2021 Need help choosingt hi value, hi performing USB & SPDIF/RCA cable
In my all-tube separates system, paired with Sonus Faber Guarneri Homage speakers, a MacBook Air, running the Monoprice Monolith USB into an Uptone Iso Regen and then into a Jolida Glass FX DAC simply sounds great. I stream Qobuz and employ Audirv... 
How would you describe the sound of Luxman vs. McIntosh SS integrateds
@jefferywThanks for your comments. Can you kindly elaborate on what you mean by "there was always something missing?"If you can articulate the specifics, that would be quite helpful.

OP, I sure hope someone with real-world experience responds to your excellent query.  I, too, am curious. 
My MA252 saga
Hope you continue to love your MA252! I’m considering the MA352 as I continue to obsess about what I REALLY need and want out of my system. :). One thing’s for sure, I’d love some simplicity at this point.Hmmm, the reference to Talisker has got me... 
Schumann Resonator
The future do lie ahead, don’t it- at least for some. 
Schumann Resonator
Like others, I have no idea what the Schumann Resonators are, but am eager to learn. And to be clear, I like a good tweak as much as the next guy. But, I have a serious question: is it possible that long-term use of these devices might present a h... 
Recommendations for modern integrated with tone & balance controls other than Mcintosh
@joekapahulu I do feel your pain, brother. At this point, I'm very thankful that I still can hear and enjoy music, period.  Fortunately, the brain can perform wonderous compensations, and when I turn up the gain in the right channel mono preamp, t...

@bthartman & @builder3Thank you. It's guys like you who make this place such a valuable resource.  Since I've been using the same tube gear for so many years, I know virtually nothing about newer components, except for my excellent Wells Majes...

@james633 Vinyl, Qobuz, and CD in order of preference. After considerable, ongoing research, for now, at least, I may just put a couple of quads of KT150’s into my mono tube amps, get the Schitt Loki, and call it done. Yes, some of the suggestions...

@speakermasterAfter I get my second ’vid shot, (that, and  with some better weather) I’ll feel much more inclined to venture forth to audition some likely suspects. . Meanwhile, I’m compiling a lot of info. Everyone here has had something valuable...

@crouse99 Very good point!@jjss49 Noted and I've already contacted Schiit. I was told that the Loki is on B/O but will be available before March.  It should work great with my tube mono preamp. Not so useful with my Wells Integrated which does not...

Just want to let y’all know how much I appreciate your ongoing contributions.Now, here’s a thought from Audio Planet X:I’ve been reading about a gizmo called DSPeaker AntiMode. If this device works as claimed, I may have found the answer to my que...

Thank you compadres.  So far my research is leading me to Luxman.  RE: Anthem, I did hear one a couple of years ago at an audio boutique and found it extremely harsh-sounding- the worst of solid-state was my impression.  I was very surprised since...

@dekay You, sir, are tuned into where I am now at.  Yes, I still use and love my MFA gear. And to be clear it's not only Bruce Moore but Scott Frankland.  Scott has been the one who has maintained and upgraded my Lumi and M120 mono amps for many y...
