CD Transports
Buy a reasonable transport and a Titans Audio Lab Helen, the combo surpasses many high end transports. 
Is the NuPrime CDT 9 Pro a Best Kept Secret?
Adding a Titans Audio Lab Helen to a CD transport will significantly improve the performance. 
If you still spin CD's their is a reference level Transport for reasonable money
Adding a reclocker, either the old Z-systems RDP-1 or the newer Titans Audio Lab Helen, will revive your transport significantly. 
Best used or new DAC under $3500

Unison Research Simply Italy - amazing
I have the same amplifier now breaking in. Very promising right out of the box. A sweet sounding little amp that has enough transparency and tube magic. 
High Fidelity Cables CT-1designed by Rick Schultz
I just dipped my toe into a pair of the CT-1 basic interconnects. Instantly I hear a reduction in background hiss/hum, and a neutrality that is very welcome. The break-in period has a little bumpy ride in a way that it sounds better one day and wo... 
Any opinions on the AMR Digital Processor 777 Dac?
Karmakuma, I will personally choose AMR DP777 over NAD M51. To me the NAD makes more Hi-Fi sense, the AMR makes more musical sense.More specifically, if you love big bass the NAD will do better. But the AMR's naturalness and delicacy in midrange i...

Any Simply Italy owners here? 
Recommendation for SS amp for biamping
I use two Arcam P38 power amps to bi-amp. Great results!
