Preamp suggestions for Atma-Sphere Class D Monoblocks
Congrats.  You’re in for a real treat.  I use a MP-3 with both an A-S S30 and Class D amps.  It’s a wonderful combination that you would be hard pressed to better unless spending considerably more $$$.  Your Totems (which I also have owned) will r... 
Denafrips Pontus *15th* ?
I think it’s pretty obvious that something is going on behind the seen at Vineshine and Denafrips. But, at this point it’s only rumors. We can continue to speculate all we want but until some sort of formal announcement is made it remains speculat... 
Innuos Zen mk3 NG and Zenith mk3 NG introduced at Munich
With the Terminator (or T+) or any other DAC with I2S input it would seem that that I2S module out of the new Innuos models would be preferred.  What is confusing to me and what’s unclear in their announcement of the NG products is whether the mod... 
Denafrips Pontus *15th* ?
Seems like the noise has died off pretty quickly.  I remember when the 12th edition came out the rumbling went on for quite some time.  Also seems very strange that no “official” announcement about the 15th has been issued here or anywhere else th... 
Denafrips Pontus *15th* ?
@grpkmp if you’re that concerned with resale buy a used model.  Quite frankly I think you will be hard pressed to hear much of a difference between a recent version Pontus II and Pontus 15th, if you hear any difference at all.  
Has anyone tried to launch a for sale ad here, lately?
I’m glad to see I’m not the only one who feels the new fee structure and sales policies are not worth the time or effort.    
My experience with The Music Room
I have both bought and sold from/to them several times.  Each transaction has been trouble free. I couldn’t have expected or asked for more.  
Denafrips Pontus *15th* ?
It seems you have to go to the “Buy Now” link on the Denafrips website to see the reference to the Pontus 15th as well as other 15th models. This brings up another interesting factoid in that pricing which appears to be in US dollars on the Denafr... 
Denafrips Pontus *15th* ?
Check the Denafrips Terminator 2 bs thread.  Seems strange but true. Please post once/if you hear back.  
Denafrips Terminator 2 bs. ?
@bcrock did you contact and hear back from Denafrips/Vinshine?  There is not too much chatter about this “new version” that I have seen, which if true, is suprising      
Denafrips Terminator 2 bs. ?
As a long time Denafrips user I find the above link very interesting and quite surprising. A picture is worth a thousand words so unless the photo has been photo shopped it seems there is still another new version of the Terminator.  It also seems... 
I’m afraid my Audio Aero Capitole mk2 has died
I had a Capitol years ago.  It was a very nice player for the times but improvements in digital since then are monumental.  Time to move on, imo.  I’d be surprised if parts are even available if you would attempt to repair.  
Eversolo or Aurender: Options and Opinions
Have you tried your new Pontus without the Iris?  You might find that the Pontus upgrade gives you much of what you’re looking for using your Lumin as a source.  It did me when I upgraded from an Ares to the Pontus when I first started using outbo... 
Upgrade from BluNode 2i with a new DAC or Integrated Streamer DAC?
More good suggestions from siox.  Coincidently my 2nd DAC was the Pontus II after the Ares II.  I also upgraded the power supply on my Node with a LPS.  Going that route or something similar will be a huge improvement over what you currently are u... 
Upgrade from BluNode 2i with a new DAC or Integrated Streamer DAC?
I’m your age and did what you’re thinking about a few years ago. I also sold my vinyl system and now stream exclusively. First, don’t doubt your hearing ability unless your Dr. has told you otherwise. While I know I don’t hear as well as I did whe...
