Supratek..Cabernet 6SN7 or Cabernet DHT
Can this preamp be used with a Gryphon amplifier? 
Higher End DACs
No one is recording that high native DSD, maybe 2X if your lucky. It also does not have Ethernet. 
BRICASTI M3 DAC
Not all tube dacs are magical. The Nagra HDX is also a tube dac. I heard the Lampizators too and both don’t impress. 
BRICASTI M3 DAC
Mike I own the Bricasti M21DAC and just auditioned the Nagra Tube Dac. I think I like the Nagra better as it sounds more natural. I tried the new Nagra HD Dac X and like the Bricasti better. The HD dac was boring sounding and less resolving. 
How good is MSB Discrete Dac?
thyname try the Bricasti M21 I think it will change your mind. 
Basis Audio Super Platter
Can the Basis Debut be upgraded to take this new platter?

Bricasti M1 DAC vs PS Audio Direct Stream DAC
Steve I'm using J River DLNA like you through AQVOX SE to EN-70e and then to dac. How would you use Linn, Kinsky, bubble UPnP instead of J River with my PC and DAC? Thx Jeff 
Roon Vs JRIVER MC 24 sound quality comparison on PC to DAC
Everything was set up with J River as far as my music files. Can they easily be converted to Roon or would I have to start over.

Oppo UDP-205 Availability
The Oppo Modright modded 105 beat the Play Back Designs MPD-5 dac which retailed for 15,000.00. It was not even close. So I still disagree with you that was a great player. 
Oppo UDP-205 Availability
I disagree. I use to own an Oppo 105 Modright modded player. It beat many higher priced dac's at that time.  
Audio Research VS110 Middle transformer gets very hot the 2 sides not so is this normal
I was told a long time ago that if the power transformer gets hot but the other transformers remain cool then it's a good tube amp design. 
Holo Audio Spring Dac, At last a Stereophile review and tests
I used it with the Singxer SU-1 and still didn't warm up to it.
