I absolutely agree.
There have been times I (in a churlish mood?) thought he was way too friendly.
I did drop in a magazine shop on my travels today and looked again at the HiFi Choice review and my first paraphrase in the earlier post was correct. Why a toned down very similiar phrase was used for Stereophile is unknown to me.
I looked in Hi-Fi News
which had a review of the X-Ray DAC which they liked and when used in combination with the X-PSU thought outperformed in some ways the MFidelity Tri-Vista!Anyway...I found the smorgasbord of all X-Ray related reviews
gathered at (big suprise) The Musical Fidelity site itself.
All the print reviews have been scanned and are available in PDF.http://www.musicalfidelity.com/mf/en/News/reviews.jsp
HiFI News, HIFI Choice, HIFI World, Gramaphone.
(What's with those Brits and the word HIFI?!!!)
