i may be totally wrong here, but i have the feeling he was being just as sarcastic as you were, and it was you who misunderstood him... either way, good times...

when vinyl was THE only choice except for AM radio, reel to reel, and 8 track tape.....I spent so many freaking hours and dollars trying to get rid of the hiss, static, pops and ticks it wasnt funny.

 

Anti static mats, anti tracking pressure, phase linear 3000 secret electronics hiss removal circuits, watching my snow plow shure stylus plow thru the analog cuts on a record...watching large pieces of vinyl being worn out...having the source deteriorate from the first play....

 

but ah...it sounded so good, so pure....so esoteric...

 

Yeah right....

 

LOL

oh yeah remember discwasher.....and record duster brushes....oh my...

^ Yeah... all of this is not for me, I learned the hard way. Couldn't get rid of IGD. Tried different cartridges. Just too fussy...so I sold my sl-1210mk2, preamp...

 

 

 

Still got all my vinyls though. :D

Can anyone share the comparing in term of  sound signature between O2 and Tralucent T1?

Which one has more clarity, more detail, more depth, wider sound stage?

Yes, you were totally wrong.

and I bought odac+o2 like new for 150aud :P....and i did in a hearbeat :">

The point of the O2 is it doesn't have a sound signature. Whatever "sound" the T1 has is caused by distortion, whether it's a high output impedance or something else.

 

An amp can't magically improve sound stage, either. It can probably mess up the sound stage by being a severely bad product, or it can do DSP stuff such as emulating 3D, (like the ICan) but it can't "improve" soundstage just by being an amp.

Combo is okay.  Nothing special.  It gets me by.  Saving up for Bifrost/Lyr again.

Can the ODAC play DSD files? I was interested in a binaural DSD album but I don't even think I can properly play it with the ODAC.

The O2 + Odac combo, it is okay.  Not as special as everyone made out to be.  I bought it thinking it was a great value but for $300 new w/shipping but it leaves me wanting. I 'd rather save up and go all out for a nice combo, Uber-Bifrost/Lyr from Schiit, which I use to have but sold to experiment.  Now that is about $1k with nice tubes but a better investment, imo.

Good to know. Let me know about your impressions of that final combo when you get it and how it compares with the O2 + ODAC.

Wanting for what I wonder? I know it isn't as aesthetically pleasing as all the Schiit gear buttt....
