PS Audio Perfectwave transport still good?
I don’t have the benefit of the 30 day trial as I am in Canada. 
PS Audio Perfectwave transport still good?
I have a lot of discs but I also have an Auralic Aries G2.1 streamer which keeps me busy. The PWT has a better tone by a little but the Aries may have better width in the sound stage. My amplifier is still new so play time will improve overall sou... 
X250.5 vs X250.8
I just received my X250.8 and it sounded good cold and new out of the box. I believe that the Pass Labs combo I now have with the XP-32 preamp and  will be the last amp and preamp I will ever own. I now have my retirement system with my Hales T5’s... 
To Roon or not to Roon?
I had to uninstall Roon from my computer in order to get proper performance from the Auralic Lightning app. Now it works fine with Roon completely uninstalled and deleted. 
Hales Transcendence 5 speakers endgame?
I don’t know what SOTA stands for but in any case I would imagine that audio speaker technology would not have changed that much in the past 20 years. I could be wrong but the tweeters and midrange drivers in my Hales are still current and availab... 
To Roon or not to Roon?
I tried to use Roon again and followed the instructions as told to me by a Roon rep by email and not only did it not work for me it screwed up my Auralic app which required to be deleted and reinstalled. I really would like to try Roon but it does... 
Keces BP5000 Balanced Power Transformer?
I’ve put in an order for the new replacement for the Keces BP5000. There is supposed to be a new and improved unit coming out in April and I’m in for one. I’m very excited. In the very worst case scenario I will just put back my Hydra 2 and Hydra ... 
To Roon or not to Roon?
Tom. I love the Auralic Aries G2.1. It replaced the PS Audio Bridge II which was connected to my Directstream dac. The Auralic Aries streamer is far superior to the Bridge II. 
To Roon or not to Roon?
I use my Aries wireless. Yes I use Wifi. I’m hesitant about Roon because of the way it knocked my Auralic and app out of whack. 
Keces BP5000 Balanced Power Transformer?
I have option for a deal on the Keces. Is it a good conditioner? 
Keces BP5000 Balanced Power Transformer?
The reason I am considering the Keces BP5000 is that despite my Hydras which help I notice fluctuations in ac quality which have my system sounding better or worse depending on ac quality variations. 
Hales Transcendence 5 speakers endgame?
The internal cables were  upgraded to Cardas Litz when I redid the crossovers and replaced the tweeters with Seas Millennium tweeters. As I listen to them now I prefer them to my Focal Utopia and Audeze LCD4 headphones with Moon 430ha headphone am... 
Keces BP5000 Balanced Power Transformer?
My speakers are Hales Transcendance 5’s. 
Hales Transcendence 5 speakers endgame?
I suppose one man’s endgame is another man’s entry level. 
X250.5 vs X250.8
I’ve been listening to my new XP-32 for hours now and it keeps sounding better as it is warming up. At 3 in the morning I am listening to my headphones which I did not expect to sound this much better but they do. The X1 is a good preamp but the X...
