New expensive power cord for amp and no change in sound?
I will be testing this soon on a Pass amp as well. So this thread is definitely interesting. What I can say is , Ive noticed quite a substantial benefit when I upgraded PC's for my streamer dac, Preamp and older Integrated Amp.  
Preamplifier sound Quality impact in home theatre bypass
Never really noticed a difference. Used to use it with moon, now use it with a Sudgen preamp. I would need to test it out, but the Sugden is on standby when HT bypass in in use.

I wish I had concrete info, and better memory, but just recently, I forgot who I was speaking with, but they also told me as others have stated that they are done. I dismissed it because I thought maybe it was just a rumour , but I guess it seems ... 
Looking for a pre-amp (Pass, ARC, BAT, Sim, PS Audio)
@zprr let me know if you ever got the chance to compare the xp22 to the 740p? thanks

DAC suggestion for PC
Any Streamer suggestions? for tidal ? I just liked using my pc because its easy for me to open the app and change songs, etc while working.  So I guess getting the CXA61 seems like a good idea DAC wise?

@bigkidz Which preamp and amp are you using and for which model SF speaker? thanks  
Montreal Audio Show - anyone hear the FR30’s?
weird, I was there, a bit tight on time sadly, but I didn't seem them at the show.   
Arrows on cables.
hmm, I guess I connected my speaker wire properly, they at tellerium Q, so the arrow goes from integrated amp to the speakers.

Simaudio Moon 600i v2 VS Naim Supernait 3 for Dyanudio C20s
probably late, curious to know what you got, but from my experience, I have the 600i v1 and love it. I found it pairs extremely well with Dynaudio.I think finding the right combination/synergy is almost as important as what "sounds good"The only 2...
