Tracks that bring out the best of YOUR digital system
  Moby, "Heroes" (Reprise Version) featuring Mindy Jones.  Quobuz. Haunting, beautiful, cover of the David Bowie song.  Superb recording!

New DAC issues
I'm with Czarivey on this.   With most component changes I've made, the difference, if any, has been very pronounced, right out of the box.  Usually Wife will comment, one way or the other. Happened with my Innous Zenith Mk 3, Yggdrasil LIM, and... 
Surge protector
As Dweller said, unplug everything first sign of thunder.   I am a ham also, and I unplug my antenna and throw the coax out the window if I see any lightning on the radar.   Have to cut my listening short sometimes, but I doubt any surge suppres... 
InnuOS Sense 2.6.0.
Here is what I am hearing with regard to a change in SQ after (a very smooth) update to Sense 2.6.0:  more "weight", especially in the lower-end....a "fuller" sound.  (Sorry, not a pro with audio-speak, those are the adjectives that popped into my... 
InnuOS Sense 2.6.0.
I'm just thrilled with the expanded Volume Slider...twice as long, at least!!  Allows for a finer adjustment in volume.  Thank you, Innuos.  
Goodbye Everyone
mulveling, You are correct, sir, there are lots of "lurkers" on this forum and, you are correct again, we do read and appreciate the "wiser one's" contributions. I consider myself mostly a lurker, but I'll take this opportunity to say Thanks to ... 
what are your top "audio bargins" in your system history?
About 1973.  Marantz 105 tuner, $45, brand new, at a Navy Exchange somewhere in the Med.  They had a stack of them that needed to be moved out, and my ship happened to be in port.  Several of my shipmates grabbed one too, after I passed the word. ... 
The 300B World
Built an Audio Electronic Supply (Cary) SE-1 kit amp in 1994.  It came with Cetron 300B's which worked beautifully until I replaced them with Psvane Acme 300B's about a year ago.  Keeping the Cetron's as backup. I have modded, and installed many ... 
Innuos 2.3.0 update - USB latency mode change
No issues here with 2.3 on my Zenith MK3.   I could not hear any diff between HI and LOW latency, but was only a quick listen. I just subscribed to Qobuz and so mostly listening to new, unfamiliar to me, music, not a good way to compare SQ.  I'l... 
Innuos 2.3.0 update - USB latency mode change
Got it, thank you, Lollypop !!! I'll try toggling between "Low" and "Normal" this evening....not sure I remember hearing much diff, but I'll have another listen. Did the update last night, but I've not had a chance to listen to 2.3.0; GrannyRing... 
Innuos 2.3.0 update - USB latency mode change
Hey Lollipop, will you please refresh my memory about the location of that Mode toggle switch?  I assume in System section, but I can't seem to find it. Thank you!!  
Is this the entrance to my rabbit-hole?
.....to quote SNS, "My Klipschorns are the last loudspeakers I will own, sense of live performers in room unsurpassed in my experience." My feelings exactly.  
Is this the entrance to my rabbit-hole?
I did the full Volti/Khorn upgrade package with my 1990's Khorns about 3 years ago. About $4,600 cost for all the new components.  EVERY component is removed from the cabinets, and replaced with much better parts. Completely changed the sound of ... 
Whole House Surge Protection…recommendations!
I live in North Florida, and I can tell you that having surge suppression will not guarantee anything.  Several years ago I lost two computers and a TV.  The brand-name surge suppressor company DID reimburse me for the losses, per their guarantee....
