Amazon Launches Lossless "Hi-rez" HD Music Service
So far so good. I upgraded Amazon to HD and it sounds very good. The interface is different than TIDAL but it shouldn't be too difficult to navigate. My stereo is far from great YBA electronic into Vandersteens with a Scott Nixon dac but for CD qu...

Okay hw do I sign up? The website hasn't been helpful. 
Amazon Launches Lossless "Hi-rez" HD Music Service
I think it's a usb version of the TD2.2. I've had it since 2006 and don't change equipment often. I think I'll be okay. 
Amazon Launches Lossless "Hi-rez" HD Music Service
I have a TIDAL account with a Scott Nixon dac so no hi-rez necessary. Do you think switching over to Amazon is worthwhile? Yes I have a Prime account. 
Anyone have a Little Fwend tonearm lifter?
I have had a Tru-Lift on my SOTA for 30+ years and it's never let me down. They're $275 these days but they have a lifetime warranty. 
What is the best solid state amplifier you have ever heard?
I like my YBA 2 amp with Vandersteen 2 speakers. Is it the best I'm sure it isn't but it gives me enough to stop looking. 
2000-2500 USD budget for an integrated amplifier. Do amplifiers sound the same? :)
I'm not a fan of Klipsch speakers but whatever. The Belles Aria integrated is the best I've heard in your budget. 75 watts/ch but that's not your concern. 
I have a 2 preamp and 3 dual transfo amp riving Vandersteens and have been happy going on 25 years. These pieces ere made in France by YBA himself and I stopped looking after I bought them as demos. If you like music and are not as concerned about... 
From tubes to SS amp : Ayre, Belles, Pass or else ?
I like tubes but I wanted a cool running amp that had a tube flavor so I went with YBA. I'm using a YBA 3 amp with dual transformers into Vandersteen 2 speakers. I've heard YBA mate well with Audio Physics speakers and that may be something to con... 
MQA is Legit!
It my be legit but the first unfold to 24/88.2 or 96 sounds better to me. I have an MQA dac and I guess there's more detail but tone wise it sounds washed out. I'll take musical over detailed any day. 
Integrated recommendation with Vandersteen 2C
The too much bass problem I believe has a lot to do with not having the speakers on stands. I never listened to them on the floor but I would never recommend it. The YBA amp doesn't produce the same amount of bass as my Krell or Rotel amps but the... 
Integrated recommendation with Vandersteen 2C
Get the Sound Anchor stands first, nothing you do with the Vandersteens matters until you do that first.I play Vandersteen 2Ce with a YBA 2 power amp w/ 70w in a room your size and it's plenty. So the Sim Audio i5 should work. I also have a Krell ... 
New DAC not streaming hi res files
Does the dac do 24/192 with coax or just uusb 
iFi Nano Black Label upgrade
I have the ifi Nano LE but have it matched with tubes and Vandersteen speakers and it doesn't present as spare. What I would suggest is an NOS dac like the Metrum Acoustic Octave II. These days they think every dac has to have detail above musical... 
Parasound P5 + A23 vs Musical Fidelity M5si
I'm guessing the Music Fidelity is a digital amp where the Parasound is an analog amp design. It has to do with the type of amp design not the type of sources it can accept.
