I want more bass…
Just walking around the room will tell you if you have nulls. You can use single frequencies.  If they truly go that low holding your hand in front of the bass port you should feel plenty of air movement.  Then bass traps and first reflection trap... 
Fuzzy playback
I put deoxit on the rest of my interconnects today. That may be it. I should have known. My crossover is about 30 yrs old. The volume controls are not the best. The RCA bases are not the best. I should call Phil Marchand and get a crossover made. ... 
Fuzzy playback
Now I confused myself. If it is a connection issue with digital, it either works or it doesn’t. Correct? This sound has been from RCA cables or volume controls in the past. I assumed it was ethernet cables after I unplugged the patch cable from th...

Class D with high efficiency speakers
Take a right turn.  Try a Pass XA25.  I will never sell mine! I know, it is Class A.  I have left it on for days and didn't notice any electricity use increase.  Class D will be detailed but so is this one.  This unit is single ended only, no bal... 
DAC/Pre-Amp Advice
When you get the ethernet hooked up, I would recommend a EMI/RF filter.  The Netwotk acoustics ENO or MUON would be excellent.  I have $50 Dx Engineering  ones.    
DAC/Pre-Amp Advice
Are you running ethernet or optical from router to Node?  
Best sounding low power (under 80watts) Class AB amp?
The Ayre are an excellent choice.  You may not like any Class D.  Some are in this thread.  I know you asked for AB but I have the XA25 Pass Labs sounds great.  It gets warm but I can lay my hand on it.  Sometimes,  I  leave iy on for several days... 
Network Acoustics Eno Streaming System vs SGC Optical Isolation System
I have always wondered about so many filters, switches in the streaming setup.  Diminishing returns?  With that being said I  have DX Engineering filters and an Add Powr symphony I O.  I think each item does different things.  The results are spac...

What are your top 3 favorite female singers?
Adele, tired of hearing about failed relationships.   Who am I?  Roberta Flack, Karen Carpenter, Enya. I also like Dua Lipa.  Would like to hear her live to confirm.  Too many voice fixers nowadays.  It's funny, Diana Krall used to be on every l... 
Pure Class-A Amp under $2000 (USED)
The Sonus Faber would like power, especially if you play loud.  Most Class A amps are small 30 W or less.  I had a Schitt.  Sounded good but not enough grunt.  You need an amp with some weight, a big transformer, etc. There are several AB amps th...

Time to do house cleaning.
A list of who gets your belongings, and who inherits them is a legal document.  Have you and your wife sign it.  Keep it with your will.  Otherwise, I would clean up.  Don't have to do it all at once!
