Thanks to all that responded in my recent post regarding my digital front end!

Many of you suggested Aurender for a streamer. I have found a demo unit that will eat up the majority of my $5,000 budget not leaving me much money for a new DAC.

I thought it was the DAC that was the most important item in the digital chain.

Any thoughts on this? Thank you!



@navyachts, not a problem. I’ll side aside time this week & hopefully ship no later than Thursday (2nd day air) if you’re interested. Yessir, 2007 I2S Revelation. Connector contacts thoroughly cleaned w/ DeoxIT D5 followed up with a coat of DeoxIT Gold G100 performed before shipment. A slight fork in the road though, a personal OCD problem perhaps. Revelation Audio Labs (why 16 years of age, poof) decided on transparent heat & shrink vs their signature color and over these years in between shrink / jacket lies a white substance has gathered much like what you’d see on perhaps a faucet which lacks a cleaning, calcium buildup. Ugh, I promise the cable is legit & so is the package ... and I’ll try n address the heat shrink discoloration issue.



@dabel  awfully kind of you, Good sir! Although some people are saying now that a DDC may not be the way to go with the Aurender N200, it may be a distraction. I guess I wouldn't know till I try, but if I don't use a DDC I'll be using a USB or coaxial cable, I really don't want to make you goout of your way and make trouble for you. If you do send it, I'm sure I'll definitely use it somewhere down the road if not, thank you so much for you good hearteness!

Yes, and touching base. I indeed intend on shipping my Revelation Prophecy I2S out with a slight change of plans and for one reason … a multitasking outside world has kept me from keeping a deadline promise by sponge soaking many daylight man hours this week. We’re all familiar with … work, it’s the next best thang. Besides, Monday (next day air) sounds the more logical decision over lets say Thursday (2nd day) ah much later in a week weekday.
