PrimaLuna Prologue Premium vs Luxman SQ-N10 ?
@dweller also, what speakers are you using?  
PrimaLuna Prologue Premium vs Luxman SQ-N10 ?
@dweller Thanks for the word of caution. I've heard a number of folks saying the unit is dead quiet, so I'm wondering if your unit is defective. Is this hum present on all source selections? And does it sound like a ground hum or tube noise? 
Hi-res digital audio vs sacd
Thanks guys, for all of this perspective. Yeah, I've decided to pass on the SACD player, simply because I don't listen to that much classical, and it seems not worth the investment just to have a few recordings/masters that might not be available ... 
Audiophile quality streamer/server-in-one without a DAC. Does this exist?
I too have a Bluesound Vault II and could not be happier with it. It does have a built in DAC that is decent but I use the digital out to go into a Cary Audio DAC-100t tube DAC. I would not call it he Bluesound DAC cool, but straight up neutral. W... 
Luxman CL34: How does it compare today?
@zipost and @br3098, thanks so much for your responses as I've learned something new today about sound quality improvement through stepped attenuators. I'm curious though, why are stepped better than the regular rotary pots, is it because it is mo... 
Are you using DH Labs?
Anyone have any experience with their power cables? I'm interested in hearing about the Red Wave or Power Plus. I currently use PS Audio AC-5 for pretty much everything but I'm wondering how their stuff compares. 
Are you using DH Labs?
@dgarretson Thanks, I'm planning on making an order to try it out! 
Are you using DH Labs?
@ghosthouse thanks for sharing your thoughts!@dgarretson wow, just looked at the KLEI connectors, and they are pretty affordable for being silver. May look into that route. Do you happen to know the capacitance of the BL-Ag per foot? That's exactl...

@ghosthouse I've never used their digital cable. How does it compare?  
Are you using DH Labs?
@lprules Pretty sure that the cables in your system cost more than my whole system. :) Curious, what's in the rest of your system? 
Are you using DH Labs?
@dgarretson Thanks for the reference on the headshell cable. I just looked into the Connex bulk cable you were referencing, and they look like a great wire! Currently 50% off at Parts Connexion too. I might have to try em out. What are you using f... 
Are you using DH Labs?
@rhljazz have you considered selling your Revelation RCA? If you would consider, what length is it at and how much would you want?I have a very similar setup with Q-10 biwire, Revelation IC's and Air Matrix IC's. Very happy with everything I've us... 
Are you using DH Labs?
@lprules1962 - what reference interconnects? What are you using now?@dgarretson - they make headshell leads? Can you send me a link? 
Upgrade from DV 17D3, looking for recommendations!
@argon66 thanks for the recommendation on the Zephyr Star. I've heard great thjngs, and I do own a Sound Smith SMMC-1 which is a few steps down but of the same signature. I will consider it one day. @effischer I actually ended up buying an XX-2 wi... 
ARE YOU A " TRUE EXPERT AUDIOPHILE " ( T E A ) ???
@rauliruegas I'm sure this has been said in one way or another, but I think "an audiophile uses their equipment/setup to listen to music, whereas a T.E.A. uses their music to listen to their equipment/setup."That said, I am in full agreement with ...
