LAIV Harmony
I thought exactly the same thing having a little DAC around is a great utility I think I’ll eventually put it into my video editing system until I find my tube DAC. I connected the Harmony DAC to ch 1 (I2S ) and my PSA MK 2 (AES) to to ch 2 on m... 
Is the idea of audiophile listening a dying concept as boomers die off?
I went to a private MBL event and the actual owners/buyers there were in my age bracket and slightly older, which is 40s/50s.  Axpona, on the other hand, was likely more of a demo in their ~60/70s.   In my case, I had to plan months in advance ...

My update ~2 days in...  Had to make some adjustments, but it's sounding really good.  Easily the best value DAC for the money. How it sounds so far:  Best I can describe is that no particular frequency stands out for me, everything has an exc...

Had a member send me $30,000 worth of CHORD DACs/Resmpler/Cables for testing. I asked him how fast I needed to test them and to my surprise, he said to take my time.  And that he had bought a Topping DAC and couldn't tell the difference between t...

Was it Bruce Brisson who developed the first Monster ICs the M300? That was the best cable for the price although it had soft, rolled off highs and limited resolution but it had a smooth, warm mid-range. Today, a comparable inflation adjusted cab...

Oops.  I misspoke.  It was the Transparent OPUS cable ($46000), not MIT.  Here is the link. "And to cut to the chase, Mike could not identify the Monster from the Opus MM with any accuracy (nor the reverse, which also would have been a positive ... 
LAIV Harmony
@soix - ...definitely not for me and I don’t have any issues with sound quality. For reference, the Laiv is running into my MBL 6010D. I’m running my system as a high-end desktop workstation and have a beQuiet Dark Power Pro 13 PSU in my system (... 
LAIV Harmony
I received my Laiv Harmony! Very, very initial first impressions out of the box: Very rich, full, detailed and natural sound signature.  Compared to ESS DACs I've tried, the Laiv doesn't have any harshness on the high end (without dulling anyt...

Is that why MikeL and the two people with him couldn't tell his MIT Oracle cable from Monster in blind testing?  @amir_asr - Which Monster cable and were the cable gauges similar?  Bruce Brisson was Monster's cable designer prior to starting MI...

I never said any reviewer hated a Topping. Generally, AS I STATED BEFORE they think it is very good and one of the best in its price class......that is it....As soon as you go above its price class......it fails. You really need to take a class i...

I ordered mine May 3rd and got a notification it shipped today and should arrive on June 20th (direct from China) via FedEx.  I've been searching for non-professional reactions and comparisons all over and it looks like the YouTube reviews coincid...

Enjoy the trip. Music and audio can be a wonderful journey despite the best efforts of those who will try to convince you that you cant trust your own senses. Even more ridiculous is these people may attempt to convince you they have your best in...

So many opinions on how Amir & his moderators treat posters who don’t fall in line with the forum. Funny thing, I posted a thread here about my experience of testing some AQ Dragon power cords where I didn’t hear a difference... ...I was to...

Just wait until those ASR guys learn that much of science is based on human sense (and has its own biases)!  Boy, if only those kids could read...   Leistner describes his job as "massaging atoms." He works by hand because he believes — and the...
