Will the SA8005 decode MQA?
I can input DSD via USB A, I was thinking MQA was streamed in something like DSD, not a codec. Never really messed with it, but regardless how I have my Aries Mini setup, I can only see 44.1 on my 8005.If anyone using this setup can input higher t... 
Will the SA8005 decode MQA?
I agree about being "analytical" ..not the best description. I guess I don't want an in your face, strong high frequency presence, sharp midrange, but a smooth signature without being muddy.When I say analytical, in worst case form, I was meaning ... 
Preamp dillema for McCormack Ultra Platinum
Sorry for the lengthy wait on the update....I’ve spent quite a bit of time with this preamp and can say it’s definitely a welcome addition having full analog pass-through.The transparency and detail quickly became apparent and mates well with my g... 
SR Atmosphere level 2 RCA opinions
Thanks David, I actually have the Furutech outlet now, but I do have two of the blue fuses at the moment.Mains fuse for the RLD-1, as well as the mains fuse for the DNA-1. I heard the difference immediately with the DNA-1, the upper treble was cle... 
PS Audio DS Jr vs. SR
Thanks @scotte_1, been eyeballing them as well as the P10....hard to decide on what to get first...lol. 
PS Audio DS Jr vs. SR
I appreciate all the input, sorry for the late reply. I will hold off and look into a Sr., I had some funds set aside and had to treat my room and had the itch to pull the trigger on a Jr.snopro, thank you for the heads up. 
HAVE ALL SALES STOPPED ON AUDIOGON ???
One possible factor could be the rapidly changing technology. Some gear can be outdated before the year is over, sparking interest near the end of year for some good deals.Hard to pull the trigger on something if a successor is already announced s... 
HAVE ALL SALES STOPPED ON AUDIOGON ???
@mitch2 Think of it this way, without the power of Audiogon's audience, would you be likely to capture the highest value of your hypothetical $3,200 amp or would you be more likely to have to settle for something less?I hope I'm not sounding like ... 
HAVE ALL SALES STOPPED ON AUDIOGON ???
Yeah, I remember that about the difference in selling price to the shipping fees. I agree more eyes are on ebay, but the 10% is greedy.Could be the buyer protection along with the stock. From what I recall, the 10% happened about 5-6 years ago? Lo... 
HAVE ALL SALES STOPPED ON AUDIOGON ???
@mitch2Really? Considering the marketing power of placing your ad where thousands of audiophiles can see it, the business process and computing power that allows your potential buyers to make on-line offers that you can review and respond to witho... 
HAVE ALL SALES STOPPED ON AUDIOGON ???
I haven't sold anything on ebay in years, but recently I discovered their 10% fee on electronics and was shocked to say the least.I was going to start a new thread on it but seems it's been discussed before.I can see a 2% kickback, maybe...but 10%... 
Auralic vega G1 vs ifi i DSD pro
Bump..as I'm looking into these as well. 
Looking at Brooklyn DAC+ or possibly Supremo
I may even remove the Brooklyn+ from the list and debate the ifi Pro iDSD and the Auralic Vega. 
Looking at Brooklyn DAC+ or possibly Supremo
Interesting you brought up the preamp.....I was ready to either going to try for a Pass X1 or the P10, or have the RLD-1 upgraded.Once I found a sweet spot with my IC's, litz chassis wire, and Clarity CMR's....the RLD-1 sounds hauntingly transpare... 
Preamp dillema for McCormack Ultra Platinum
Long awaited update but I was able to find a RLD-1 in excellent condition  for just under $500....should be here tomorrow.I would like to find a good tubed pre again that matches my system but I want to wait and save some more and get what I want....
