Round 2 -- CLANG!!!HeadfiReply2Boze090704a
Boze, et al --
I’ve been so busy that I just saw your chat about round 2! I’m too tired at 2:50am to say much, but I would love to hear 010 via your Cary/Meitner rig.
Before rushing back to it (tho’ soon would be great), should there be more thought and consideration about possible components in the chain for best synergy with 010s? Cary/Meitner sounds promising and I’ll bet we’re (mostly all) eager to hear it. I wonder if jpelg has had enuf of them for awhile. I expect they’re just not his type.
The 010s are going to be hard to tame. It’s going to take an intelligent approach and careful investigation to solve its challenges. It seems to have great potential, and it’s extremely sensitive and revealing. As I noted in Nik’s thread in the headphones forum, I find it odd that the Sony engineers who created this marvelous thing haven’t offered an “ideal” chain to show it at its best. To roll out their new baby with just the Sony SACD’s headphone output is a weird way to convince its prospective audience/clientele. I’d love to hear from the designers/engineers . . . and other system experts/manufacturers . . . who may be working on solutions.
