Hey,

 

What's those feet you got on your PWT - Do they come with them?

I don't know what feet he's using, but they definitely don't come with the PWD/PWT.

 

Edit: Apparently those feet come with the Tranquility Base ($2,000).

Looks like SR MIG isolation footers from here.

PWD incoming! Will be comparing to the Cantata DAC very soon.

^^  Cool you got the Cantata there with you?  

 

I got a m51 coming I just got from Radio_Head and I'm borrowing a friends Gungnir.  They should get here around the same time.

No. That has to wait until tax season.

A cool $6500. :/

 

It's safe to say, I'll only be keeping 1.

Oh Shi_t   To much for me..

 

If you paying that much - why not step up to Stax?

Hope that maybe one pops up in a few months. I'd love to not spend that much. But either way, I'm only keeping one.

 

I really enjoy the LCD-3's and at best I'd only be able to pick up a Stax amp until at least next year. That and by then, I don't know what 

the wait time on a LL or BHSE would be.

Quoting an old post, but very true. KS and WASAPI in Windows sound different too and it's clear to me. Even with lower end gear I can normally hear it.

 

KS sounds a bit prominent in the lower treble. WASAPI is more relaxed there. There are some subtle differences in soundstage and attack as well. I have preferred either one at different times over the years. Depends on the associated equipment.

Does Foobar have WASAPI - Event Style?

It did the last time I used it though buggy compared to JRiver.
