Yamaha A-S801 for Dynaudio Evoke 20
Thank you! Love the info about Ohno cables. I was thinking about Nordost flat cables, which are hifi and all but expensive. Question about  subwoofer — why 80hz? Is there some science behind why it’s set that high? I’d expect the woofer to take ov...

Thank you Fred. Very informative!  
Whats playing on your system today?

Speaker shootout update; aggressive treble eliminating some (fairly?)
This is pretty much the reason I had to remove Klipsch, Tannoy and KEF from my short list some time ago. Too much sparkle. I’m sure with loads of EQ etc one could tame any speaker. But I love the sound of Dynaudio and Monitor Audio (Gold onwards) ... 
Best route to go for new dac?
My experience with Topping D90 was the same as another person here. It’s very nice “for the price”. I’m in love with Schitt Modius. For 200 bucks it’s a complete steal, livens up the music. My source is a simple Mac Mini. Love it and can’t recomme...
