post #15916 of 18472

I just ordered a Valhalla 2 as my old LD is starting to die and as it was used when I bought it I don't feel like messing with it, plus I just want one of the new Schiit amps. Now that it has an impedance switch it shouldn't have a problem driving any of my phones, including my Grado's (but the old one drove Grados just fine anyway)

For me computer based audio is Sonos via a "connect" through my Rotel RA-12 and through my speakers or HPs. But, a lot of you guys are using high end 1K+ DAC. I'm sure that's the way to go to really make computer based digital audio swing.

I've been collecting and listening to CD's so long. I've got a little over 12,000 tracks from my CD collection digitzed now on a NAS in lossless. Listening to both has become integral.  But, when I really want to hear something well recorded, I still reach for a CD.....

Maybe I'm old school and in a couple of years will drop a couple of K on a DAC and change my mind.....

I'm computer based only, other than an iPod when I'm travelling or hanging about outside. In the car it's Sirius radio for me. I really don't feel my modi, or even my STX sound card or one of my integrated amp choices, is holding me back from great sound DAC wise. All that's needed is a tube amp, hopefully this year! I'd actually love to get two tube setups, for the headphones and for the hi-fi. Basically saying I think the DAC is far less important than most of the rest of the chain

With around 15,000 albums on tap, and a smallish house, digital is the only sensible choice for me, but I have to admit I'd love to have all my cd's back and build a listening room with wall storage, it would look cool and be a great place to hang out. I have kept most of my vinyl but I have less than 100 or so and they've all been needle dropped for actual listening.

Mine too. I'm thankful because my two kids are healthy and happy and I don't have to live with their mother.

Your collection smokes mine! Interesting re-your DAC comments. I felt our old computer was getting bogged down w/ all my music and wife not happy. So-I thought if I could just throw it all on a NAS, keep the PC out of the picture and  that would be a way to go. But, I can't access it on my PC-just my Sonos. Or maybe I can, but I'm not savvy enough to figure it out. No-actually was told my Synology it's basically storage.

Speaking of Joe Walsh there is a you tube of Joe and James Taylor at a crossroads festival that is just over the top.Oh it's Steam roller babe. This tablet won't let me send the you tube over. Or I'm just to senile to figure it out. My better half works nites and sleeps where the computer is. Just catching up Jay that PinkTop concert was soooo good. The percussions were as tight as my grados. Joe B. Just blew my mind, I took my eyes off for a second and I could have sworn Carlos Santana was playing, then Ray Vaugh, then Hendrix then any one of the kings Freddie Albert BB and even a touch of Eric with a twist of Duane allman. No doubt Joe B just keeps getting better and better.

If I were a rich man rich man fa la, la lala I'd buy Jay's GS1000 and a McIntosh. But I am a truly blessed father 6 wonderfull kids, 10 grandkids 1 greatgrandson and one more on the way. And Jay sends us the most wonderful tune. Got coffee and Grados in the morning brews and tunes in the afternoon. Thanks grado fans are the best. And happy fathers day to all and to allthe single moms out there doing both jobs.
