Some beautiful slabs right there @Dave A

Whaaaaa???  @Emile you got all that?  I was losted from the ASIO...  :)  

 

Keep an eye on him @Westcoastdrums  😂

Haha.  I use foobar2000 as my player.   When you go into settings, the "output" can be selected.  Indeed nice Slabs of wood Dave. I'm sure that will make an amazing final product as always.

Does anyone here really believe that the human ear can hear the difference between a 192 / 384 or 768 KHz converter.😇

Pick them blind folded likely not but I can tell you and anyone else that after a few hours with Higher res info I certainly am looking to go to red book. I find a LOT of the higher res stuff gets brittle and harsh

You use whaaa @Westcoastdrums???  Now I'm REALLY losted!  hahaha

 

  I got a my old JBL128S Sub fired up a bit ago.  Auction find for $150 coupled w/a new to me Sunfire plate amp?  Also had some great help and guidance from a friend in here as to what to do and how to do it.  I won't mention his name cause one of me floating around in here is enough!  :)

 

Finally hangin some stuff in here but that's on a temporary hold cause these LS coupled w/that old sub is killin me.  Glad my neighbors love me is all I can say.  hahaha

 

Damn it's freakin incredible!  :)

OK; finally got a DAC :)  Lavaudio DS600. Don't hear much of a difference though :( 

Dacs are like any other piece of gear, Research, and testing are required. I have gone through at least a dozen DACs in the journey. When you get the right one you will know it. DACs absolutely have differences in sound. The trick is getting one that meets your preferences, as well as exceling at. Detail, Resolution, Clarity, Decay etc... I have seen you sell off amps etc... DACs are no different, If you want first class digital it will take a bit to get there. Have fun

After all the rave reviews here, I decided to see if this is my cup of tea or not. Hope I love it and it's a keeper for me.

What were your impressions of the M2? Have you compared to any other  FW?  I think you just sold it, but can you give an assessment of it. I have an F3 but looking to try more FW amps.

thanks, Ted

Haven't gotten it yet. Will be my first amp from the first watt series. I'll let you know after I have spent some time with it.  I'm hoping it's a keeper. I didn't sell it, I bought it and I'm waiting to receive it.

I was having a chat with a colleague about hifi gear the other day and he told me he´s got two TTs he´s got in storage because of place restrains. One is a unspecified Thorens and the other a Technics SL-7... interesting. Also told me, he wouldn´t part with either...

Thanx , I´m looking for some upper class TT´s .  Nothing decided yet , can happen in the first quarter of 2022 . At the moment, I can't imagine life without my Micro Seiki either.

I didn't get a thing today.  Youngest daughter scored a The Three for $287 @ 50% off for 3 days.  That would be THREE days!  Sent her a text w/the Klipsch link and asked her if she wanted one and to look at the video.  Within 30 seconds I got a text back saying YES DADDY!  I don't want the black one and I love the screen on it!  Screen?  hahahaha  Yea, yea, TRUST IN DAD!  Made the call and it's on the way.  How DO they DO that???   😂  😂  😂

 

The THREE @ 50% off for 3 days only and the  clock IS running!  :)
