    Geek Pulse: Geek desktop DAC/AMP by Light Harmonics

    I don't see the evidence many, let alone most or all, Xfis are shipping. "A few" might be the best descriptor at this point. Don't mean to emphasize my situation, but as a yardstick if they haven't got to my order placed 12 minutes into the first night of the first campaign there's likely high...

    Audeze EL-8: The EL-8 is a must-hear at CES 2015

      Yep, the price was too high for that lousy signature.

    $350CAD HERUS: Asynchronous USB Audio 2.0, 24bit 352.8Ks/S, DXD and DSD64/128, 2.4VRMS Headphone DAC

    Any other impressions (especially with Senns)? Trying to decide between this and the Geek. Draws for both. Like the pedigree and 1/4" of the Herus. Geek versions have the power.

    Perfect Wave DAC Owner Unite

      Quote:   Probably stating the obvious, but the Bridge doesn't see a running instance of Slim/Squeeze Center/Server? My other streaming devices see the running server and can play back supported formats. Use it to play back WAVs on GoogleTV.

    Perfect Wave DAC Owner Unite

    Seems the I2S  v. NativeX SQ debate seems a bit cloudy, but as the Bridge is now most of the cost of the mkII upgrade, given the hypothetical situation of going just one direction, any words of advice? Streaming would most likely be majority case of input (either the SBTouch or Bridge), but who...

    Long awaited Smyth SVS Realiser NOW AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

    Quote: Hey Kiritz, as nice as the Oppo is at playing discs, even with networking it's a pretty poor computer. I'd hate to upgrade and loose useful content. I'm currently using a Sony/GoogleTV box as a feeder. Works for most services and WAV playback, but not ideal.      Quote...

    Long awaited Smyth SVS Realiser NOW AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

    For those looking to solve a similar situation as I - feeding the Realiser digitally from an audio source (Squeezebox, Airport Express, laptop, CDP, etc.), the Monoprice DVI & S/PDIF Digital Coax/Optical Toslink Audio to HDMI Converter does not work. Guessing it needs a video signal too, but...

    Long awaited Smyth SVS Realiser NOW AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

    I've read about 2/3rds of this lengthy thread, so apologies if this has been answered already. There appears to be several users who bypass/do not use the Realiser for 2 channel playback (not to mention HDMI being the only digital in). This would be my sole use. I'm intrigued by 2 channel...

    HIFIMAN HE-400 Planar Headphones Pre-order

    So are we going to make it through CES (and the preorder period) without a HD400 review?
