Bricasti M1 DAC vs PS Audio Direct Stream DAC
Ozzy, how are you connecting your 2 Amber Regens (just one to the other?). And can you give a link to the LPS you are using (if it isn't the stock power supply). Thanks.

Any one compare Dynaudio C1 & Gallo Strada2?
Jdoris. Thanks.I will look into the Selah and Fritzpeakers, but tend to go to better known names, while perhaps not as good, have better re-sale. I've been burned on trying to re-sell obscure gear.The cost of the Strada2's is street about $1,300. ...

Mac Mini vs. Macbook Pro as a server
