Help with high end bookshelf speakers
@renosteve What’s your budget? What speakers do you currently have? The PS Audio FR-5’s are fairly inexpensive and the Borreson M1’s are not. Help us give better advice.  
Deal Alert
What a great deal!

Sonus Faber Question
I have been trying to hear the Sonus Farber Amati for months now and am getting very frustrated.  No one in my state has a demo pair to listen to and I’ve tried several times to schedule a demo of the Lilium’s ( Because they were close) and severa...

All Hail the meek --yet mighty – NODE 2i
I have a N130, with a Teddy Pardo LPS in my second system.  While I don’t listen to it as often, it still sounds great after 3+ years.  
Denafrips Pontus *15th* ?

Dirty little secret of Pedigreed, decades old Speaker line - no one will address
@ozzy62  I second this. All in favor raise your right hand.  No Jim,  your other right hand!😁 one last chance to answer the question lest you be labeled a lame internet troll.  
Aurender Conductor V4 and Qobuz phone app don't match
Sorry to say I have had issues with the Conductor app as well. Things missing or when listening to an artist, the app goes back to asking about genres I might be wanting to listen to instead of staying with the artist I was just listening to. Ver... 
Dirty little secret of Pedigreed, decades old Speaker line - no one will address
