Has Paypal suddenly started charging sales tax?
Thanks for the update. This was sure under the radar for me. 
List iof 192khz/24bit music in Qobuz
I find if I really want the best sound from Qobuz and I like a particular album or track, I buy it and download it. Tracks in HiRes are $2. Albums in HiRes (if you have Qobuz Sublime level) are about $10.) Even 16/44 is much better than the stream... 
Beatles best album and concert dvd?
Yep, I was always a bit obsessed about the lack of SACD/DSD Beatles recordings. (The Stones catalog managed to do this almost 20 years ago.) The great advances in DAC technology for PCM have of course helped with this, but it just seems a waste no... 
DAC Choices - $5,000 to $7,000
Used Chord DAVE. (No need for an Mscaler with this.)If you are into DSD files or SACDs or like a really deep sense of detail (and a system that can handle some soaring highs), look for an EMM labs DAC or high-end CD player with DAC capablity. (Aga... 
Beatles best album and concert dvd?
If you ever get into the vast library of Beatles rarities, alternative takes, and all sorts of Beatles archives out there on CD, you may go nuts. There are all sorts of musically valuable treasures out there, mostly on CD. Just google around for i... 
Experiences Selling Stuff On Audiogon?
For as long as I can remember, I never had any real bad experiences selling or buying many, many items over the last (roughly) 20 years (here on Audiogon). Audio people tend to be very honest, upstanding people. There is something about audiophile... 
Ever Hear a Tube CD player?
Modwright used to do a tube-mod of the Oppo Disc Players. Sometimes you can find them used.There were 2 tubes sticking up on the top of the player and a new separate power supply box. I had one but sold it .http://modwright.com/modifications/oppo-... 
Looking for more detail in a speaker
Ha-ha, probably could have a whole thread about the difference between "resolution" and "detail." But if anyone wants to take a stab at it should be a good read. :) 
Favorite Headphone Stands - What do you look for?
I would get the Woo [The Woo HPS-R.]. It lets the headphones hang naturally without making the pads press against anything in between them. You don’t want extra pressure on the pads if you can avoid it. They get enough of that on your head.And the... 
Looking for more detail in a speaker
Details? Try something with a ceramic driver for mids like a Kharma. Also (maybe first), look at getting a high-end DAC like an EMM or Chord (DAVE or TT2). 
Playback Designs Merlot?
Has anyone compared the Merlot on DSD to EMM labs (thanks in advance)?I’m a huge fan of EMM on SACD/DSD, but they do not make a small format DAC that can fit on my desk.I am specifically asking about DSD file performance.Thank you. 
Should I trust movers with my equipment?
Thanks. I'll see if they do long distance moves. I appreciate the info. 
Should I trust movers with my equipment?
Thanks again for the definitive answer. 
Should I trust movers with my equipment?
It's odd how most of my eqpt. has done just fine with UPS/FedEx/DHL, but moving companies manage to damage things. I was hoping moving companies would be at least as good as the major brand name shippers.Why is this? Why should movers treat you wo... 
Should I trust movers with my equipment?
That's scary. I have moved several times  (even long distance cross-country, but not recently) and never had anything lost. But thanks. Maybe things have changed for the worse...
