First mistake right there , reading ASR.   The ONLY thing they care about are measurements.   Me?  I care about sound.    I had Quicksilver Mid Monos with my Forte IV and they sound great.   In fact i had a preamp that cost about 4 x as much driv... 
Aric Audio Custom 300b PSET
In an amp like the PSET 300b it is worth the money. , I think    We're not talking a $3000 amp here.    Yeah it stings,  but they are reported to last a long time .     
Aric Audio Custom 300b PSET
Unfortunately I have no first hand comparison of 300b but I think the Western Electric 300b was worth the money.  They sound phenomenal in my amp.   I bought a spare pair because I wanted to be sure I had a new pair on hand down the road      
Aric Audio Custom 300b PSET
You absolutely made the right choice.   There is a difference between a no compromise custom build and a boiler plate mass produced design.   If i am paying $$$ for a custom amp I want the principle owner / designer to build it.    That amp will ... 
Why are there so many wooden box speakers out there?
"They're instruments. They're allowed to be wooden. They are required to resonate" My point exactly  
Looking to buy new to me pre amp 2.5 k max
Yes, go tube.   I would look at the Atma Sphere UV 1 at your budget.     No frills, probably one of the best at it's price.  
Why are there so many wooden box speakers out there?
Why are guitars wood?   Why are pianos wood?  Why are drums wood?....  
KT 150 failure
Fortunately it wasn't something catastrophic.   I would definitely pull that tube before something bad happens.  I have had fairly good luck with other GL tube types but I did have a KT 66 red plate and a KT77 lose vacuum.    I recently have been... 
Do Streamer only devices really impact sound quality?
Aside from the great sound quality, I really like the slick display and the fact it has transport keys.     The component form factor is appealing to me also , as is the insanely good build quality.    I am ok with having to spend for all those t...

Sorry to hear you're getting less than great results.   I have had the Forte IV since they were launched.   I used them with a pair of Quicksilver Mid Mono amps and they sounded great.  40 w Push-pull,  plenty of power.    In my medium room I bare... 
Types of Audiophiles
Unlike a Bean Counter,   I put emphasis on VALUE not price.     
Types of Audiophiles
Call me a Dynamics Fanatic I guess....   not really a purist, I like it to sound "live" for lack of a better word.    Purist in my love for simple gear without a lot of features,  stripped down .   No tone controls , all tube .   Horns of course   
Aurender Star Feature (removing stars)
Good to know.    Thx  
Aurender to Roon Core?
I just bought an Aurender N200.   It is an awesome machine.   Lack of Roon never even factored into my decision.   Sound quality is sublime, I don't think I want a 3rd party software app messing with that....    plus I have enough subscriptions,  ...
