I would agree with @mike_in_nc . I also own an Auralic G1 (as well as the DCS Network Bridge) and have previously used their Aries streamer. The wifi capability makes it very convenient for me and it has all the streaming options I want. Their Li...

Ayre Codex and Output Transformer
@tvad, what is the benefit of the flying ground wire?I have been using the Jensen Isomax units for years and they work well. Very transparent and wide bandwidth. However, before buying you should contact Jensen (or read the online manual for the p... 
Acoustat Electrostatic spearkers
He designed and built a replacement, but unless you already own a pair that is academic; Roger left none behind when he died in late 2019.Actually he did leave one behind. It was his personal unit and it's sitting in my living room. This one was ... 
Apogee Acoustics repair Is it a waste of money to rebuild a pair of Duetta Signature's
I had considered rebuilding Apogee Duettas at one time and if they are still around True Sound Works will do a great job rebuilding the speakers, but it will cost you plenty. I eventually ended up with Analysis Audio speakers. 
16 ohm speakers: any amp sounds better with more resolution. speaker cables less critical.
@rauliruegas, thanks for that information on your crossover. A very elegant solution.

Ralph, I am about to find out :-) I already know the results will be thunderous. As for a quality goes, if they are as good as the Acoustats I will be happy. If they are better then....I guess I'll jump for joy? @mijostyn, for the investment you...

Roger Modjeski always recommended "light loading" his amps and gave numerous reasons why this was beneficial. Some were mentioned by @atmasphere in a previous post. On a pair of 8 ohm speakers I run my RM10 off the 4 ohm tap. The difference is ver... 
LCR phono stages we know about
Just wanted to report back to say I finally received my Ampearl RE2030 LCR phono. The shipping took nearly 2 months to get here but after a couple weeks in my system it sounds very nice and it is very quiet as well. Quite a surprise for $800. I up... 
Tekton Design Moab
I had an opportunity to hear the Spatial M-5 recently. I wouldn't consider the room ideal for them, but they impressed me quite a bit nonetheless. Associate equipment was a Pass Labs amp, PS Audio BHK preamp, Spiral Groove turntable, and MSB digit...

Help me understand "the swarm" in the broader audiophile world
@audiokinesis, and from a documentary I just watched, moving up the chain, it appears Geddy Lee’s inspiration is Jaco Pastorius.  
Danny Richie "fixes" the Linkwitz Arion loudspeaker
@erik_squires, who are you referring to? 
Danny Richie "fixes" the Linkwitz Arion loudspeaker
I have Roger's personal ESLs and direct drive amp and they are quite good, but I think the ESLs fall off a bit due to their size. It suited Roger's tastes and mine for the most part, but they don't sound as big as my Acoustat Model 2 or Analysis A... 
Danny Richie "fixes" the Linkwitz Arion loudspeaker
The really nice thing about it for Linkwitz owners is that you can run the various EQ simulations through the ASP just as you would in the miniDSP that comes with the speakers. Requires a bit more work but for an analog crossover it would be worth...
