Aurender vs. Roon
Anybody else do what @rbstehno has done?  I'm interested in doing the same, as I have a tricked out mac mini and a PS Audio Direct Stream DAC with a Bridge II for ethernet connection.  The Mac Mini is mid 2011 with a 2.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i5... 
Used 5ch Amp (Classe, Krell, Rotel)
I agree with soix. That is the configuration I use.

OMG - my recommendations are so far above emotiva, outlaw, etc.  Different class altogether.

 I have owned the Stratus, and while I think it’s an excellent amplifier, I would not call it fast. I think the BEL and the Aragon would be better in that regard.

Does anyone have a Schiit Yggy DAC?
Go to Home Depot (or Amazon) and get an IR thermometer.  Or use a “killawatt” to measure idle power consumption.

So it sounds like you thought the crossover was deleterious. Is that correct? It allows seamless integration with subs, but at a price. Correct?

I’m curious.  When you take the crossover out of the system, do you notice any change in transparency when you take out the crossover for the sub?  I have yet to use a crossover that didnt affect transparency.

Maybe hipnosis would be a cheaper way to enjoy the music then gear!

VAC will do phono, sub, by bypass. I love mine.  
Long-Term Amp Storage Without Use: Bad Idea???
 I know what you mean Eric… But they are kind of rare and all tricked out!  
Review ATC SCM 40 A floorstanders.....finally
What are considered the best ATC floorstanders, both overall and bang for the buck?   I am very much enjoying my passive SCM-11 v2.
