> Another 10K lifestyle game changer for the 1%.
What I like to do is try to find the game changers that are economical. I recently assembled a tube line-stage kit that I feel sounds better than my Pass Labs X1 and it cost a lot less than the X1, too. That's my idea of a game changer! ;-)
Very nice John. I also have hand built amps that were very reasonably priced to obtain. As great as the Devialet sounds, there are some music DVD's I have that sound great with the tube gear.
If you check out the audio sites, one can find used Devialet 200's from 3 to 4K. Considering all it provides, that is pretty reasonable for a top of the line audio setup.
There was a guy on another site who posted that he replaced 25K plus of equipment with a Devialet 200, and it sounds better than his previous equipment.

I might like to build some tube monoblocks. Can you provide a URL for those amps?
Besides the possible addition of tube amplification, I'm pretty much satisfied with the digital capability of my system. I use an Oppo BDP-105D for all digital up through single DSD resolution and I switch to a TASCAM DA-3000 for playing DSD 5.6M.
I think you'd really enjoy building a Raspberry PI streamer for your music. :)
