Recommendations for fast sounding cables
I vote for Transparent Audio Reference Gen 5 interconnect and speaker cables.I found Reference Gen 5 to deliver exceptional smoothness, tight articulated base, air and spaciousness with remarkable stage illusion. Reference level Gen 5 is the most ...

Transparent Audio has been very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. I sold off all my tube gear and went to very high end solid state.  My Reference grade cables were all High Z impedance.  Transparent took all my cables and converted (calibrated... 
Focal Sopra 2 vs Sopra 3?
I am amazed how people are surprised that the Sopra 3 outperforms the Sopra 2.  That is how Focal designed them to be.  Spend lots more and get some benefits in performance. Don't beat yourself up comparing the two speakers. Both 2 and 3 are super... 
Transparent audio
I have to laugh at the post saying that changing from Transparent was "like removing a blanket off the speakers."  Pathetic posts.Ignorance and cluelessness have no bounds in the world of audio.

Best amp for Wilson sasha DAW
I liked the Constellation Taurus with the DAWs.  Extremely well controlled, transparent and highly dynamic. The Taurus monoblocks have huge headroom which bring the Sashas alive.  
Y No YG ?
When does a $110,000 speaker pair actually cost at least $160,000 or more?When you incorporate the necessary high end preamp and  amplifier(s) to drive the speakers to deliver their highest possible sonic performance.  
Noise from phono. Help please.
Be certain to use balanced cable with your balanced equipment.Have proper grounding.Also, use of noise reduction equipment (distribution/ power conditioning) can also be very helpful.  
Audio Research GS150 vs REF150 SE
I had the REF 150SE amps and recently have moved into the GS150. I have never regretted selling the 150SE amps.Forget about anyone referring to 'magic.'  That is total nonsense. The GS150 amp really delivers the goods without any need for 'magic.'...

Audio Research Reference 6 or Mark Levinson Reference n32
Educated?  Ha ha haaaaaa.   What a presumptive, cavalier and feckless term to describe the sound of audio gear. It is totally pointless and fustian. 
DAW vs Alexia 1 vs Sasha 2, descending order of $$
