  1. I don't think so. He said he's not new to audio. As long has he has the budget there's no reason to go through the entry-level motions just to step up to mid-range gear 6 months later. $4-$6k isn't a massive sum of money when it comes to this stuff.
  2. Not a vinyl related purchase, but I recently picked up an Apple TV 4k to go with the Samsung 4k HDR set I bought last fall. At time of purchase, I didn't even know that Apple was giving out freebee 4k versions of any movie you currently have in your library (most of mine were just from free digital download codes) so that was a really nice bonus. Over the weekend I watched Deadpool, The Martian, and Stranger Things Season 2 in 4k HDR and have to admit that it REALLY takes some getting used to. Instead of watching a movie, it's just like watching people walking around. EDIT: I actually fixed this by turning off Auto Motion. Either this wasn't kicking in regular HD content or it wasn't as noticeable.
  3. looks like it's time to move.
  4. Orbit Basic vs. Plus

    If you’ve come here lookin for somebody to talk you out of spending more money on your setup, you have come to the wrong place, buster.
  5. Nice score. I see these things for $200+ on CraigsList all the time.
  6. likely cost more to repair than its worth.
  7. The new version on the Magni is out so you can get the Schiit Magni 2 Uber for $79 (normally $149) or the standard version for $59 (normally $99). The Uber has the super handy (preamp?) outputs to chain your headphone amp with some desktop speakers etc. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00SCBX6FA/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?tag=slicinc-20&ascsubtag=fe2c5440b39911e7a794e2ff9c0aef190INT&smid=A2MQBWZ25GS6JU&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00SCBKPW2/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?tag=slicinc-20&ascsubtag=47d6e646b39a11e7a4899a5345c674ba0INT&smid=A2MQBWZ25GS6JU&psc=1

  11. Maybe you don't have nearly enough. It's obviously not an earth-shattering life hack, but it's fun to goof around with these platforms and invent stuff.
  12. Charlie don't camp, but I do want one of those things.
  13. I read some speculation that it is supposed to fall in the $500-$800 range but I'm not sure that's based on anything other than an offhand comment from one of the Schiit guys.

  15. Monoprice is also making waves in the "budget" audio market with their Monolith series. Including their positively reviewed 2/3/5/7 channel amps designed by ATI. https://www.monoprice.com/pages/monolith
