Actually, very sexy IMO. But the price blink.gif

 

Agreed that it looks fantastic.  Given that it's an AD & DA and preamp (and usually Antelope does preamp right -- as in all-analog) so I'm not really jarred by the $10K price tag (if that's even true)

 

Even on my Antelope, the baseline Silver model, they use an all-analog volume/preamp unlike most (all?) of the competition at this price range.

Benchmark DAC-1 HDR and others have all analog volume at a lower price point.

Well, good thing I said unlike "most."

 

Also, the $200 NFB-12 has analog volume control but I was talking about this bracket or level in particular.

Yeah... so it turns out this is $40,000.

Was just coming to report the same thing. LOL. Oh well, certainly looks nice in the picture.

This is the kind of thing I'd expect the Russian guy from the DirectTV ads to own.

Insane.  I wonder if it needs the $1K Voltikus PSU too.  tongue.gif

That's pretty awesome.  I'm a fan of the Old Spice and K-Swiss ads too.  The K-Swiss Kenny Powers MFCEO ad had me cracking up.

 

Old Spice - I'm on a horse

 

Old Spice - Sea captain

Let the judgments begin........

This hobby should have taught you that not everybody lives on the same budget. Hell, there are some here that would buy two so they'd have a backup.

Santa comes to mind.

Santa wouldn't have to buy it. He would just get the elves to make it :)
