Service After the Sale
Perfectly.  I’ll be trashing something else long before then :-)  
Service After the Sale
You know in general I’ve always received pretty good service from both my dealers and the manufacturers I’ve chosen to use.  That’s what’s a little disconcerting this time because both of these guys and their dealers are reputable.  Maybe it’s a s... 
Dynaudio Contour 60 too much for 14x13x11 room?
Contour 60’s are much TOO big for that size room.  I too think the 20’s would be plenty, particularly with subs.  As testpilot says you need to look at your room, or having to turn up the volume that much on your amp, I’d look at the amp too.  Som... 
Service After the Sale
Funny thing here is I’m not contacting these people regarding problems or needing repairs, warranty or otherwise.  In one case I needed recommendations whether to use the tape out or pre out of my preamplifier.  I’ve since tried it both ways to fi... 
Service After the Sale
@ghdprentice  Aurender is definitely one of the good guys.  I've contacted them a couple of times and had quick responses and even an unsolicited follow up from them to be sure everything was ok.  The non-responsive vendors of whom I speak are hig... 
Cables for Aurender N150
I am a Cardas fan boy so you may want to take my recommendation with a grain of salt.  Their Clear line for cables in my opinion are some of the better cables available.  I use a Clear power cord and Clear High Speed USB on my N150. Use the Clear ... 
New Generation Class D - AGD Audion Mkiii upgrade
Some people just like to argue.  What are you going to do? I've encouraged my wife to join in on these discussions many times but she says she just prefers to argue with me 🙃  
Upgrade from BS Node 2i?
Since you don’t like the BluOS app the point maybe mute but why don’t you upgrade the power supply in your node?  The improvement is not subtle and a good LPS can be had for a few hundred bucks.  
New Aurender conductor V4 app
Haven't downloaded yet. Does  the update show song selections on Radio Paradise like BluOS?  
Review: Dynaudio Contour 20i
Very nice review.  Congrats on finding your perfect speakers.  They were on my short list.  Never did get to hear them, but did audition the 30 when I was looking for something for my old (larger) listening room.  Loved the sound of the 30 and a... 
New Generation Class D - AGD Audion Mkiii upgrade
Don’t know about appealing to tube lovers.  Based on comments I’ve read many seem to be offended.  Personally I’ve used tubes for over 50 yrs and I think the Audion’s look pretty cool.  
Totem Mani 2 At The Thrift
The CR 2040 doesn’t really have enough current for the Mani’. A nice 200W SS amp that doubles down into 4 ohms is what you need to look for.  
Warm sounding 6922 Type Tubes
Yes late vintage Siemens can be bright.  I bought some years ago for a preamp and almost immediately put them back in the box they came in.  I think I still have ‘em somewhere 🤔   
Denafrips FPGA Firmware Update
Found it!  He did not have the 12th version of the iris or T+.  So the upshot sounds like pre 12th versions the units were not compatible.  So Denafrips re-engineered and now they are.  Well that’s progress for you.  
Denafrips FPGA Firmware Update
@liangx5  Can't answer that.  Still trying to find what I read 🤔
