What is you TIDAL setup?

CD Player pairing with Electrocompaniet ECI3
My experience is somewhat dated as I owned my ECI-3 a few years ago. However, the best results I experienced was paired with a Sony XA7ES CD Player via Balanced interconnects. I still miss listening to that combo sometimes as it sounded way better... 
How to tame brightness
A lot of solid advice here. One thing I will add is I would suggest changing your Integrated Amp. I owned one for a very brief period and had system-brightness issues with a pair of JM Labs. I actually borrowed a friends less expensive Cambridge A... 
what speakeers are a good match with unico se
I own an SE as well and so does a good friend of mine. I am using Sonus Faber Grand Pianos (HOME) with stunning results. The SE drives them with ease and matches them tonally. (Unison Research actually makes the Sonus Faber Musica Integrated amp f... 
Joshua Tree
Shardone makes some good points but I have to disagree with the theory of seeking out and listening to music based on what is recorded well. I mean if this was the norm, we would all be listening to Dire Straights, Patricia Barbara, and god knows ... 
Best integrated for rock music under $1,500?

The dial goes on the speaker side.Chris 
Has iTunes, etc. impacted your listening habits?
iTunes in combination with an AirPort Express definitely made things easy to enjoy my computer music collection. It made things so easy that I upgraded to a Squeezebox 3 and purchased a DAC for my Squeezebox and CD-Transport. I actually listen to ... 
My Comments, Tara Labs Temporal Continuum Cables.
I owned a pair of these cables and thought they were very good back in the day. They definitely got the most commnents as the dials and the size of the wire. Mine had an instructional CD on the dials and what to listen for. As I remember it would ... 
Krell 400xi vs. BAT VK-300x vs. McIntosh MA6900
I have heard the McIntosh in several systems and out of the three integrateds, I think it would be best suited for your speakers based on what you are looking for. I conisidered the McIntosh for my setup but paired with my Sonus Fabers, it was a l...
