Solid State Power Amps
@audphile1  +1 Pass X260.8 monos This is the best amp I have ever owned.  I have electrostatic speakers that are difficult to power correctly and the 260.8 makes them sing.    
YouTube star Jay loves McIntosh MC 901 amplifier
@ jetter + 1 The negativity is extreme, mostly based on reaction to a few YouTube posters that get extrapolated to everyone. It is very similar to all prejudiced and racist tirades.  Other adjectives for these sermons: envious, intolerant, ske... 
Deal Alert
@ secretguy Times Picayune Thanks for the trip down memory lane. I lived in New Orleans from 7 years old to 20 years old. Jesuit High and LSUNO. I learned to read from this newspaper.

+1 @soix . People need to reread their communications.  They should judge their writing as if read by someone with minimal knowledge of what they are discussing.  All abbreviations should have the first abbreviation spelled out.  All references s... 
For city apartment dweller audiophiles. Have you ever had neighbors banging on your walls?
Sometimes living in a society can be a bitch.    
ADD or Audiophile?
I listen to familiar Jazz music, streaming or CD, while reading stereo magazines, nothing that I have to concentrate on. If a particular song is highly enjoyed, I stop to appreciate one of life’s finer moments. If it is a new Jazz album suggested ... 
Aurender N200 - DAC compatability
@curiousjim I have some questions about your setup since I plan to have a similar one (Aurender to Denafrips) with either the N200 or N20 ( I am still undecided if the N20 is worth the extra money over an N200). My connection setup: Windows 10 i5... 
Help me find a pre-amp
@rkfaberdds I also have a  PS Audio BHK preamp. I love what it does to my system.  I can immerse myself in the music and float away for hours.  It's like meditation and all is good.  No drugs needed.  
Upgraded my cables and they transformed my system!!!
@cundare2     +1 confirmation bias measurements matter most ears can be misled hearing can be fooled its just 1s and 0s The list goes on and on.  I fail to understand why or how so many strangers to the OP can reign down such negative comments w... 
Revisiting Chinese Knockoff Cables
  @tksteingraber  I like your translation.    
What say you?
Thank you for the video.   Some of my thoughts during my listening: The love of the equipment and what it brings to these men is highly evident. I am not on this plane. I am glad I got away from vinyl a long time ago.  Too expensive and demanding,... 
Has buying and/or selling audio gear changed?
I am one of those guys who hates to dicker over price.  If I want an item and I think the price is ok, I am interested.  If the price is high to cover lowballers, I am not interested.  So, I am a great buyer.  However, I will never, never purchase...

WHY IS THERE SO MUCH HATE FOR THE HIGH END GEAR ON AUDIO GEAR?
This is an alleged conversation overheard at an electronics store in the Mall. “Honey, look at what they want to charge for that stereo equipment.  Isn’t that just ridiculous?  They are just a bunch of thieves hoping to sell a few units and get r... 
Anyone else using slugs instead of fuses? Comments on metals used and sound please
I really like reading all of these comments. Not because any of the comments will get me to try the different replacement ideas but for human psychological reasons. I enjoy that there are individuals who have to see what will happen if they do x,...
