Lyngdorf TDAI-3400
Hi Jonathan, I'd also suggest getting your dealer involved.  It seems to me that your problem is rare and thus an outlier. I believe this issue with your specific Lyngdorf can be rectified. Charles  
Analogue Productions Jazz, Blues and Classical 33RPM vs 45RPM advice needed!!!
Brbattles, When I've had the chance to hear 45 versus 33 RPM  of the same title the 33 was as good and in a few instances better sounding. I find myself in agreement with the sentiments expressed in the above posts that the 45 RPM  records    are ...

Roxy54,My Coincident 300b SET  is hands down the most trouble free and dependable amplifier I've ever owned.Charles  
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
Over a 30 year period I've had my share of tube and transistor components.  Tube electronics have been rock solid reliable.Resale value, I summit is more likely brand dependant rather than incriminating all tube components in a general statement. ... 
A DAC that crushes price vs. performance ratio
 Roxy54 does own a very good DAC.  The Lab 12 could be better yet.  The only way to sort it out is to get the DAC  into his system and just listen. All else posted here ( including my comments) is merely speculation albeit well intentioned. Charles

Considering the New Tekton Design Encores? AND Owners Group - Experiences/Questions
Hi jcarcopo,I am really happy to read that things have worked out so well for you with the acquisition of the Lyngdorf. It sure seems as though the "room perfect "feature is excellent in its capacity. I can see where the 400 watts of the Lyngdorf ... 
A DAC that crushes price vs. performance ratio
Roxy54, I wasn’t trying to discourage you at all regarding the Lab 12 DAC. Quite the contrary. I just decided to comment because of you mentioning the Holo Springs which I had direct experience with. I say go forward with your plans to acquire tha... 
A DAC that crushes price vs. performance ratio
Roxy54, I do understand the appeal of NOS and R2R chips and ladder topologies. I would just say that there’s more to the "big picture" viewpoint. I haven’t heard the Lab12 DAC SE but have no reason to question Teajay’s enthusiastic review. A frien... 
A DAC that crushes price vs. performance ratio
I agree with the comments in regard to the cost of the chips in the DAC under discussion. The cost of the chips isn’t a predictor of how the DAC will sound as a finished product. IMHO too much attention is placed on the chips to begin with. I’d su... 
A DAC that crushes price vs. performance ratio
Agree wholeheartedly with wcfeil. It'd be difficult to find a more irrelevant factor in my opinion than lack of an XLR output and its effect on component accuracy. Charles

Techno_dude,Having high regard for WC's amplifier rankings and acknowledging the subjective nature aren't mutually exclusive. You don't perceive his rankings as proclamations do you? That's my only point. Charles

Well again I realize the discussion has strayed from the original topic and this will upset some participants/readers of this thread. I do however find the contributions from Minori, Dracule1, Ricred1 and Thezaks in response to Viber6’s objectivit... 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
Thezaks, Agree. The very nature of this interesting thread is rooted in subjective reporting. This is the foundation. One listener rotates amplifiers and speakers into his home audio system and renders a listening impression based solely on what h... 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
I find it silly that an audio dealer would be afraid of selling WC a product due to the possibility of negative comments from him. Come on, WC is one listener posting his listening impressions,  one person's opinion.  I enjoy reading this thread f...
