Recommendations for high quality Streaming Audio:
I have a serious question on this topic: Does your internet provider matter, as far a the quality of sound. I am not claiming it does not exist, but I am skeptical, because I have never heard streamed music sound as good as a good CD on my syste... 
Best Price To Performance Power Cords for Systems that range 10K-20K
I think it's a great opportunity for people to explore. It normally costs less than a component upgrade, and it can make a noticeable of difference. Especially if your components take well to them or if you have to deal with dirty power more often...

I'll throw in another vote for the Cambridge CXN V2. I've had mine for a few months now and I love it. I selected it over the Node2i for a few reasons. I like that it serves as a digital hub. I can run a CD transport into it, stream Tidal and Spot... 
Best Price To Performance Power Cords for Systems that range 10K-20K
I like this idea of breaking down the threads by price brackets. I do believe as you scale up in gear that things like cable become a more vital part of your system. But I also feel that in the 10-20K range, a lot of people don't feel cables will ... 
Spotify sound inprovement.
I haven't noticed any improvements in Spotify's sound. Currently running Tidal and Spotify. Too many features on Spotify to give it up, even with the lower quality files. The playlist sharing, music suggestion algorithms, free hulu, etc. I would s...

Streamer vs. CD Transport
One thing that I’ve learned from this, is the immense difference cables make on the quality of the sound.  It’s a night and day difference between the two cables.I was beginning to think something was wrong with my system until I went back to the ... 
Any like the Cambridge CXN v2 streamer?
I love my CXN V2, so I'll answer as many questions as I can. 1) How’s it sound? Is regular internet radio significantly or just slight improved from some thing like I have( Pioneer Elite N-30) or other $500 range streamers out there?I can't speak ... 
Tubes or not
I really liked the Musical Paradise MP-D2 when I heard it. It's a modular design that allows for upgrading DAC chips and other parts down the road as well. I think it's a killer buy for the money. Maybe someone else can speak to how it compares to... 
Rega P6/ or Clearaudio Concept, both with same cartridge?
I'm not going to talk about the sound, but based on your description I am going to point out one very important feature/quirk. The Clearaudio has and adjustable VTA, and I believe their dustcovers easily work with the arm on it's maximum height. T...

Revel speakers - dealer scuttlebutt
Samsung is defiantly a power house in entertainment they seem to have every angle covered now. Look at it this way, Samsung now is making all the parts for the experience. Everyone hates on Bixby in their smartphones (because it sucks still), but ...

Harman isn't known for selling off brands. They do have a history of buying brands for tech and then killing off the brand slowly. Samsung is letting Harman continue to operate on it's own much more than many of it's past acquisitions (at least fo... 
Revel speakers - dealer scuttlebutt
Revel just announced multiple new models at CEDIA. That doesn't happen for brands Harman intends to drop. If they go year after year without any releases or updates... that's when a product line is in trouble. You can also normally find industry n...
