Underwood Hifi / Underwood Wally...
Bought a pair of Silverline Prelude Plus speakers from Underwood HiFi several years back. Great price. Product as described. Smooth transaction. Would do business again.Walter is a veteran in the industry.  I believe (could have things a bit garbl... 
Auralic Aries
@jond Yup...still digging it.  It is the source I listen to the most...whether CDs I've ripped or Tidal (sometimes Spotify).  I've got very similar years on mine as you.  Don't want it to die but if it does, will have to try out that G1. 
Auralic Aries
+whatever on Aries, @rfnoise.  Hope you enjoy yours for a long time.I also have an Aries Mini. Blame jond. Bought soon after he did. Never a lick of trouble and NOT noisy. I run wirelessly and use an iFi power supply (with their proprietary noise ...

@jafant You’ve probably done more than anyone to keep this thread alive! But dude, I mean, yeah, Donovan...good choice for the hour but yeesh, 3AM! Don’t you ever sleep? or maybe it’s shiftwork?? Do enjoy seeing what you listen to although DeBarge... 
Shunyata Research alpha hc vs Shunyata Research original black mamba
@thyname Hello to you.  Yes...your explanation is exactly the rationale I was given for choosing XC vs NR.   
Shunyata Research alpha hc vs Shunyata Research original black mamba
@docknow No way for me to give you any kind of meaningful quantitative answer on the difference.  I would characterize the benefit of the Delta v2 over the Alpha v1 as incremental vs the almost component level upgrade type improvement the Venom HC... 
Shunyata Research alpha hc vs Shunyata Research original black mamba
I tried a Venom HC (v1) power cord on an Isotek Aquarius power conditioner. It provided a significant improvement to the sound over the as-supplied Isotek Premier cord. I also spent time listening with Delta NR v1 and v2 cords as well as an Alpha ... 
Jazz for aficionados
Responding to Inna...Great solo, yes...BUT - "Check out guitar GeorgeHe knows all the chordsMind, it’s strictly rhythmHe doesn’t want to make it cry or sing....".The CHORDS! is always where it’s at.

Traveling so the "system" here is MacBook Air >> Dragonfly Red to earbuds.Listened (and enjoyed) Cotton Mather's "Death of the Cool".Great lines from track 2, Close to the Sun...."I want you my love, but I feel destined for a different sort ... 
What are you streaming tonight?
@jjss49 Agree with you about the ACT label. Quality repertoire. Kinda reminds me of ECM in that regard. Another recording to check out if you haven’t come across it (in somewhat the same style as the Liberetto music...similar "mood" anyway): Espen... 
..so you think there's no need.......
@stringreen Had a somewhat similar startling experience trying a v1 Venom HC power cord on a Taranis Class D amp.  As I recall, it replaced a Pangea AC-9.  Used Venom HCs come up for sale fairly often.   Might be an option for you (a pair, for tha...

Nutty - okay! I can hear what you like in that track. Great energy. GREAT playing. No shrinking violet she. Love her soloing when she stretches out. Definitely sounds like someone worth seeing/hearing live. BUT at the same time I quickly remembere...

Thanks, Nutty. I’ll have to check that specific JST live track later this evening. I know I’ve sampled her live stuff in the past...just didn’t click for me the way some of her studio albums do. But I’ll give her live another shot. Welcome, Speake...
