Next Step

Recommended Posts

I am new to computer HiFi sound. I bought a pair of Event Tuned Reference 8's for my computer a few years ago but just hooked them up directly from the computer. I was not impressed. So I took the next step and added a Benchmark DAC1 via a USB Kimber Kable and two Balanced XLR Kimber Kables to the Event speakers. I was blown away by the improvement in sound. So I want to take another step. I was thinking of improving the player I'm using which is iTunes and trying some HD music files. What do you think, is this a step in the right direction, is it the right next step? Thanks

Personally I'd upgrade to a more modern computer than trying to get audio working well with NeXTStep :-)

While I agree "Everything may matter" working out what actually affects the sound is a trickier thing.

And I agree "Trust your ears" but equally don't allow them to fool you - trust them with a bit of skepticism.

keep your mind open... But mind your brain doesn't fall out.

Sorry catskill... I knew what you meant; just my bad sense of humour...
