How good is Aesthetix audio?
It wasn't available at the time, and I returned it for other reasons, unfortunately.   
Streamer software, what do you use?
Euphony Stylus   
Streamer Selection - Thoughts Requested Please!
Euphony Stylus, either as a standalone OS, or Summus 4C/2C server/endpoint.  
How good is Aesthetix audio?
Well, having replaced the tubes with nothing too fancy, and just on initial listening without them having burned in, we've gone from the worst my speakers have sounded to the best they've ever sounded. At least everybody wasn't lying - this is qu... 
How good is Aesthetix audio?
I just got myself a used Mimas with the optional DAC and phono modules this weekend (replacing a W4S 10th DAC & a Black Ice F360 preamp), and I've either screwed up royally, or there's something I need to tweak.  But, my speakers (Acoustic En... 
The Snob Appeal Premium

Music Server Advice
Trial the Euphony Stylus software. Then, once you hear it's in a class of its own, buy a Summus from Euphony or a ridiculously cheap used Pink Faun. Or, repurpose your NUC, get another, and run Stylus and its endpoint in a dual pc set-up.  
What is the VERY BEST CD album you've ever heard?

Does brand aftercare for used gear make sense?
You're missing my point.  I'm referring to the age old rule in marketing about it being much easier to sell to an existing customer.  In both these instances the brands wouldn't be in my future consideration set - and the products are very good.  
I feel bad for Generation X and The Millennial's
Top trolling. Proof, if ever it were needed, that look-back bore Boomer audiophiles know nothing about music.  The Beatles only became interesting once they retired and became a studio band. But do tell us how Help! is better in mono.
