    Glad it all went well and hope recovery continues to go well. Joint replacements are common these days I wonder what the cause of the damage is.

    We have the same combo in the store and I agree, the NS1 takes the DV2 to the next level.

    Thanks for the great post about computing with the T + A...do you think the Dell you listed would do a good job of up converting to DSD512 with HQP while running Roon simultaneously? I would rather spend more and get something that will handle more if needed..,thanks again!
