Amazing Service from Galibier Turntables
As an update,I purchased some cables from Galibier including a tonearm cable.  A few months after I purchased my tonearm cable, Thom made a slight modification to the sleeve on the outside of the cable that he discovered made a significant improve... 
Innuos - New Re-Clocker
I can't speak to using an ethernet cable from an Innuos to a dac, but at RMAF, Innuos was using a usb cable.  I presume Innuos used the usb because it felt that would best show off its product.  Nevertheless, if you own a dac like mine, a light ha... 
Looking for a great preamp for our store Backert labs vs Wells Audio vs Zesto
Hi Dave and Troy,I have owned an Audio  Research (ARC) LS 17SE and currently own the ARC REF 10 and love them both.  Admittedly, I love the ARC sound, so understand that I may be biased.  I heard the Zesto at RMAF a few years ago and it also sound... 
DCS Rossini + Digital or Puccini + CDs?
keiserrg, in response, I think you made a wise choice on skipping a Lumin -- i have tested a few lumins and did not find them appealing.  However, I did hear the Innuos Zenith with the Phoenix and it was excellent as a server/player.  The Phoenix... 
Innuos - New Re-Clocker
I was at RMAF and heard the Zenith MKIII, then heard the Zenith MK III with the Phoenix reclocker and then heard the Statement.  I sat through that demo 3 or 4 times and the Phoenix reclocker made a huge difference and greatly improved the Zenith ... 
RMAF - Innuos Demo
I was at RMAF and heard the demo where Innuos played the Zenith MKIII, then played the same song with the Zenith MKIII and the Phoenix reclocker and then the same song with the Statement.  I was in the room for 3 or 4 of these demos (each demo the... 
Great Customer Service From Simaudio
Hi canibefrank,yes, dinner included drinks.  Yes, they did fix the problem with their new Mind 2 streamers, including the newer 280d's. 
Galibier cables crushed my Nordost Frey 2 cables
Millercarbon, I have only tried one synergistic research cable, and it was a power cable for a Boulder 2060 amplifier that i had, but no longer have.   
Music Server Recommendation
Audiotroy,I was at RMAF in early October and spent a portion of the early morning on Saturday in the two Innuos rooms and had a chance to talk to the owner and designer for Innuos and his wife as well as the importer: I was the only one in the roo... 
Great Customer Service From Simaudio
SFAR I concur -- Simaudio's gear is well built and sounds great.  This was more of a problem with the connection to Tidal, as it turned out.  But Simaudio also does an amazing job on those rare occasions when things don't work perfectly.  Great pr... 
Help Picking a turntable
Hello Everyone,2channel8 your idea on a good set of headphones when doing demos is great -- i never thought of that -- great way not to have to worry about different speakers.  Thanks for pointing that out to me and everyone.   A few updates -- I ... 
Who wants the best improvement in their system EVER!
Yes, Soundings is Rod in Denver who does the Master Set.  I know Rod, and while he is great at speaker placement, figuring out how to respond to posts is not his strong suit.  I'm on the phone with Rod now and he will be responding next week (with... 
MAC Book Pro Computer vs Aurender N100h vs Aurender N10 Music Servers
Thanks so much hgeifman, that was super helpful.  That first link made it much clearer about what is going on.  I greatly appreciate the help.  I didn't understand that the Tidal app only unfolds part of the MQA and that you need a dac to unfold t... 
MAC Book Pro Computer vs Aurender N100h vs Aurender N10 Music Servers
hgeifman,this is a great thread and you provide a ton of great information.  Thank you.  I have a few questions, but before I get to them, please excuse my ignorance about computer stuff and MQA in general.  If my questions are stupid, I apologize...
