    The reason why we kept arguing is that it seems like we were discussing on different things. What I was trying to share is a passive preamp, but you might intended to share some active one/electronic switch control/even not a preamp(that couldn't do...

    The test proves that Lumin is able to output 32-bit. We also output 32-bit to XMOS and ITF-based USB DAC (recent Esoteric). Every DAC is different, especially for Linux. Take native DSD for example, many DAC is able to do native DSD in Windows but...

    I think you pay 20% tax in the EU, right? In Australia we pay 10% tax, and the national Magico distributor tries to keep local pricing close to parity with US MSRP (to his credit).

    No. I suspect any benefits of the isolation in the rack are probably being neutered by the CS2 footers under the electronics (the pre-amp, transport, transport power supply and DAC all sit on CS2's). The CS2 were doing their thing before the YG rack...

    Sometimes I wonder what makes cables so expensive. There is the type of wire, gauge, and dialectic used. Perhaps methods for shielding and twisting but what really is there that makes cables $5000 plus more? ozzy
