Any CARY CAD 300SEI owners who use Furutech fuses?
Thanks Rodman. So you mean that the tube fuse arrow is pointed toward the amp, yes? But do you have any ideas about the proper orientation of the main fuse (the one directly beneath the plug on the 300SEI)? I think that normally you would point th... 
Any CARY CAD 300SEI owners who use Furutech fuses?
I realize that this is an old thread but maybe someone is still paying attention? Supposedly the HiFi Tuning fuses are directional, according to the arrow on the logo. But it is not clear, on the 300SEI, which way the current runs. The main fuse i... 
Power conditioners: Shunyata and PS Audio
But I believe that I have heard, hear and there, that the PSA regenerator is constricting. But then I've also heard reviewers say that it is phenomenal, irreplaceable. So who knows what to believe? 
Power conditioners: Shunyata and PS Audio
Furman, eh? Maybe I should look into that. Didn't even know that Mapleshade made AC products. 
Rega Saturn-R; Any impressions?
Actually, Jeff, I can tell you this. I've been having some conversation on this topic with a guy at a different forum. He is also a big Rega fan and has a complete Rega system. He says he tested the combinations thoroughly and that the Saturn-R is... 
Rega Saturn-R; Any impressions?
You're welcome, Jeff. Rega and Arcam have been my mainstays for the last 7-8 years.

Hi guys, I've been away for a while. Thanks for all the recommendations. I got a great deal on a Dectet, so I went with it. I can't find anything to dislike about it yet, and frankly I haven't had much time to really do a critical evaluation. (I b... 
PS Audio DAC II or Bryston: two great machines
Well, I went with the PWD II. At first I was not blown away, but I have to say that it's growing on me. The USB is definitely superior, using Amarra from my Macbook. And I'm also using my CDP via coax. Although USB is clearly superior to coax, I h... 
PS Audio PWD MkII vs W4S DAC2
Knghifi, I recently bought a PWD mkII and am looking to tinker with it. Frankly, I think it sounds a little bright in my system, and from the start I was not crazy about the inclusion of the touch-screen feature. You say that you replaced the Touc... 
PS Audio DAC II or Bryston: two great machines
Hi Goldprint,Honestly I didn't even know Cary had new DACs. I can't find much written about them and there are no dealers in my neighborhood. Both seem to be just over my price range though. Actually one reason why I am attracted to the PSA is bec...

Neal, are you saying that you swapped the MkII for the DSD? If so, how do you like the DSD?

Any thoughts on the PS Audio Dectet, or Power Center 3000?

Blue Circle, eh? Never heard of it. I wonder if I will regret the lack of surge protection. 
Favorite international pressings
Lots of US-distributed CDs are made in Mexico now. I have many US discs which seem fine or at least passable. But it's unpredictable. Last week I bought Donald Fagen's new CD, US version, and it's poor IMO, very muffled. Which is shocking actually... 
Favorite international pressings
I agree, I'm roundly disappointed by US pressings. And I've had the same experience with UK discs (some better, some not). Actually, I know about Discogs but it seems that most everything is subsumed under "EU." I don't find many broken out by ind...
