    OPPO PM-1 / PM-2 Loaner Program

    I'm in Canada and interested in the PM-1. I agree to the terms & conditions. Thanks.

    A nice new DAC2 from Benchmark showing at RMAF

    A big +1 on this. I had a DAC-1 PRE for years while other DAC's came and went and a DAC-1 in another system as well and the DAC-2 is better to my ears as well.

    WOO-HOOOO... WA7 "fireflies"!!!

    Well, I've placed my order for the WA7. After hearing it with my K701's (among others like the Beyer T1 I mentioned previously) at SSI I've been thinking that the WA7 needs to be mine, and so it shall be. Stephen Mejias of Stereophile came away from the WA7/K701 combo at the New York Audio Show...

      Nice setup, but I would suggest looking at other brands of power conditioners more in line with the quality of your other components. This is what the inside of an Isotek "power conditioner" looks like:

    Anedio D2 DAC release

    I ordered platinum wedding rings that were delivered by Fedex to a completely wrong address. Luckily the person who received them returned them to me. Not before opening and checking out a package that clearly didn't belong to her, but I was thankful to get them back. When I complained to Fedex...

    Benchmark DAC1 now available with USB

    You could also just buy y splitters if you don't want to use RCA and XLR outputs. I have used these in the past, though I don;t recall them costing this much:   http://www.takefiveaudio.com/mall/shopexd.asp?id=287

    YULONG's new U18 USB 24/192 Async digital Interface

    I wiped my laptop and installed Windows 8 but the problem persists. So far the U18 has worked every time I have unplugged and re-plugged the USB cable though.

    I just messaged them and was sent a link and the necessary info for the order page.

    Anedio D2 DAC release

    I sold my Benchmark DAC-1 PRE on Thursday and ordered the D2 on Friday. It shipped out within a few hours and I'm really looking forward to it getting here. A nice Christmas gift to myself.   I was really considering the Benchmark DAC2, but part of the appeal of the D2 was it's price. I sold...

    YULONG's new U18 USB 24/192 Async digital Interface

    I got mine a few days ago. I have a problem where when I turn the laptop on it doesn't recognize the U18 until I unplug the USB cable and plug it back in. Has anyone else experienced this?   Also, when playing files with different bit-depths or bit rates is it necessary to manually go into...

    Anedio D2 DAC release

    The thing is that I didn't email them - I submitted the message through their website, so unless their own website's messages are being filtered out I don't know how they wouldn't have received the message. In any event I've messaged them again. I would call but there is no phone number as far...

    If you talked to Ashley at AVI it might be possible to buy 2 slaves with only the amplification built in, but it probably wouldn't save you a great deal of money and you'd still need an external DAC and pre-amp. You would also lose the remote control functionality which isn't easy to replace on...

    Thanks, the desk is the poorly named but highly functional Ikea Jerker and the kitchen speakers are indeed AVI ADM 9T's with newer RS woofers.

    Thanks! It's a DAC-1 PRE and Dell U2711. I tend to go through spurts listening to one or the other but probably listen to the speakers more often.

    YULONG's new U18 USB 24/192 Async digital Interface

    It's not really about money for me. If I thought it would make a significant difference I would buy it, but the system this is going in is in the kitchen and keeping the box count down is a priority.
