Best 6NS7 Preamp for a Pass Labs XA25 amp
You can't go wrong with a Supratek preamp. I have a Supratek Sauvignon (highly modded) mated with a FW SIT-3 amp and the pairing is wonderful!The Supratek is the only component that I have not changed over the years. It's a keeper! 
Pass Labs AMP’s- What is the best Pass Amp Sound for You from past 10 years
I had a First Watt J2, Pass Labs XA 30.8, and First Watt SIT-3.They were all excellent amps but, I like my SIT-3 with my Horning Eufrodite Ellipse speakers the best. They are a 4ohm and 98db efficient speaker. Which is in the SIT-3 sweet zone.  I ... 
Is K and K Audio still in business?
I just received their newsletter a few days ago. I guess they are still in business. 
Looking to get the best out of Redbook Cd listening with Dac a d Transport under 5K?
Get the Jay’s Audio CDT-2 Mk.2 transport and a Denafrips Venus or Pontus Dac. Use a good Hdmi cable for the the i2s input and you’ll be very happy with the results! 
DENAFRIPS DAC ---- Owner Impressions, Feedback, General Discussion, Questions and more....
I have a Terminator and wanted to know which of the six caps are the output caps?  I’m might want to try better caps to squeeze a little better performance out of the DAC.I use the I2S input. 
Power cord recommendation for a dac?
TWL Digital American is very good and Pete is a great guy! Give him a call maybe he has some trade-in cords for a good price. 
Good CDTransport (player) without DAC?
Yes, the Jay’s Audio cdt2 mk.2 has I2S outputs and is an excellent transport. I like it better than my PS Audio DMP.Anybody needs a DMP let me know, I’ll give you a good price. 
I went from Class D to Luxman A/AB - And most of what you think is wrong
Hi Peter (bigkidz)Tommy’s Cherry amps are very good not only for being class d but, overall to all classes of amps. 
WireWorld Platinum Starlight 7 HDMI Cable
If you’re talking about their hdmi cable I bought one in 1/2 meter.  
If you still spin CD's their is a reference level Transport for reasonable money
@garrardI’m the guy who’s system bigkidz heard.First off, we used two different inputs so we are comparing apples to oranges.Between the Jays transport and the Terminator I use a HDMI Wireworld Platinum cable. With Metronome we used a Cerious Tech... 
Supratek or Don Sachs - which way to go?
I never heard Don Sachs preamp. I have a Supratek Sauvignon. It was modded with better parts but, the circuit wasn't changed. It is a wonderful piece and sounds great. I have it for about 13 years and is the only piece that I haven't changed, that... 
CD Transports
Bigkidz,What output did you use with the Jay's Audio transport? Using the I2s works best, if you have a DAC that can utilize that input. So if you used the spdif output you didn't hear it at its best, IMHO.I compared it to the Directstream Memory ... 
My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
WC, if your going to Axpona do check out GT audio panels and, if Alsyvox is there these panels are suppose to be special. They go down to 22hz no dynamic drivers necessary.  
Advice and help understanding, choosing a Widebander / Single Full Range Driver speaker?
David,I heard the Nenuphars at CAF paired with the FW SIT-3 amp (which I also have) and thought they sounded wonderful. You made a good choice very nice speakers. Are 3.5 watts enough to drive the speakers when you crank it up a bit?Once you go hi... 
Easy to drive, outstandingly natural sound from 40-50 Hz up.....AN-E, O/96, others?
I heard the Cube Audio Nenuphar at the CAF and it sounded really good.Bass went surprisingly deep for a single driver speaker and the midrange was very open and had no shout.
