Cybershaft 10Mhz master clocks, new products at various price points....
@zephyr24069  thanks, makes sense. 
Cybershaft 10Mhz master clocks, new products at various price points....
@zephyr24069  I like the idea of the Esoteric G-02x clock if can support dCS and other DACs I may own in the future.  Do you know if it supports auto-switching of 44.1kHz and 48kHz titles by using 2 BNC cables from the DAC to the clock like the ... 
Cybershaft 10Mhz master clocks, new products at various price points....
@zephyr24069  Thanks for the info.  I already own a Rossini. I've been told by some Rossini owners that the Rossini clock isn't a noticeable improvement.  Thanks for the info on Esoteric's new model.  I figure I have another 3 - 4 years with the R...

@ zephyr24069 Can the Cybershaft clocks be used with a dCS Rossini streamer/DAC?  If yes, which do you recommend? 
Next Best Upgrade for Tidal MQA?
@bruxesq Actually my reply was spot on to your request to improve the sound quality of your system.  I was a TIDA user for 2 years and thought MQA was terrific until I heard the same tracks in hi-rez on Qobuz.  That's why so many of us ex-TIDAL us... 
Next Best Upgrade for Tidal MQA?
Change to Qobuz.  Hi-res sounds better than MQA. 
Serious Problems with Qobuz
I find Qobuz customer service to be very good.  I recently emailed Sebastien who provides most of the Qobuz customer email promotions.  I asked Sebastien if Qobuz could look into getting Lyle Lovett on their service as most Lyle Lovett albums have... 
Tidal MQA vs Qobuz hi-res
@bataras Perhaps we listen to different genres of music but I find Qobuz has more HiRez titles than TIDAL has MQA.  I find the UI's of TIDAL and Qobuz to be similar, perhaps that's because of the integration with a dCS Rossini streamer.  And the c... 
D'agostino amplifiers: where's the beef?
@bobbyddCouldn't agree with you more. To me it's the same issue I have with the Ayre MX-R Twenty amps, most of the weight and cost seems to be in the aluminum casing.   
Jazz vocalists which may not be as real as we think/imagine
One thing we know for sure is that Kraal's husband (Elvis Costello) doesn't rely on recording gimmicks to improve his voice. 
Magnepan, Ohm, Spatial or ??
@soundchasrI heard the Spatial Sapphire M3s and was amazed with the sound quality for a speaker that costs under $5k.  I know it's a bit higher than your budget but you also won't need an amp with lots of power as you might need with the Maggie 1.... 
Upgrade to Maggi 3.7i or Tekton Moab?
@trebuchetI have no listening experience with the Tekton Mohabs but I recently auditioned the Maggie 20.7i and 3.7i.  I chose the 20.7i, but the 3.7i were very similar in tonal quality and the holographic soundstage lots of folks equate with Maggi... 
Lumin X1 latest Review like we have been saying
Has anyone compared the Lumin X1 to their prior flagship streamer the S1? Also, I also can't find any reviews on the X1 as a pre-amp going direct to an amp via XLR.  This is an area where many dCS Rossini and Vivaldi owners have discovered the Ros... 
Power Conditioner: Isotek, Audioquest or other?
@coto37 Don't buy a power conditioner to protect your equipment. If lightning hits your home and the circuit that the power conditioner is connected to isn't properly grounded, no power conditioner that I'm aware of will protect whatever's connect... 
Speakers that can reveal orchestral instruments' positions
@gkr7007  I recently heard the Spatial Audio M3 Sapphire speakers at the Florida Audio Expo and was stunned by the SQ for such an affordable speaker. They just seemed to get all the notes correct without any exaggeration of bass, mids or treble. C...
