@yyzsantabarbara  I'm also going to get a R2R DAC and the one on my shortlist for my Thiel rig is the Aqua Formula xHD v2.Check out Totaldac they make very analogue sounding R2R Dacs too.

3.7s are not made for very large rooms, you loose all the bass.People with very large rooms will look at more suitable speakers for this size room.

No you don't need more power, taste is another thing.

Hegel is nowhere near Gryphon quality. Hegel is midfi compared to Gryphon. 
Amp upgrade for Thiel CS 3.7
I've gone through most amps available on the market in the past few years and i came to the conclusion that the best one of them all for Thiel CS 3.7s is the Gryphon Diablo 300 by a wide margin.For any future Thiel CS 3.7 owner i've done the job f...
