    FWIW, I've also had great luck with a SPDIF instead of USB (DAC) interface. Even better, I can compare CD/DVD vs. FLAC (from an audio server) files via the same DAC (receiver/amp). If you want to...

    First off, I've had Netflix STREAMING for years and think it's a pretty good value (boosted by their recent original series additions). I dropped the DVD portion of Netflix in favor of RedBox rentals...

    Totally agree! I'm in the middle of a 'CD ripping' project to go along with a (low cost) media server I've set-up, and see no value in playback beyond the original/native format (16-bits, 44.1 kHz)....

    This might help both of you: I have a pair of M4's with peerless tweets I purchased in 1981 (very sure about that). I believe these were the only version of Monitor 4 that had peerless tweets (and...

    It's been said just about as many ways as possible, but the way you get the (digital) audio TO the amplifier (and/or DACs) is a big part of the equation. I opted for an (older) PCMCIA/bus based...

    WOMEN. I agree it will be hard to top, but the writer/director combo is obviously talented and they've already said they're thinking about something similar featuring 2 women in the lead roles.

    Good thing I didn't read this until AFTER I had watched the last couple of episodes. Ever heard of the phrase "spoiler alert"?

    I was such a Steely Dan freak in high school they called me "Stanley Dan" (and I'm a jazz lover). I have that gatefold cover posted above nailed (opened) to a crate of LP's I've had for decades. For...

    I use EAC and rip to FLAC; it also creates WAV files (by default) which you can then convert to anything else you want (like MP3).

    I'm still confused (and not familiar with the Essence Audio HDACC): are you sending digital (SPDIF) out to your pre/amp via USB or are you sending an ANALOG out via USB DAC? I can't see where a $200...

    You've already investigated areas that I wouldn't have thought of (at least in a short period of time)! It's obvious there's some sort of EMI issue going on if the Toslink interface is working (I use...

    I chose option #2 (last year) and don't regret it; even if you could determine the (current) inductor values, the large one is a PITA to replace--and they don't "degrade" like resistors and (mostly)...

    If you really want SACD capability, your best bet at this point is probably Oppo; that will (obviously) cover you on the video side as well.
