My Long List of Amplifiers and My Personal Review of Each!
Maybe the new Scanspeak tweeters in those Wilson DAWs are just a pain in the .ss to get broken in. There is still a possibility they need like a 1000 hours. This happens with new designs when a maker is going for ultimate detail reproduction.Also,...

I learned with experience that in high end audio, less is better. So yes, a driver design without a crossover is always more transparent. It has to be well made and implemented.I also don’t like the complicated electronics in the ML 15A ´s signal ...

Very interesting. Technically, Focal are hard to beat. Never forget they have been making their own drivers ever since they were founded. Very light and stiff polyglass sandwich cone tech.

Let’s not forget that , usually,  dac direct to amplifier(s) is supposed to sound thin, sterile... and less dynamic. This is absolutely not the case with the DcS dac, which means it has stunning preamplifier capabilities. Imho, there is not enough...

No preamp should always be better resolution wise. Any pair of interconnects added to a system brings two more contacts points in and out the preamplifier. There is always some  « loss   » in doing so.

Cardas Clear Beyond as interconnects is a masterful choice imho.But I would not go speaker cables with that brand. Never go full loom Cardas.  Speaker cables speaking,  you are much better with something like Shunyata Sigmas or Alphas with their Z...

One new powercord to consider is the very soon to be released Shunyata Alpha NR V2 which is said to better the Sigma NR. It should give the Audioquest pcs a pretty good run for their money.

Smaller names like Block Audio, Audiomica and others need the exposure to sell. What better way to use this thread as a marketing tool. Not saying it is a bad thing. We get to learn about new products. But always keep in mind a seller may hide beh...
