    What do you use the CIAudio power supply on? I bought mine for the Wadia 170 iTransport, and it really did make the backgound quieter, and the sound clearer over the wall wart supply. When I upgraded to the 171 iTransport I did not even try the new, improved wall wart, and kept the CIAudio.

    Steve, your rig has always looked super clean and well thought out. Now, with the Harbeths in place I'm sure it sounds as good as it looks. N'joy

    Those Harbeths are some "classy" speakers! They look great! Love the stands too! As Mike says above, a nice clean look.

    Not ONE room in my entire house is that clean and so well appointed!

    Enjoy!
