this is good news. i'll finally get to hear some computer-based set-ups that i've always wanted to.
however, as i (still) have my music collection on cds (haven't ripped any files from cd to any computer hard drive yet), i'm very interested to hear the ps audio directstream dac connected between a cdp>integrated amp. i hope this set-up would be possible.
as far as what i can bring, i'll have an spl phonitor available in case anyone is interested. (as far as cables for the phonitor, i have one pair of neutrik xlr "in" to rca "out"). anyone who wants to hear the phonitor in a different configuration which might require different cable connections, then you're of course welcome to bring your own cables and have at it.
once this meet is confirmed, i might go whole hog and bring my cdp, my integrated and my phones (along with some music on cd that i'm very familiar with) in order to really isolate the ps audio dac. this way, i'll be very familiar with the sound characteristics of everything else in the chain EXCEPT the ps audio dac. it'll be the only true, accurate way to really judge this piece.
this'll be a fun way for me to spend this coming sat. afternoon. and i'm sure i'll learn a lot, too. especially by being able to talk to folks face-to-face who have much more experience with music on computer servers and dacs. (and the different combinations between the two).
hope this can happen, and i hope more people will chime in and commit to this.
looking foreward to it.
