    MQA is Vaporware

    I wasn't trying to prove anything, just a data point. Why so aggressive?

    hmm.. just tried it and it worked fine.
  3. Ralf- sounds like he used the same "good" outboard DAC for both cd and laptop. I'd stick with the laptop, money is best spent on speakers and room setup.

    That's what all the cool kids do. I like racking and shelves but I have no friends, so....

    RIP Siegfried Linkwitz

    Just thought you all should know that a great person and fantastic engineer has died. I met Mr. Linkwitz on several occasions and his generosity and enthusiasm for sound reproduction were contagious. He never stopped learning, and never stopped teaching. He lived a full life.

    Burning Amp 2018

    I don't think any one has posted this yet. Burning amp September 30, 2018 at Fort Mason in San Francisco. This is a super fun event with lots of creative diy amps, electronics and speakers. It's not all high end but there are some gems and great guest speakers. This year there will be presentations by Wayne Colburn of Pass Labs, Roger Modjeski of ramlabs-musicreference, and of course Nelson Pass the patron saint of diy amp building and formerly of Pass Labs, First Watt, etc. These guys give fun and informative talks of which most goes right over my head. Please come and browse what people have done or bring a project completed or not for free admission. I've been going for 7 years and would not miss it! http://www.burningamp.org/ http://www.diyaudio.com/forums/clubs-and-events/323280-burning-amp-2018-a.html

    My Class D amp is beginning to suck

    I'm in Aptos, close enough. I'll get them out of storage on Sunday. If you want to send me a pm with a contact number I'll give you a call to set it up.

    Hey wgscott- I think were in the same town. Let me know if you wanna barrow a pair of nc400's to try out.
  12. I see your point I may have over stated. This is what I was referring to: "My first thought when seeing them was Wilson decided to make a play on getting their brand in one of these obscene corporate party penthouses. The only natural environment I can see these existing in is designer wall shelving in a highrise apartment listening room perhaps as large as our erstwhile reviewers third bathroom."
  13. Wow! I can't say that I ever conjure up some contemptuous picture of the end user when looking at speakers. I think you might be over thinking this.
  14. I've only been able to compare them to the LS50's and Usher BE718's as well as many other high end diy designs. I've heard some other speakers but I don't believe any real conclusions can been drawn until you have a pair of speakers in your listening room with your music for an extended period of time. The Carreras really do everything well within the confines of a small two-way. The highs, lows, great midrange resolution yet still very warm, the Hyquephon is amazing with symbols. I'm pretty happy with them.
  15. Does anybody on here have a pair of these? I have a pair of the Carreras that I built, I would not mind comparing the two. Just for fun. p.s. I'm in the Monterey/San Francisco bay area.
