BluSound Node and Node 2
Have had my Node2 for five years now. Have had a occasional glitch here and there, but very reliable otherwise. I've always downloaded any and all updates. Don't know if this has anything to do with it's strong reliability, but I'm sure it hasn't ... 
Thoughts about the "Cheapaudioman" on YouTube
@musicpod  That was more tongue-in-cheek on my part. I think the audio snobs out there believe he can't possibly have anything to offer the hifi enthusiasts or newbies with the caliber of equipment he chooses to review. I think that could be con... 
Thoughts about the "Cheapaudioman" on YouTube
@mapman, I find him entertaining. I think he has a good grasp of inexpensive value oriented equipment simply because he reviews so much of it. I believe he is a good place to start if you are new to this hobby. He is respectful of other peoples o... 
Which pair of speakers changed your Hifi life?
Altec Valencia (VOTT). It wasn't  audiophile or accurate, but boy was it fun! Wish I still had 'em.

Ditch your USB cable for Toslink? Might surprise you!
OP, I have used the Wireworld Super Nova 7 glass optical, and it sounds great. I use it on my cd player used as a transport. I use a AQ. Coaxial on my streamer. To me, the coax has a tiny bit more sparkle on the treble frequencies, and the glass... 
Denafrips Ares II - Why did you sell?
@ozziegurkan  You should have tried a Denafrips Venus II.  
Why do hipsters prefer analog?
What happened to the  OP?  
Bluesound and BluOS
Radio Paradise is excellent for their music content!  
Best turntable for the buck
@nferre66, I have owned nearly all those tables you mentioned, like you, I have set up tt's since the late sixties so I think I qualify for set up. Your analogy for not liking the Sota makes no sense to me, but to each his own. I've owned Technic...
