Looking for a streamer/DAC
Get the ifi zenstreamer and then the dac of your choice.  Easily upgradeable, and not a lot of money to put your toes in the water.

Looking for a speaker for my LM 845 Premium

Battery power supply
Yes. Thank you. I have the ps p500 and the PS Audio power plant premiere. I like them. Unfortunately the p500 only has the pass through outlet working and the premiere has only one outlet working. It would be a pretty penny to fix both. I was was ... 
Battery power supply
To further, an internet search seems to stipulate that this is a lithium battery and a true sine wave output. But it seems that information is limited. And the advertisement that I linked may be wrong.  
Buying from overseas.
 About a year ago, I bought expensive, used speakers through the eBay international site. The payment was with PayPal. I had communication with the seller  prior to the sale. This was in the way of a cell phone call. The speakers ended up getting ... 
Any other tweaks for Wilson Audio Duettes?
The stands are the bespoke stands for the Duettes. They are fairly sturdy affairs. I have had good success putting anti-vibration products underneath the crossover and also underneath the stands. This is really a question to me of wringing the las...
