      Hi All
      First post and Im sooooo excited!
      A bit about me. I used to be really into Hifi up until about 15 years ago but kids, career and life got me side tracked. So I have about 15 years of catching to do. I have been reading this forum and watching heaps of youtube in the last 2 months in order to catch up.   Although its been invaluable, experience is often the best teacher.
      I have a dilemma.  I like the convenience of integrated, but would always go for sound quality over all other criteria.
      Im thinking of upgrading my lower end old NAD power amp and Rotel pre-amp.
      There is a great looking  Auralic Polaris for sale which is a great all in one solution imo.
      The alternative might be Schiit Vidar, Schiit Freya with Schiit Modi 3 (which I have).  The Schiit Modi 3 is pretty good but nothing amazing in my experience compared to whats in my old Rotel pre.  Is Schiit over hyped or am I expecting too much for a cheap component?
      Does anyone have any experience with comparing something like the Auralic Polaris to something like the Schiit pre/power amp?
      Can a Schiit Vidar/Freya/Modi compete with the Auralic in sound quality?
      The Auralic would most probably have a much better DAC than the Schiit Modi 3 I guess, but what would it be comparable too?
      Are amplifier Class A/B (Schiit) vs Class D (Auralic etc) sound signatures relevant?
      Im looking for smooth highs (not to forward) and plenty slam in the bass.
      The amplifier is to drive some Martin Logan Motion 35x and / or Monitor Audio Silver 8 Floor stand speaker.  I may change to Buchardt s400 / Kef R3 in the future.
      Source will be streaming TIDAL.
      So many questions I know but it would be great if some one could guide me.
      Thanks a lot

      Just thought I'd put up a post to draw attention to Burson's new offering.
      Looks very nice, although I will admit to being a little confused about the power supply description.
