How good's your hearing
As is so often the case, follow the money.   Ask yourself, does the individual bashing something need you to be convinced so he/she can sell you something else?   If their mortgage depends on their ability to make you believe what they need you to... 
Confirming sub is torched...
Thanks for the reply stevecham - I got this unit used a couple of years ago as part of a multi-component trade on CL.  Implied value in that deal was maybe $350, so my investment isn't large and I've gotten 2 years out of it.  If we think a local ... 
Is using streaming services worthy of an audiophile?
There goes Fonzie, flying over some sharks again.... 
Come on people....BASS!
I had to interview job candidates for my company not long ago.   And writing is involved - being able to describe the products on the website for potential buyers.  As part of the interview I gave all candidates a 10 word spelling exam, nothing to... 
Line Magnetic LM-502CA DAC & Alternatives...
I liked it enough to buy a Peachtree Grand Integrated for another room, so I have both a Dac-itX and the Grand Integrated, one running a pair of Wilson Benesch Arcs, the other a pair of BMC PureVox.    And yes, I did A/B the Line Magnetic vs. ot... 
Line Magnetic LM-502CA DAC & Alternatives...
@defiantboomerang, that thread was started almost 4 years ago, but I did not purchase the Line Magnetic.   Ended up with a Peachtree Dac-itX instead. 
Dealers hijacking the discussions
I don't mind dealer participation in the least, AS LONG AS THEY DISCLOSE THEY ARE A DEALER.  Caps fully intended.   For me personally, once I put 2+2 together and figure out a poster is a dealer subtly pushing an agenda, they've lost me.  I mental... 
Power cord for digital stuffs?
The power cord that came in the box.   Seriously.  The power cord that came in the box.    
New Yggdrasil - First (and second) Impressions
@whitestix Yes, you and I are on the same page regarding speakers vs. dacs.  I agree that that is where you hear the biggest differences, that's where I've had my "wow" moments, both good and bad.    Get the speakers right for your room and listen... 
Is using streaming services worthy of an audiophile?
The OP said: "Audiophiles and music lovers have almost nothing in common. Ordinary music lovers usually find despicable Apple earbuds perfectly acceptable, for example. I am 100% certain that audiogon members enjoy music on a much deeper level ... 
New Yggdrasil - First (and second) Impressions
I couldn't hear any difference in dacs up to $2500, through perfectly respectable speakers, electronics and cables.  I tried, it just didn't happen.   So I'm not the least bit surprised that you're not hearing it either between the Oppo and Schiit... 
I guess I have to sell my Tekton Enzos
I understand where the OP and jmcgrogan2 are coming from. It's estimated there are 100,000 adjectives in the English language...if the best someone can do when trying to describe or compare something is to say it "kills", "slaughters" or "blows aw... 
Line Magnetic 502ca
Good luck to you jkull...I'm glad your hyperbole festival is in full swing, and I appreciate the invite, but I'm skipping this one.  When you assert that the LM dac "embarrasses" the Oppo 105, I'm out.   You may as well be trying to convince me th... 
Best Subwoofer To Use With A Two Way Speaker System
If I had the room to add a 2nd REL and could locate one in my area, I'd definitely try it.   I believe in what the commenters say above - what one does well, two likely do better.   It's not happening in my 11x10 room, but if I had the space for i... 
Line Magnetic 502ca
I tried one at home for a weekend, thanks to my local dealer.  Beautiful unit, though I feel at that price point a Chinese manufacturer should offer more than a 1-year warranty.   I'm glad you're enamored of it, though I personally would avoid the...
