Amp for Martin Logan Motion 60XT
@chobes That Purifi is a module, not a complete amplifier so unless you are planning to order it and build your own amp, your only Purifi option on the market at this point is the new NAD M33 (if it's even available yet). As far as Class D, perhap... 
Power cable with small connector / termination
@bryhifi That's a good idea, I will check tonight. Thanks! 
Power cable with small connector / termination
Thanks all for the tips. This is for a US 15-amp plug. An IEC isn't that big but all the cables I own have an IEC sticking out of a huge cylindrical head that's the same size as the male end of the plug. Maybe 3 inches is a stretch but definitely ... 
Hunt for new floor standers
@axspike there is one is the best hi-fi stores I've ever been to in Sarasota but everything they sell is way outside your budget I believe. Suncoast Audio, if you want to look it up. 
Hunt for new floor standers
@axspike  there's a place in Lakewood Ranch called Integrity Sound. I think they have a second location in the area too. I'm not from there but have family in the area and I've been to the shop at Lakewood Ranch. They have stuff in your budget ra... 
NAD C658
I owned it for about a month but sent it back. Dirac was late and still undelivered at that point so I can’t comment on that. I just wasn’t happy with the overall sound - a bit too clinical for me but that's personal preference and MANY people lov... 
Has anyone heard the new PS Audio Strata, Integrated Amp/DAC/streamer?
I got an email from them 2 days ago that they are looking for beta testers so I expect it won't be out for maybe a few more months. If you're interested in it, you might also check out the NAD M10 and Arcam SA-30 which are in the same price range ...

Joseph Audio dealers
I'm also looking for dealers, but I'm in the southeast. Will reach out to Goldprint. Anyone know if there's a dealer in FL? I don't live there but have family [email protected] Not exactly where you are looking but there is a dealer in PA called Now... 
Optimal connectivity for watching TV and 2 channel audio
In my opinion, for general TV use a 2.1 setup is better than a 3.0 setup (meaning a pair of L/R speakers and a sub, rather than L/C/R speakers and no sub). If you aren't running a full surround setup, keep your integrated and use the stereo speake... 
Best steaming DAC with room correction
What Anthem units are streaming DACs? As far as I am aware, there is only one product on the market that is a streaming DAC with room correction that ISN'T also an integrated amp, and that's the NAD C-658 you already mentioned. If you look at usin... 
Room Correction without loosing MQA and DSD
Depends on what kind of product you are willing to purchase. The NAD M10 integrated amp has Dirac built in and is MQA compatible. Same with the NAD C658 preamp/DAC. Lyngdorf's TDAI-3400 was supposedly going to be patched to include MQA capability ... 
EQ Thats affordable
Are you saying you have a Lyngdorf 2170? Why don't you use the built in EQ? 
How many of you believe in MQA?
My experience with MQA was through a PS Audio DirectStream Jr and was entirely positive. Some tracks I am very familiar with over decades sounded better than I had ever heard them, and I noticed the improvement without knowing they were MQA tracks... 
Lyngdorf TDAI-3400
@biggund I can't answer all of your questions, but I use my TDAI-3400 with Roon and it works flawlessly. You can control it from the Roon app, turning it on or off. If it's off and you press play on a song, it automatically switches on and the son...
