    What was your best (and worst) audio purchase for the dollar?

    Best: Marantz CD-63SE CD Player… can still remember the genuine excitement and joy this thing gave (was my 1st hifi, up from a boom box). Worst: Auralic Aries Femto… paid £650 thinking It was a bargain (£1500 new) - ended up getting chucked in the bin when the repair costs for a known design...

    Did You Buy Based On Amir's Review?

    I confess, the Topping D90SE was a purchase heavily influenced by the testing/review on here (and an eBay bargain price too!).

    Dan Clark Stealth Review (State of the Art Headphone)

    +1 on thinking it looks like something a gamer would have… lol. On a more serious note, great to see that this is pushing the limits of what state of the art headphones can achieve - Well done to the manufacturer for putting the effort in to achieve this. Differentiation at this level can only...

    B&W 800 D3 vs KEF Blade. Let's discuss.

    Maybe… but the Dali Fazon F5‘s are made from die-cast aluminium and perform very well indeed.

    What is causing a "pop" through my speakers?

    Sorry to hear you had no luck with this either. What I do know is that I have switched out the Trigon Exxceed for both a Primare i22 and an i35 and have never had the issue reoccur. With this in mind, I put it down to the Trigon Exxceed having an issue. What prompted my question was the...

    What is causing a "pop" through my speakers?

    Would be interested in whether you reached an answer to this. I also have an Innuos Zen Mini Mk III + LPSU and was experiencing a similar issue/symptoms (in my case have a Chord Qutest in between the Zen Mini and a Trigon Exxceed).

    Innuos PhoenixNET

    Originally opened this thread, somewhat tongue-in-cheek, to highlight the craziness in the marketing of such a product - as someone who has been in the networking industry for > 20years, this hits a bit harder and closer to home. Alas, it also seems to have attracted trolls, therefore hopefully...

    Innuos PhoenixNET

    A brand new "Audiophile-Grade" network switch. Seems like good value for money at only 3499 USD... worth picking one up. :)-))?

    Auralic Aries Femto - Stuck on Starting - Spares/repair only

    Have an Auralic Aries Femto that has the "stuck on starting" issue (never boots all the way through to becoming operational). If someone might have the time/ability to get it working again, happy to let it go for a reasonable offer. Note, would have to sell this as spares/repair only given...

    Why do people like/use Roon?

    Am glad that I am not the only one that is a bit indifferent to Roon. I get that it costs a lot to build and run a service, particularly one that fulfils a particular niche, but for the money I struggle to realise the value compared to native streaming services combined with the functionality in...
