Any love for newer Krell amps?
I’m looking to replace my 23 year old Krell KVA 300i integrated amp. So I am looking at the Krell Duo 175 xd, i’m wondering if it’s too much power for my Theil CS 2.25 speakers. Anyone out there have any experience and or advice? (There is always ... 
Bluesound Vault 2i and a Qutest DAC
Update to the update: after 2+ months of loading all my CDs into the vault (over 1,000), I finally finished. According to the vaults statistics, I have only used up 12% of the hard drive, which sounds a bit too incredible to me. It displayed a tot...

Tom & Driiddle.  While I appreciate the recommendation about MP3 tag, the website says they do not have a Mac version yet; only a Windows version. The Mac version is in Beta and I use a Mac. I’ll check out Perfecttunes. Thanks to you both. Enj...

Bluesound Vault Restore from Backup
Good news on BluOS proprietary backup. After burning approximately 200 CDs, the unit belched out what looked like a gasket or a belt with the last CD that I burned. Not getting any response from bluesound’s tech-support, I called the dealer, who g... 
Bluesound Vault 2i and a Qutest DAC
An update to my November 10 posting: Some very interesting findings! > Comparing the sound of the vault alone against the vault thru the Qutest DAC and both against the Theta Miles cd player. I used eight different people in my test. I used 2 ... 
Bluesound Vault Restore from Backup
here’s what I’ve learned about their Backup: since they’re backup software is proprietary and you cannot see what’s on it you have to trust that when your vault crashes their restore feature will work. If you are overly cautious, like me, get ano...

Bluesound Vault 2i and a Qutest DAC
Well, contrary to most of the posts here, my experience has been quite different. I set up both this past weekend and I cannot discern any difference in sound quality between the Vault by itself or when connected to the Qutest DAC. If anyone out t... 
Bluesound Vault Combined with Node 2
Steve, thanks for the info. I may be agreeing with you. I finally got the optical cable that connects the vault to the DAC last night. I did a quick test against my Theta Miles CD player (which I’m hoping to replace with the vault) and the CD play... 
Bluesound Vault Combined with Node 2
This weekend, I installed the Vault and loaded a bunch of my CDs. I can tell already this will totally transform my listening experience for the better. Since I’ve gotten old (and lazy) I’ve been mostly listing to streaming Internet music rather t...

Bluesound Vault Combined with Node 2
I really do appreciate your insights and comments, however, you gentlemen are getting a bit too complicated for my old retired brain. For me, the Vault is a one and done solution to house all my music and streaming audio while I lie on my couch wi... 
Bluesound Vault Combined with Node 2
Spatial...  I appreciate sharing your experiences. I do notice that neither the node or the vault like wifi very much, or bluetooth for that matter. And i hear you re the need for a wired connection to both. The good news is that I can test it. I ...
