WAV on SD cards > Windows 7 latptop > Foobar 2000 WASAPI event mode > USB (data only) to Resonessence Concero SPDIF out > Beresford Bushmaster MkII > OPPO PM-1 (with both the Concero and the Bushmaster MkII on separate battery packs)
I forgot to ask you earlier: is there any specific reason you keep your files on SD cards as opposed to, say, a removable hard drive? It seems like you'd need a large number of cards if you have more than a couple thousand songs.
That is an excellent question, that I can answer even by not being the person asked the question.
Removable hard drive's are nice and all, but they take up a lot of space in a backpack, and aren't really portable. They cost a lot, and don't work with DAP's.
On the other hand an SD is very portable, and doesn't take up backpack space. SD cards can be used with DAP's like the Askell & Kernel DAP's.
The SD cards also come in 64gb which can hold up to 15,000+ songs, so nobody is ever going to need more than two SD cards.
Thanks for the thorough and complete answer; I see why it has its advantages. I prefer my 1.5TB USB hard drive as portable music storage, but I then have to maintain separate libraries on DAPs and on the computer in my main rig and keep it all up-to-date. I just enjoy having the organized folder structure and ability to have my whole collection in one place that comes with the hard drive.
The addition of a cheap garage sale Eames chair is the single best audio decision I've made in a long while.
The AMC makes a great pairing with any warm headphones or speakers, and is one of the few pieces of equipment that I've never had thoughts of selling. The bright, snappy sound signature of the preamp and the fabulously silent tone controls are among the best I've heard at any price bracket. It's getting a little old and electronically finicky now, but I think if I take the case off I can get at it with DeoxIT and make it good as new.
