  1. I don’t want to sound too disparaging but confirming your $60k speakers still sound good while record people are about to be searching for their next meal just makes me want to exit this hobby.
  2. Nice case! My gaming PC back in the day was in a modded Silverstone TJ-07. Brings back memories.
  3. Nice review! The comparisons are so useful.
  4. I would have no problem using HQP's digital volume control......if it fooled me with a big old volume knob and a readout on the DAC! That's the part I need more than a resistor ladder, tactility!
  5. I think there may be a few (many) statements being "lost in translation" here. 🙂
  6. Agreed. It's literally changing one setting in Roon and you've got up to DSD512 that works every time without fail, robust DSP, and a choice of 4 very good sounding filters.
  7. What I wouldn't give for this to trickle down into a DAC8 DSD-like package with only the DSD converter. Ethernet DSD 1024 in and beautiful analog out at a real world price..... Perhaps a little too niche 🙂
  8. Wow you guys are some tough acts to follow. Beautiful systems here! 😍 Focal Sopra 2 Perla Audio Maestro pre Perla Audio Righello monoblocks T+A DAC 8 DSD Custom Win 10 streamer and server
  9. How did you control for sighted bias against the Etherregen? EDIT: actually who gives a crap, I'm not buying one of these either. I can't think of anything less fun in the audiophile hobby than networking gear.
  10. That picture gives me the willies.
  11. Hey Kal Rubinson you could arrange these into a cubicle and have one hell of an office/home theater!
  12. Looks like junk to me. Hope you didn't pay much. Edit: the price was right. Edit 2: damn you now you've got me looking at some Byron Morgan putters.
  13. I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. Happy Holidays.
  14. It’s not and to ask that question shows you’re missing the point. If you have two people and one guy believes that there could be no difference and the other believes there could be, you ask the guy who believes there is a difference to prove it by performing the test. That’s all I’m saying. His motivation would be unquestioned.
  15. It matters because there could be motivation to act in bad faith, and no way to control for that????
  16. Haha that's probably not far off. If i'm going to buy an expensive cable at least wine, dine, and voodoo me!
  17. It's more like you emptying the tobacco out of a cigar and taking a giant dump inside, then rolling it back up.
  18. I think he's just saying that someone who believes that there shouldn't be an audible difference between two components carries that bias into the listening test. It makes perfect sense to me. You're also trying to twist people's words into a different meaning in what looks to be bad faith.
  19. Hehe touche home theater guy!
