    I'm drunk and listening to Dave Mason. I love that guy. I guess I'm showing my age.

    First of all when you are drunk never get on eBay. You will click to buy everything.

    Secondly, stereo tube amps are very high current. My PL will drive even Martin Logans. I heard a Luxman L-550A ii 25w class A drive a monster pair of white speakers. It's tsunami bass and a moving experience.

    Sorry, no ebay.
    I have dealt with this dude for at least 30 years.

    We are all showing our age. This love for music and nice gear. It's a sign of aging like fine wine. :)

    My daughter just told me we're going to a Stevie Nicks concert in November 2017. That's better than any sound system.

    I am pleasantly surprised at how good the DAC component in my Auralic Aries Mini sounds. It uses a ESS Sabre 90182KM chip. The Mini supports all your usual file formats (AAC, AIFF, ALAC, APE, DIFF, DSF, FLAC, MP3, OGG, WAV, WV and WMA) as well as PCM resolutions up to 32-bit/384kHz and DSD to DSD256.

    Clarity in the upper frequencies is very good indeed and really nicely detailed and open, the midrange showed strong vocal presence and clarity of tone, bass lines are punchy and detailed.

    It looks like my Yggdrasil can go back to the study for DAC duties with Ragnarok and Euforia.... and eventually Glenn's OTL amp.

    Spoke too soon. Having gotten used to Yggy, the ESS Sabre chip sounds too sharp at the high frequencies for my ears. Listening to 'November Rain' by Guns & Roses now and I could do with a little dialing down of the treble. :ksc75smile:

    Indeed that's interesting how DS / Sabre chips can have your mind lured by their sound, as if nothing's awry, only to have an R2R DAC thrill you even more. Although IMO occasionally for certain genres like some electronic music, a DS DAC can be preferable for a more 'electronic' sound. And now some DACs use dual sabre chips in parallel which by all accounts to me sounds twice as good as one. Then there's the Hugo 2, of which the staff members said is somehow better than R2R technology (their words not mine, but I would like to test their theory).
