I wonder where I got it from? :) Thanks MT!

The antelope is a loaner. I ordered one, but they were sold out :( So slightly frustrated I cancelled my order and bought the audiolab m-dac instead. Then I was offered to loan a zodiac and try it out untill they get a new batch in stock. So that's what I'm doing now :) As for comparisons, I'm getting a hegel hd20 this weekend aswell so after spending some hours listening to all of them with my he-500's, I'll make a thread about it. More than likely I'll do that on sunday, as I have to return the hegel monday morning. Right now it's too early to say anything definitive as I've only had the zodiac for a bit over 1 hour.

 

The only thing I'll say right now is that I hoped that whatever I would hear from the zodiac would be so minute in difference to the m-dac that I could dismiss it as some over-priced bling for hi-fi posers, totally not worth the price. But right now...keeping in mind I havn't A/B'ed the two and I might just be imagining this/placebo/whatever...I think I need a zodiac gold with voltikus in my lifeatsmile.gif

 

But I'll make a thread about it when I have done the dac's justice. Let's not derail this thread wink_face.gif

I'll be doing some A/Bing of my Calyx DAC and the new Cambridge 851C once my Mapletree Line Router gets here (Mmmmm...instantly switchable inputs). Then again...I hope the Calyx sells before the LR 1 is done because I want my new TT. D:

How many hours did the Zodiac loaner have when you received it out of curiosity?  If it has relatively little hours so far, it will get even better with some time.

 

I bought my first Antelope near release in the form of the Zodiac+ with custom power supply and I still have and love it to this day in my secondary studio system (primary headphone system has a gold / volt now).

 

Yes the price of entry is a bit higher for some of the Antelope gear, but they certainly back it up.

My dad owns a pair of Mission 731's, they sound pretty good, but when it comes to vocals, IMO, nothing beats the Rogers LS3/5a


The thing that's really kept me from loving any other speaker the size and price of the 771 is that it produces fantastic bass. It's insane how detailed yet present the bass is on these little two-way bookshelvers.

The Shures are a real treat to listen to right now...going to wait until the "new car smell" wears off before jotting down impressions.

 

Ahh I have the same amp and just finished posting my thoughts on it. Love the Burson! It's killing me inside that you have the black Woo Audio stand and not the silver one to match! UGGHH

It's an APureSound v3 cable w/the Furutech plug. Pretty hefty plug!

Read your great mini-review on the Burson earlier. I couldn't have said it any better myself TBH. Yeah, any one want to trade the black stand for a silver one? Seriously though, I plan to rearrange things when I figure out where to get a wide enough monitor stand that will accomodate the Power Wave DAC that's on the way, alongside the Burson.

What does the Mapletree Line Router allow you to do?  Can you post a link to it?
