Nice! 
Looking for a phono stage with pleasing coloration
I recently upgraded from the Aria to the JC3+ and love it... 
Fern and Roby Montrose TT anyone?
There are some glowing reviews online.I think the issue is (might be?) that while these products look so cool you have to wonder if the sound quality is there? The industrial steampunk look is fun but the line is there for overdoing it?But then ag... 
1st Album you Ever Owned?
I was a kid in 1970s South Africa. Records were extremely expensive. The first disc I purchased was a used copy of the Slade album called Sladest: mind blown... 
Phono stage hum - Rega Aria

A move from Harbeth to... Wilson?
For a room that size there are a lot of options. This is of course a very personal thing. I find the Wilsons to be somewhat forward and clinical sounding. The other thing is that the industrial design can be a turnoff for some. I have a lot of woo...

I am following this thread with interest.I am auditioning a used Parasound JC 3+ on Sunday. Might be a solid upgrade from a Rega Aria? 
App/Player for Bricasti DACs?
Hi,  I am the OP here.Just to be clear: I don’t own a Bricasti. I was curious about what software options there were for controlling a Bricasti. The feedback I received was that most UPNP players should work. In the end I purchased a used Linn Aku...
