It's all relative, depends on the table.  A cheaper upgrade would be getting a new cartridge or stylus.

 

Granted, if you're serious in upgrading your table, we can talk, haha.

The dac landscape is changing quite a bit these days, mostly in the area of usb implementation. Coax/spdif input technology has been quite stable for a long time now, and have been buggered with in the "audiophile" realm far longer than usb. They also don't transmit any power issues, unlike usb interfaces which can push through a lot of noise.

 

The usb stuff is more consumer friendly in general, but the spdif stuff is more stable.

That ain't too bad, you can find yourself a better P-Mount cartridge.  But, PM me later if you're really looking to buy.

That is true, USB implementation is the big thing right now with DACs. I still look for soundcards with coax.spdif output just for that reason.

Assuming the snow ever melts, we should plan the next meet and make it a bbq!

post #1356 of 1850

hope to attend the next meet 

post #1357 of 1850

That'd be cool. Haven't seen you come out to one in a while.

The snow will never melt!  It's snowing once more!

post #1359 of 1850

It's kind of ridiculous isn't it?

post #1360 of 1850
I'm about ready to throw caution to the wind and move to Mexico. No snow there. It's going to be a mediocre summer.
post #1361 of 1850

Well...  a slow spring at least means a slow melt which should temper the flood predictions. 

post #1362 of 1850

i second the bbq meet! Crank it enough and no amount of snow can keep us from delicious burgers!

post #1363 of 1850

Mmmmmmmmmm buurrgerrsssss

When do we want to aim for? Is May long weekend too soon? (like Sunday May 19th or something)

post #1365 of 1850

I might possibly be able to make it.  Or, if everyone wanted to drive 2.5 hours west to Riding Mountain National Park, I could host.  smily_headphones1.gif

 

By the way, nice job landing a front page review again, Nathan.
