  1. How would these compare with the sound of a Forte IV
  2. Again Tidal is not the end all for high quality audio streaming. Do the Fives have “no way” to bypass their built in DAC. I have KEF LS 50 wireless speakers with built in dacs and they sound amazing but I don’t know if the dacs can be bypassed
  3. I don’t have the Fives but I have a high end tube integrated and Forte IVs and I tried MQA streaming thru my Node 2i and could not tell a difference in sound quality of MQA files versus CD quality files. I think MQA is mostly just marketing hype. Most of the music I listen to does not even come in MQA versions. I ended up dropping Tidal and now use Amazon HD and a Denefrips DAC with the Node 2i and it sounds fantastic and more analogue than Tidal sounded thru the Node 2i with its built in MQA capable Dacs.

    I use good quality speaker cables that terminate on both ends with banana plugs and they are a clean solution and they are not connected or disconnected for years on end.
  5. I use banana plug wires for all my speaker connectors and they work great for me.

    Sorry I meant 1974 lol my mom had a straight 6 Bavaria- We loved that car
  7. I know Primaluna is made in China but the build quality is fantastic. The Ayons look to have impeccable build quality and are quite beautiful. I am sure they sound stellar. I wish I could own many different types of audio gear.. Decware looks fantastic as does the Inspire Line by Dennis Haddand the line Magnetic amps look interesting, too and some of the Mac gear is probably as good as it gets!

    I have had many cars that I have enjoyed driving. My first car was a 1960 Triumph TR3 and it drove like a tractor but you could just walk over the low doors without opening them up. - So Cool - after that I had one of the first Mazda Wankels and then my dream car the 2004 BMW 2002 - I loved that car so much --- but now I am old and have much more $$$ than back then and I drive the best car I have ever owned - 2017 Corvette GrandSport - whooohooo - great fun car to drive up and down Pacific Coast Highway with the top off.
  9. After over 38,0000 posts to an Internet forum can one actually make “yet another” well thought out post? 🤣
  10. Yes the Primaluna EVO 400 has a sub pre out.
  11. HSU comes with a built in Plate Amp Amplifier Power (RMS)2000 W Short Term, 600 W Continuous Hybrid Tuning18 Hz Ported, 22 Hz Ported or Sealed Low End Extension (+/- 2 dB) 17 Hz (1 port open) 22 Hz (2 ports open)
  12. Kevin is a principle in Primaluna. I do not know if he carries the Aton Amp line.
  13. The EVO line replaced the Dialogue line - just all the latest greatest parts in the EVO line so I said sure just give me the EVO lol
