Jazzbo, where do you go for reliable recommendations regarding system upgrades?  Which sources do you trust?

I pretty much have spent thirty years developing systems at home and currently my own intuition is instrumental in guiding me to incremental changes. I've used Decware components for the most part for pre- and amplification and speakers, and their forums and the friendships I have made with members and owners there and the builder have been influential in the directions I choose which often have a lot to do with tube substitutions and gain experimentation. And having Decware components have shown me that high quality sources are beneficial and over a decade ago PS Audio showed me their mettle in that regard after quite a journey trying digital sources and I have followed their product line development for improvements.

I could go on but audiophile talk here usually gets met with derision or distaste or insult and ridicule and I'll just say no more right now. ;) Tired of that sort of stuff.

yep, we audiophiles should organize ourself, I mean mocking an overweight person is "bodyshaming", why mocking an oversound person isn't "audioshaming"? Clear discrimination here imo. WE ARE AUDIOPHILE AND WE ARE PROUD!

A reliable source on SACD and other high resolution discs issued is https://www.hraudio.net/

Thanks for sharing this link. One of the comments under the review for Ornette's Shape of Jazz refers to some good quality hi res downloads from Presto Jazz and Classical, a site I'd seen before but had forgotten about. Looks like they have a ton of jazz and classical lossless (some at 192/24) downloads from $14 to about $20 or so (they sell CDs & SACDs as well) which seem to be good deals. :tup

I'm of the same age, and after losing my first spouse 13 years ago and realizing how fleeting life is I have had no hesitation in keepng competent reliable audio equipment and making improvements to my system as music is a primary joy. . . and life is not guaranteed and always too short, and I don't deny myself principle pleasures and enhancements are welcome. 

Some SACDs that I have are phenomenal sounding--Miles and Duke and Mingus and Coltrane and Armstrong and Santana and Dylan et al. A pleasure to hear, and the preferred version. SACD playback is worth exploring if time and money allow.

Same here.
