Upgrading from Martin Logan ESL15a w/Force subs to Wilson Sasha Daw or Alexia 2 w/JL subs
@brianslids  Congrats!!  Way to go!!  After demoing multiple brands I settled in on a pair of S812's.  I also went with the Alexia's and am extremely happy.  As a former REL owner you know the benefits.....but the one I found most useful and succ... 
Shipping 80lb amps.
Use a freight company, palletize and strap the amps onto the pallet then shrink wrap over it so nothing can be placed on top of it.  Fragile stickers can also help.  Most importantly double box the amps. Good luck!  
Luxman 509x vs Hegel H390

Temporary Down Sizing - Integrated Amp Recommendations
Had a chance to demo the Luxman and  loved the musicality, detail and performance.  That's my vote.  
Computer updated and now Roon is blocked
You may want to try the dealer that you bought it from.  I had a similar issue and had to go into my settings on my iPhone (in your case computer) and reset a several of them.  Where are you located?  
WILL IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
Switching from SS amps to tubes was one of the best moves  I have made in my system. I went from McIntosh 1.25kwh Monoblocks to an Audio Research Ref160S. Have not missed my McIntosh at all. Much better SQ all the way around. You may want to find ... 
How good does my system have to be to realize an improvement with cables?
Since many of us have “upgraditis” I bought the best cables I could afford knowing that I will probably upgrade my dac at some point. I went with Transparent Power cord and Transparent XLR’s with Reference Quality. I have a Lumin T2 and when I swi... 
Silver Speaker Cables
@gnoworyta  Having used and experienced both I found that silver provided more detail and an improved soundstage.  They can, however, brighten your music a bit too much.  I am not sure of your amp and speaker combo but that also plays a big role.... 
Suggestion for $10K soup to nuts digital?
