@grannyring, that's exactly the info I was looking for.  They have an uncanny sense of ease to themI then do not need the Duelund's influence going by what you said. I use Mills a lot as I find them a 'safe' resistor to use but as always, looki...

Hey mitch, I will look into that as soon as I get a little time to think. Right now we have 4 or 5 days dry weather ahead so wife and I are trying to finish off some house repairs before the cold wet stuff really sets in. I bought a leaky old Iris...

@MC, when you selected the Path resistors had you made any comparisons with the likes of Duelund or Mundorf?  I have tried some different ones and settled on Powertron by Vishay. Rated at 3W or 30W when mounted on a small heatsink. Clean, detailed...

@mitch2,  thanks for the thoughtful post. I attempted awhile ago to put something up but could not find how to do it. I have right now clicked on my profile but see no mention of 'Audiogon Virtual System'. Can you assist please?

I fail to understand why some insist on repeating the same old tiresome put-down. You don’t wanna try because you KNOW fuses can’t affect the sound so move on. You can perhaps spend the time listening to music unless your system just does not ente...

Tornado and Thunder Power Cables
I see the EE above suggesting room acoustics and correction software.This I totally agree with and encourage. A properly treated room will do more than any tweak or component swap, however room correction to me is a band-aid.This band-aid is of li... 
Tornado and Thunder Power Cables
Hey OP, another typical cable thread. My advice is to ignore most replies and try some different cables at various price points and hear for yourself, in your system. The cables do make a difference and should be considered along with other tweaks...

DAC That Punches Above Its Price Point
@ herman, I think you may have misread something somehow. In the audible frequencies for the example I provided, ESR is insignificant.I did provide the correct formula, or I’ve been wrong all these years 😳Specifically for capacitive reactance, Xc ... 
DAC That Punches Above Its Price Point
@westcoast, I am not sure, beyond your fixation on measurements, what you are trying to do here. Your placatory lecture by way of circumlocution is missing the point.Lets look at the capacitor.  We are talking audio here, not radio frequency. As a... 
DAC That Punches Above Its Price Point
@westcoast, let me clarify: measurements mean zero to me. If you are hung up on measurements then measure away but ask yourself if you are measuring the right things.Please explain how you measure something that we respond to at an emotional level... 
DAC That Punches Above Its Price Point
@herman, well said, I fully agree, measurements alone mean zero. ASR states that he does not need to listen because the measurements tell him what it will sound like! @romanesq   For those who want to go the R2R route, it certainly sounds like t... 
Help wanted spending money and improving my system.
Hey OP ??? Equaliser ??? Where and why are you needing one?You can replace your DAC which although good value can easily be bettered by a number of units, at 2 to 3 times the price. Also consider the streamer is as or more important than the DAC.Y... 
DAC That Punches Above Its Price Point
True value is out there but look at older units. Manley, Theta Gen. V or Wadia. I have a Wadia 15 that 'only' plays redbook and it is spectacular, not just for it's age but against anything available today. I also own a Bryston that somebody menti...
