  1. HDTracks UK has now closed. Following the closure of HDTracks Germany last month. https://www.hdtracks.co.uk/
  2. I've used the iFi Audio iDSD Micro BL with DSD files up to DSD 512 Stereo and WAV/FLAC files with great success. At $599, it's an excellent audio value.
  3. exaSound Audio Design, manufacturer of innovative, exceptional fidelity audio products, has just released the Delta Music Server. It premiered at the Florida Audio Expo, February 7-9, 2020. Built around the Intel i9-9900 8-core CPU, the Delta Music Server offers heavy-duty DSP processing and upsampling with Roon for stereo and multichannel applications. Silent, high-performance hardware and exaOS lightweight operating system facilitate streaming to virtually all USB DACs and Roon-supported audio devices. Roon Core delivers intelligent management of music content stored on hard drives, NAS, and from streaming servicesTidal and Qobuz. UPnP offers bitperfect Hi-Res streaming up to DSD512, PCM 768KHz / 32bit and DXD. Large 7" touchscreen provides quick control and visibility from a distant listening position. Special integration with exaSound DACs offers flawless user experience and exceptional fidelity. The exaSound Delta can serve a double duty as server and player/renderer when exaSound DAC is attached via USB. Unique asynchronous packet streaming developed by exaSound guarantees that CPU load caused by multiple server tasks does not affect the timing accuracy and precision of local USB playback. With one device audiophiles can have it all - reference-quality music server and top-performance streamer. https://positive-feedback.com/industry-news/exasound-unveils-the-new-delta-music-server/ https://www.exasound.com/Products/DeltaServer.aspx
  4. Simply.... George! from VDM Records in Italy. https://www.nativedsd.com/albums/VDM03855042-simply-george
  5. exaSound does offer a Mini XLR output for their 8 channel DACs. That's how my e28 exaSound DAC was configured. Works fine in balanced mode.
  6. NativeDSD does sell albums recorded in DXD (24 bit or 32 bit 352.kHz) but not albums recorded and produced at 24/96 or 24/192. That's why the two albums from 2xHD mentioned earlier are not available from their web store. https://www.nativedsd.com/ https://blog.nativedsd.com/sell-albums-multiple-dsd-bit-rates-dxd/ The good news is 2xHD has more Analog to DSD releases coming that will be at NativeDSD.
  7. Looks like exaSound is having a Black Friday sale on their products. Includes $600 Off their e38 8-Channel DACs. https://www.exasound.com/Blog/tabid/74/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/1285/categoryId/8/exaSound-Black-Friday-Deals.aspx
  8. 30% Off Sale on 11 Jazz and Blues albums in DSD from 2xHD. Use code JAZZnBLUES through Sunday, November 3, 2019 for the savings. https://blog.nativedsd.com/jazz-blues-singers-special/
  9. Interesting. ECM is now releasing albums in DXD as well as DSD?
  10. 10 albums from Pentatone, including their newest release Soiree with Magdalena Kozena and Sir Simon Rattle making his recording debut as a pianist are now available from NativeDSD Music in Stereo and Multichannel DSD 256 and Stereo DSD 512. https://www.nativedsd.com/information/breaking-news-from-pentatone
  11. Big news from PS Audio, the company behind the DirectStream DAC. https://forum.psaudio.com/t/is-psaudio-going-direct-sale-only/12247/65 https://www.audionirvana.org/forum/the-audio-vault/digital-playback/121384-ps-audio-drops-their-dealers-and-adopts-direct-sales-model
  12. A 70 capacitor "farm". That's a lot of capacitors!

  14. Here's a new YouTube video that features an interview between Jared Sacks from NativeDSD and Channel Classics and Claude that covers Merging, DSD and a look at the Anubis. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksLfT1yvXxo
  15. News from High End Munich show. Astell & Kern is launching a new flagship portable player - the SP 2000 - with DSD 512 playback. The SP 2000 is scheduled for availability in July 2019. NativeDSD Music is making a 5-track DSD 512 Stereo sampler available for the SP 2000 (at the Munich show) and on the web to play on additional DSD 512 DACs.
