First the speakers came in. Then the preamp. Today the ncore stereo unit arrived. Here is the result.
Compared to what I was using before, and to anything I've actually heard before, all I can say is "Wow." It just plays so effortlessly. Can't turn it up right now as there are people asleep but tomorrow morning it's on.
I will probably make a new post or add some more once I rearrange and it's all finalized. Still haven't got a DAC, just using the computers soundcard.
