Amp for B&W 805 D3
Do you already have a preamp or you're looking for an integrated amplifier? If an integrated, I've heard those speakers paired with Mark Levinson No. 5805 and they sounded very good. All you need is a streamer, a good coax cable to utilize the ML ...

Woofer pumping possibly due to tube amp when playing vinyl
"...it is not the turntable or cartridges...""...To be certain it was limited to vinyl playback..."A bit of discrepancy in your conclusion but the cause is typically the ultra low frequency rumble from the turntable/cartridge combination. Check th... 
Just installed a bluesound node 2i , quality not so good
superstoked, does this "tweak" still require a "hardwire" connection to the router using the fiber optic cable instead? I'm not following how it addresses the scenarios where the hardwire connection to the router is not possible due to location lo... 
How to select and pair a preamp and power amp?
I think most will probably recommend first choosing a power amp that best matches the speaker's characteristics and then pick a preamp that has the best synergy with the amplifier. The size of the room and the listening volumes also play into the ... 
Bluesound Node Issues After the Firmware Upgrade
One little trick for the rest to work is you have to hold your finger on the button before you plug it in the outlet, and keep holding it until it starts flashing red. It should then turn blue if connected to ethernet or turn solid green if on the... 
Bluesound Node Issues After the Firmware Upgrade
"I have a node 1 that froze up a couple of weeks ago..."rocray, if by "freezing up" you mean its stuck in a red LED mode, try reading through the link below, particularly the last few posts and see if that helps. It helped me with my Node N100.Goo...

Bluesound Node Issues After the Firmware Upgrade
I tried downloading the newest release 3.10.3 using the ethernet connection (vs. WiFi) and it revived my N100. There’s a lengthy discussion on the Bluesound Help Center forum about this subject and one of their support guys walked me through the p... 
Amp Pairing for Aerial Acoustics 6Ts.
I have heard the Aerial 6Ts extensively and they need good power/current to sound as they should/can. It probably doesn't matter as much if they're used for background low volume music listening but if you have (very) limited budget, you may want ... 
How important is the source used with a DAC to obtain optimal quality from Tidal ?
I have not used the Android Box but if it's similar to the Apple TV box, I heard a solid improvement all around when moving from the Apple TV to the Bluesound Node2. It might be system dependent so your results may be different. The user interface... 
Brand new Vandersteen Model 2's
I always thought those contour controls were superfluous in my model 2Ci, especially as they get older and tend to get scratchy. I now wished I had tried opening them up and taken the controls out of the circuit just to see it made a difference.  
Node 2i use with external DAC
I agree a good quality external DAC can improve the sound quality but whether or not you can hear the difference will ultimately depend on the quality of the rest of your system. Also keep in mind you may not be able to take advantage of the fully... 
Brand new Vandersteen Model 2's
From the Vandersteen site:"While the electrical path is improved the proven driver components used in the Model 2Ce Signature II remain in the Model 2Ce Signature III"Seems like the improvements are are all in the crossover circuit plus removing t... 
What your choice speakers with spikes or speakers with a vibration isolation device?
In my experience, the choice between coupling/spike and decoupling/isolation will depend on the type of floor the speakers are sitting on. If the floor is inherently isolated such as concrete slab, tile on concrete, etc., the spikes work well. Sim...
