    Re: Esoteric N-01XD

    Being an owner of N-01, and being a former owner of many other DAC's, and having heard even more other DAC's than those, the N-01 remains the best I've thus heard. If there wasn't an N-01XD I'd be...

    For my money the N-01XD is a no-brainer.

    You have two sets of CM footers, why not try them for yourself under the power conditioner?

    Re: Esoteric N-01XD

    Let's assume by approximation a DSD512 file is 1GB and plays for 4 minutes.
    That is 250MB per minute.
    25MB per 6 seconds.
    Assuming WAN speed to most homes is 50MBPS or better, the river is still...

    In exactly the same way you stream Spotify direct to the DAC without downloading.

    You can hear a difference when you swap it around the other way?

    Bog standard coat hangar wire, kettle cords, or whatever. I have difficulty wrapping my head around spending that much money on cables instead of buying the more refined speaker.

    Instead of the Alpha V2 loom, would that money get you the M2 instead of buying A5?

    Re: Cybershaft Owners

    I'd like to know which brings about the bigger improvement of its own, the clock or the PS1. I own an Esoteric clock, but I'm tempted by the Cybershaft.

    Re: Cybershaft Owners

    How does that work, dealer paying full retail? Or do they see you as an end user and not as a reseller?

    Re: Cybershaft Owners

    I'm left wondering how close in performance between an Esoteric G1 and Cybershaft OP21. Certainly the price difference is part-way explained by the Esoteric Grandioso chassis. The Grandioso chassis...

    Re: Cybershaft Owners

    What did they do differently with the v2? It's the exact same cable and connectors but with two polarizer gizmos and not one, right? And v2 is same price as v1? I haven't seen any reports of A/B...

    Why did you get a Cybershaft and not stay in the Esoteric family with a G-02X or G1?

    Re: Ascending to even greater heights

    I have mono amps. In Australia OMEGA QR is $16K. So that's $32K for the pair of power cables. Compare that to the price of a Denali 2000T replacement and three lesser cables which might get you about...

    PS Audio power cables use molded barrels and they are probably the most widely ripped off power cables in the universe. PS Audio's solution to the problem was not to use anti-counterfeiting measures...

    My reading of what Caelin said above does not suggest that Omega XC is only manufactured with a C19.

    You should be able to control volume for NET source via the SoundStream App. You can with N-01.

    All Shunyata power distributors use 20A inlets. What you have is the full EU version.

    When the choice is, not being able to use it because you don't have the right cable, or use an adapter, use the adapter.
