Connecting a sub which way to go
I am using both methods.Main system has Vandy Treo's and 2wq subs using the Vandy Crossover.Office has the VLR's and a pair of Hsu subs running off the speaker connections.I like my Main system best, but the Office is no slouch. I might put in the...

Thanks, Ozzy.I have more faith now that Underwood Wally has taken the helm.I have never dealt with him, but his good reputation precedes him.B

Spotify and incoming sampling rates........
One of the reasons for going with the Mini is that I am having issues with using Spotify and Deezer through the Bluesound App,Bluesound has been very helpful, but can't replicate the problem on their side, and Spotify runs as a separate app on Blu... 
Are manufacturers having discussions removed from Audiogon if they turn negative?
Gentlemen and Ladies,It is this kind of banter that gets threads deleted.I know some posters can post something that gets your kickers in a twist, but, think before you post. Most times, just using a logical retort can put them in their place.We a... 
Spotify and incoming sampling rates........
If I read you correctly, you might want to look at a Bluesound Node.You can either use the inboard DAC or output to a DAC of your choice.I use the Node with an Ayre Codex, and have nothing to complain about.I am also in the process of getting Sam ... 
Aurender vs. Roon
@audiotroy Thanks, but no thanks. I wanted to offer the OP my opinion between the two manufacturers he asked about. But, now that you have injected a third company, I feel it only fair to point him to a fourth- Sam Laufer's Memory Player. Though n...

It was a weird thread.Both the OP and Mr. Alexander never revealed all the details of the order, and why it went the way it did.Anyhoo, I hope both parties have reached a mutually satisfactory agreement.B 
What are "true" balanced connectors
@luynes You don’t have a clue as to what the ’balanced’ spec is.  This is evident in your original post.I just pointed you to a person who has experience with Balanced Topology. That you find that unacceptable is your problem.And, if you wanted to...
