New Look for Audiogon hard to work with
The new display sucks. Can we have a option to suppress the thumbnails and display old style listing. Also noticed that within a category you cannot do any refine search. The site has become slow. I would suggest every member to send an email to c...

Denafrips maybe have a second thought.
I had the Ares and it worked perfectly and then I upgraded to the Pontus. For the exchange I had to return it back to HK, but fortunately Alvin found a buyer in US. The Pontus is far more better than Ares in every respect.

Speakes for SET amp
Thanks for the great replies. I am really getting interested in the Coincident Super Eclipse speakers. My audiophile friend suggested the Audio Note AN-E/spe HE speakers either factory assembled or as kit. Any feedback on these AN spks. Thanks 
Anything like the Ayre CX-7e but with digital in?
The Resolution Audio Opus 21 and Cary 306 are one of the best I have owned and with digital inputs. With the Duet connected its wonderful.

audiophile music servers the latest products, info
The analog output from any of the music server/Sonos/SB3 is a waste of time. I have a fully modified Bolder Sb3 and it does not come close to an external high quality DAC. The key is a very good quality DAC and then you can get rid of your expensi...
