BlueSound Stinks(!), anyone?
 No problem with any of my node 2i’s (5 in total).  I switched from Sonos several months ago. I did have a problem getting the original node 2 to connect to my Internet. The 2i’s have been wonderful. I use my iPhone 8+ to control the app. 
Integrated Amp $1200 or less
I also like rogue Audio integrateds as well. I owned the Atlas Magnum, which is the power amp version of the Chronos magnum. It was wonderful. I have also heard the Sphinx and Pharaoh many times at Quest For Sound in Bensalem, Pennsylvania. I thin... 
Upgrade to Maggi 3.7i or Tekton Moab?
I have heard a couple of pair of Tektons and was not overly impressed.Have had very limited experience with them and could not tell you what the amplification was or if they were properly set up in the room. On the other hand, I have loved every p... 
Integrated Amp $1200 or less
I saw that somebody mentioned the Wyred 4 Sound Integrated sold by Underwood Wally. If you want to buy new,the 500 Mk II would be a great buy! One of my good Audio buddies purchased the original 500. I believe he got it for $700 on this site. I wa...

Martin Logan Motion 16 bookshelf speakers were closed out by Audio Advisor and Magnolia  for about $450/pair. You can find a nice pair used for $300 or less. I use them in my bedroom system And have been very pleased every time I listen!They are i... 
The very best sound: Direct to Disc
One of my favorite records to listen to is: Les Brown and his band of renown Goes Direct To Disc. It was manufactured in West Germany and the label is Century Records. It says limited edition.I was also wondering if anybody else finds 45 RPM album... 
Best bookshelf loudspeakers under 10,000 for the pair
Cannot wrong with KEF Reference ones. The older R 300s and current R 3’s get you pretty close. I have owned the Reference 1 and R 300, as well as listening to them many times at Quest For Sound in Bensalem, PA. They have always impressed with a wi... 
What Have I Bought?
Stock Advents sounded great. If you ever have the opportunity to hear a pair that has been given the “magic” treatment by Bill Legall at Millersound you will not believe your ears! 
Luxman dealers
While accompanying my wife on a business trip, l discovered Command Performance A/V in Falls Church, VA. It is a beautiful store with a nice selection of high-end Audio gear. They are very nice people as well. Since visiting I cannot stop thinking...

Most recordings you own by a single artist, group, or composer
The Allman Brothers BandMost of the commercially available recordings on CD and Vinyl as well as instant live recordings of the shows I attended purchased at the Beacon.Crazy thing is that even though I own all of these recordings, I now listen al... 
Amp for kef reference 1
Our local KEF dealer (Quest for Sound In Bensalem, PA) has them in a room where they are paired with the current Pariasound Halo integrated amplifier as well as the Rogue Pharaoh integrated. I think they sound terrific with both. I also love the R... 
Emotiva not so good
I am 62 years old and have been in the hobby for 45+ years. Early on most of my systems were mass market and Mid-fi. An awful lot of Adcom, Yamaha, Hafler, Carver and B&K... went through my home and my systems. Now you are more likely to find ... 
Separates or Integrated? What makes more sense?
I have read the entire thread and agree with most all of the posts. I typically choose separates, but my best audio buddy goes with integrateds. I do own a couple of integrated amplifiers as well.I accompanied my wife on a business trip last week ... 
Hunt for new floor standers
By the way, I have heard the JBL L 100 reissues. One of the local dealers here in PA are selling their demos. If I had somewhere to put them I would buy them. The same dealer has the Revel F208 demos on sale as well. If I could fit them somewhere ...
