance suggestions pls
Pretty sure there is another thread similar to this already running - assuming you have good quality interconnects that mate well with your amp/preamp I would look at upgrading the Ethernet cable running to your Node 2i. I found that upgrading the... 
Node 2i performance suggestions pls
The biggest difference that I noticed cable wise on my Node 2i was running CAT8 cable to it from my switch.  I just used generic cable but I'm sure Supra, Wireworld etc would be even better.It definitely fleshed out the sound, I noticed a much big... 
high quality turntable with built in phono at $1000?
The Technics SL-1500C is definitely a winner in and around that price point - most tables with built in Phono don't allow you to switch it off but the Technics does so if you end up with an amp or preamp with a better Phono stage you can disengage... 
Node 2i to U1 Mini with Yggdrasil?
Thanks I'm going to try running Roon through a laptop via USB into the Yggy after putting some more hours on the Teac and see what happens.The NT-505 is a real sleeper I think - listening to Herbie Hancock The Prisoner right now in MQA via Roon an... 
Harbeth 40.2
I've been living with a pair of 40.2's for almost a year now in a room which is about 15' x 25' that opens up to the main floor of the home so lots of room to breathe.I found that pulling the speakers out from the back wall and towards the listeni... 
Opinions on Rega Apheta 3 or 2?
I am running an Apheta 2 on an RP10 and it's very good but if I weren't buying one at a discount with the player I'd buy something else.Lyra or Dynavector at similar price points will best the Apheta - I was running a Lyra Delos prior to the Aphet...
