    Surprise! I wondered if you guys beat people in the streets for it, like taliban! I didn't realize it was only that subforum, rather than all of them there. Makes more sense now, thanks for clearing it up!

    Can anybody remember the guys name and website who mounts his dacs bare circuit board on pine boards? He had some scope traces of this but I simply cannot remember! The traces showed 'pre ringing' of the waveforms... Ah, found it. Mother of Tone - Time or Band Then over here you got...

    NOS DAC - Marketing BS?

    It's difficult to describe, it's not pace rythym timing, more the sound of breath in a voice whispers more like how you hear it, cohesive on a very fine level. Not just the voices, tho. Attacks and decays are very real sounding. 'Correctly Reproduced'. Sounds good, frequency response...

    I may be an idiot, or not. Either way I am not insulted, I know which sounds better to me. Salesmen don't disturb me. My motivation was to communicate the reasons for what I hear as I understand them. I don't think I believe you, Dan that no 'jitter' is caused by the delay in the filter, but do...

    People might try experimenting with those wrap around the interconnect ferrites like those that come on computer cables, some have two halves that clip together. Or find some surplus toroid cores and run the output cables through them. Might roll off some of the distortion on the scope, dunno...

    Power supplies are kind of voodoo in the way they work, a resistor would slow down your supply, but would cool down your regs. This guy (a trade member here[Thanks, man!]) has a 'Power Supply Parameter Estimator' that I've a lot learned from, plugging different values in, reading the helpful...
