    OMG - have you seen those Magnepans !?

    Beautiful fit and finish. Best looking Magnepans I've ever seen. Is anyone at Magnepan watching?

    New sound room woes

    I went from an LS27 to a Ref 5SE a few years back. This was a significant step forward in resolution, music presentation and better bottom end. Of course, the current model is the Ref 6 which is a terrific pre.

    My new article on the WAMM Master Chronosonic Demo

    Jim - At AXPONA, Larry’s Paragon team featured the new Momentum HD Pre with the Relentless amps and the Wilson Alexx’s. I spent some time discussing the new HD with Bill McKiegan of D’Agostino. It sounded terrific. Mike PS - I realize this was a different presentation but was addressing Jim’s...

    Lumin X1

    Congrats! The Lumin app is easier but Roon can be more informative and a bit more elegant. In any event, you have choices!

    Lumin X1

    Lumin products do need either a computer in the home running Roon or a Roon Nucleus. Not a big deal as long as the computer is connected to the network. The operation between Roon and Lumin is quite seamless and super easy. PS - While I have Roon setup, I mostly use the Lumin app.

    Lumin X1

    Sujay - I owned a Bryston BDP-2. It was (is) a fine sounding digital music player. However, I was never pleased with the application user interface. Several years ago, I decided to sell the BDP-2 and replaced it with the "all in one" Lumin S1. The S1 sounded better than the Bryston BDP-2 -...

    Magico M3 and M2 construction

    I listened to the M2 multiple times at AXPONA and was very impressed. The CH Precision amps were a very good match for the speaker.

    Are the "Cheaper" MSB models the best digital?

    I had the Premier for a few days at my home. It is a terrific DAC with the renderer. I did not buy it but really liked it a lot.

    Lumin X1 flagship server/dac

    I had the Lumin S1 and recently replaced it with the X1. The X1 has a fuller musical presentation than the S1. It remains very transparent with very good detail and excellent bottom end. And, like other Lumins, it is well made, looks great, extremely easy to setup and use. Lastly, Lumin has...
