Which Transport or CD Player?
@mdonda  Well, welcome to open format forum discussions. As is typical you are exposed to differences of opinion and experiences which is a good thing. My situation is the polar opposite of the previous posted experience. Precisely why I recommen... 
Contemplating DEVORE SPEAKERS (and others)....LONG audition report of many speakers
@fsonicsmith I can imagine that your Devore O-93s and ARC Reference-80S amplifier make a very pleasing and engaging pairing.The ARC Reference-6 preamplifier sure wouldn’t hurt any of the proceedings either. Charles  
Another one (server) bites the dust! Aurender N10 vs. N200
@budburma Based on your efforts, you definitely take power concerns seriously. I would give attention and heed the guidance of @blisshifi given his in depth familiarity of the Aurrender components. Charles  
Elrog 300b vs we300b
@johnnycopy The Frankensteins are marvelous sounding but can be a bit hard on the 300b tube. I had two failures with the excellent Takatsuki tubes within a 5 year period. Admittedly I use my Frankensteins very regularly for long listening sessio... 
Another one (server) bites the dust! Aurender N10 vs. N200
Just knowing that between the two units that the N 200 has the superior power supply would make if preferable for me. Power supply quality is paramount to achieving good sound quality. I've yet to encounter any audio component where power supply r... 
Does creating a loom in cables in a system make a significant difference?
@styleman I use a mix of different cables for interconnect, speaker and digital cables. I have no complaints. The music sounds great I would say your own results speak for themselves. Different roads do lead to Rome. Same brand cable loom has... 
Loretta Lynn has passed away
@bluorion  +1 Very long life and very successful career. God bless. Charles   
Elrog 300b vs we300b
@johnnycopy In an earlier post I mentioned I had owned the EML XLS tubes for 7 or 8 years. I came across an old post of mine regarding 300b choices. At the time I made that post I had owned the EML tubes for about six months, so early spring ... 
Accuphase dac 60
This was never an accuphase or ps audio problem, just me, user error As you say, a learning experience (Which are part of the process and worthwhile). Everyone has had these in some manner or another. Bottom line is that you finally sorted thin... 
Technics sr u 1000 ... vs Accuphase e-480
@curtdr  if I got the e480 and didn’t prefer it, I could likely get as much as I paid for it... so I suppose one trick would be to pony up 20k get at used 480 and a new Tech with 60 day return privs and actually play em side by side, If feasib... 
Elrog 300b vs we300b
The best 300b tubes are expensive. Their better sound quality and reliability are justification. If you have a high quality 300b amplifier and audio audio system, it’s the right way to go. I would not hinder a good amp with lower tier 300b tubes. ... 
Technics sr u 1000 ... vs Accuphase e-480
@curtdr  Here is a cursory synopsis of the Technics from What Hifi review. No doubt both this and the time tested Accuphase 480 amplifier have very happy owners. What is the likelihood of hearing either/both and judging directly? What Hi-Fi? Ver... 
Which ones should I choose? Tannoy Kensington Gr or B&W 804 D4
@avanti1960  There is no question that both of these venerable brands have their loyal and happy supporters. Otherwise how could both have successfully survived for decades? Certainly posters responding on this thread have leaned heavily toward T... 
Elrog 300b vs we300b
Psvane manufactures different quality levels of tubes. The ACME is their uppermost tier for the 300b. Charles  
Which ones should I choose? Tannoy Kensington Gr or B&W 804 D4
@brunomarcs  Trust your own ears and listening impressions/reactions. It has to sound right to you. This is regardless of what others may say or believe. This approach has served me unfailingly well. Charles
