    Re: Experience/Opinion on USB conversion???

    Honestly, I have never met a device that would work with Windows AND Apple iOS, but not with Linux. IMO sth is not right with the 526.
  5. Re: My Sonus Faber Stradivari - Curiosity got the better of me!

    I think it should work nicely with the Strads. The Momentum is one of my all time fav integrateds.

    I had one on loan for the couple of weeks - it worked beautifully with my M3s (which are not so...

  10. Re: My Sonus Faber Stradivari - Curiosity got the better of me!

    Strads still use what has to be considered current drive unit technology. All of those drive units are used to this day in varoius current speakers. At the time they have been launched - they were...

    Re: Magico and class D amp

    I have owned several magicos and quite consistently, all the amps that sounded the best with them were on the warmer side of neutral. It can be a powerful tube amp or class-A solid state, but they...

    Their bass extension is about right for their size.
  14. Re: Cybershaft 10Mhz master clocks, new products at various price points....

    I bet the Esoteric chassis would make them 3-4x more expensive.

    Those are trully state of the art clocks at affordable prices.
  15. Re: Need a little education in Class D? What's the latest (and greatest) ?

    I have both the Purify and Ncore based amps from Nord. Purify is a bit better. Changing the op-amps in both makes actually a bigger difference (I prefer the Sparkos-Labs).

    My Graaf 20OTL amp wipes...

    There is no golden rule. It all depends on implementation, both on the transport and DAC end.

    Re: The Vendors Letter to Axpona

    I would guesstimte they have already paid the hotel ~50% deposit at this point. This is what I have paid and I have problems with rolling that over to 2021. We are talking about a six figure numbers....

    Re: The Vendors Letter to Axpona

    'Cos the hotel didn't give them the money back and MOC did (they have rolled over the payment to 2021). That makes all the difference. I can guarantee that if MOC decided to keep the money, High End...

    Re: A ticket for 110 over in a 70 zone

    Wow. I did once 190 mph in Warsaw in a friend's Audi R8 V10 (190 in 50 zone).

    That was a dead end of a partialy opened freeway, with 3 lanes and zero traffic, so no police either.

    Re: Metrum Acoustics Bankrupt

    I bought the Metrum Octave out of curiosity a while back. It was a good back. Denafripis with lower production costs may indeed had been their nemesis.
