Classe SSP-800 - Time to move on?
Thanks for the input, auxinput.Yeah I suppose you're 100% correct. The lyngdorf's dac won't even process full MQA and I would most likely end up bypassing just like the Classe.  
Favorite Female vocals that give you goose bumps
Billie Holiday. Always a fave.  
Classe SSP-800 - Time to move on?
I'm in the same boat. Have had my ssp800 since 2009 and it has worked flawlessly. Bought the Aurender A10 music server a month ago and it sounds better with the classe bypassed. The classe is a tough sell now and I have one eye on the new Lyngdorf...

A personal challenge
Almost 2 years without a drag for me now, Feb 10 to be exact. Best decision I've made in a long, long time. Was a pack a day smoker for almost 30 years. Just decided I just didn't want to deal with it anymore and just quit, cold turkey. To those w... 
Velodyne DD Plus: New King of the Jungle?

Why does New York radio station sond so good?
Another thumbs up for 88.3. Been an avid listener for almost 10 years, it's just the best! 
HDMI Cable
I've "read" that The Nordost is pretty good also. I was all set to try it a year or so ago but somehow got sidetracked. I've gone the Blue Jeans way for now :),but I'm certainly not against revisiting the matter.

Mac Mini versus PC sonic differences, why?
Hey Ballan,So, which SSD do you recommend? I'd like to squeeze out as much as I can with my new Mac mini. I've replaced my dedicated CD player with the newest mini and I certainly want to look more into this. Thanks.
