|Nicks or McVie.....|
+1 Christine Perfect
|Considering a POSSIBLE replacement for speakers. Opinions?|
+1 for Salk. He's in Pontiac Michigan.
|Worst Concerts You Have Attended ??|
U2 was awful, they avoided much of their material by playing cover tunes. Also saw a band member of Talk Talk fall off of huge speaker and knock himself out cold. Another band mate just walked over and unplugged his guitar that was in feedback.
|Best upgrade for cd player?|
+1 on the Audiolab 6000cdt and a good DAC. Mine is paired with the Schiit Gungnir MB. The results have been very good.
|What's your favorite boutique speaker maker|

|Laid back DAC under $800?|
+1 on the Schiit product line.

|Wow an old album that rocked your world |
+2 on the Pretenders debut album. I would add Bill Bruford's "Feels Good To Me". Guest singer Annette Peacock's voice was such an interesting departure from his other musical directions.
|Non Analytical Sounding DAC Upgrade- Budget $1,500 or less|
I purchased the Schiit Gungnir MB about six months ago. I've been very impressed so far.
|Time for the Dynaco to go, Affordable Integrated or Separates for Wilson's Under $2.5K?|
I too, was surprised at the sound quality of the Yamaha A-S series int. line.
|10 Audio Cable Myths and Facts|
I know how I would feel if I spent several thousands on cables just to have someone say: "hey! You wasted your money and fell for snake oil sales tactics" But as a long time fan of Audioholics, I agree with the OP.
|Thoughts on choosing an amplifier|
+1 on the A21+, I have the A21. It pairs well with several different speakers.
