MHDT Orchid or Audio Mirror/ pick one for me please
I sold my Denafrips Terminator once I got my AM Tubadour III se dac. It sounds more musical and has better tonality. It just sounds more natural in my set-up without giving up detail. The Termy might be a little cleaner, but doesn't have the textu... 
Anyone tried the Denafrips CD transport?
When I emailed Alvin about that he said Jay’s Audio has been making transports for many many years. He said Jay’s is the better transport.Maybe for hi-res and dsd the Denafrips would be better, but I do strictly Redbook and the Jay’s using the I2S... 
Seeking advice on Speakers that create an intimate 2 channel listening experience
I’ll second the Horning Eufrodite Ellipse with a good SET 300b amp. My room is almost as big as yours and they sound wonderful in my space. You can hear them at Jeff’s place (High Water Sound) in NYC. 
First Watt SIT-3 proper speaker matches
I run Horning Eufrodite Ellipse with my FW SIT-3 and the pairing is excellent. I also use my Frankenstein Mk.2 300b's mono's and like them a little better, but I like tubes and the SIT-3 is a beautiful sounding SS amp.If the Eufrodites are too big... 
Supratek Owners Thread
The LTA is definitely on the cool side compared to a Supratek! I tried the first one that came out and didn’t like it at all. Maybe the newer ones are better. 
Best 6SN7 TUBES out there
For new tubes the Shuguang Dawning Series WE6SN7 PLUS are excellent. I'm actually surprised how good they are. Give them around 100 plus hrs. to settle down. Otherwise, you'll spend much more for Tung-Sol round plates or Sylvania 6sn7w tubes. Thes...

Shootout of Nos 6sn7 tubes
Yes those are National Union tubes. The Gray glass NU tubes bass was a little soft. Those black glass have good bass and are liquid sounding. You should enjoy them.  
Best DAC for around $2,500 or less
Audio Mirror Tubadour III SE. I had a Denafrips Terminator before the AM, but like the Tubadour III SE better. It's more natural and musical sounding and still has plenty of detail and openess. 
Shootout of Nos 6sn7 tubes
shkong78, I have a pair of Melz 1578 tubes. Can you please tell me how to check for date of manufacturing? 
Most Musical 6NS7 tube for a Preamp?
Yeah, it’s all about synergy mca_nyc.I tried the LTA MZ2 which everybody was raving about about 2 years ago and in my setup it sounded broken, flat, boring, 2 dimensional, and lifeless compared to my preamp. I tried all my best tubes but still was... 
Has anyone compared a Denafrips Terminator to an Audio Mirror Tubadour III SE
Also, I forgot to ask if the Termi had proper warmup? 
Has anyone compared a Denafrips Terminator to an Audio Mirror Tubadour III SE
Thx Teajay,That's the kind of info I was looking for! Hopefully, we'll get some more opinions and the subject. 
Has anyone compared a Denafrips Terminator to an Audio Mirror Tubadour III SE
Thanks Terry, I did read your review. That's why I'm curious about the Tubadour III SE Dac. Facten brings out a good point. If you Guys didn't compare in the same system, then how can you come to that conclusion.Maybe your setup is more musical an... 
Best Tonearm Lifter?
The Little Fwend is excellent. Made very well and the lift is very smooth.It is expansive for what it is but, I bought it at an Audio show and got a discount.
