Very nice! I love the McIntosh stuff and also Nakamichi... haven't seen that name in a while. I remember one that would physically remove the cassette, reverse it, and then back into the mount as a form of auto reverse. They always said it sounded better this way. I'm not sure but it was cool!

Either the Apple TV or Roku is going once we know about ATV5 soon. Hope to keep the Apple and toss the Roku if Apple does uhd hdr and all that.

Just cut cable this week. Pulling my TiVo bolt tonight to sell it. Using a Tablo Dual and DirecTV Now for broadcast stuff on the streamer boxes.

I want a K setup to negate the Oppo and the Syno setup. Replace all the locally stored content with the K store and not use discs any more as well.

Thanks Jerry.
The Nakamichi Dragon is the one that flipped the tape.
Mines a predecessor to it.

I've just added the new Esoteric N01 network audio player and Esoteric G02X master clock to my collection. I have my Kaleidescape M700 hooked up to the N01/G02X, it's the best sounding DAC I have heard at any price.

The N01 supports DSD512 (22.5 Mhz, Octuple-rate) on its USB input. I've been hunting through the usual sources looking for any DSD512 content, can't find any. This thing sounds stunning with 44.1/16 bit PCM content, I'm salivating at the prospect of finding something in DSD512.
