2a3 ?
Good call Atmasphere. I owned the Melody i2a3 running 4x parallel 2a3's for 16-18 watts. A superbly built amp (why did I sell it?). I have the speakers to take advantage of five watts or less so no issues there. I believe I understand single e... 
Power supply poll for Chord Qutest
A ordered a LHY for my RME from TEK Electronics in the US on Jan.12. Order sent to LHY in China for properly configured unit. I received the piece today, less than one week. No time to listen but turnaround service was quite impressive as is bu... 
Advantages with an outboard power supply
Looking at several power supply options I ordered an LHY from TEK Electronics who rep Jays Audio. I also ordered a Sablon USB cable both of which should be here late next week.   
Ken Fritz article
After the enthusiasm for a million dollar hifi system the deeper, sadder story is  one of obsession, selfishness, alienation and loneliness. A sad tale of a one track, laser focused mind. But you’ve got to tip your hat for one fulfilling his life ... 
Using PA Speakers In A Home "Audiophile" Application!
Xilica XP series. Preferably model 4080 -   
Using PA Speakers In A Home "Audiophile" Application!
With regards to the Benchmark amps, I use two as monoblocks with the Jubilees. They are extremely quiet through these big horns. But honestly no more so than any of the First Watt amps I use -   
Using PA Speakers In A Home "Audiophile" Application!
I suppose my Klipsch “Jubilees” (535 bass bin/402 horn) from their Pro Cinema catalog might be stretched to call a PA speaker. Although designed for active application I run mine with passive crossovers and Faital compression drivers on the 402 ho... 
Advantages with an outboard power supply
— and another - LHY. Sold under the Jays Audio umbrella. Look to be well built and reasonably priced. I’m sending an inquiry for what model/voltage is recommended for the RME.

Farad build look very impressive. Their build menu is nearly that of Cheesecake Factory.  
A little deeper on amp power please....
I happened to be using 2a3 monoblocks when I bought Klipsch Jubilees and was selling my KHorns. The buyers wife wanted to hear vintage rock on the Jubes which I obliged. She asked for “louder, louder” when at some point I indicated that’s all ther... 
Music server vs. external hard drive to DAC
This is a great exercise where all input is appreciated. Goodlistening 64 has really defined my question. My external hard drive was populated with 2 terabytes of lossless music by a friend of nine played through a new Dell laptop into a RME dac. ... 
Music server vs. external hard drive to DAC
I appreciate the input but I believe I’m at fault in describing what I’m looking to accomplish or the equipment needed to do so. I’m looking and asking about a music streamer, not a server. So the question - will a relatively inexpensive streamer ... 
Looking at simple set-up for iMac to preamp
Thanks all - initially I will go with the low down, dirty and cheap solution as layed out by ths364 and onemug. Nest I will try the Behringer by afranta. Other solutuins may come but with no Dac new equipment needs to be purchased. How about some ...
