Electric bill any high
I believe you power amp is pure Class A. Unless it has new, advanced technology like Krell iBias it will draw considerable power while in standby and even idle mode. I believe my Krell 300 XD draws like 2 watts in standby.  Regardless, I live in ... 
Requesting opinions about 4 specific amplifiers
I am Dynaudio customer with C2's. I have long been a Krell fan and listened to the latest SimAudio amplifiers at AXPONA and they are very nice. I do NOT believe they are any better than the latest Krell series. If you can find a nominally used Kre... 
Subwoofer for music only ?
For purposes of 2.0 stereo, you cannot do better than REL. GO TO THEIR WEBSITE AND THEY HAVE A TOOL THAT WILL HELP YOU SELECT THE PERFECT SUB FOR YOUR ROOM BASED ON YOUR ROOM SIZE AND SPEAKERS    
Best DAC’S $5k to $15k
At $13,500 I don't think a better DAC can be had than the Mola Mola Tambaqui DAC. Most reviewers and critics have concluded one has to spend > 50K to get anything that sounds nominally better.   
Great network streamers with only USB outputs
Sorry, @bunkertoy I hadn’t noticed you’d bought into the Antipodes ecosystem. Yes, company offers superb support. And they’re genuinely good people. I’ve met both Mark Cole and the owner Mark Jenkins. And many people have no idea how much better s... 
Great network streamers with only USB outputs
I had a Signature Optical Rendu Se and my unit had only USB but I believe newest model has added a port, like maybe AES but unsure. In any case, I LOVED Sonore and it does support Squeeze, of which I am a huge fan even though I had a lifetime sub ... 
Ethernet Cables - what are you using and why?
I just purchased and installed the new, Shunyata Theta Ethernet cable and it is STUNNING beyond belief. I honestly didn't believe an ethernet cable would matter so much given I am already using a fiber optic network. But this one cable running fro... 
Qobuz vs. Tidal
Qobuz absolutely sounds better, with a vastly superior collection of high resolution files, and if you choose to upgrade to their premium plan, you have the added benefit of being able to purchase the files for half off of the regular price, which... 
Best HIFI Stores LA/Orange
Scott Walker Audio. Has Acora from Canada - said to be the bomb! Expensive as in close to 40K but granite cabinets. Has Magic, and Ideon, for example   
Suggested Power Cable for Streamer
I was using some VERY good power cables - Nordost as well as a few higher end AQ cables. I "discovered" Cerious Tech LUMNISCATE cables last year and started with 2 pair of interconnects XLR cables. WOW! Had a discussion with Bob Grost the owner an... 
Power cable Advice...
You cannot do better at ANY price than a Cerious Tech Lumniscate cable. it runs about $1599 but there are deals from time to time - particulate if purchasing multiple cables. Lumniscate cables complete transformed my stem and were if particular be... 
Cerious Technologies
I don’t spend a lot of time on this forum but now that I happened by I’ll just add my two cents. I met Bob Grost a little over year ago since we discovered we were neighbors, living within 25 minutes of each other here in the Valley. My interest w... 
What makes One Music Server Sound Better than Another?
I have had a Small Green Computer and I think Andrew Gillis builds great machines. And I do not believe that our server can contribute to the ultimate sound quality of a system nearly as much as a streamer or player. That much is certain to me all... 
What makes One Music Server Sound Better than Another?
I believe this thread is which SERVER sounds best, as opposed to which STREAMER?    But in answer to your question regarding a cat 6 cable connecting the K41 and the K22, yes, confirmed, though not my first choice and likely not the final solutio... 
What makes One Music Server Sound Better than Another?
I can tell you that from having owned the Antipodes K41 for the better part of 2 months now I’m extraordinarily impressed by the sound and the level of support from Antipodes. Mark Cole is the best. I have it paired with the K22 player feeding a M...
