  1. @PeterSt You and a number of people here are welcome to come by so we can listen to music and have a beer! I might even open a bottle or three of wine and share some nice Scotch if you make the journey to Seattle! But it's the local "microbrews" like this one <https://reubensbrews.com/> that make it worth the trip. Oh wait, we're not "open" yet. LOL (Not that this is funny, read that as a letting-off-stream laugh.) Thanks for posting the pic. Let's see how well I decoded the last post of TANF or whatever it was! hahaha
  2. The lack of photos here, despite my urging Peter to do so, says something about its members, LOL. 😉
  3. Well if anyone feels more voices/votes is more legit, then +1 for power. Paying for quality power has paid enormous emotional sonic dividends over the years. In fact I have considered power the most important factor in my system for a long time, and power especially opened my ears with digital signal quality five or six years ago. YMMV.
  4. "The dogma is strong with that one..." 😉 There's another well-known and very successful audio company that makes great products but eschews commentary on what we as their consumers, hear or don't hear. Just as well, and yet because of how prominent they are, and because of how their demographic is influenced by them, I wish they would "care" about power and cables as much as the more discerning ears here do. Regrettably, we're all simply human and they have their blind spots as we all do. My dogma: Everything counts in large amounts, and clean power uber alles, and YMMV. When I try a Qutest someday, it will be with "audiophile-grade" power. Nothing to fear but hearing itself. 😀
  5. @charlesphoto I sold my recapped CB NAP 250 to a friend to pick up a newer DR for myself, but the CB has "the sound" we love Naim for! (I love my DR, too.) Regarding your cable comment, I just noticed the boys "across the pond" talking about Witch Hat cable's Morgana cable for Naim. They're ex-Naim techs turned Naim cable specialists. Mine aren't here yet so I can't comment on the sound, but they're well regarded, it seems. (And clearly worth taking a flyer on, for me anyway.) Love the old recapped CB sound however! Congrats!
  6. We have many criteria for sound quality. One aspect I've found lowly CDs to beat file-based playback is leading edge dynamics, in my system. Annoying! The one thing I have long and am still currently experiencing is that the power supplies of the digital signal path are critical. Jason and company don't seem to be true believers in the "last mile" of power, unfortunately.
  7. Please don't poke the bears! And BTW at those prices, a huge value. They keep it together from top to bottom (which many cables do not, IME).
  8. https://www.mcssl.com/store/silnoteaudio/bnc-cables Highly recommended.
  9. Sorry - double posted via Classifieds. Please see further details there, and a correction here: USB in only for digital input, not output (only BNC).

  13. I have a LUMIN D2 for sale but I haven’t listed it yet. PM me if interested. It’s in your price range!
  14. Shucks, Alex, this isn't as much fun as reading Jason's chapter after chapter of Herculean code-sauce brewin' feats! 😉 You and John actually might have a similar book to write about hunting PHY noises beneath/between/behind the 1s and 0s, escaping out of USB and into our speakers...
  15. So does comment this imply they could choose to someday employ the base ingredients of their secret USB sauce with direct Ethernet input? (I'd Kickstarter that assuming they can isolate the noise!)
