  1. I don't think I mentioned my turntable. But since you asked.....VPI Classic 4. > Gold note PH10 pre amp with outboard power supply > Luxman 509X integrated amplifier > Joseph Audio Perspectives / Salk 12in Subs. My Node1 has an upgraded Cullen power cable and is connected to my PS audio Perfect Wave DAC with Coax for streaming. Sounds good to me. Streaming Music is more about discovery than ultimate sound quality.
  2. I think BlueSound is a good product. You can spend mucho $$ and not hear much improvement or you can spend MUCHO MUCHO $$$$$ and hear some improvement. Don't forget all the streaming music is.....well....digital and of vastly different source quality.
  3. I don't see a price. If these are "audiophile grade" then $10 or $20K should do the trick for an average listening room. Not including dry wall and labor.......
  4. The Node is the way to go. I am very satisfied with mine. In fact I have 2 of them!!
  5. At midnight all the agents And the superhuman crew Come out and round up everyone That knows more than they do Then they bring them to the factory Where the heart attack machine Is strapped across their shoulders And then the kerosene Is brought down from the castles By insurance men who go Check to see that nobody is escaping To Desolation Row ~ Desolation Row. B. Dylan
  6. Final episode of BOSCH. (Season 7) "I wonder how all those glass walls reflect sound". Hummm.
  7. You win. I have a fine btl of 2015 Ch. Pavie Macquin to share at the next Covid Free Audio Show.
  8. OK, who wrote the lyric.? "Language is a Virus"? I will buy the winner a drink, when it is safe!!!
  9. BlueSound and Sonos, as stated above, are great!. The best thing about both is that they are easy to use.
  10. Silly Rabbit! Inflation Protected Bonds.......that's the ticket. The inflation monster is coming to get you!!! Thank me later.🎯
  11. Just like many audio enthusiasts without "golden ears" I can't hear any difference between Redbook CDs, Hi Rez SACDs, streaming at "bit perfect" or lossy whatever is on my Node1. I once had a nice class D amp and nice solid state amp and a nice tube amp......all sounded the about the same to me. There is a difference in SQ at certain points in the audio universe and you can develop the skills to hear these differences but you have to work very hard to develop exceptional listening skills....I don't want to work to enjoy music, I want to enjoy music. Unless you have a god given p
  12. Here is the standard for using an acronym: Always spell out the words and then use the initials. This must be done the first time you plan on using the short form. Use the short form in the remainder of the article. EXAMPLE: My personal computer (PC) sucks and should not be used for the reproduction of music. Even common use acronyms should be spelled out, the writer must assume that there are people who are new to the subject matter and need a clear explanation of all terms.

    APPLE

    Oh Boy! How about the time (long ago) Apple "upgraded" OSX and we had no drivers for the W4Sound DAC. (and others) It took months to resolve the driver problem. Hence, my belief that no one at Apple cared remotely about music. Just a bunch of young whippersnappers who listen to music on a cell phone with ear buds. Wouldn't know what a higher end audio system was if it bit them on the arse. Although I do like that they are trying to screw FACEBOOK (AKA: Statan's Representative on Earth (SRoE)). I urge all of you to delete FACEBOOK today.
