That amp was by Josh Stippich and it is called Electron Luv. There is some info and another link here: http://www.6moons.com/industryfeatur...c032/vsac.html
This article also talks about the VRS a bit. That was the VRS I.
Ok, we are back from a very long day. It was really a great time. Now I understand why people always comment on how nice it is to meet other audiophiles at the meets. This was definitely the highlight for me.
We had two listening sessions, one at a cable company and another at a guy's house (Jay) who is an audio reviewer for the Robb Report. David (909) came with his Reimyo and Moth Audio amp.

All I can say is that the music I heard sounded very real. It was...
I'm planning on stepping up to an Singlepower SDS-XLR w/some upgrades. I would really like to use my computer as my source, but am concerned that my options might be too limited. Does anyone have experience with the Emprirical Audio modded sources (DAC1 and/or Northstar). I know this thread may belong on another sub-forum, but i am not closed to considering other sources.

I had a nice convo with Mikhail (Singlepower)...
