    dCS Bartok

    I think you need to go back and do some hunting on the interwebs. Vivaldi is totl and a full stack approaches $100k. I had a Batok for a month and then moved to a Rossini+Master Clock. It has now replaced a Linn KDS in my 2 channel system. One of the best steamer/dacs I have ever heard

    dCS Bartok

    I demoed the Bartok twice, the last time at CanJam NY 2020. I also was able to spend a significant amount of time at the Chord booth speaking with Rob and demoing the TT2 and DAVE. I demoed Chord as well at CanJam 2019. I was impressed enough with the Bartok to order the HA version and it was...

    The Stax Thread III

    I do not know why there is all this controversy over Icelandic prices. It really is quite simple. One decides what they want to spend and they then go out and find a vendor at their price point to spend it with. Why does there need to be any denigrating of Birgir's prices. Do people know...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    The last time I looked at the Rockbox tool was 3 years ago when I changed the region on my UK WM1Z to remove the volume cap. One thing I just noticed in the Rockbox documentation. It appears to indicate that high gain is not available in the J region. Is this true? Second - I changed my...

    dCS Bartok

    Congrats I am 1/2 way through my 6 week wait. Headphone version in Black. I was told silver could have been a little quicker. There appears to be large demand for the Bartok and DCS in general if one includes the Rossini which benefited from a large software 2.0 update. On my main forum gig...

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    Followed instructions and under an old MacBook Pro running Mojave it "appears" I was able to do it. The problem is - how do I know if I was successful? If I look at the 1Z in settings the firmware reads 3.02. Will it always read 3.02 regardless of which firmware you play around with?

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    So asking again my question #2 Are these firmware updates primarily geared for iem’s or do headphone users also benefit (Utopia)?

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    I have been following these firmware updates since inception however I have not yet taken the plunge as my Axios headphone cables are at Kimber being terminated. Two questions: 1) Are most people using these firmware updates with iem's and not actually headphones (ie in my case Utopias)? Are...

    dCS Bartok

    Nice to see this thread gaining traction. A big thank you to Pale Rider for his detailed impressions of the DCS lineup. I come at the Bartok from a different angle and point of view. My primary listening is via my 2 channel system with headphones as a side hobby. I joined Headfi back in 2003...

    CanJam NYC 2020 Impressions Thread (February 15-16, 2020)

    If anyone makes it into the DCS suite can they let me know which isolation platforms they are using underneath the BARTOK? I forgot the name

    The Stax Thread III

    Stax was bought and is owned by Edifier - a huge Chinese company. My understanding is that it is a pet project of the owner who loves Stax. I don't think they are going anywhere

    SONY NW-WM1Z / WM1A

    No offence or disrespect to the modders however I have to admit I subscribe to Sony's philosophy. I always found it hard to believe that individual headfi modders think they are better equipped and have more knowledge than Sony's enormous staff of technical engineers to bring out more...
