Possible new preamp
I am probably going to get the Parasound Halo 5 preamp. It is solid state,
and listed in Stereophile's current "B" list. The list price is $1095. I'm also looking at the Wharfedale Jade
3 speaker, $1499. Probably gonna get both.

New Audio Interconnects
12:38 pm cst
Two or so weeks ago I upgraded my interconnects from the Audioquest Diamondback
to the Audioquest King Cobra. There is a difference, and it's is well worth the money I paid. I actually paid the same as
I did for the Diamondbacks five years ago, since the King Cobra is now out of production. They cost $134 each for two one
meter cables. I also changed the amp power cord to the Audioquest NRG 2. The Cobra has especially better bass, and inproved
definition across the spectrum. The high frequencies have a sparkle I was missing before. Damn good cable!
