  1. I run a Benchmark AHB2 stereo mode into a pair of B&W 802d3. The amp does not clip at any listening level I would use. Is there any benefit running a pair of amps mono other than they would play louder than I would ever want to listen?
  2. I enjoy my system. I stream because of the diversity of music available from Qobuz. Stuff I would never listen to because I didn’t know it existed. I am listening to streamed recorded music and it’s enjoyable but it’s not live. I am beginning to think that it’s time to stop looking for something that doesn’t exist, enjoy what I have and search out live performance locally.
  3. Something for a champagne buzz tonight.
  4. Never heard this but I will tonight. Hope this is in the spirit of this thread.
  5. Thanks, found setting in Zone settings in Roon. Works ok. Will check out iTunes
  6. During the day I listen to playlists I make including Christmas Playlist. The variation in volume level is amazing-very soft for some music to threshold of pain on others. Annoying. Old ears find loud music kind of muddy. Roon has some kind of volume thing which I can google and try. At night when I tend to listen to an album or two I can stream directly from Qobuz which I prefer and bypass any signal processing.
  7. Honest to God I don’t know what an Ethernet Switch is. I have Benchmark DAC and Amp and the most important reason I have them is that when I purchased them Benchmark had and probably still has a liberal return policy. I liked what I heard.
  8. At some point isn’t about what you hear? Last week I sat down to listen to Ben Webster and drink a little bourbon. The most relevant measurement I guess was the amount of bourbon in the glass. Do measurements make people want to seek the more perfect? I guess it is about rational decision making but it all seems a little weird to me.
  9. I would so enjoy listening to a live performance. One of my favorites.
  10. Along with a glass of a nice Spanish White, a relaxing evening:
  11. Thank you, a wonderful idea-no World Series tonight.
