Which cable
I think you should buy a pair of $9,000 Nordost cable.  Think everyone would confirm. 
Why a separate DAC?
I am streaming TIDAL hard wired CAD6 from my modem in my family room to my Apple TV in the living room and have the Apple TV hardwired to my ARCAM AVR550.  I just found out I have not been even hearing 16 bit quality sound.  ARCAM makes a streamer... 
What Sonically is the Difference between a $1,500 CD Player and a $10K-$25K One?
I currently have Paradigm Prestige 85F towers.  They came with metal jumper plates.  Will I hear a significant difference if I replace them with speaker links?  I have Tara Labs Apollo speaker wire and wonder how important it would be to spend $26... 
What Sonically is the Difference between a $1,500 CD Player and a $10K-$25K One?
Kind of like the "Emperors New Cloths".  If you spend $10,000 you will talk yourself into hearing the difference.  Buy a new car or pay down your mortgage instead.  It is like anything else with audio.  It minimal returns for money spent in my opi... 
Any other lone audiophiles here?
A lot of them will one up you and make you feel bad.  Best not to keep up with them. 
Sound quality vs. volume
If you do not have subwoofers, they could lighten the load on your mains to be able to play at lower volumes to decrease distortion. 
Anyone know how to set up Rythmik subwoofers on an ARCAM AVE550 receiver?
I have a pair of Paradigm Prestige 85F towers that play down to 40 Hz.  Paradigm includes another spec number 28 DIM.  I think that number is possibly room gain or what they can play down to based on any given room.  Maybe buying just one ported s... 
Anyone know how to set up Rythmik subwoofers on an ARCAM AVE550 receiver?
Ataraxia,I am glad to hear from someone who owns a pair of Rythmik F12 SE's.  It sounds like they might not be as difficult to set up as I have been told.  How did you decide to buy the Rythmik's?  I personally think their Direct Servo technology ... 
Anyone know how to set up Rythmik subwoofers on an ARCAM AVE550 receiver?
bcp24,What subwoofers do you own.  Just curious.  I think some of the problem lies with knowing how many audiophiles consider REL to be the best.  What I am afraid of is buying the Rythmik's and finding out they are too boomy.  One of the biggest ... 
Anyone know how to set up Rythmik subwoofers on an ARCAM AVE550 receiver?
Sorry bdpd,  I didn't mean to upset you.I talked to a really good speaker manufacturer and he told me to set things up with an SPL meter.  This is pretty complicated for someone who does not have a degree in electrical engineering or for someone w... 
Anyone know how to set up Rythmik subwoofers on an ARCAM AVE550 receiver?
I talked to an ARCAM dealer and he said there is a setting on the ARCAM.  If I select stereo direct, it will not play the subs.  If I just select stereo it will.Jim Salk and Brian Ding told me the way to hook things up is by using the LFE connecti... 
Anyone know how to set up Rythmik subwoofers on an ARCAM AVE550 receiver?
I have talked to both Brian Ding and Enrico.  They both told me to use the LFE hook up with my ARCAM and let the ARCAM DIRAC room correction handle it.  They also told me to set my ARCAM speakers as small.  Seems to me if I set them as small it mi... 
What is the least compressed signal?
This is why vinyl does not make sense to me.  Too many variables.  How much detail can you really get from a stylus making contact with a groove.   Bet you CD’s contain so much more information.  Information equals detail.  Now factor in the noise... 
Whats on your turntable tonight?
Michael Wollny’s Little Person.  Listen for the string bass to drop through the floor. 
What system can adequately reproduce the sounds of a tanker being hit by torpedo ?
Could someone please buy me a pair of Gryphon speakers?
