    What's Best? The Absolute Sound or today's High End Systems?

    I never said I could not tell the difference between live and recorded. I was addressing the musical enjoyment provided by my system, as well as the ease and convenience factor. I also have to admit, my willingness to purchase $150 seats is limited. Last week, I attended a magnificent piano...

    SOtM sNH-10G Network Switches x2 : The NEW KING of USB/Network Gadget Setup

    This topic being completely over my level, I'm wondering if there is a reasonably priced application in my system that would be worthwhile. I'm using a Roon Nucleus+ through a Lumin X-1 with a Synology NAS all connected via a generic network cable (Cat7, 40' length between the Roon and the...
