Solo streamer
Good choice! I also have an N200. I was tired of the constant upgrade game and wanted to get more of an end game streamer. I didn't care about the OCXO of the N20 since it wouldn't benefit me. I only stream USB.  
Preamp or DAC
I have a similar type of system. Coda #8 amp, Holo Audio May KTE DAC, Holo Audio Serene KTE preamp and Aurender N200. I also have dual REL subs. I ordered a new BAT VK-80 tube preamp a few days ago. I’m also trying to integrate some tubes into my ... 
Vibration Control
I saw a demo at AXPONA years ago with a company selling antivibration products and platforms. They had an A/B switch of some kind hooked up that let you do comparisons. This was not a demo of turntables. I was shocked that I did actually hear a di... 
A Better Way to Buy Gear - Help Needed
I would NEVER do PayPal Friends and Family with an unknown person! Even if it was someone I know I would have to trust them. You are on the losing side if anything goes wrong, and the protection is all one-sided.  
Racks, equipment and footers
Very happy with my Quadraspire SV2T rack.  
The new Coda S5.5 amplifier: It's a "Petite Beast"!
@aolmrd1241 I agree with you. I'm pretty sure colors aren't patented. It might not have been a threat and may just have been a friendly request, I'm not sure of those details.   
The new Coda S5.5 amplifier: It's a "Petite Beast"!
@yyzsantabarbara As you know I have the #8 with the LRS+ and they sound amazing. Funny story, when I was at AXPONA this year, I noticed one of the rooms had the #8 and #16 amps with some electrostatic speakers. The #8 they were using had GREEN fro... 
Seeking Bookshelf Recommendations
@bubinga I've never heard of REL T10X. I have dual T/9X. Are those an older model?  
If you have a nice system why do you really need room treatments?
@jperry Look at this as an opportunity to educate people and don't assume everyone is a longtime seasoned audiophile. If the person is just trolling and has a history of that in these forums that's a different story!  
Axpona 2024 who is going and why?
@noromance The last two years I stayed at the Hyatt Regency. This year for some reason they wouldn't accept Hyatt points for their rooms, so I decided to stay at the Hyatt Place that is only about a block away from the Regency. I book these reserv... 
Axpona 2024 who is going and why?
I'm flying in tomorrow. Just got back from Hawaii last night so I have a fast turn-around. This will be my 3rd year straight at attending this show. I'm on a hunt for new speakers and possibly a tube preamp. Some rooms I'm interested in attending ... 
The Music Room
I've bought NEW from TMR and they are a good company especially if you are in the market for used gear. I have some gear to sell but with them charging a 35% consignment fee there is no way I will sell that low. To each his own, I guess.  
The Music Room
I like TMR and have purchased new gear from them but the prices they give you for your gear seem really low. I will sell privately first, and they would be a last resort for me.

@bob0398 Did you look at the date on these posts? 17 years old!  
The Psychology of Constant (Equipment) Change
I know people who change out equipment more than I change my socks! I can't even imagine the losses they have in reselling this equipment. If I was only wealthy!
