I too would love to hear about this comparison. Anyone heard both? 
Where is Mach2music.com?
I have not done that yet but the PI Audio group person that I corresponded with did mention that they can do that upgrade. You can find them at piaudiogroup.com.

Apparently they have. I tried very hard to contact someone a month or so ago to purchase a unit. No response. Finally corresponded with an associate of theirs (PI Audio) who mentioned that the company had been sold and that the new owner was worki...

Vintage Fisher, What's best 500C/B or 800B?
Can't help you with which one of those is better, but I recently had an X-100-B restored by Paul Grzybek of Tube Audio Design and I can highly recommend him. He did a great job and the amp sounds incredible. 
Best DAC from $1500 to $2500 or so
I went from an EE mm to a W4S Dac-2. It was not an improvement to my ears, very similar. The Dac-2 though had balanced outs and asynchronous USB options which I wanted. Unless you need more flexibility, the EE for sound quality is hard to beat IMO. 
Opinions on the Nola Contender please
I too would like to hear some feedback on these. I had Boxers for a while and they were very good. I would think the Contenders are also, but very little info on them so far. 
ProAc D38 question
The tweeters should go towards the center. In other words, the speaker with the tweeter positioned toward the left (while facing the drivers) will be the right speaker.

Wyred DAC-2
I would be interested in this also.Thank you.

Valve Audio from South Africa
I had a Predator for a while before going to separates. It is an awesome amp, super power, great tube sound. Built like a tank. Doesn't seem to get mentioned around here very much but I believe it's one of the best.
