Speaker recommendation $10-20K (with some requirements!)
Dyanudios are opposite of harsh in my experience.  Maybe the new versions have changed?? 
Dynaudio resolution
I've had many a set of Dynaudios including the C4s.  I do think of Dynaudio house sound as a bit on the mellow side but in the best possible way.  I think Kef is that way too a little bit but more of a dry sound.  If you are looking for very sharp... 
Anyone here with Magico A3 driven by Bel Canto Ref600's?
To add some fuel to the fire here.  I don't have the Magico speakers but I do own the Theta Prometheus class D monos and also have, First Watt J2 and F6 and Pass 30.8 also have the Decware Zen triode tube amp. I feed mine directly from a DCS Rossi... 
High end Class D amps?
I have first watt J2 and F6 and also have Theta Prometheus class D 400 watt monos.  About as polar opposite as you can go.  I have great thoughts of both he first watt and Theta.  For sure class D can sound good anyone who lays a blanket statement... 
I Was Considering Active, Then I Watched This ...
I think this is a great post from the Audiophiliac.  I personally love powered speakers and have many but they are in my secondary system. They are great for that.  Steve is right though a real audiophile should have separates.  If you are into th... 
To Roon or not
Another 2 thumbs up for Roon here.  I love it and can't imagine life without it.   
High End Ethernet Cables ....Real Deal or Snake Oil
I upgraded my stock generic type ethernet from my Roon nucleus to my router and to my DCS Rossini DAC.  I liked the improvement I went back and forth a number of times and overall the Audioquest Diamond ethernet is a fuller richer sound.  I have h... 
Is Anyone Else Not Being Able to Stay Logged in?
Yes I'm having the same issue.  Also the new today doesn't seem to be listing ads as they are posted.  Is has something like 750 ads and it's not that much many redundancies.   
Qobuz vs Tidal
I think Qobuz sounds a tiny bit better.  If I am going to play something and it's available on both I go for Qobuz.  I subscribe to both I'm sort of locked in with tidal since I've been there so long but for me 150 a year is worth it to get better... 
Jazz is not Blues and Blues is not Jazz.......
I have had the same thought before and wondered why they get lumped together.  I agree two totally different vibes.  When I think of what I like about jazz it's the core concept of it.  When I think about what I don't like about blues it's the cor... 
JBL 4367 shoutiness remedies?
to all you 4367 experts.  I am thinking of getting a pair.  I am not going to be able to audition so it's a leap of faith.  I have Kef Blade 2 and also Klipsch Forte III.  I'm liking the Forte III with a First Watt J2 amp (30 watts) Not like the b... 
Old vs New, an experience with Dynaudio.
Fun and funny read.  Old Dynaudio is a thick and warm sound to my ears.  I've had many Dynaudio speakers and I really like their house sound.  Seem like they have gone for a more transparent top end and lost some of the warmth.  It's such a fine l... 
Any advantage to Bluesound Node 2i Versus Streaming from PC
Roon is a deep dive if you take it.  I was frustrated at first with it but am so glad I stuck it out.  I can't imagine life without it.  It's the most important piece in my system.  Seems like many are confused by how it works.  Roon is the softwa... 
Any advantage to Bluesound Node 2i Versus Streaming from PC
I assume you have the TDAI 1120?  Its all setup to receive roon RAAT via wifi so basically you could run the roon software on your windows machine and then send the signal over your network.  You don't need the node 2i it's just redundant if your ... 
Any advantage to Bluesound Node 2i Versus Streaming from PC
The main draw with Roon is the awesome user interface as well as the sound quality is better than say iTunes.  You would have to run the roon core software on a computer then from there you can send to your DAC as a RAAT (Roon Advanced Audio Trans...
