@erik_squires,Right on the money man. That is the way to go. Treat your room and be amazed. Then upgrade only if needed.Would love to see your room. You should certainly post your system here. 
Experience with Inakustik 3500P Power Conditioner??
@ozzy ,As rareace has mentioned above, you can ask Bob about the same deal :-) 
PSVANE 12Au7 12At7 12Ax7 "-T MKII" 2020 production run of small signal/driver tubes
@decooney ,I recently purchased a pair of the Psvane 12AU7 from Viva tubes. They easily bested the Genalex Gold Lions and the Mullards that came with my preamp. For the first 10-20 hours they sounded hooty. But after a few days, these started to o... 
Experience with Inakustik 3500P Power Conditioner??
@rareace,That is something that Bob did not offer me. So good for you. I have no plans to change my existing [email protected] ,You have so many components in your system. If you were to get a power conditioner, what components would go in it? Why... 
Experience with Inakustik 3500P Power Conditioner??
@rareace,Why "unfortunate"? You made a decision - be happy and enjoy it. If you think your ears are not good enough to differentiate cables, that is fine. Life is not about what cables or components you purchase after reading reviews. Just invest... 
Storing DSD/PCM files and playing through a DAC
Agreed @johnss . My DSD files are currently on one HDD and a laptop. The new HDD/SSD would be exclusively for music. 
Experience with Inakustik 3500P Power Conditioner??
@rareace,I agree with @dvdboulet on the power conditioner. While I do not have much experience with power conditioners (Brickwall was the only other one before this), I can say with confidence that this product literally transformed my listening e... 
Rockna Wavelight thoughts?
@teajay , will wait to read your review. Will be an interesting read. Which other DAC will you be comparing with this Rockna? 
Dedicated 20 amp circuit - Electrician laughed!
The best mechanics in the world are not necessarily the best drivers for Formula 1 or alike. Just saying. 
Add an external DAC. Make my Oppo UDP-205 a true top player
While the Oppo might not outperform a really nice DAC or a dedicated SACD/CD player, one thing you might want to do is keep the player "on" for at least an hour before listening. Another thing is to use a good power conditioner. In my system it ma... 
Anyone try the Psvane Acme Supreme 300 B tubes ?
I don't have the 300B tubes. But I recently got the Psvane 12AU7s. The initial 10-15 hours they sounded "alright". But once they "broke in", they are better than the Genalex Gold Loins I have. They are super transparent and open without sounding t...

Thank You for the info @rego and @er 
Help Ripping an HDCD Encoded CD...
I was wondering, if I can get the FLAC file "HDCD decoded" when ripping the CD to FLAC in Foobar2000. Meaning - the DAC does not have the capability to decode the HDCD flag. So the FLAC should already have the HDCD encoding. Does Foobar's plugin d... 
Storing DSD/PCM files and playing through a DAC
@rego,I can have a NAS connected to my Router and I do have a hardwired connection in my audio room, if I need to connect the network cable to the Oppo or an external DAC.I have downloaded the Bubble UPnP on my android tablet. I will explore more ... 
Storing DSD/PCM files and playing through a DAC
@erik_squires,That was my thought about SSD and NVMe. Silent, but slightly pricey, which in the long run is fine.How do you like the Roon's sound quality? Based on your suggestion I did look at Roon and found that this might be something I would b...
