    Decware CSP3

    Hey, I'm doing alright. It's almost seven years since I've moved to Ohio from Texas and I've still got my Dad to focus on and enjoy time with, and I have a lovely wife who I try to spoil, and I'm beginning to downsize my massive disc collection which is a project for the next few years. I don't...

    Decware CSP3

    Mr. H, glad to see you posting (I haven't visited here in a while). Happy New Year and hope all is well. I am still using the Taboo Mk III that I obtained from you, though the LCD-2 are no longer working. The Decware headphone amps are wonderful in my systems.

    Decware CSP3

    No sorry, no experience with either of those. Since '97 I have used only Decware pre-amplification and headphone amps (CSP2, CSP2+, CSP3-25, Taboo Mk III and Taboo Mk IV).

    LCD-2 and LCD-3 Owners - which aftermarket cable do you use?

    I have an LCD-2 and with the XLR connection to my Decware Taboo Mk III, Tabloo Mk IV and CSP3-25th anniversary I have used the stock cables, a cable I bought made with Cardas 4-24 wire, a Moon Audio Silver Dragon, and a set of ArcticCables made with UPOCC copper. I was using the Moon Audio most...

    Decware CSP3

    I'm using a CSP3 with 25th Anniversary mods and really enjoying it with my Sennheiser HD-800S headphones. Mine is further modified in that the input gain adjustment stage is bypassed with a glass resistor that Steve had been experimenting with. This means that I have the amp gain at a very low...

    Arctic Cables Discussion Thread

    I too ordered a UPOCC 3 meter cable for my Sennheiser HD800S. I also have a 3 meter UPOCC cable from ArcticCables for my Audeze LCD-2 headphones. I loved these so much that I ordered the cable for the HD800S. The new versions I have are very thin and flexible, with a fabric covering. The sound...

    DECWARE HAS RELEASED A DAC!! ZDAC-1

    In so many ways, each day now is a new frontier!   I'm continuing to enjoy this great DAC. I'm listening to an AIR cd right now and the percussion is so FAST!

    DECWARE HAS RELEASED A DAC!! ZDAC-1

    When I read Draca's post I thought he was referring to the speculation about the quality of the amp based on the board stuffed in China for Decware.   I know why the concern began, but I've known Decware products for over a dozen years and one thing that distinguishes them is the build...

    DECWARE HAS RELEASED A DAC!! ZDAC-1

    I can't help with any personal experience of those chips and their differences. There's a lot of info on the web though. Yesterday I'd have to say the SCD-XA5400ES won out over the ZDAC by a few hairs. When I'd compare, toggling back and forth with the ZBox, the Sony just had more warmth and...

    DECWARE HAS RELEASED A DAC!! ZDAC-1

    Still all quiet both on my order and on feedback from others who may have the unit now.

    DECWARE HAS RELEASED A DAC!! ZDAC-1

    Can't wait to hear this. Hopefully there will be some more units in user hands soon and perhaps another "review" or two.

    DECWARE HAS RELEASED A DAC!! ZDAC-1

    There is the low res version of the internal guts of the ZDAC-1 on this page in the Decware forums: Forums - The DECWARE ZEN DAC-1 is HERE! I have one on order. I've been buying Decware components since 1998. Yes, this may not be "anything special" in some ways, but I do know that Steve...
