I'm gonna try one of the Japanese eBay vendors then, they're simply half of the price there.
The distributor here asks 1645€ for a HP-A8c. And that's straight from the distributor, no dealer even involved.
I am looking for an original D7100 cable, the one with the big 6.3mm jack.
I would like to shorten that cable and put a high quality 3.5mm jack on it.
I do have the original cable with 3.5mm jack but that one has a crappy volume control which I don't want.
Can anyone help me out here or make such a cable for me?
Thanks for the Wiki article Currwong, saved to DevonThink!
I'll see if I can find some of my SACD's as a DSD download.
Still, I might have to find a way to rip some I can't find.
But the article raised another question for me:
Can iTunes handle the DSD format and send it unchanged to the Dac via USB? Or what player on a Mac can? Or should the Dac read the file directly from the HDD?
The NA-11S1 is out, finally. Info in this LINK.
Things of note:
DSD via USB.
ALAC support via network ... finally a Dac tha has this!
Discrete headphone amp and as I read somewhere it uses Marantz HDAM modules, also used in their amps and CD players.
Now I'm not making any predicitons about this Dac being good as headphone amp, I tried many Marantz players for that purpose and a dedicated amp will surely be better. But one never...
I must say that even though most of the Lamy pens are pretty inexpensive compared to MB for example (I have a Safari and Accent), the nibs are actually of pretty good quality and smooth to write with. Pleasant surprise and nice if you want a bunch of pens for different inks.
