It's July 20. Linky
I'm set with the M51 (waiting for the Schiit statement DAC), but I am curious to hear how the DM compares to the field.
i'll keep the event in mind especially if you get a BMC PureDAC to demo. knowing myself though, would be a stretch for me to go to LA just for this event, especially since it appears that my rig has plateaued for the near future ...
2nd day with the Source. probably burned it in for 4 hours+ so far. running USB (a USB cord shipped with the Source) connect to Mac - didn't have to install any drivers as I'm running OS 10.6.8.
the DM Source through my Grados sounds straightforward and analytic yet engaging and sonically "crisp". rather revealing as i've heard sound artifacts in songs that i've never hear before - as to be expected from a good DAC.
unit has a tidy little footprint at 12 3/4" x 8" x 1 5/8"
