Favorite international pressings
Yes, I mean Redbooks, and I listen to all types of music. I have several from Harmonia Mundi, that's a great example. I even have two CDs from the mid-90s--a Marley CD and a Stone Roses CD--that were pressed in France and they sound better, of hig... 
Donald Fagen-Sunken Condos
Well, I don't expect my system to levitate, I just expect it to sound as good as Morph or the newer Steely Dan's and remasters, and it doesn't. I assumed these problems happen during the manufacturing process, but I guess I don't know much about i... 
Donald Fagen-Sunken Condos
Rebbi: I agree with your opinion on the quality of this recording. Fagen/Dan recordings are usually better than this. I'm wondering if anyone has heard the Japanese pressing? Lately I've been wondering about alternative pressings generally. I try ... 
Benefits of MF V-Link with a Mac-based system?
Realremo, another question: You are using both Wireworld and Lifatec. Do you really find significant difference between the two? 
Benefits of MF V-Link with a Mac-based system?
Thanks guys, I think I understand better now. I assumed initially that the V-Link was mostly being used by guys with no optical port on their computers, but then I saw posts from guys who were in fact using Macs with optical, but were using the V ... 
Musical Fidelity V-Link with Rega DAC REVIEW
Hello, I am now embarking on conversion to a computer-based system. Like many, I am going to use a Mac (specifically an older Macbook, circa 2007, but eventually will put it all on a Mac Mini) feeding into a Rega DAC. I'm in the process of uploadi... 
Glass v.s. Plastic Toslink
Actually, I have no experience at all with optical. Is 2m too much? Will there be a significant degradation from, say, 1m? 
Glass v.s. Plastic Toslink
I'm in need of a reasonably priced toslink to run audio from my Macbook to DAC. Mrderrick, you recommend Sys Concept 1300 over the Silfex. This is the only reference I have found to Sys Concept. Silfex seems to be highly popular, but can anyone el... 
Buying used equipment in Japan
Thanks, Hakuchosan, this is helpful advice. I am worried about availability and also price. So I suppose it is easy to find dealers in the major cities, but even used equipment is very expensive? (Yes, and I have also heard that it is difficult to... 
Cary XCiter DAC vs Rega DAC
Yah, it is a tough choice. But I seem to be hearing that there is no significant quality difference. At least not $500 worth of difference. 
Cary XCiter DAC vs Rega DAC
My CDP is an Arcam DV79. It sounds very good, but I used to keep both this and a Rega Saturn, so I know the difference in sound. I was thinking about getting another Saturn, but suddenly thought that the DAC might be a better alternative. Because ... 
Plinius 9100 and 9200?
Thanks, now I understand. I think I should be looking in the B range. 
Plinius 9100 and 9200?
Thanks for the responses. So is it safe to say that from the 8100 to the 9200 this is essentially the same amp with incremental improvements in each one but no earth-shattering improvements from model to model? 
Plinius 9100 and 9200?
For that matter, what about the 8100, 8200, and 8200 mkII? Are these all just successive versions with steady improvements? Are the differences substantial? 
Speakers for Dialogue 2
Thanks for the info. This assures me I should stick to my resolution not to buy any more audio components without hearing them first.
