PS Audio Directstream Bridge II stability with Roon
Why don't you consider the Lumin T2?Lumin's products are known for being very stable with just about everything, they constantly come up with software revisions if they find a bug.We use our T2 with the Innous zenith which is our Roon Core and the... 
Thoughts about Jadis and Harbeth
Joey we are also a Parasound dealer, the Micromega is far superior sounding to the Parasound in every way. The new Hint was better than the older version but they are a far cry from the Micromega also the Hint 6 does not stream so you must factor ... 
Thoughts about Jadis and Harbeth
Have to agree with noromance. the Jadis stuff looks great sounds ok until you get into the much more expensive gear and the fit and finish was never their standpoint.For your price range we would recommend a remarkable solid state intergrated whic... 
Used DACs in the 10k range
Op we wouldn’t recommend any digital change at this juncture, if you are contemplating a speaker change, or other equipment is in flux.We look at the digital front end as the final flavor in a system.Our approach is to select speakers first, as th... 
Speaker upgrade question - Wilson vs Focal
Alpha, these are all good points however, your electronics might have favored the Wilsons over the Focal Lascala. Also the Focals of today sound way better then the earlier versions of these speakers same with the Wilsons. It is also possible that... 
Denafrips Terminator vs other dacs
We would have you also look at the T+A DAC 8 DSD which is one of Audiostreams top recommendations.The DAC 8 DSD when fed with Quad Rate DSD files was found to compete with the Total Dac and DCS Rossini Dacs which are both 4-5 times the price of th... 
Rega P8 with Alpheta 2?
Gphill,The Alphetta will smooth out after really about 20 hours of use and get a bit better after that.The speed, articulation and sheer musicality of this combination and ease of setup and use makes the P8/Alphetta 2 such a fantastic package.Dave...

Anything wrong with PS Audio DirectStream DACs?
Thank you Emcdade a voice of reason.We are not against the PS audio Direct Stream, but we have seen this behavior before, where a product didn’t perform correctly or didn’t sound as good as it should, and then was magically fixed via a firmware up... 
Anything wrong with PS Audio DirectStream DACs?

Speaker upgrade question - Wilson vs Focal
mpstein there is no issue with Mac powering Wilsons, Mac will power any speaker, the issue is sonic matching.With Mcintosh the Focals or Ushers would sound more lively.Dave and TroyAudio Doctor NJ 
Speaker upgrade question - Wilson vs Focal
Rbstehn, we were Usher dealers for quite a number of years the BE 10 and BE 20 were excellent, they would be outclassed by some of the newer loudspeakers currently on the market but boy were they good for the time. Part of the issue was the speake... 
Raidho TD1.2 opinions?
Have to agree with Contuzzi,Heard the Radihos and the big Bortossens,  The newer Rahidos, were more balanced and more dynamic then previous versions. Loved the big Bortossens, just were not impressed enough at $120k a pair. The other $30k speakers...
