Infigo Cables
Urbie, When you make comments about components and/or cables that you have never heard, you become part of the problem with this hobby.   
Infigo Cables
I think it’s important to say that I don’t believe in best or absolutes regarding audio components/cables. I’ve tried and/or owned the following cables in my system: Wireworld Platinum series 7 and 8; Audioquest Fire; Shunyata Sigma and Omega; Tra... 
Monitor Audio question
I sent you a PM.  
Is Accuphase a good match for my system?
lalitk, That’s why I prefaced my comments with, "In the context of my system." I submit too many audiophiles make it about a particular component and forget they’re listening to a system. "I believe a more appropriate and fair comparison would h... 
Is Accuphase a good match for my system?
Urbie, The Accuphase E-800 didn’t work in my system. In the context of my system the E-800 lacks dimensionality, resolution, and bass articulation. It may be great in other systems.  
Is Accuphase a good match for my system?
I had a home audition of the Accuphase E-800 several months ago. My suggestion is to get a home audition and let your own ears decide. No component works well in every system and one person's medicine, is another's poison.

Chord Dave and lInear power supply
nkj, As an owner of a Dave, what does "Really transformational" mean? What exactly does the Farad improve...detail, dynamics, resolution, bass articulation, etc?    
Wireworld Platinum Starlight 8 USB
I've owned a Audioquest Diamond, WW Platinum series 7 & 8. I directly compared the Shunyata Omega and WW Platinum series 8 USB cables to the Infigo USB cable. In my system the Infigo USB cable is more open, detailed, and natural sounding.   
Chord Dave and lInear power supply
I've owned a PS Audio Directstream, Bricasti M1, Jeff Rowland Aeris, and currently own a Chord Dave DAC. The Dave may have a cheap power supply, but I have yet to hear a DAC in it's price range that I prefer in my system. That being said, I would ... 
Grimm MU1 vs Antipodes K40
metaldetektor, I'm not looking to change from Antipodes, but I was curious about what Antipodes model you compared the Grimm to.  
Chord Dave and lInear power supply
carlsbad, Years and years ago I repaired old vacuum tube televisions at my dad's store. I know replacing the Dave's power supply is rather simple to do, but for some reason I just don't want to. I'd rather change DACs than change the Dave's power... 
Grimm MU1 vs Antipodes K40
metaldetektor, What Antipodes did you compare to the Grimm?  
Chord Dave and lInear power supply
I've owned a Chord Dave for a couple of years, but have been very hesitant to purchase an upgraded power supply. Although, I have technical experience, I don't want to disconnect the current power supply and install the new one.
