I'm receiving a Schiit Gungnir tomorrow. I'll let you know how that pairs.

Can anyone comment on the current lead time on deliveries? Are they still constrained or shipping on/near order?

Was was thinking about a tube DAC..

Hi
 
Engineering:
 
The balanced input assumes a 2 volt input level  which will work well with output operating levels in the +4 to + 6dB reference levels of pro audio gear.

you have to love waking up and seeing a new tube device. I had not seen the Havana DAC before. Very Nice!

I've heard good things. I'd love to try it sometime.

Is that 2 V(RMS)? +6 dBu = 1.55 V(RMS)

Will +6dBV = 2V(RMS) at 0dBFS (full-scale) be the optimal setting and not distort the BHA-1 input stage?

dB always confuses me...

I am guessing that Drew will have one for Demo at RMAF?

This uses my favorite gain tubes (2c51). Very clear and open sound.

Last year Robert from Aphroditecu29.com sent me a Havana balanced DAC to use and show in one of our reginal meets. I was very impressed with the little thing. It sounded really nice, the USB imput worked great and for the price IMO is a nice perfroming piece.

What bags are those that you're using for your headphones?

If any of you folks will be at CANJAM 2012 within the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, we will have the Bryston BDP-1 Digital player and BDA-1 DAC driving the BDH-1 amplifier. Bryston unfortunately had a conflict and could not make the show. But we will be happy to take you on a tour of the sound:) See you guys soon...

Thank You. Drew Baird, P.E. Moon Audio 308 Chrismill Lane Holly Springs, NC 27540 919-649-5018 drew@moon-audio.com http://www.moon-audio.com Moon...
