Theoretica Applied Physics BACCH-SP adio Stereo Purifier - The Absolute Sound

Theoretica Applied Physics BACCH-SP adio Stereo Purifier - A Princeton professor of physics has spent decades figuring out how to make stereo sound more realistic. Now, with the “Band-Assembled Crosstalk Cancellation Hierarchy” (BACCH) processor, you can hear stereo imaging as never before...

I have serious interest in this cross talke cancelling unit and Dac.

I wish to find out the effect myself.

There could be unexpected suprise as ohter audio show. ;)

I had lived in Chicago from 1998 to 2001 whete my son was born.

I had enjoyed nice audio shops over there.

I bought my Apogee Duetta Sig driven by Krell KSA 150.

It is one of the most musical audio system through my 45 years of Audiophile.

In one week Axpona will here in Schaumburg , Illinois. Skhong I will going Friday and maybe Saturday too.



I am going to arrive on Friday morning.


If it is fine with you we can have lunch together.




My name tag will be "Thomas Kong"

Hey guys, I’ll be attending for both a business and pleasure. I’ll arrive on Thursday afternoon to help with some setup, attend the industry mixer, and then be at the show from Fri-Sun morning, driving back to Minnesota mid day. I’d love to meet any of you in person!

A good part of the time, I’ll be helping Greg of DH Labs in his booth at the expo hall as he travels by himself from Florida and needs help at times. A portion of the rest of my time will be visiting my distributors and brands to network, hear their rooms. A third goal is to discover and network with new brands I may have interest in taking on in my dealership, and the remainder of the time will be spent exploring for fun with friends and peers.
