Vincent Audio SV-500 Arriving Today

Audiolab CDT 6000 breaking in nice. Very neutral. A bit soft. Very laid back in my modest system. 
Do you like your speakers aimed directly at each ear or....

Best DAC for around $2,500 or less

Cambridge Audio Azur 651C vs Azur 851C
For me the 851C was superb in revealing system, but I really like the 651C in my second system. The 851C is a bit more analytical, the 651C a bit smoother.  
Audioquest or Kimber kable.
I have used Audioquest Type 4 for years. I did try Audioquest type 8 not sure there was a difference. The type 4 work well for me. Never tried Kimber. Have thought about it but why for what the AQ is giving me.

Breaking in an Audiolab 6000cdt now. Only at about 30 hours. I like it. I have a Wyred DAC-2 to perform conversion. I like this combo. The 6000cdt seems very neutral. 
Another sad tale, hopefully Ian can make plans and peace with the world
"As long as he social distances"  What? How is this related?
