Discontinued?
Wturkey, the replacement for the DMP has been in a state of flux.  At one point not that long ago Paul McGowan said it would be released very soon.  This model was going to have improved Red-book performance but would not play SACD (too expensive ... 
Speaker Recommendations - from Vandersteen 5As
While I can’t offer any good suggestions (other than maybe the Verity’s) I am more interested in what you don’t like about the 5A’s versus the 5’s.  I have 5’s and really like them, and have certainly thought about upgrading, but every time I have... 
Why are there so many PS Audio BHK-mono or stereo amps for sale? What Gives?
These amps are NOT turkeys, they are, in my opinion, quite nice. Yes, I have a BHK 250, but I am certainly not alone in that. Are they the world’s best amp? Nope, actually nothing is, you said it yourself; “there are no absolutes in audio and ever... 
PS Audio Directstream Bridge II stability with Roon
I would strongly recommend you go over to the PS Audio forum which is on the PS Audio website, https://forum.psaudio.com. There is lots of discussion on the Bridge and Roon. I have the DirectStream DAC and Bridge II, but don’t use Roon so can’t of... 
Suggestion To The Moderators To Rid This Site Of Spam
It would certainly seem likely that many, if not all of these spam posts are by new “members” so they could be controlled.  The solution that other sites use is first time posters have to have their posts reviewed by the admin prior to actually po... 
Catastrophic Accident! What To Do!?
I would recommend that you send it in to at least get an estimate for repair.  If I understand your post correctly, if the repair costs too much for you, then they will purchase for parts.  That sounds like a win-win situation, under the circumsta... 
2 different Bedini 150/150 Mk II Amps
Rocray, based on your post above I would like to contact Will Vincent about a Bedini amp I have, but not sure of his username. Is he “autospec”?  That user sells Will Vincent modified Dynaco amps so he may be the one, or maybe not. Any help apprec... 
Good FM tuner for around $1K
Lots of good advice has been given, personally I’ve had a McIntosh MR 71 for years.  A very nice sounding tuner, especially after I had it brought back to factory specs by Audio Classics.  The problem is I don’t use it any more.  Why?  All the rad... 
Vandersteen 5
I’ve got Model 5’s too and am very happy with them. The advice you have gotten to contact Vandersteen is good, that would be a good second step. First step is to read the manual thouroughly and get yourself very familiar with how Vandersteen wants... 
HELP--- I need 1/4" - 20 thread rack feet for Billy Bags stand up rack ONLY M6 online
Herbie’s Audio Lab makes a “Threaded Stud Glider” in various thread pitches that will work great for this. They don’t offer them in black though.  
When did AudiogoN become a Showcase for The Music Room?
PS Audio started a trade in program a couple of years ago that has been very successful and is very generous.  Who resells those trade ins?  TMR for the most part.  So in addition to buying direct from users they also have all those PS Audio trade... 
Looking for Audioquest Email or Phone Contact
I contacted AudioQuest at [email protected] last November and they responded right away.  Can’t guarantee that’s still a good e-mail, but give it a try! 
PS Audio AC Regenerators
You probably won’t get too many responses, the P20 was released in early April and the P12/P15 are shipping this week or next.  A few dealers got them earlier, but I don’t know who they are and where they are located.  You will also get more infor... 
DIY High pass filters for Vandersteen Model 5A Carbon's?
I have similar concerns with the other folks who have responded. First off the Vandersteen filters are designed to be used with the Vandersteen subwoofer and amp that is housed in the lower half of the speaker.  Without that “lower half” any high ... 
Internet Radio: Good music that sounds good, who do you like?
If you like electronic music I would recommend SOMA FM, they have a wide variety of channels, not all electronica, but that’s what I listen to.  My favorite is Space Station.
