Buy a $40,000 used DAC for $4,000 or a new one for the same amount?
I would  rather have a 10 year old 40K DAC for 4K than a brand new 4K DAC.  It would be a leap of faith but my guess is the 40K unit even at 10 years old will still be better.  I recently compared in my home a 35K DAC setup with a 5K DAC setup and... 
DCS Rossini and master clock questions
Yes I am running direct as that is the way my prior DAC was and I don't have a preamp anymore at this point and no need for one.  So that is all I know.  I have been happy with Audioquest diamond cables so I will probably go that route for the BNC... 
DCS Rossini and master clock questions
great advice.  Thank you.  I am still in shock at how much better this sounds than my old DAC.  Just an insane upgrade like nothing I've ever experienced in all my years of hifi.  I have yet to hook up the clock.  I am running it with the network ... 
DCS Rossini dac owners
I just bought a Rossini and clock.  I have only hooked up the Rossini so far and I am so blown away by just the DAC alone.  It is just an insane ridiculous jump from my prior DAC.  I wanted to get a good handle on the sound of just the DAC before ... 
Any Comments RE: Soundiiz imports your playlists and favorites easily from TIDAL to Qobuz
it works pretty good for me.  I use it to go back and forth between tidal and spotify and it works great.  Sometimes Tidal won't have some of the music that spotify has but that is not anything against this program.  It works quick and easy.  I wi... 
Ordered a Roon Nucleus Plus
I just installed a nucleus + a couple weeks ago.  Also of course Roon.  I have been very impressed at the sound.  The program is great it seems, rather quirky and doesn't make a lot of common sense to me but I'm figuring things out.  I am noticing... 
New Bluesound's Node 2i
I bought a node 2i so that I can get sound into my main rig while I don't have internet here for a few months.  I live in the camp fire area and we are without internet so I thought that I could stream from my phone to the node 2i and into my big ... 
Spotify vs other streaming services
If you are a music lover then Spotify, if you are a sound lover then Tidal.  If you are both then both.  It's true Spotify blows the doors off Tidal for content and ease and enjoyment of use.  I use Spotify for casual listening and when I want to ... 
KEF blades 2 or Dynaudio C4?
I owned both. I recently sold my C4 which I owned for 8 years to go to the blade 2. I had a couple months with the salon 2 in between as well. I like the blade 2 better. A lot better. C4 is nice but an old design and I think the dealer getting all... 
Harbeth 30.1 ? The Ultimate Speaker under $5K ?
You can't fix that room without a major hassle and it might not even work and who knows your room might be magic, no one can know they are all different and even when planned out to the Nth degree can sound bad.   The best you can hope for is to f... 
Dynaudio Focus CD 200/20 owners
Strange, I have owned the Xeo 3s ever since they came out.  I was in line to get a pair immediately when they came out.  I have not had a single issue with mine.  I have the original module, not the connect with mine and have the hooked to an Appl... 
Thinking of Kef Blade 2 to replace Revel Salon 2
Back to the original topic.  I did get the Blade 2s and the Salon 2s are now sold.  Overall I am happy with the switch.  I was amazed to hear that the Blade 2s completely dominate the Salon 2s in the bass in my room.  I was a little worried that t... 
KEF Reference 5-Isoacoustics GAIA?
I got them for my Kef Blade 2s from Crutchfield on 60 day return ability.  They are staying.  I can't say they blew my mind like I was hoping but they make a nice improvement and I also like how they grip the speaker to my hardwood floor and make ...

Surprised
To each his won I guess. I've found my favorite subs are the ones turned all the way off.  I've tried many times to get a sub or subs to work and was constantly messing with it and always found I'd rather just have it off.  In a small room I'd rat...
