  1. Take a look at Masterbuilt smokers. https://www.masterbuilt.com/collections/smokers I have one at my rural getaway and it's simple, smokes very well, and provides consistent results. However, this is the best IMO
  2. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0796KGVXT/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I have both this and a Niles switcher, this seems better IMO.
  3. I did initially use passive crossovers but I went active a while ago, the only speakers in my all QP theater that still use passives are the rears. Complex for sure but totally worth it. The guy who built the QP and then complained about vibrations is full of it IMO. No weird vibrations in mine, but they are well assemble using good 3/4 birch plywood, and I am not playing them at ear damaging levels.
  4. I have the Q80R which is similar. So far its a great TV with an excellent picture and very good aps built in so no need for a Roku. I opted for the Samsung over the LG OLEDs because of their anti reflective screen since the TV lives in a bright room. No regrets.
  5. Works well for me. All of my CDs are ripped (FLAC) and stored on a desktop, then backed up to a NAS. I have 5 different systems that use desktops running JRiver to stream from the NAS.. A couple use Integra DHC-80.3 pre-pros, one a Yamaha A-5200 pre-pro, the other two misc. lower end dacs. I can't come up with a compelling reason to do it any other way. Retired desktops do a stellar job in this capacity.
  6. I actually don’t know. I used the power cord from the previous amp and chucked the factory one in my box of misc. cords. All I know is that is black. How’s that for absolutely no help.😳
  7. A single Aegir sounds stunning on my modded K-horns, best amp I have owned by a long shot. You would probably need two for something like a Cornwall.
  8. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0122SZIYU/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Fit pretty much and size speaker wire, however screw not crimp, and will also take banana plugs. Nicely made too.
  9. No, I have a SS Integra DHC-80.3 preamp. Great DAC built in and decodes SACDs. I thought about the Freya but the Integra/Aegir combo sounds very very good.
  10. I am selling a pair of JJ 2A3-40 tubes. Purchased new in Sept., they have at most 10 hours of use. I am probably selling the amp so there is no reason to keep these. $150 shipped OBO
  11. Pioneer PLX-1000, A bit above your budget but this is a great time of year for a sale. Built like a tank, very positive reviews, and sound very good too IMO. https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/PLX1000--pioneer-dj-plx-1000-professional-turntable?utm_source=google&utm_medium=organicpla
  12. Quick update on the Aegir. After having a few days to listen I have found this to be huge upgrade to my K-horn system. The sound is better than I ever thought possible, imaging is superb. Best amp investment I have made, and no where near the most expensive. A winner for sure for efficient speakers IMO.
  13. In the last few months I have brought home a pair of Heresys, a pair of Corwalls, a single Forte, the Aegir, and just today a Denon tape deck. I think my wife (an extremely tolerant person) might not approve any more fun stuff until after the holidays. I would like to try one however... 🤪
