I gave strong consideration to Don's amp when I eventually went with the Moth. Love the architecture.

only drawback (and put off for many) is waiting time :(

but these things are shockingly good. and not just "for the money" ;)

Y pre does its job nicely (not totally transparent though but... hey: it's 1k$!) whilst the X... wow: it has always gloriously rewarded any improvement I made to sources :) (and my jaw dropped to the floor the day I tried going DAC > power amp direct)

Hello from Cali, Colombia, SouthAmerica.

Just some photos of my "AUDIOFFICE". These days I work from home about 50% of my time. At the same time I am just starting to learn and play with computer audio so I decided to setup my small system right in my small office (14FTx11FT).

The wood base use to be part of avery ancient tree that was struck by a lightning.

MacMini and a Parasound Integrated (plus Meridian explorer2 for MQA).

DIY Kairos stand mounted loudspeakers.

I am enjoying this new "era" of computer audio and trying to learn as much as possible, so a lot of questions will for sure be happening .

Ah! And the weird tube-difusser was just an idea to use a bunch of tubes I have around. It is better than the bare wall and looks kind of cool ( I guess...). And yes, everybody thinks I am a little bit crazy, of course!.

Enjoying some music right now....Jen Chapin...and surfing on iPad. Snapped this from couch. Love not having Mac Mini out here, thanks to Micro Rendu on bottom shelf - right.

Sir, you have great taste - fantastic use of resources!

Klavier, very tasteful looking setup that does not overtake the room. Clearly, you are well tempered!

 

Well played, sir.

very nice! so did you dust everything before you took the pics? never seen such an absence of dust -- definitely not what you'd see with a good look at my rig!

@Alaric. H Pure elagance! And fantastic audio rack! May I ask about the brand.?


The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night, and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Mark the music.

                                                                          ―  William Shakespeare.

All new gear so they'll be pretty for a little while.
