Mary J, Blige - "Slow down".
AV-710 --> Grado SR 225.
I've implanted the Chaintech thingy today into my GFs computer, did cost me an hour for the setup.The "back stereo" line out definately isn't capable of driving the Grados properly, I need an additional amp.
I have a dream :
Iron dreamer suddenly discovers that the Benchmark DAC1 is overprized voodoo, a new Sony player sounds(slightly modded, indeed) better. Much better. It's, as usual, a difference like day and night.
A few days later a sale stampede begins, lots of head-fiers are trying to get rid of the old FOTM.
This way I get another Benchmark for 500 $.
