Audio Research versus McIntosh tube amps: anyone experience or compare both?
ARC and Mac amplifiers have completely different sounds. You need to hear them for yourself.

carlsbad2 ... Streaming can't use the error checking protocols that achieve bitperfect file transfer. Thus, dropped bits and the streamer's attempts to deal with it ... That is not true. Services such as Qobuz and Tidal use TCP/IP, which i... 
why expensive streamers
carlsbad2 The error correction people keep mentioning is generally not the correct term. For file transfer, there is data correction available. It will go back to the source and get the correct data. For streaming, there is not data correction, ... 
why expensive streamers
grislybutter I would have thought when analog is converted to digital and it becomes a stream, timing is encoded in the stream, the 0s and 1s. There is no layers of data, such as content and "pace" or whatever timing means, it's all one line...

grislybutter ... every time I go to a nearby dealer, they point to the "No Loitering" sign and lock the door ... You must have treated him very badly. I can only hope you learned from the experience.  
why expensive streamers
grislybutter I just don't get the $1,000 vs $20,000 streamer argument.  Have you tried listening for yourself, perhaps at a dealer who's willing to demo?  
Resolving Hum with Battery Back-up (EcoFlow) vs Power Conditioners: success vs failure
maxdukecapone Many high-end audio will have a model where they use a battery to clean up power. There are? Aurender and Esoteric come to mind. Those are usually the top models, too. Usually the battery's sole purpose is to ensure an orderl...

mswale You are more likely to damage a record with manual cleaning than the ultrasonic machine. That's very likely true, but in this case we don't know much about the machine he's using. Perhaps he's rigged a commercial machine intended fo... 
Some thoughts on ASR and the reviews
amir_asr If you need a non-performant tube amp to feel that emotion, you have no love for music, nor the talent that created it.... That would be a silly thing to say if it weren't so nasty and judgmental. I don't think you know a thing about ...

lewm Cleeds, I drive a well known German automobile. Can you name it with any certainty? No. Of course not. That’s my point. I don’t understand the coy secrecy here. dwcda I’m guessing based on the specs it’s a Humminguru. Of course e... 
Looking For Technicans That Would Rewire A SME V

Looking For Technicans That Would Rewire A SME V
I think Steve at VAS would be willing to use any wire or connector that you prefer. He and Ray are great guys - you might want to give 'em a call.
