Help Ripping an HDCD Encoded CD...
JRiver can decode HDCD. The file just needs to be tagged as HDCD. Use Audio Analyze to do that.dBpoweramp will decode an HDCD and create a 24 bit file with the HDCD bits decoded.  So, when you play it, the blue light on the DAC will not light, sin... 
Why are there few spherical speakers?
I really liked the sound of the Proclaim DMT-100, but they were just too weird for most people at a price of $25,000.https://www.pinterest.com/pin/405464772672124702/ 
No volume control when playing native DSD
DoP delivers the exact same DSD bits to a DAC that the native stream does. However, if you try to change the volume of the PCM stream, you destroy the signal. So, even though DoP is bit perfect DSD, it is not an option for doing volume control.No ... 
Is there a such too much power for speakers?
Not sure about the SE, but the Elipsas have a somewhat demanding low end. They drop to 2.5 ohms around 100 Hz and have a large phase angle around 70 Hz according to the Stereophile review. So, even though they are rated at 91 dB, they may need an ... 
Is there a such too much power for speakers?
The issue with very high power amps and damaging speakers is not from sustained listening but from a sudden burst, which can happen by accident with a bad setting. For example, you can have mute on somewhere back in the chain and try to turn the p... 
Is there a such too much power for speakers?
fundsgone62 - Sonus Faber Cremonas are hard speakers to drive. I agree they require a lot of power (actually a lot of current) to drive them due to their phase angle at low frequencies. I tried multiple amps on them and ended up with Mark Levinson... 
Is there a such too much power for speakers?
One issue is the gain of the amp. The gain needs to match with the gain of the pre-amp and the efficiency of the speakers. If you have a high gain pre-amp and a high gain amp and high efficiency speakers, you may end up with the volume control bei... 
Like the new look to audiogon ?
glenee - They did. Just pick the little square box at the top right and pick classic view.

Al - Agreed - I was just going to report the same thing. You beat me to it. Both zip code and price range work for me. 
Like the new look to audiogon ?
Unfortunately, there are no headers on the restored classic view, so you cannot sort by the header.  I  should be able to sort by category or by price. That seems to have been lost.

milpai - There is an administrator post above saying they will restore the old format as an option. They did listen. 
Radio Paradise Streaming is available on my Aurender Music Server
JRiver is now streaming Radio Paradise in 11/44 flac. 
Like the new look to audiogon ?
The new format is pretty much unusable. I really wonder if they did any user research before implementing this change.  Without the list view, it is very painful to do a quick look at what is for sale. The natural instinct is to resist change. But... 
Is Velodyne gone?
Good to know.  Maybe their website was just offline for some reason. 
Totem Acoustic Element Metal: The WOW factor!
Sorry for the redundant information. I got delayed in posting and klipschking beat me to it.  But I did have the website link. By the way, if you have not looked at Totem's website, take a look. It, like the speakers, is a thing of beauty.
