Upgrade Interconnects/Cables or…?
@kennythekey I owned the Audible Illusions 3A with external LPS some years ago.  It was my first tube experience and I enjoyed it while I had it.  I let it go because of service lead time concerns. To be fair, the one repair issue I had was addre... 
Questioning my Oppo Sonica dac?
OPPO Sonica is a great DAC. Esp with Modwright tube mod and external LPS.    
How would you spend my next $5K?
@kennyc  I have an M Scaler.  T Pardo on order.   
How would you spend my next $5K?
@kennyc Great idea.  Have a Teddy Pardo coming. Ideal would be Farad or Sean Jacobs.    
looking to replace Fyne speaker jumper cable
I replaced the Tannoy jumpers on my Kensingtons with Transparent’s mid-priced jumpers.  More improvement in SQ than I anticipated.   I use mostly Transparent throughout.    
Best DAC’S $5k to $15k
I started with an OPPO Sonica, then added Modwright tube mod, then PS Audio Direct Stream. I now have DAVE/M Scaler with OPTO DX. Hands down massive improvement to my system. Purchased both as demos. With savings I replaced DAVE’s internal SMPS wi...

2024 Audio System Wish List
My wish list in no particular order: Second REL S/812 Farad or Sean Jacobs LPS for M Scaler to complement my SJ DC4/ARC6 DAVE LPSU Beginning room treatment (I know…but they’re so ugly)   Super-tweeters for my Tannoy Kensingtons  Upgrade to Tr...

Thanks for the thoughtful input.  Here are the responses to how you would spend my next $5K.  Seems a clear consensus between room acoustics and second sub.  Special kudos to those who said they would spend my $5K on their system. lol  Second sub... 
DAVE w/ or w/out M Scaler?
@cio52 I’ve watched that video.  My DAVE/M SCALER are connected through the OPTO/SX which has an BNC/optical interface between DAVE and M SCALER. Do you think this is the type of optical connection he was referring to?  
DAVE w/ or w/out M Scaler?
@shkong78  Do you use a Farad on the M Scaler or just the DAVE?  I’m interested in how FARAD or SJ would affect M Scaler.  I had a Teddy Pardo on my HMS but heard very little affect and am now back to the HMS’ SMPS.    
DAVE w/ or w/out M Scaler?
Since my earlier post about DAVE/M Scaler (which added resolution to the DAVE), I have added Sean Jacobs’ DC4/ARC6 LPSU which takes the DAVE/HMS to an entirely different level.  “Transformational” is the word I use to describe the improvement.  Ri... 
How would you spend my next $5K?
@hysteve Thanks.  I got a both USB and NET used, elsewise would not likely have sprung.  NET seemed to make a bigger difference although that may be because I got it first.  Deeper blacks. A more “settled/relaxed sound” and somehow a better grip o...
