Digital upgrade: new disc player or better streamer?
I'm also a Lumin dealer, so it's going to be very interesting to compare the T2 to the 150. 
Digital upgrade: new disc player or better streamer?
Hifi Rose is new to the US, so probably limited number of people here that's heard it.  I've signed on with Mofi Distribution to be a dealer for Hifi Rose.....first units (hopefully) to arrive this month.  They seem to get lots of good reviews ove... 
Amp recommendations for Spendor
@colpgmrguy -- I'm in NC as well!  Give me a shout if you would like, I would love to help.  I'm a Spendor dealer.As an FYI, I have a Rogue Cronus Mag III demo here, so you would be able to hear it if it's something that interests you.I'm also pre... 
Amp recommendations for Spendor
*Spendor dealer disclaimer*I don't really think that there is a "set" amplifier that you need to go with to match well with Spendor...they tend to play nicely with lots of different amps (both the A and D series).You mentioned Luxman and Cary.  Do... 
KEF ls50 meta’s are on the way
@curiousjim --**KEF dealer disclaimer**Just wanted to add a couple a quick things for your questions....  The Metas are not super troublesome with room setup.  If you need to run them somewhat close to a wall, they will work (especially when utili... 
Looking for some opinions on some digital components my dealer recommends
I've been a Torus Power dealer for a while now.  In my opinion, the TOT Max is one of the best values in power conditioners available today.  It's really a nice unit (I use them in my main demo room).If you are also worried about surge protection,... 
Best skiinny floorstanders
Spendor A Series and D Series are both fairly skinny, and nice options.  As mentioned a couple times above, the Joseph Audio Perspective is a fantastic choice as well!(*dealer disclaimer...I'm a dealer for both Joseph and Spendor) 
Bel Canto Dac 3.7 in 2018?
@cnb3   I don't really know much about the Innous options, but a quick look appears to show it has coax and toslink out, so you should be able to use those.  If you want to use USB out, you will want a RefLink/ULink/ 
Bel Canto Dac 3.7 in 2018?
@cnb3 I'm a Bel Canto dealer, so I can perhaps help a bit here.  If you can get a good deal on the 3.7, I think you will for sure like the differences b/t it and your current 1.7.  The 1.7 is a nice little dac, but the 3.7 really does take it up a... 
HELP! Large speakers fell over during shipping.
Are you sure the seller didn't accidentally ship them upside down?  Not sure how they could flip over when packed on a pallet.  ( or do you think they fell off the pallet and the shipping company put them back on the pallet? ) If there's no cosmet... 
Need a new amp
I'm a dealer for both Line Magnetic and Cary, so can perhaps help a bit. Both are very good options, although I've never heard either with Golden Ear speakers.Obviously one is an integrated and the other mono-block amps.  Would you prefer the inte... 
Clearaudio vs EAT turntables
What cartridge are you thinking about?  (or are you putting your Hana on the new table)The Pure Fidelity Encore with OL Silver arm will be right around your price range, and it's also a very nice table. 
Which speakers, if any, combine the strengths of Harbeth and ProAc ?
What are the strengths of each brand that you are looking for? 
KEF LS50 Meta and 40-ish WPC Tube Amps
It would work, but you're pretty close in price point to a Rogue Cronus Magnum III that will give you 100 watts per channel.  It's a nice match with the METAS.  (I sell both Rogue and KEF as a disclaimer) 
Bookshelf speakers for small room
That Luxman is a cool integrated, but obviously a touch pricey as it will take up basically half of your budget.In addition to the Harbeths, Spendor Classic 3/1 would be fun with that size room and the Luxman.That will leave you about $3500 for th...
