I guess Mark Waldrep wasn't invited. :)

 

Seriously, quite an impressive lineup. Unfortunately, it's just too far and too expensive to go.

yeah, I wish I could too.

It would be nice to create some kind of video coverage; I wonder if that is possible.

 

Have a great show!

The excitement DSD512 May Fest has gone up another big notch, Chris Connaker is coming !

 

With Chris, Jussi Laako, Jared Sacks, we have drawn Full DSD / Computer Audio House :-)

 

As to delivering the sonics we are confident, the Giya G1's have a gorgeous sound, the Taiko mono bloc power amps are optimized for working with DAC's with built in volume controls, and they are just singing in their new all alluminium cases.

I am sorry to report that the event is already over booked.

 

The public viewing time is from 2pm to 6pm, and some of us will definitely be free to chat with you and ask for your sonic observations, and share with you our 2 cents about today's DAC landscape

 

Look forward to seeing you there

The event went very well. Quite a few people said it was the best sound they ever heard !

 

elberoth said only the new Magico speakers powered by the Solution 701 monoblocs sounded better than our system which costs a fraction of the price of the Solution setup

 

A highlight was Jussi talk during the tech session
