Aurender N10 question…
@jl1ny -I agree with @lalitk . I listened to both side by side and the N200 is better. Better resolution, PRaT, and transparency. FWIW, I currently have the N100, which sounded terrific with an R2R DAC, not so much with the ES9038PRO SABRE DAC I... 
Jolida JD100S
@slovell -If you like the JD100 sound, yes. I still have mine (purchased in 2003), and periodically listen to it in a mid-fi system (Onkyo integrated and Audio Physic Yara speakers). BUT-for similar price you can get a better CD player, or DAC an... 
Bought an Audio Research Amp
@rfnoise -At 200W a channel, you have A LOT of choices. Given your tastes in music I would agree with the poster who said Sonus Faber. I'd also add Totem and the Spendor A or D series. Each speaker has terrific PRaT which is something your ARC com... 
Bought an Audio Research Amp
@rfnoise - "I’m thinking maybe trying some different speakers might be my next move. If anyone has any thoughts on what pairs well with the gear I have in a small room mid/nearfield setup I’d love to hear them. " What are your musical tastes and... 
Bought an Audio Research Amp
@rfnoise -Congratulations! Few things in this hobby compare to finding a piece of audio equipment that exceed expectations. I moved up the ARC foodchain, starting with a LS3B pre-amp. Once you get hooked on the ARC sound (not overly warm/romantic ...

Musetec (LKS) MH-DA005 DAC
Thanks sns! I know where the DPLL button is on the remote. I just can't figure out how to make the settings go down. When I push it, the bandwidth goes up. David  
Musetec (LKS) MH-DA005 DAC
It's been a while since I shared my impressions of my 005. Fully broken in now, it's an end-game DAC. One feature I like is how I can program the DPLL for my CD player (2) and music server (currently at 5). I do have DPLL question-How do I lower it?  
Project CD Transport Service
@jaymark -sorry to hear that! What happened?  
Project CD Transport Service
If you got it from a dealer, I would start there. You can also contact the US Pro-Ject rep. They get back to you very quickly.

fuzztone 3,540 posts 01-18-2022 1:56pm You're shopping wrong. You can still get the P-J delivered for about $2500 all in. I got their 4-way LPS for $200. -------------------- Do tell....... David  
Cheapest way to enhance SQ with digital streaming
Hi All-I am reading this thread with great interest. Thank you for all the info and recommendations. At the price point I am reading about, this is worth trying out. I have a question- Does the fiber cable need to be run in a straight line? My ro... 
Pro-Ject CD Box RS2 I2S pin definition
@charles1dad  Thanks for the update. That's terrific news about your Fidelizer Nikola 2 LPS.  I've been thinking about your description and am wondering if my following comments/observations are accurate? A quality LPS lowers floor noise allowin... 
Musetec (LKS) MH-DA005 DAC
@melm -Happy New Year! Since I have a MacBook Air, I will be burning CDs via an Apple USB Superdrive, using dBpoweramp CD Ripper because there is no version of Exact Audio Copy that is Mac compatible. I have an Aurender N100H with an Ethernet Gig... 
Digital Gear & Upgrade Question, What do I need?
@stevea11757 -You have awesome downstream components. I had a 5SE and have heard it paired with your Pass. They are a great combination. Considering the musical quality you get from these, I would choose Aurender and a DAC like  a Musutec 005. Th...
