Primare DAC 30
Jond:Thanks for the reply!The 2V is from my CD player directly, also from the RCA/single end of my OPPO 105. So, if I leave my volume setting unchanged in my preamp, DAC30 is as loud as my CD player or RCA output from OPPO 105, but far less loud t... 
Furman Reference IT 15i power conditioner
I have the Furman IT Reference 15i and Elite 15i. 1) Reference is much cleaner than Elite. It's worth the extra costs. 2) The symmetrically balanced outlets are much cleaner than the linearly filtered outlets. Sonically, the two types of outlets a... 
Fake Audioquest sky cables
We cannot get our money back if Audioquest does not return the fake cables to us, and the fake cable sellers make money out of us and Audioquest, so we and Audioquest are the ones that get hurt. If Audioquest return the fake cables to us stating i... 
What speakers do you recommend? I'm considering B&W 804 D3 or Sonus Faber Olympica II
Thanks, Joey and Luvwine, for sharing your experiences!Luvewine, which model of B&W did you listen to? I know some feel B&W's are bright, and they perhaps are on some systems. A friend of mine has the 804 D3's with McIntosh amp, preamp, Op... 
What speakers do you recommend? I'm considering B&W 804 D3 or Sonus Faber Olympica II
In case this is interesting or helpful to anyone, I bought a pair of B&W 803 D2’s (Diamond) from the local Magnolia. I didn’t get the 804 D3’s because I needed more bass than they could give even though they are sonically superior to the D2’s.... 
Equipment that has made you 'stop' looking?
GregKraus:Did you buy the BD32 or Oppo-105? How do you like them? I am trying to make the same decision now. Any info/advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks! 
Ayre vs Primare
(I know this is an old threat but ...)Ayre costs more and is class A (Primare is class A/B) and therefore should sound better. Looks is a matter of opinion. I personally like Primare’s elegant look much better.

Hi, Jafant:Thank you very much for your suggestion!Funny that Vienna Acoustics was coming into my mind on its own lately for no reason at all. Now you suggest it, I got to look into them and let you know what I find after I got a chance to auditio...

Hi, Melbguy1:Thank you very much for your detailed recommendations!I will definitely check out Wilson Benesh, Revel Ultima Salon 2’s, and Magico S3’s speakers and perhaps other components later when I am ready to upgrade them.I am noticing all the...

Oh, I am also interested to know how much difference there is between B&W 804 D3 and the earlier versions of 804's, especially D1 and D2. 
Using McCormack DNA-0.5 Deluxe as Mono Amps
I just did a horizontal bi-amping and was amazed as how good it sounds. My bi-amp-able speakers have high crossover at 3.5KHz. So I wasn't expecting much improvement on the bass/mid side but it improved dramatically, which I don't quite understand...
