Opinions on RENOLABS in Vietnam
This is a good find, OP. I’ve also been interested in reclockers and this seems to be a good option, but I’m even more fascinated by their tube monoblocks - the RA-833s.   
Be Careful With UPS!
Maybe someone with inside knowledge can confirm UPS capability: I had a package listed as delivered but our Ring doorbell confirmed that UPS had never dropped off the package. After navigating the UPS customer service tree it was communicated that... 
Looking for a true upgrade in sound quality
When I was experiencing some “etched sound” when doing a long run of Ethernet direct to my streamer I tried Small Green Computers Fiber Media Converter (FMC) bundle found here. I also inquired the Audiogon community about Network Acoustics Eno Str... 
Opinions on RENOLABS in Vietnam
Out of curiosity how did you come across Reno Labs? This is the first time hearing of them, but their products look interesting and their website is well done. Not that it’s a big deal, but some pictures of their DAC with the screen turned on woul... 
Sunfire Amp joule meter
But isn’t it a weird that the meter stays in the same position when also off? Or did I interpret that incorrectly? I don’t remember my Cinema Grand doing that.  
Noob question about streaming . . .
I have the AV7704 and it’s a solid HT preamp. I would definitely try the Wiim Pro and Tidal to determine whether it’s worth the difference. Personally, I typically utilize Spotify Connect from either my iPad or phone with this preamp and it sounds... 
Music Hall Maverick SACD Player repair
I had a similar issues with my Maverick which has been sitting in the closet for I don’t know how many years. There may be an option down here in AZ, but I’m not too confident. Regardless, this post gave me motivation to try and get this component... 
Roon vs OS and Native Players - Impact on SQ?
@mclinnguy Antipodes could definitely be included in that list. In all honesty, they were simply excluded since I’m not too familiar with their offerings, but I have heard wonderful things from owners on this forum.  
Roon vs OS and Native Players - Impact on SQ?
It looks like certain Aurender models are now Roon Ready and can be enabled for use with video and written instructions here. I would be really curious to hear from the Aurender Roon users. Ready mode is a free upgrade available on all Intel-bas... 
Had anyone listened to Ken Fritz's system in person?
@shkong78 you missed it. His son had created a post here on Audiogon in November. I can only imagine what it sounded like. https://forum.audiogon.com/discussions/ken-fritz-stereo-system-auction-is-live?highlight=Ken%2BFritz  
Are You a Swifty?
You have to try new things all the time if you're really into music IMO, or you just silo yourself into a comfortable, but eventually boring and too safe little world.   I stumbled upon an interesting article a few months back that may explain ... 
NAD C658 upgrade -> Auralic Altair G1.1,... ?
Correct me if I’m wrong, but that conversion to US dollar would be around $3,251. It may help to know if you’d be open to the used market. I have no experience with Auralic and can’t comment on whether a G1.2 is planned. I had owned the NAD C658 ... 
Roon Aquisition: Will This Help Or Hamper?
It’s been a couple of months since the acquisition. What are people’s thoughts so far? Obvious and not so obvious changes: - Nucleus Titan and Nucleus One - Interface seems a little bit snappier and responsive (at least for me) - Requesting fee... 
Are You a Swifty?
she seems to be a generous and genuinely good-hearted human being who puts on a great concert and as far as I can tell deserves her success.  If there were more people like her the world would be a much better place.   Well said and completely ...
