Anyone else still loving Hales Speakers?
My Hales T5’s speakers sound amazing. They are back from repair almost a year now. I love these speakers!  
Nice upgrade to Hales T5’s
For fun I’ve been looking online at the Joseph Audio Perspective 2 speakers but at 25 thousand dollars I will stay with my modded Hales. The Hales are classic vintage speakers at this point and with the mods I have done to them are worth keeping.  
PS Audio Perfectwave transport still good?
I got a Perfectwave SACD transport and it is working without flaw. I got a unit from a good batch. I am thrilled. The sound is very nice already and I only got it 2 days ago.  
Fuse Direction for Pass Labs Amp and Preamp
My situation is that I am doing 4 components at the same time. Technically I should do one at a time and swap the fuse to hear which works best but I was hoping to just install the 4 fuses at the same time. Someone sent me a diagram in a different... 
Fuse Direction for Pass Labs Amp and Preamp
Jason How you feel about fuses now people felt about power cables 25 years ago. People in fact do hear a significant difference between stock fuses and high end fuses. Why a little wire makes such a dramatic difference I don’t know but it does. It... 
PS Audio Perfectwave transport still good?
After some research I read about many people having issues with the new PST. My gut instinct is to stay with my older Perfectwave transport as it has been working flawlessly for almost 10 years and it sounds good especially with my Audioquest Drag... 
Anyone else still loving Hales Speakers?
I’ve upgraded everything in my system except for my Hales T5’s speakers which I had refurbished. I truly love these speakers!  
Anyone else still loving Hales Speakers?
I am surprised that there is not that much love for these classic speakers. I suppose the fact that they rarely show up for sale says something.  
PS Audio Directstream Dac so many for sale?
As it is there is only one DSD for sale these days. I took the advice of many and had my Directstream dac modded with the Edcor  XS4400 transformers and I was lucky enough to get one of the last Jkrichards power supply boards. I am powering the an... 
Anyone else still loving Hales Speakers?
I purchased the crossovers parts from a high end diy parts dealer online and I had a lot of input for purchasing the crossovers parts. I kept the values the same as the original crossovers but used much better parts. I had heard of a few people dr... 
Nice upgrade to Hales T5’s
I was offered $1500 for my Hales against a pair of Magico speakers. To be honest I feel my Hales are worth a lot more than what I can get for them. I love their sound and I would probably have to spend several thousand dollars to even match the so... 
BIG difference Tidal vs Amazon Music
Which was better? Amazon or Tidal?  
I am no longer getting MQA?
My Auralic Aries G2.1 streamer sounds good with my PS Audio Directstream dac but it no longer decodes MQA. The sound is good and I find the setting for MQA/FLAC on my Aries sounds the best. My Directstream dac will play the upsamles but it sounds ... 
Best connection between Auralic Aries G2.1 streamer and PS Audio Directstream dac?
The Wel Signature AES/EBU cable is a nice upgrade over the Wireworld. I am enjoying my new sound.   
Abyss ? Luxman 550aii ?
$3500 for a pair of Abyss 1266 Phi TC’s seems fishy to me as they typically sell for more than that. I would be careful. All that said they truly are beautiful sounding headphones.
