You should get the Aelius 2 if you already have the the PST 100 mk2, great combo that i had on demo at home.
Regarding my search, favorite tube pre-power is Aries Cerat and for SS CH Precision.
Favorite DAC Totaldac top of the line.
I'd like to have feedbacks from users of Audience top of the line cables, interconnects, speaker cables and power chords.
They seem to have some of the best performance/price ratio on the market.
Please share your experience compared to other cable manufacturers.
I also wanted to know why you diden't purchase M1 monos and chose to have L1 monos and C1.1 monos instead ?
Is it that you don't need the power of M1 monos for your Göbel speakers ?
Also how big of a difference is there between L1+X1 vs L1 monos ?
Elliot i have a question about CH upgrade path.
As you are aware most of us might not have de funds to purchase a maxed out CH system like the one you showed at RMAF.
But since you can start small a grow little by little let's say you can start by purchasing L1+X1+M1.1stereo the first year.
Tbzc thanks very much, very informative:)

TAD Ref One can be found for 30K used from time to time, that could be a good option.
I have to find a way to audition the Kawero one day because i'm not yet familiar with them.
I know a dealer that had them on loan for a year but he doesn't have them anymore:(
Can some of you give me a good description of the Mephisto sound, is it still up there compared to some more recent SS SOTA amps ?
What is the power consumption and how does the amp age within a decade or more, any issues to be aware of about this amp ?
I have only heard the Antileon Evo and...
I have a question regarding d1-driver, is there an audible difference in using let's say a Twelve mk2 with d1-driver and going direct to CH M1.1 stereo amp as opposed to using CH L1+X1 in the chain instead of the d1-driver ?
Other example d1-direct driving Gryphon Mephisto stereo instead of the...
I would still think it would be cheaper to construct a dedicated room in an existing basement compared to expending the house with the construction of a new room.
One other solution would be to use an existing garage next to the house to build the listening room.
I have been visiting houses with...
tmallin thanks for your input.
I have visited a house that has 2 basements and one of them is 90 m2 and 12 foot ceiling.
If i recall it would be possible to have 15 feet wide even though there are some vertical pillars.
The bigger basement was used to store 2 trucks that's why there is 12 foot...
