@david_ten Thank you for the mention! @shtr74sims I just reached out directly through PM and am happy to chat.   
Streamer Upgrade Bluesound Node To Aurender N10
@mgattmch Agree with the others that the N10 is a big step up from the Node. I’ve owned Bluesound, even upgraded to NAD’s M50.2 dedicated streamer which was on BluOS. The N10 will blow them all away. In full disclosure I am an Aurender dealer. I ... 
Streamer advice
I’ve owned both. The CXN V2 sounds better and can act as a Roon endpoint now (would still need a Roon core if you want to use Roon), but if using the native OS I like the BluOS in the Bluesound better and with Bluesound you can add on other units ... 
Bulk cable for rear speakers
@jumia Your last statement is subjective, and the pricing is value driven for the level of performance. Their products satisfy some of the best quality components and speakers, but as I said, Canare is okay for more basic applications.   
Bulk cable for rear speakers
@emergingsoul The DH Labs bulk cables come in four different options from $5-$27/ft and their designs vary in conductor gauge and materials, dielectric designs, etc. The T-14 I was mentioning is $13/ft. The Q-10 is even better which basically take... 
Bulk cable for rear speakers
The Canare quad is very good value for the price. That said, if you are looking for more premium options, DH Labs sells some great cables in bulk by the foot. I used 24’ runs of the T-14 for my home theater, which sounded great until I took the th... 
What is the forums opinion of SVS subs?
In my personal experience, if spending less than $3-4K per sub, SVS takes the cake. I have two SVS SB-4000 in my room, which is 18x23 with sloped ceiling up to 18’, and the room is open to another room towards one back side. It’s a lot of space an... 
Aurender N20
@lalitk Well part of the reason why I could honestly be happy is that there would likely be thousands of dollars back in my pocket alongside the N20 to be happy with it. :)  
Aurender N20
@vonhelmholtz Your most recent post is hilarious. I had to do a double take after reading it. :) It makes me happy to hear of your satisfaction in the N20. It truly is the best performance-to-value unit in the Aurender lineup. I would say the N20... 
Software for Room Correction?
There are a lot of options here. As for a mic the most popular options I’ve seen and used are the MiniDSP UMIK-1 and the Dayton Audio mics available on Parts Express.  What are you using for your digital playback chain? Are you using a laptop/com... 
DAC’s
@shtr74sims I recently had a conversation with someone on the MA3. The DAC is actually not bad, but the built in streamer is not great. I came across that that when I had tested it both with an external streamer and the built in one, but the perso... 
Integrated for Streaming
@marktheshark Does the ideal solution have local file serving via hard drive or network storage device as well, or do you plan to only stream? One suggestion is to find a quality preamp with DAC and streamer built in and use your Yamaha A-S2100 a... 
Tube Amp for Devore O/96
@atmasphere Ralph I’m surprised you didn’t explicitly support my mention of your S-30. I know the 0/96 may dip slightly below 8ohms in a few frequencies, but might you have any opinion on how the S-30 might perform with the O/96?  
Streamers/DACs
@lalitk Thanks for sharing your journey. I hadn't heard about the Telegartner until you mentioned it, but that looks like both a serious AND seriously overpriced piece of kit! :) JCAT makes incredible stuff across the board from what I've seen an... 
Tube Amp for Devore O/96
I unfortunately haven't heard those amps but do love the Devore Fidelity 0/96! A few others to consider: Atma-Sphere S-30 Audio Mirror Reflection Monoblocks Margules I-240 Integrated I have heard all three and owned both the Atma-Sphere and Marg...
