Can we talk about Qobuz for a minute
@oldschool After reading your MP3 comment, I dusted off the iPod and it wasn’t bad. Listenable for sure but thinner than hi-res streaming. My wife aslo said no difference. So much for the wife test.  
Can we talk about Qobuz for a minute
PSThe Qobuz web interface and Qobuz app are more robust than the Lumin app (used on a dedicated iPad). They all work but I think the SQ is best when using the Lumin app. If using the native Qobuz playlists, listening to albums, or Qobuz playlists ... 
Can we talk about Qobuz for a minute
I have over 200 playlists I made on Qobuz. The interface (using a Lunin) isn’t tip top but it works well. SQ is excellent. Free trial.

Is it worth replacing an old amp?
While you are trying out amps please consider Tubes.  
What is the most important component to consider while building a new system?

How many of you are digital only systems?
My front end is digital streaming, with an on board DAC, into an analog integrated. I'm done with records and CD's.Like many I feel nostalgic about records and RtoR.IMO if I added back a TT again the set up would be at least 30K-40K to be on par. ...

Is $2,844 too much to pay for a fuse?
You fuse; then you accuse other audiophile crews.You lose screws musing looking for clues.Pay your dues.Your views? Some refuse. These overused fuse views give me the blues.Confusion ensues.Time for brews. You choose.
