Naim Mu-so V2 All-in-One System..Bam+1 PS Audio Sprout100The no longer made Peachtree Audio decco125Sky (find one used) does it all and has bluetooth.. Got one for a kid and it's very good for what it is 
Which amplifier should i buy
+1 on MacThe https://rogershighfidelity.com/ Rogers 34S2 or KWM88 are great. I use an 88 to drive inefficient speakers. These are intagrated amps.

Maybe DSP? Think of your room as the most critical component. With your system off when you clap your hands or yell one word at the ceiling what do you hear? You didn’t venture into your power (treatment) but that’s possibly a part to improve? And...

Has Digital Audio Tech Plateaued - Is It Safe To Come Out Now?
How many of you have done a “blind” listening test with the same track(s) played from different sources? Pre Covid three of us did such a test in a very good room. A fourth kindly was the DJ host. (Prior to listening he had got the volume levels s...

Has Digital Audio Tech Plateaued - Is It Safe To Come Out Now?
@gdnrbob That’s great analogy that "digital audio is going to be a lot like digital photography" With respect I’d say the higher digital audio threshold hold is here now. I work as a commercial photographer. Once 4"x5" sheet film was needed for wh...

Power regenerator vs conditioner
The AudioQuest Niagara 7000 is seamless and (for me) has done the trick. It does not touch the sound. Have compared with direct into wall and all’s well. The AudioQuest Niagara 5000 should preform the same as the 7000. The price for the 7000 has g... 
CD or Streaming... am I missing out?

If your were to assemble a vintage system ?
Braun speakers (719 or 810) ADS too. Marantz 2225 with the VU meters Thornes TT? Something. All on eBay and with in you range. BUT!!!!I’d get new for the down time and future hidden costs that are certainly part of the rig. You’d have to stream. P...
