Well, now I feel better.... :(

So, what do you think about pairing this DAC with two st10ms?  I can't hide the cost of two Evolution ones, nor justify them with KEF R900’s.

It is hard to get any better than this DAC, and ST-10M are very good, next to Evolution One.  Definitely works well.
Evolution DAC and STA-9 would not be a good match since STA-9 is warmer and not quite in the same level as the Evolution series.

That would be a wonderful idea (pair of ST10M), but if you can find buyers for the Kinki and Rotel, I think we could possibly get you into the EVO ONES.

I hope you can pull it off as I have an ST-10 and the Kinki.

Me, too. If I get caught, I’m sunk. But, it is said confession is good for the soul. I’ll tell you the Evolution DAC is so good as a preamp it is shocking. It’s too bad the Kinki doesn’t let you bypass the preamp. But, I’d probably go all Nuprime anyway.

So, now, how to sell a Rotel RC 1590, RB 1590, RCD 1572 and a Kinki EX M1? :duh:

Don't know about the Rotel gear but the Kinki should be easy.

I think I'd list the Rotel gear first as a package deal here, A'gon and US Audiomart and break it up if you have to and then sell the Kinki after you get the new amps from John.  The Kinki is in a price range used where there should be a number of people that just want to try it not knowing how good it really is.  Mine goes into service when the temperature in North Florida really climbs up to the mid-90's and the heat from the BHK gets to be too much.

My Innuos Zen Mini should be here late next week, and I’ll finish the review. Mqa is one of the reasons I bought this DAC.
