Would like to try a tube preamp after years of solid state and hybrid
Aric Audio Motherlode.  I liked it so much, I bought a second one for one of my other two channel systems.  No desire to look elsewhere.  
Stack Audio-SmoothLAN Network Filter- WOW!
I am waiting on my second filter.  The one nice thing about this filter is that it does not favor any part of the frequency spectrum.  Really a noticeable impact on adding space, tonal density and impact.  
Preamp suggestions for Atma-Sphere Class D Monoblocks
+1 Aric Audio Motherlode XL. I have used this combination in my refernce system and it sounded superb. 
New, Very Interesting CD Transport
I wish my auditory neurons were cardboard like Jason's.  Would have saved me a lot of money.  My system is highly resolving and can make grown men cry.  I have used multiple CD transports and though the differences are not always huge, none of the... 
Stack Audio-SmoothLAN Network Filter- WOW!
Straight out of the box cold, I agree wholeheartedly with "WOW".  Space, a more forward presentation, greater tonality and more presence.  So easy to hear this pleasing sonic change.  This Uber cheap filter had the same impact in my system as the ... 
Warm, yet detailed tube preamp
I have the Aric Motherlode top end preamp.  Also have the Audio GD 10 tube preamp as well in one of my ancillary two channel systems.  I second the endorsement of both.  Aric Audio is a USA small business.  Audio GD is Chinese made and imported by... 
Stack Audio-SmoothLAN Network Filter- WOW!
Well, thanks to Ozzy, my order is in!  Another damn tweak...  
Anyone else order Caladans from Clayton Shaw?
I am tempted to pick up a pair Caldans.  I dealt with Clayton previously when I purchased a pair of Spatial X5s.  He is a first rate guy.  My suspicion is that any communication lapses have zero to do with any shady intent.  Just gotta figure out ... 
Space Tech Lab super rectifier
Not sure what the issue with this excellent product is?  I have the model just below the top of the line model and I can unequivocally state that this device works superbly rendering a wider deeper soundstage, greater air and just more dynamic rea... 
Fuse for Parasound JC 1 monoblock
@glennewdick but think of those enhanced sonics you would end up with???  
Solid state amp vs tube amps
There are differences that are more easily detected, as stated above, the more resolving your system is.  In your system u have to figure out which general amplifier type u like better.  Complicating matters is that within an amplifier type there ... 
Would the 300W CJ ART 300 Monoblocks be too much for my Avalon Ascendants?
Two amps that I recently purchased are stellar.  The PSAudio BHK 300 hybrid monoblcks and the Atma-Sphere 100 wpc class d monoblocks.  Just in case u are open to suggestions....  
Atma-Sphere Class D… Amazing
@cymivka I debated between Atma- Sphere and AGD monoblocks for my second amp purchase.  Talked to both designers.  I settled on the Atma-Sphere so I have never heard the AGDs.  I do have a LSA Voyager Gan modded amp that sounds really nice.  The A... 
Excellent Solid State or Hybrid Monoblocks Recommendations
@joey54 I know of them but have never heard them.  I am overrun with superb monoblocks right now - PSAudio Signature 300s, Atma-Sphere class ds, and heavily modded Parasound JC1 monoblocks.  I will put them on my seek and listen list for sure.  
Excellent Solid State or Hybrid Monoblocks Recommendations
@tweak1 sorry to hear about your Voyager GAN mishap. These amps show up for a little over a grand on this site. Ric modded mine. It is not the best amp that I have for sure. However, the are really good and, for the money, is a great little amp. ...
