Advice on Music
Received both albums, Ella & Louis and Temptation.Both sound really good. I need to get more of the oldies.More Ella F, Frank S and all of that good stuff. 
Understanding DAC's
Thanks for your input Jazzman, I guess that does make sense.I hope more quality DSD Albums become available. I recently bought the album, Temptations on DSD and if I had any doubt in the capability of DSD, then this album restored it back. Sounds ... 
Whats on your turntable tonight?
Temptation - Chantal ChamberlandJust received this today.What an excellent record. This LP makes my humble system sound half way decent.  
Any Opinions on the Quad Artera Solus

Ordered the album Ella & Louis on LP, should be a good one I think.Also ordered (this is a modern album) Temptation by Chantal Chamberland. I have this on DSD and it is incredible but I also want to hear it on LP (compare and contrast).If you ...

Phil Collins...But Seriously  
Thoughts on choosing an amplifier
Whats wrong with asking for advice even if the OP feels that he/she may not end up with the best match.Perhaps after asking for advice and receiving positive suggestions, the OP may actually end with a good match or matches. It's only after asking...

Question about Tone Controls + Equalizers
kphasap,When using the Loki, do you keep the tone controls on your Marantz defeated (off)?It wouldn't be advisible to use The Loki and the tone controls from the Marantz at the same, correct? Thanks 
Question about Tone Controls + Equalizers
Thanks for the inputs and suggestions.Those Anthem and Trinnov units look incredible but unfortunately out of my price range.I am quite happy with my system at the moment but was curious about the tone controls and how others use them, if at all (...

Thanks for all the suggestions. I think what I am going to do is, first pull these albums/tracks up on Qobuz ( if they have it), find which ones I like to get a taste and then go on the hunt to find them on LP format. 
What is your most beautiful component?
My Martin Logan Motion 40 Speakers!And now that I got a new TT, 2nd runner up: Mofi Studiodeck. 
Amplifier pairing with Martin Logan Motion 20s ...?
I am sure any of those amps would do you well with your ML's but I will throw in my own suggestion also.I have the motion 40's and love them also, paired to a Vincent SV-500 Hrybrid Integrated and I feel they sound great together,  no matter what ... 
Finally bought a new Turntable!
I might have to clarify something, maybe I made it sound like I had to turn up the volume very high. That is not what I meant, initially I mean that I had to turn it up a little higher then I had to when I was using my Denon.But after adjusting th...
