  1. I’ve never owned any Linn but the times I have demo’ed them, they’ve been fantastic. Happy to see them introducing this line. Looks very exciting!
  2. I loved my MA1 when I had it. What about the newly announced MA3? - looks like a winner to me!
  3. I think you’ll get the most change in the direction you’re looking for by changing your DAC. The Mojo is an impressive device - I had one. The Hugo2 is better if you still want portable. If you want a warmer or less “irritating(?)” sound you might want to move away from Chord, however. They’re very clear and precise but I can’t listen for too long through my Utopias and Hugo2 even on the softest filter.
  4. Very interesting product - I haven’t seen something quite like this before. Thanks for sharing!
  5. My point is that this is solving a problem I simply don’t have. I don’t know anyone else that has a problem that is solved by a $25k 8-input analog preamp. I need a high quality volume control and I have 2 sources. One that is digital and itself has a variety of digital inputs, and my ARC phono pre has 2 inputs. I simply don’t see the value in paying $25k for a volume control and 6-7 extra inputs plus taking up unnecessary rack space when the dollars can be used more wisely somewhere else. The innovation and market catch-up I refer to and suggest to Ayre in my original post
  6. I love Ayre and I particularly enjoy my VX-R/Twenty amp, however for less cost, I decided to pass on the KX-R/Twenty Preamp in favor of upgrading my MSB Premier DAC to an MSB Reference DAC with the optional preamp constant impedance passive volume control. It also includes analog inputs so completely negates the need for an external preamp as my only other source is a turntable. Hoping that Ayre releases some newer and innovative high end components that compete with this or surprise us in other ways. A great volume control is *necessary* but the KX-R/Twenty is 6-7 years old or mor
  7. If you’re thinking of dropping money on a new DAC and want electrical isolation, check out an MSB DAC using their ProUSB interface. https://www.msbtechnology.com/accessories/prousb/
  8. I finally got a BACCH-SP and am loving it. The system was finally updated to support USB output (rather than just analog or SPDIF). If any other owners have tips or tricks they would like to share, please do so!
  9. Got it! I ran across that thread much later - my first intuition was to go to the Networking section and found those two fairly negative threads within the first two pages. I don't have the bandwidth to regularly check the forums and follow the trends (work and life is very busy), so just coming up for air here a bit and to blow some $ on grounding tweaks like the Nordost QKore and I just ordered this unit thanks to your review! With a QKORE coming, my next question is...should I ground the EtherREGEN to it using a spade to the ground terminal? or should I use an RJ45
  10. I have an HS-453DX, Fanless and works great. Running Roon and can stream to the 5 endpoints in my house in group mode, all in sync. Two 12TB drives in it in RAID-0. I back up to another QNAP NAS which is in RAID 5 and has 4 8TB Drives.
  11. I use a NAS/Computer to stream to an Ethernet Renderer on my MSB DAC. I'm very interested in this product and about to pull the trigger.
  12. To add, I would be very interested in objective measurements of these types of devices by a skilled electrical engineer with an oscilloscope or other testing method like that. A network engineer with a command line prompt is not going to be able to show us relevant testing results for the problems that these devices solve.
