I still find it amazing how a little smartphone microphone can pick up and record enough info that we can get a glimpse into the magic of many systems through a YouTube video! How is it that we spend hundreds of thousands?
Maybe you have it right Bob, get the right speakers, a simple source, and all the music you want via streaming and just sit back and enjoy. Having heard the Diesis, this horn/open-baffle approach does maybe change the game a little?
Etsuro Gold, LFD phono cable, CS Port phono, AMG “turbo” tonearm... a combo that has completely changed my system. I continue to be amazed what I am hearing.

Just f’n amazing — my buddies are leaving the room shaking their heads at the transformation.
My dCS Rossini is currently whimpering—lonely, and dejected.
