Best DAC’S $5k to $15k
Try and listen to the Aesthetix Romulus (or Pandora) Signature.   
I especially liked the Daedalus room as well (I have older DA-RMa speakers); I agree LTA electronics were superb. Would like it if they produced a DAC that will also DSD (I didn’t have a chance to inquire).   
Pass Labs Int-25 vs Int-30A
Thanks; I appreciate the thoughts.   
Aesthetix Romulus Signature Upgrade Worth the $3,000 ?
As I stated in my first post in this thread, I tend to agree that the cost to upgrade the Romulus to Signature status is on the high side; however I bought my std unit used with the intent to do the upgrade since dsd playback capability was/is ver... 
Aesthetix Romulus Signature Upgrade Worth the $3,000 ?
I have Mullard 10M 12AX7s and also 6JD8's--the 10M's are fantastic tubes but very pricey to get the real deal. I'm currently running Tesla (authentic old stock--beware there are many fakes) 803S's and the Mullard 10M 6JD8's. For my tastes, this is... 
Aesthetix Romulus Signature Upgrade Worth the $3,000 ?
A bit off topic here, but those of you that use a server with Windows OS with your Romulus--what version of the Streamlength driver are you using?  I'm still using the original v126s that I installed when I first got my Romulus, but have lately be... 
High Fidelity Cables CT-1designed by Rick Schultz
I'm curious about the adapters also; I look forward to reports on their impact (especially with non HF cables). 
Electric Interference + Line / Surge Conditioning
I have a similar issue: every time the HVAC system comes on, my pre/pro loses lock on the digital signal it is receiving. Putting a surge protector in front of the pre/pro helps some but the problem still surfaces regularly...I'm thinking I need a... 
Speaker cable suggestions
I urge you to try the Triode Wire Labs speaker cables. I've been through many brands (many much more expensive than the TWL cables), most recently the Jena Labs Twin 19s, Kubala Emotions and the Auditorium A23s. In my setup, none have sounded as g... 
JM Labs Mini Utopia in-wall installation help
That's the problem; I didn't mount them in the wall--I built a 'front' with thee cutout and had them in a cabinet. 
Elrog 300B vs Takatsuki 300B tubes
Thanks Matthias; I'll likely give them a try 😀! My speakers are a pretty benign/relatively flat 6 ohm impedance so I'll definitely try the 4 ohm tap. 
Elrog 300B vs Takatsuki 300B tubes
Matthias (or any others with the knowledge): any insight on how the El Rog 300B works in Audio Note Quest Silver monos? I have the low gain version (6J5 driver rather than 6SN7) but don't know the operating specs (and I'm no expert in these things... 
Elrog 300B vs Takatsuki 300B tubes
I've bought tubes from George at TubesUSA before as well and always received great service. I foolishly decided to try and save a few bucks and buy a pair of 'cosmetically challenged' 300B XLS tubes directly from Jac Music; I wasn't sure re the XL... 
Elrog 300B vs Takatsuki 300B tubes
I have the Takasukis and like them a lot. I paid for a pair of 'cosmetically challenged' EML 300B XLS tubes directly from Jac Music on Feb 15.--he failed to getting around to shipping the tubes for 11 days after that. He also refused to respond to... 
Elrog 300B vs Takatsuki 300B tubes
Charles,Have you tried/heard the Elrogs yet? I am anxious to learn your assessment, as I've valued your input re 300B's. I have a pair of the Takatsuki's (which are just sublime!) and also a pair of SERP's. The SERP's are very good, but for my tas...
