    True. A Lumin U1 or Aurender W20SE would go nicely in there. Shunyata Sigma USB too!

    So... he gets to use and live with all of this for free? Are you surprised each piece is getting glowing reviews... makes you wonder where his interests lay

    Did he say he gets it all for free? I missed that. I frankly highly doubt it. I’m sure he got it as a reviewer on accommodation pricing, which is standard. I don’t think there is anything hinky going on here. Doug is a good guy.

    If that was the case then he wouldnt have mentioned the fact that everything has to go back eventually

    I think that the author is saying is 'bits are bits; DAC/Pre/Amp/speakers that's what really matters but I like cables too'
