Does anyone have an opinion about the new P S Audio Bridge 2 ?
Hey aigenga and thanks for your response.I should have qualified my findings by mentioning that I'm comparing the PSA DS DAC and Perfect Wave Player to a PC based Server and DAC made by MOJO AUDIO. It's called the CAT and Mystique 2.0 DAC. The CAT... 
Does anyone have an opinion about the new P S Audio Bridge 2 ?
I have a virtually new Bridge II I don't need because I bought a dedicated music server that I'll sell for $500 if anyone's interested. I have the box and paper work. I bought it new from a certified dealer. It's barely used and works perfectly. I... 
oppo 105d mod or look for a new cd player ?
whatever you do do not use EVS, (the biggest runaround of all time)total crock of bull too. the guy is as broke as can be and will add virtually nothing to the piece and then run you around like a broken horse until your broke and dead. take my ad...

What is the best USED Speaker Under $10,000
Revel Salon and Revel Salon2's seem like a pretty good speaker for the under 10K used speaker. 
Best DAC ?
Berkeley Alpha DAC 2 w/ USB smokes nearly anything made, holds it own against 100,000 dollars analog set up. A very good pre amp is needed however for this to happen. 
balanced/xlr vs. unbalanced/ single ended
hey there Johnsonwu, interesting answer and I'd agree with you too, but I'd also add that I have two systems hooked up presently one being single ended and one being balanced and somehow the balanced system sounds a fair bit better. Again it's not... 
Decware - any substance here?
Gopher, did you buy a Tori Mk 3 with VCAPs, just wondering. I recently sent my Tori back because something was wrong with it after a ton of run around but it turned out some solder joints had actually broke how is anyones guess. The other reason I... 
When is digital going to get the soul of music?
When I had my Oppo modified only after 3 trips maybe 4 trips back to EVS was the upgrade done closer to my spec's but each time I had to cover the shipping and non of the error were my mine. I felt this was unfair to say the least. The player is s... 
Any reason not choose an Apogee Duet?
Has anyone compared the apogee duet 2 with audiophile dac's for fun. Also has anyone converted analog signal from turn table and phono stage preamp to digital file and then played it back thru Duet 2 and possibly another DAC of higher quality like... 
When is digital going to get the soul of music?
EVS/ Ric Schultz does a blu- ray modification to the OPPO 95 that's downright addictive and frankly unbelievable until heard. So musical and sweet, extended yet articulate. The digital sound has come a long way, a really long way. I have a beautif... 
OPPO BDP-93 RAM Modification Thoughts.
not sure, I think the 95 modded by EVS for about the same money right now is a unbelievable. no comparison to a modded 93 but at the same time a new 95 is 1K plus 1K is 2K but it smokes my Ayre CD 5xe mp hands down in every way. I have since sold ... 
REL G1 vs JL Fathom F113 subwoofer
NO SUB is the best sound by far. I have had REl, Revel, paradigm, Hsu, VC etc. and now they are all gone. Blending subwoofers is a never ending night mere for most especially me. My best success came from a professionally tuned Revel B-15, the a R... 
Subwoofer Differences and Choice
none, the new rel subs are more musical but might be more money 
Decware - any substance here?
I own the TORII MK III w/ VCAPS. I got the unit about 1.5 wks. ago after about a 2month wait. The amp is still breaking in, the VCAPS rather as I only have about 350 hours on the amp. The VCAPS take 1000 hours so a real review of this amp isn't po...
