RE: PrimaLuna Dialogue vs. Mystere CA-21

You have Audiophilla Nervosa. The cure is to be satisfied with what you own.

Maybe the PrimaLuna is better, maybe it isn't. Either you audition the PrimaLuna and prefer it, or you stick with the excellent Mystere. This is not rocket science.

But, seriously ask yourself why you are considering a change. Both manufacturers have similar philosophies, similar build quality, even similar price points.

One is liked by Stereophile reviewers and loved by Absolute Sound reviewers, and one is liked by Absolute Sound reviewers and loved by Stereophile reviewers. How different do you expect them to be?

If it's about the gear and not the music, you will never be satisfied, which is a bigger problem.
