Video clips of interest ...



Just noted this one, demonstrating an nominally high performance DAC,

Just found a YT channel which does some comparisons of full chain gear setups, which makes it quite easy to pick the differences - here's a good example,



Would be interesting to see which people can't pick the variations, 😉 ...
