@viber6 Thank you for the compliments. I must admit that if I did not use my audio system with Tidal to compare tracks, I could have been fooled by some of the presentations. The first time I listened to video 1, I did not use to Tidal  and initia...

I am having the same issue with Roon. Tracks have random short skips. The issue really comes from Roon and not from my gear. Any Roon end device has the same problem…

I’ve had 2 similar experiences using a preamp with 2 different DACs. My previous front end was composed of a Benchmark DAC3 HGC feeding directly Classé Audio CAM 600 Monoblocks which sounded reasonably good. I was always on the line regarding the ...

Jay, happy that you like the Furutech outlets. Just be patient with these babies. They will improve over the coming weeks. I have installed 3 of these in my system and value them as the best bang for the buck tweak.

I’ve had the same experience with the Furutech GTX-D NCF(R) receptacles. They are a must in any high-end audio system. I’ve installed them on my 3 dedicated 20A/10A gauge power lines. They will lower the noise floor, providing low-level musical de...

First, second and third video is demo #2 for me. Timbre of voices is so natural compared to demo #1. Demo #1 lacks some midrange body and sounds a little too bright for my own taste.

Tried every SR fuses in my system. Red, Black, Blue and Orange. While I was somewhat skeptical about the benefits of audiophile fuses, my opinion has changed as soon as I tried them. The Orange are the best offering by SR. It just opens up the sou...
