Have you set up current speakers in new room yet?   What qualities did your previous speakers lack that you are looking for ?     
Cornwall IV vs. Volti Rival, Razz; Razz v. 1, 2, 3 -- what changed?
The Heritage line is still made in the US .   The cabinets are made here, woofer is made my Eminence in KY , mid is made by Celestion for Klipsch.    I've had Forte IV since they came out and they've been great.   I paid $3k plus a pair of H3 I h... 
Your Ultimate Phono Preamp: Which One Would You Choose?
Apt 1 was a great preamp in the day.   I bought one used , it was my first real preamp.   I regret selling that and the Amp 1  
Sonus Faber Question
Big fan of Sonus Faber.   From their modestly priced speakers all the way up the chain they deserve a great amp.    I just gave my brother my Concertos and he is loving them.   My Dad has a pair of Elector Amatar  III and they are pretty amazing ... 
What is your front end ?

Very faint hiss from tweeter
It normal in most cases . Turn the Amp on without the preamp.   Still there?  Normal to some degree, depending on speaker.   Try to make sure interconnects and speaker wires are apart and also not intertwined with AC or ethernet.  Still exist?  T... 
Looking for a streaming DAC around 4k
I like Aurender , products are built like a tank and they have excellent support.   My Dad has the A6 Master. and he loves it.   Sounds excellent with his McIntosh amp's DAC.    Personally I would spend that money on a stand alone DAC if you lik... 
I have always stretched the budget a little when choosing a preamp.   Choose the right one and you won't feel the need to upgrade for a while.       
If you want a tube preamp that will elevate your system to next level check out the Zesto Leto Ultra II preamp that TMR has used.    I had the original Zesto Leto and it was amazing.  I regret selling it.
