This will ensure a very stable power supply, however for the ultimate goal of a silent running power supply, the BC507BA has a 1,000,000uF (1 million micro Farad) additional battery power supply."

1 million uf. That's A LOT. That's more than what can be found inside of the finest power amps. Does that much even make sense? biggrin.gif
How long does that battery take to charge?!? tongue.gif

That's something you share with many audiophiles. Unfortunately, it is a tendency that helps manufacturers ask ridiculous prices. I hope you are aware of that....

I know what u mean.and as u can imagine i did my homework...

 

but did u see their excellent dac put inside a pvc tube? Price is almost unbelievable cheap! It looks horrible but it must sound very good!  U only pay for the inside! I love that attitude! I also prefer to pay for function, soundquality and builtquality and reliability above esthetics and physical attraction..They even sell amps without faceplates to save money...

 

and i read a few reviews bout their products and all say they are reasonable priced for what they offer..but i also know..custommade handmade quality products tend to be a bit more expensive then the standard brands in the market who only have standard models.

 

when i get my amp/dac (ofcourse when the price is acceptable..my budget is around 2000euro) i will open a new thread about it..this thread is aboutthe x sabre and i dont wanna go to deep into offtopic infos

 

will keep u updated then for the ones interested..ps..they also make a very good dac for a acceptable price.

I see only the Parasound DAC?
post #325 of 972

They were talking about the zdac pretty recently here so that's what I assume what was meant in the review being up.
