Unidisk 1.1 vs. Arcam DV 137 or 139
Joe,I can't help you on the Linn, but I did listen to the 137 vs 139 today at my dealer's shop. The 139 stomps the 137 in both audio and video, it is not even close!!!! I liked the 139, but if video is not important to you, then that opens up all ... 
Cary CD 306 SACD Burn-in time & Power Cable's
Charandacafe,There's nothing wrong with your pc, I have one of those also and like it. Watch the used market for the Transparent pc's, sometimes there are good deals. I would not go any lower than a Transparent Musiclink Plus pc or it will not be ... 
Cary CD 306 SACD Burn-in time & Power Cable's
When I had my Cary I used a Shunyata Python and then went to a Transparent Super pc and then to a Transparent reference. Each move was a step up in performance. The Transparent pc's added a much blacker background and more micro detail.LOL.Mike 
Art Audio Carissa vs Cary SLI-80
Pehare,You're messing with a nice system, be careful. The Carissa would just be different, whether or not it would be an upgrade would be up to you. Do you like the sound of SET's?I would be a nice match. I thought about getting a Dehavilland with... 
Berning ZH270 vs 845 SET amp
I thought I would pass this conversation along that I had the other day with a guy from Berning Company(not David). I am not using his name to protect the innocent. He made the comment, that for me to like the Berning amp I would have to like the ... 
Berning ZH270 vs 845 SET amp
I would like to thank all of you for your responses. They are all unique and helpful in their own ways. Kris yours being very well written.My source is a Cary 306 SACD and I think it is as good as anything under $12000.00., but as anyone can read ... 
Berning ZH270 vs 845 SET amp
So, what if I am going to use the Berning like an integrated, no preamp? With my speakers a little tightning of the bass would be fine, I just don't want to loose the mid and highs that one gets with tubes. Yes I may lean towards the warm, romanti... 
Berning ZH270 vs 845 SET amp
It an effort to help the thread my speakers are Coincident Super E III's. 92 db, 14ohm. So any amp "should" work fine. My concern with the Berning is that people say it does not sound like tubes a littlelifeless and of course some people say the o... 
Ayre C 5xe Universal vs. Cary 306 SACD
I would agree 100% with Robal. My experiences were exactly the same as his. I really like the Cary 306, its much more enjoyable to listen to compared to the Ayre.Mike 
Silverline Sonata II or III owners
Bill,I do use a tube amp...only! The Model II was lite in the loafers in regards to the bass. I felt both speakers were bright. The mid range is excellent and the imagining is top notch.They just were not my cup o tea. They are easy to drive.Speak... 
Silverline Sonata II or III owners
Bill,I have owned both and sold both, their are better speakers for the money.MHO.regardsMike 
What's better than Oritek X-2
For those of you interested in the thread and not vacuum cracks. I have ordered pair of the Jade Vermeil ic's. Boa I am using a Black Momba pc on the cdp and a AZ cord on the amp.I will let you know what I think, it will take a month to get the ic... 
Difference: Cary SLI80 Signature vs non-signature?
IF you really want to get the sli-80 call Upscale Audio and get the F1 version, they are the only dealer that can sell it. I have owned 3 sli-80 and this is by far the best. Talk to Kevin or Jared they will help you out.I have had 3 of them becaus... 
Acoustic Zen Adagio, How Good Are They?
I felt compelled to write this post, potentially my last. Why, because these speakers are so good IMHO, that I am finally and offically off of the hi merry go round. These are most musically satifing speakers I have ever heard, are they perfect no... 
Anyone using Coincident Total or Super Eclipse
This does not answer your question, but I had a pair of Supers and sold them and have kicked myself every day since. FWIW.Mike
