My Speaker Journey and Focal Sopra 2
nishN992,Thank you.Well my room is about 17 x 25. I have my speakers out about 8 feet from the front wall. Your dimensions may be a little difficult not because of the Sopra's but because of the rooms squareness. You may have to use some bass trap... 
What has been your costliest mistake in this hobby?
I purchased Bob Carver M350 Black Raven amps and I thought they were great! I still do!But, I thought that if the amps were so great then with his speakers together they must be a great combo. Wrong big time! The speakers required so much power th... 
Curious USB cable VS. Wireworld Platinum Starlight 7 USB cable
ryder,Expect to pay anywhere between $500- $1000 if used. And they are hard to find used.ozzy 
PS Direct Stream Vs. Lumin X 1 Sound quality difference?
kren0006, I can’t believe how much fuller and immersive the soundstage is. The surround sounds better than my home theater equipment! Solo’s leap out at you. Again, I say it sounds through the speakers like listening with headphones. It took a whi... 
PS Direct Stream Vs. Lumin X 1 Sound quality difference?
rossb,Well I switched back to the native rez and I agree with you.But man, I am getting some wide open soundstage! I was just playing Get Yer Ya Ya’s  Out- "Sympathy For Devil" and the guitar solo’s are way off to the extremes. And, I have played ...

PS Direct Stream Vs. Lumin X 1 Sound quality difference?
I reread an online review of the Lumin X1 I think it was the Absolute Sound and in that review they suggested running the X1 output in DSD 512.I just tried it and so far it does sound very good. Better stage presence.ozzy 
Curious USB cable VS. Wireworld Platinum Starlight 7 USB cable
I owned both. I preferred the Wireworld Platinum 7 by far.Better in all things important to music. ozzy 
Upgrade Carver to Tube Carver question.
I am running the Carver M350 amps with my Focal Sopra 2's. Much better than the Pass Labs or Atmasphere amps prior. Very nice combination.ozzy 
Computer Guru's, Does my external Hard Drive go to sleep if its still blinking?
onhwy61, It’s not the light, its whether or not it shortens the hard drive lifespan. The hard drive costs close to $200. And, though I have other back ups, if one of them needs to be put into action, I would need to buy another HD and copy the fil... 
Average age of audiophiles
I started out going to junk yards with my parents picking up old raw speakers. I had them placed all around the basement, installed switches to turn various ones on/off. Didn’t know much about impedance back then. Later at age 17 I worked as a sal... 
ADD-Powr by Coherence Systems --- Power Conditioning Products
Well for a time I had 2 Sorcer X4's and it was too much of a good thing.I now wonder about the Wizard, you say it does something different than the Sorcer?I must say the Sorcer X4 is pretty impressive in my audio room.ozzy 
Whats playing on your system today?

Thoughts on PS Audio Perfectwave DAC ?
I also owned one for a few years. It was a pretty good sounding unit. I had trouble with it playing HR files from a Bryston BDP-2 though.Paul and Ted kept promising a fix (for over 2 years!).I ended up trading in both units towards a Lumin X1.ozzy
