|Revisiting Chinese Knockoff Cables|
@tweak1 - yes, I am using a AQ Wel Signature with DBS coax digital cable w/dbs. Quiet, neutral, and nicely detailed too.
|Musetec (LKS) MH-DA005 DAC|
@melm - Currently just using a modified, rather pedestrian but serviceable Cambridge CXC v2 transport. For streaming I have a new in box Bluesound Vault 2i but have not hooked it up; will probably sell it NIB and upgrade soon. Still going through ...
|Musetec (LKS) MH-DA005 DAC|
Wanted to chime in as another very satisfied Musetec owner. And after a couple or real losers (Neardost cables) - I feel I lucked out on another couple of Chinese ’experiments’ too. I am using the Musetec with an Argento Flow Master (copy?) power...
|NSMT Model 75 in the House!|
Still seem a wee bit pricey at $5-7K, but I'm surprised more manufacturers haven't used the widebander + powered woofer in a small tower arrangement.
|Counterfeit Chinese Cables|
I think it’s kind of a cool ’marketing 101’ thought experiment to hear the various opinions expressed here. And audio cables are the perfect product. Most would agree that a $10,000 power cord (authentic) is a bit silly, even if most would agree ...
|SPDIF Coax cable recommendation?|
I would advise to get the best you can under your perceived budget. $200(?) First thoughts for under $200 would be something from Silnote, Audio Envy, Moon Audio, Zavfino, Morrow Audio. Second thought if you wanted [much] cheaper (in agreement w...

|Musetec Audio MH-DA005 ES9038 Pro x2 DAC VS the Lab12 dac1 reference Tube Hybrid Dac|
The only comparison that I seem to remember was by username(s) DBB or technorob over on the head-fi board. Whomever it was said the Lab 12 lacked dynamics (had all the slam of a wet noodle..), so he dismissed it from his auditioning comparisons fa...
|Seeking DAC using the ESS ES9038PRO, but not a streamer|
Don’t have any experience with any of the above, but would probably recommend the Gustard X26 Pro if your budget allowed. Or at twice the price, the Musetec DA005 is amazing.
|I have NOVA V's and I am not happy|
Keep your amp and speakers. Ditch the Kimber 8TC. Get some MIT Matrix 38 or 60 (HD or Rev) speaker cables. Retain/improve the detail, add just a tiny bit of warmth, and lose the glare.
|Let's talk about Buckeye's new 3 channel amp|
Sooooo... You have a beef. You bought something and it has a crappy build and the sound sucks. And you can’t return it. Three options - try your best to get it repaired or replaced. Pursue the matter in small claims court and notify your state...

Looking forward to hear impressions of GAN1 beta-testers @verdantaudio and @yyzsantabarbara on comparisons|whether GAN1 sounds better than $7K dacs.

I think those are the Backes and Mueller Line 50. https://www.hifiengine.com/manual_library/backes-mueller/bm-line-50.shtml
