OPPO 83 and Benchmark DAC 1
I think I will get Benchmark DAC1. What is the best way to connect Oppo 83 to DAC1 to my MFA Magus (stereo preamp with RCA inputs only)? Mjcmt: what kind of cables and namebrand would you recommend?Secondly, does it mean that my SACD playing on Op... 
OPPO 83 and Benchmark DAC 1
Oppo 83 is only a $500 player, I would not expect it to perform anything above that. Its video is excellent, for that price, esp. bluray. Its SACD is very good, but its CD is below average (again, within that price expectation). My question is whe...

I like Cary better than Anthem.

Sun Audio 2A3 used for less than USD1000, I hope. Then CD player or Ipod direct in to Sun Audio driving Fostex. Good luck. 
Merry Christmas Everyone
Blessed Christmas and Wonderful New Year to all Audiogoners and the Audiogon staff! I have benefited so much in my music listening because of people like you. Many more years to come ... I am sure.

Which is the better Subwoofer?

What music would you like at your funeral?
Do I Have A Choice? 
best indoor antenna for FM reception?
I use the Fanfare 2 (similar to ST-2 which I used to have) and notice placed outside is much better than used inside my home. I am in Chicago suburb. 
Cary SLP 98 Tubes
It looks like your amp takes common tubes: 4 ea - 6SN7 Line Stage; 2 ea - 12AX7 Phono Stage; 2 ea - 12AU7 Phono buffer. Does your manual say differently? Try either Sylvania or RCA, NOS 6sn7; and Telefunken NOS 12Ax7 and 12Au7.
