|TIDAL-Who knows what you are hearing? Don't Ask, Don't Tell.|
On my Aurender N10, I can search on Tidal Masters that are MQA only. This is my preferred way of finding and listening to music on Tidal.
|Recommended loudspeaker cable for my Sonus Faber Guarneri Homage?|
I really like Acoustic Zen Absolute speaker cables (a silver copper blend) connected to my Sonus Faber Strads. They should be in your price range. I only needed 6' since my amps are next to my speakers.
|Any good right angle power cables?|
I purchased a Voodoo 90 degree adaptor and just connected it to a straight power cord. It worked great.
|7M or 25 ft HDMI cable for 4K UHD|
I also run 25' Blue Jeans HDMI cable from my Oppo 205 a 4K projector and have never had any problems. I only run video on the HDMI also.
|Question about McIntosh & BW 800 Series for sale|
I wouldn't try to sell your system as a whole since not that many will want exactly what you have. Sell your system piece by piece, you will get more $ and it will be much easier to sell.
|balanced vs. unbalanced sound quality|
I find the quality of interconnect wire to make more of a difference than the connection on the end. Just because a low quality cable has a XLR connectors doesn't make it sound better than a high quality cable with RCA connectors, especially for s...
|Aurender N10 - Sound quality performance is erratic|
While I like using Tidal in HiFi - 44.1 quality for auditioning music on my Aurender N10, adding MQA to the N10 for less than $50 brought my sound quality up to where I really enjoy the sound. I have a MQA DAC and non MQA DAC. Tidal MQA streamed v...
|MC300 MC252 MC501 recommendations based on my setup|
I don't listen to music all that loud but have used a variety of McIntosh amps. I did have one MC352 paired with B&W 803D's and it sounded very good. I then got a second MC352 to run the B&W's bi-amped which was even better. Then I went fo...
|New Aurender N10|
I rip my CD’s to my NAS as AIFF and then use the copy feature on my N10 to also have them on the N10’s hard drive. I especially like that the N10 will do Tidal and unfold Tidal MQA's to my MQA DAC.
|C22 fully balanced?|
I don't believe the C22 is fully balanced. The C1100 is. I do like the retro style of the C22. It looks good with MC75 or MC275 amps.
|Speaker Recommendation: 20K range|
Everyone has different favorites for speakers. I had Acoustic Zen Crescendos paired with McIntosh 601 mono's and C2300 preamp and liked that combo quite a bit. I also second the suggestion for Harbeth 40.2 speakers.
|Down side of speaker swop from AZ to Tonian Labs ?|
When I had AZ Crescendos, I preferred McIntosh MC601 SS monos over McIntosh MC275 tube monos but it was close. I loved the Crescendos but I did get the fever to switch things around. I have never heard the Tonian Lab speakers so I can't compare.
|OPPO 205 VS 105 QUESTIONS|
milpai, my HT system is down in the mancave and my 2 channel system is on the 1st floor so they are not physically close. My 2 channel system is a lot more expensive than my HT system so it is not a fair comparison to compare an Oppo which is an e...
|OPPO 205 VS 105 QUESTIONS|
I recently received a 205. I noticed an immediate improvement in sound quality over my 105D when I hooked it up for a BluRay concert in 5.1. It also sounds better than the 105D through the balanced stereo outputs though I only listened in 2 channe...
|All Quiet on the Oppo front?|
stereo5, I am sure you will be glad you purchased one of the last 205's. I wasn't going to purchase one either since it can't stream Netflix or YouTube. I figured if I didn't like it I could sell it for at least as much as I paid for it. I am very...
