Paid for an NAD AM230 audio module to upgrade my NAD T758 to be a full "v3" version of the receiver. Brought my T758 to the dealer to leave it for them to do the installation, and plans to pick it up next weekend. (I have a couple other options for movies & music while it's out.)

Turns out they did the installation while I waited and listened to a $3300 Naim Uniti Atom make a pair of KEF Q750 speakers sound like $5000 speakers and not the $1500 pair they are.

Tomorrow when there's light I'll hook it all up.

EDIT: I figured in the downtime I'd start playing with the Dirac LE on my wife's laptop PC, as that's what I'll be using tomorrow to set it up. First thing it does is go looking for the device (in my case, the T758) so I did connect it all up and turned it on. To my surprise, all the settings I had on it had been preserved. I could start the Dirac LE calibration with the supplied better mic, but haven't yet figured out how to upgrade to the full Dirac Live. Tomorrow is a better day for that, but looks like I'll get there fairly painlessly.

BD+2CD set. Live performance of the show I saw earlier in the year. Have not bought anything off Amazon in a while so I had quite a bit of points built up so it was "free".

I was listening to that via Tidal HiFi "Masters" yesterday. Incredible! Love it. I will probably order it on Amazon so I can own it and play the video.

It was a great tour. Visually, some nice things done with the set for a few tracks. I really liked this album too, but the show was a good mix of everything.

I finally got my Cyrus CDt to complete my desk top system in my office. I ordered this thing the last week of August and finally got it tonight. Worth the wait. I also purchased an Isotek power conditioner, Wireworld Aurora 7 power cables, and a Straight Wire Mega-Link digital coaxial cable. To the right is a Marantz HD DAC-1 headphone amp/DAC. The Beyerdynamic T1 headphones I'm wearing. My Oppo PM-2's are on a shelf above the monitor.

New power conditioner and power cords make the Marantz sound like a whole new piece of equipment. Yeah, I'm just reveling in my expectation bias.

So far I really like the ecobee 4. The Alexa integration is pretty much useless as it seems it has to be awake and you have to be standing right in front. Not an issue, but kind of annoying.

As for the remote sensors, they work great. I'm very surprised how even the temp is now. My kids rooms are always too hot/cold just like my bedroom and this has totally solved that problem. The hot/cold set points work flawlessly.
Ecobee 4 with 2 sensors is now on limited time sale at Costco for $180

Trying to move my control system fully to IP. Bummer is that both JVC and Oppo don't seem to play nice. So I picked up one of these to be able to use RS232 for those two.



Been playing with iRule. No Alexa integration which is a bummer but a great interface to build your system.
Not sure how comfortable are you with Python, but with help of internet you could make it work with Alexa

Where did you get it? How much did it cost?

I have been looking to get a pair of that exact same throne! I like it because it has independent adjustable foot rest and back/viewing angle!
Got it at Ashley's for about 750.00. They also had several other chairs with the adjustable head rest in different styles.
