thanks for your thoughts....  I've never been happy with file sound, but the Mytech gave me hope and my experience at CAF was an eye opener. I just have no will to spend +$10K on a DAC many of those were $15k to $60K  Have a friend with a Phison PD2 that he wants to send me to audition. May have to just do that. If anyone wants to come by for a listen, you're always welcome!

The Brooklyn is MQA enabled. Not sure about the other(s), but I'm not streaming currently.  Going to try a few different RCAs and see what happens. I bought a ModWright / Pioneer UHD  LX-500 that I'm really enjoying the heck out of. Getting rid of the CD player and having much better sound is pretty cool! Going to be buying a new 4K TV after the first of the year and I'm prepared lol

That's definitely not a "junk" turntable, IMO it's a great table to be rebuilt...IF you can get a hold of that guy.

51 and took good care of himself.   I thought he would outlive me by 20 years.   I'm sure he did too.   You just never know.
