Imported audio are you getting the same level of performance vs domestic priced equip?
For me, it simply boils down to brand pedigree, performance, features and uniqueness of the product. When you look at all that, they far outweighs the import duties and freight charges. I love my Canterbury’s and there isn’t anything out there I c... 
Will adding an external DAC to my setup improve SQ significantly?
Check out Denafrips Ares II, great sounding DAC and incredible value. It will be a perfect companion for Node 2i.Spotify offers low resolution streaming hence your CD’s sounds better. Stick with Tidal or Qobuz streaming for better listening experi... 
I wonder why......
Stock power cords are great for initial burn-in. Another use for them would be to include it in the resale for cable naysayers 😉I won’t go into the merits of aftermarket PC’s....if you hear the difference, great. If you don’t, enjoy the stock cord.

Playing SACDs
Ivan,No need to give up on SACD’s. Keep your Oppo and add a D.BOX between your Oppo and Hugo and you’re in business. I heard the demo at AXPONA earlier this year and came away pretty impressed. 
Where can one find the most titles of DSD downloads for purchase?

Help with up to $1500 streamer
@badgod86,How about Bluesound Node 2i and a iPad. You get very good streamer and built in DAC with iOS app that displays album art work on your iPad that no built in display can compete with.  The RCA single ended output from Node 2i to your Onkyo...

schubert, Bluesound Vault 2i offers excellent value for what all it does. Ripping 1500 cd’s will take some time and above all your patience. Here is an alternative,
