Schiit Urd CD Transport vs Marantz CD6007 Player
Considering the transport is not available yet nor has a photo been released nobody can say what the difference will be. 
How much difference in Sound quality can be expected from different streamers?
Yea, there are big differences between streamers.  Quality of components, EMI/RFI shielding, linear power supplies, etc...all contribute to the sound of the streamer.  That being said I heard an improvement when I switched from my Node 2i to an Au... 
Reel to Reel Woes
You said it yourself.  You have a high end system so buy a completely refurbished/rebuilt deck for $5,000.   
To a great degree, what format sounds better will depend heavily on the recording.  Modern music recorded digitally sounds better than that same digital recording being put on vinyl...to my ears.   
CD or Streaming... am I missing out?
It my system CD sounds better.  It's a tie when comparing CD's to CD's ripped on the hard drive of my music server with the CD Transport adding a little bloom around the midrange that locally stored rips playing on a music server don't have.  I th... 
Paying with a cashiers check? Need advice!
I would pass. If the seller wants to use Audiogon or other online forums he needs to be prepared to accept forms of payment which are the norm. It makes no sense that he says he is old school when he is using the internet to sell his gear. If you ... 
Luxman L-590AXII vs Pass Labs INT-60
You can audition Pass Labs gear.  Call reno hifi...talk to mark.  Buy a INT-60.  Use it for a couple weeks and if you don't like it send it back for a refund with no restocking fees.  It will cost you shipping and that's it but if want to be sure ...

Better Integrated Amp?
What's your budget ? 
Why so many angry audiophiles?
Because we spend so much money on our systems and are always looking for that last ounce of improvement and are rarely satisfied. I hope to be one day...but then I will hear about a new dac, powerchord, etc...and well you know what comes next. Bei... 
JBL 4349 or Klipsch Cornwall IV
Well, for low volume listening I think you can't get much better than the Cornwall.  It sounds full and rich at low volumes.  The Cornwall sounds really great with low powered tube amps but your current amp will also work fine as well. 
Innuos Zenith mk3 complete disappointment
Was it a new Zenith MK3?  I have heard that the unit takes around 200 hours to burn in. I know a few users that said the exact same thing your saying but once burned in everything changed for the better. Also, you can’t use an entry level usb cabl... 
Schiit - shipments stopped?
No, they are backordered due to supply chain issues.  They just did a live you tube video talking about their new CD transport which will be released sometime this year and various other things.  
Point of higher priced streamer?
There are major differences between streamers that can be heard. Each streamer when connected to a dac puts out varying amounts of jitter and electrical noise/interference which can generated by the streamer and or nearby electrical components, wi... 
Does Anyone Think CD is Better Than Vinyl/Analog?
I find cd's better if the original recording was recorded digitally such as with a lot/most of modern music.  Music recorded analog sounds better on vinyl...as a general rule IMO.
