        I had a Freya S there before, which is going to a different system. The sound *seems* more open, but it may be cost-driven placebo ;)

        Is this a recent remaster? Where did you get this recording? I am a fan of Reiner/CSO but sometimes the mastering is a little hard panned L-R and brittle sounding.

        I've seen BF live many times, playing different styles, always feels he's recreating a tune from the ground up.

        SilentPC a great option. I built a fanless PC in a regular case using the Nofan CR-80EH with some quiet fans that are basically silent at <400rpm. I'm using the recent Intel temperature throttling to control temps. If there's just music playing I can shut the fans off completely without issue.

        Can’t ask for more. Timbre of a Blackwood Auteur and the soundstage of the EC Af. Sounds like mixing a fantastic whiskey and cigar.
