  1. No I agree with you. The sound of the Marantz dac is warmer and smoother.
  2. I personally really like the Marantz DACs and sound. I would say not to add anything unless you are feeling you are missing something. I have marantz sr7012 in living room system and love the sound. My dedicated listening room I went with Parasound for 2 channel listening. Ive contemplated switching to marantz but am liking the Parasound sound too.
  3. I switched from Tidal to Amazon HD and for 99% of songs I don't notice a difference. I'm running Node2i via optical and rca (so i can switch between Node Dac or my Parasound P6+) I'm running dual jbl 18" bass bins with the jbl 2446h on jbl horns for high frequency (very high sensitivity) and can only tell a difference on very few songs.
  4. Sorry, I had the non HD so that may have been the issue with the minidsp
  5. I'm sorry (not sorry) but after having traveled the upgrade path from minidsp, to behringer, to finally xilica I dont know how anyone talking about making a speaker and audio quality being a factor could recommend the minidsp or behringer as an option at all. The noise floor on those are just too high for high sensitivity speakers
  6. Been looking for one of those....too bad I'm westcoast...glwys it looks super clean
  7. What brand/model is your audio stand please?
  8. I'm looking at the EVO 400 preamp. Looks really promising. I'm gonna go listen to one locally this week or next. Currently running Parasound P6 and very happy but just can't help thinking I'm missing the tube sound....
  9. Check out jbl 2385. Great alternative at a cheaper price and better availabilty
  10. No, I have JBL dual 18's with large 18" jbl horns in a 11x13 room and it sounds awesome. I am using active crossover though...
  11. I have the Rotel RB 1552 MKII like new in box that Im not using up for sale if you are interested. Its in the garage sale section
  12. There's definately a split on people's listening preferences. I've found its either clear clinical (ie emotiva) or warm lush (ie marantz). It really depends on your tastes
  13. What speakers are you using? I always recommend the Marantz line as they always produce excellent results. I've tried emotiva in the past and found them to be bright on Klipsch speakers. If you have standard dome speakers them the emotiva may work for you.
