Shipping 80lb amps.

Is there such a thing as a FOREVER DAC/streamer?
Check out MSB Technologies.  Let us know what you decide to do and good luck in this journey!

I owned 804’s and therefore pick Tannoy’s.   
To ROON or not to ROON ?
You “have to Roon”. I have discovered so much new snd interesting music. Using both Tidal and Qobuz as well as a NAS.  Great high res music throughout the house and what a difference it makes.    go for it and let us know how you make out!!
