random thoughts on THE Show
Had an excellent day there Friday. I do regret missing the Wilsons. My favorite room had Silverline Bolero Supremes with a 1/4" tape source. Went back a 2nd time.Venice Audio's setup was very nice. Ocean Way (never had heard of them) had these big...

Marakanetz, We didn't listen when they told us to watch out the the speaker makers' haircuts.

No Audiophiles in Hollywood
Was watching the Alphas pilot on Hulu. David Strathairn's character is a vinyl nut and his office has an interesting pair of speakers. Anyone know what kind they are?

Erikminer,The DAC is using a Shunyata Diamondback power cord, a Kimber USB cable, and a Blue Jeans optical cable. The Blue Jeans didn't cost a lot. So far it sounds good. Over time I'll keep A-B-ing it with the USB. Not sure I'm gonna put more mon...

I've had the DAC-2 for over a month now. I'd guess it has almost four hundred hours on it. I first compared it to my old Lite DAC-AH from Pacific Electric. The Lite DAC has a super hot signal and distorts sometimes. It sounded decent but I've been...

The W4S DAC-2 has balance control using the remote. 
Wyred Dacs--Thoughts?
Third day of breaking in the DAC-2. Impressed with many aspects so far. Not being very analytical. Just getting used to it. superficial aspects: it's an giant SUV compared to my little Lite DAC-AH; i like the dimmable display; the controls are tho...
