Looking for warm tube preamp (should pair well with Pass power amp), budget $6000
I really like my Backert Rhumba 1.3 pre with a Pass XA30.8.  Great bass, dynamics and musicality.  
Hegel owners - what speakers are you using
I have an older H160, and it is currently paired with some Buchardt S400's.  Pretty nice!  
Reynaud Bliss Jubile vs Cantabile Jubile
I don’t think you will be disappointed.  I love my CJ’s, and they are very similar to the Bliss (Silvers in my case), just more, as has been said.  Very amp friendly as well.  
High efficiency desktop speakers
Consider some LS3/5a speakers.  My Rogers sound incredible as a desktop computer system with any number of amps.  Right now I’m driving them with a 20wpc Vista Spark, but when the weather gets cold I’ll switch over to a Sugden A21SE.  Even better ... 
Suggest your most desired MSRP $1,500-$3,000 Stand Mount for a Shootout.
JMR Bliss Silvers should compare very well with others mentioned.  I really like mine!  
Recommendation on speakers for listening to live music
Heard some Klipsch Jubilees today and when I closed my eyes, felt like the band was in the room!  The room was huge, and the sound filled it completely.  
New Klipsch Conwalls (IV)
Loving my CW IV’s with LTA MZ2 as integrated amp with one wpc.  But I’m breaking bad later this year and moving up to a Decware with 2.3wpc.  Watch out!  
Meitner MA3 amp/integrated suggestions
Valvet might be another option,especially used.  
Lumin Roon Only Mode
I’m doing this, no problems so far.  I haven’t tried to leave roon only mode yet.  
Less Is Really More - Schiit's New Yggdrasil DAC - Less Is More
Just a comment related to the LTA MZ, I am currently using mine as a 1wpc integrated to power some Cornwall IV’s.  I’m sure there are better combinations, but this one sounds incredible at low to moderate volume levels.  
Best Sound Track Ever Vote for One
“Hi Fidelity” with John Cusak and Jack Black.  
Need an integrated amp that sounds engaging at lower volume
I’ve heard the Enleum 23R sounds very good at low volume levels.  Can’t verify, never had the opportunity.  
Best low power amps under 800$ (10-60 w)
Rega I/O.  
Bluesound and BluOS
No issues when hardwired.  
Too many choices for R2R DACS--opinions appreciated
Just saw on Headfi forum that Gustard is about to come out with a new R to R DAC called the R26.
