  1. Now we're talkin.....but is that all you got? [emoji39] Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  2. Yeah, too many variables. You just gotta experiment with your particular combination of sub, speakers, room and 'your' ears. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  3. I finally got Qobuz to work through the Bluos app. Not sure what happened and it's almost certainly a fault on my part but sure seemed fishy.... It was kinda bugging me because I've read so many times that Qobuz gets the nod when it comes to sound quality. Well now I can say that I definitely agree with that so I signed up with Qobuz and dropped Tidal. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

  9. How does this sub compare to the Tuba subs? (Bill Fitzmaurice) Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  10. I use those on my Scott tube integrateds. They work good. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  11. Yeah the Bears started out pretty good but even with five wins they really weren't that good. Now they're just getting worse. Been a Bear fan my whole life this is getting very frustrating. Ya know what I mean? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  12. I was seriously considering a Freya+ but then a friend offered to let me borrow his Saga+. He said he preferred it with the tube buffer engaged but when I first got it from him I liked it better passive. The more I listened to it in my system, the more I liked it so I ordered one. Then I proceeded to order a bunch of 6SN7's. I found that a lot of them were a little hot in the treble. The Tung-Sol was even a little grainy but in general the differences between tubes was subtle yet noticeable. Raytheon was the winner for me until I found the Mullard 6SN7. It came close to the sound I get from my Mullard 12AX7's. This whole experience rolling tubes in the Saga was reminiscent of when I was rolling tubes in my Jolida JD100 tube cd player years ago. Every different tube rolled was a minimal difference in sound barely detectable but when I rolled in the right tube (which also happened to be a Mullard) it just clicked and I knew that was the right tube. Luckily the 6SN7's are pretty affordable as far as tubes go and yet again, I found that NOS tubes rule. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk

  15. Me too. Spotify over the years has been so reliable it's scary. Tidal has come a long way and I like it because the sq is better than Spotify but if it came down to one service that I had to keep, it would be Spotify. Hands down. It's not cd quality or hi-rez but I still think it sounds damn good. It just seems that from what I read, Qobuz gets the nod when it comes to sound quality. I first tried Qobuz on my desktop last year on my Windows 10 laptop. That experience as well as now trying to get it to work through the Node 2i has been a nightmare. I do remember the sq being decent but it was so farked up I cancelled it. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
