@8th-note I have to disagree with hour premise about all new music is rehashed from others. I’m no scientist but I have long been fascinated by how musical artists come up with their music. I’m talking about truly creative artists not pop artists ...

I am about to embark on my next upgrade journey

How is a DAC incompatible?  
My speaker upgrade journey - and a few questions
My first impression would be to use a tube pre with those speakers. But if you’re sticking with the Hegel then it’s a moot point.  
2024 Audio System Wish List
Build my Audio Note kit speakers. They will be finished in hickory.  
Did I damage my new amp
I learned this the hard way also. My tv remote triggers my preamp so I put on some music and the volume control was at about 3:00. Normal loud volume is at 10:00 so I was instantly blown out of my chair. That’s just one more thing to be aware of. ...
