Back to 16 Bit...


Recommended Posts

I've decided it's not worth the fight any more..

 

This is sooooooo like the SACD vs CD wars back in the 80's it's uncanny and scary....

 

At the end of the day if there is limited content and limited players (in this case = multiroom streaming solutions for me that WORK.. = suitable software.._) I mean WHY BOTHER??

 

So right now, I have to regrettably say, it's Sonos 1.... Wappinghigh Nil..

 

Time to get a life and play some 16 bit.. :)

Of course all this as well, in my most trusted 16 bit listening zone.. my Awesome and classic Benchmark DAC1. The best 16 bit listening experience in the universe!

 

Man I luv that thing!!!

 

Benchmark DAC 1.

 

The No1 DAC in the inaugural DAC "Hall of FAME".. :)

I couldn't agree more. Just sold a SONOS Connect to a client and he is using it into a Metrum Hex dac and digging it.
