Any Bluesound Node2 owners
I have used Node products for a few years. I started with a Node N100. I used the internal DAC. This worked good for my needs and my budget. I moved up to the Node 2. Again,I used the internal DAC for a couple years before dipping my toes in the s...

What's your favorite boutique speaker maker
Carl Marchisotto/ Nola speakers.  
Poor Fritz
I have never seen a bad word about the man,or his speakers.  To me at least, it seems that when folks buy his speakers,they keep them. I constantly check classifieds,and I think I’ve only seen 1 or 2 pairs come up for sale in the last couple of ye...

Sorry to burst your bubble,but you ain’t even in the top 10.  You’re going to have to really up your “jerk” game to make your way up there.  
What to upgrade next.
I would invest in a good streamer and external DAC. The Node 2i is a good place to start for a streamer. I really can’t recommend the right DAC as I have just started out on the external DAC journey. What I am using now,I’m sure won’t still be in ...

Crackling Noise From Brand New Audio System
I had the same “crackling” . I had this in my second streaming only system. It was driving me batty! I switched amps,I switched speakers. Still a low level crackling. I finally replaced the cable from my Bluesound Node 2,to my DAC, BINGO! No more ... 
KEF ls50 meta’s are on the way
 This should really drop the used pricing on the original LS50. It will be interesting to see how low they will go in the next year.
