I can't imagine that if it doesn't go out today, it will tomorrow. 

 

They had a fair number of people ready to ship

Ok, let's add some sauce to try and ease the waiting. How about speakers, folks? Do we know whether the Taboo MK3 will honestly drive the DM945, or even better, the MG944? If I want something that works in a smallish living room, what are some of the options out there?

 

I am of course going to be using a good preamp, likely the one in my Burson Conductor or part of a new DAC.

No problem with the DM945....I have a pair on order too..... I loved the sound of the combo with the CSP2+ as the Pre-amp.

Is a preamp necessary to drive speakers or can you just use Source > DAC > Taboo > Speakers?

Steve, you could do that too. The Taboo does have the capacity to be an Integrated amp.

Decisions, decisions...

Would the MG944 be worthwhile as well? Did anyone get the chance to hear them?

My floorstanding Polks are not very efficient and the taboo drives them to a louder volume than I really care to listen to them. I ran it without the sub from the CSP pre-out and I was still satisfied. The MG944s are way more efficient than my Polk Monitor 60s. They will get loud enough to fill a pretty good sized room with quality sound I would imagine. Now, when I get the Pendragons..... The walls will probably shake.

I haven't tried it without the CSP yet though. I may experiment for you.

The MG944's work great too...Steve mentioned they may not be available for too much longer.

No sleep for you tonight then. That's what happened to me with the HD800s,  but I won't admit it to anyone!
