So Justin, do you think the new batch will be ready by end of May? I am not trying to rush anything. I am perfectly happy waiting as along as it takes - especially for a HeadAmp product - but I would like to know so that I know what I need to do to maintain my emotional state. biggrin.gif

Nope - i'm going to be using the same high grade aluminum I had to special order for the BHSE front panels, and it takes 4 weeks to get it.

SO guys, what DAC are you all using with the GSX and what to you like and/or dislike about the presentation? I am especially a stickler for instrument placement and capability to handle larger orchestral pieces, if you have experience there, I would appreciate you dropping few words on that.

How much are you planing on spending on the DAC?

I am not really looking at a new purchase within next few moths, but long term. And then my threshold depends on how long they continue the furloughs. For now, I am looking at price no object, but really will most likely eventually pull the trigger in the 2000-3000 range.

Gotcha,  I'm caught up in the furlough stuff as well.

 

I was looking at a NOS DAC to compare with the other DACs I have.  The HEX has my interests right now.

I have seen DAC as well. I am not sure what the diff is between NOS and other DACs as far as sound goes. I have read about the technical differences, but not sure how that translates into real life performers. I have come across diehard NOS fans, but I have hears some pretty good up/oversampling dacs, so don't know what to think. So far the PWD is your fav with the GSX, right? OR is it Master7.

Sure, I will be super happy to listen to whatever you bring. You think you'll have the Hex by then? Not sure when it comes out.
