In the end, it is what each of us likes - our own personal reference or standard. That does not make it THE standard, it just makes it what it is, what WE like best. There is no right or wrong, so we need to live and let live. Enjoy music the way ...

It may be "lazy" as WC points out, but it is also a very wonderful way to find new music. Opting out of streaming music wholesale because they may not have the best version of a recording is shooting one's self in the foot. I'd encourage you to gi...

@whitecamaross I will respectfully disagree with you on the XLF vs Alexx. I've heard the Alexandria XLF a few times, but after hearing the Alexx, I'd think going to the XLF is a backwards move or a side step at best. I've never had them in my room...

@whitecamaross As you may remember, I've heard the Ref10 pre many times. I forget if I heard the 160Ms with Ref6 or 10, but I don't think the Ref10 could rescue the 160Ms. I think the Ref10 is one of the best preamps I've ever heard. And the Ref10...

Turntables are great. You just need an amazing table, arm, arm wire, cartridge, platform, phono pre, high quality interconnect, etc. And yes, it will be very rewarding. But unlike having a digital source that is also optimized, and has access to T...

With all due respect, "Let's just watch the videos or simply leave this thread", is the best bit of advice I've seen in here in a while. If you don't like the channel, you are free to move on to the next one.

$5k to make the MSB dac including R&D. Now that is hilarious.

At least one poster hear stratifies amps into levels like they can be absolutely graded into levels. While I may also somewhat agree, this will not work on an absolute basis. Best way to go about it is to pick the speaker you must have, then demo ...
