raysmtb1  Are you using Townshend products under your Moabs?

 I see evidence for both coupling and decoupling speakers / floors and more importantly, have heard lots of opinions on which type works better in a given circumstance (system to system). I feel it is best to try and see what works. I have not ye...

Phill55, let us know how it goes when the Node2i arrives.Enjoy! 
How to connect Tidal to DAC wireless via iPad
Perhaps that could work. I have not seen a router that outputs via USB. Your router may have a USB port for another purpose. But a network cable out to the Node will work for sure.In my experience the Node2i should be a nice improvement over your ...

Not all streamers output to USB. But most will out as optical Toslink. And if I am not mistaken, your DAC accepts Toslink as an input. A splitter or hub should be fine to the network cable to the streamer. 
Looking for new speakers
You my want to have your turntable dealer come back and check things out before you spend any real money. Could be an analog issue that they would be able to correct.

Need preamp recommendation

Hey MC, when you feel that they are pretty well burned in, please share some more descriptions from a few tracks. Sound stage, dynamics, coherency etc?

Really?

squeak_king_77 Really looking forward to YouTube videos (or at least photos...maybe a Photobucket link?) so Moab owners can learn how Chuck optimizes the speakers...in the interest of sharing fun and productive ideas. +1

Yes mapman, and perhaps your need to be right is clouding your perception? 
Tekton Design Moab
I believe it has been made clear, by the Moab owners that there is zero need to improve them.And that those who love to tweak will continue to do so. It’s not about what might be "lacking". It’s about creative potential as seen in the eyes of the ...
