    While we're at this (crossfeed topic), I am listening now to The Trinity Session from Cowboy Junkies. This is a very special, minimalistic recording made in one day, when the band gathered around a single mike in the Holy Trinity church in Toronto. They were utterly inspired that day and their music would be mesmerizing even listened through a tin can…

    But, through DAVE / Abyss with the help of crossfeed, you are delivered with one of those really moving experiences, where all the gear and its underlying technology seem to disappear and you are left fully exposed not only to the music, but to the replay of an event, made of time, space, sound, living beings and their emotions and talent.

    A great recording. Do you have the original version or the Revisited one?
  3. simorag
    I have the original, but I think I'll get the Revisited as well!

    +1 great albums... normally after the 'Junkies' I put on a album by Cat Power (Jukebox), it hasn't got that 'chamber' feel of the Trinity-Sessions but it fits for late-night listening... think I'll listen to 'Over the Rhine -Good Dog, Bad Dog now... followed by the Junkies, life is good.

    Are there any reviews yet comparing the Focal Utopia, HEKV2, HEKse and Final D8000? The only other consideration would be the STAX SR-009 but not sure I want to introduce a tube amp into the chain when using my CHORD DAVE. M-scaler with DAVE could be a game changer regarding these comparisons though!

    Perfect Pursuits review system includes the Luxman c700u preamp. Who knows if he had reached the same conclusion if he had used the TOTL c900u..

    Well! My conventional speakers sounded like an electrostatic speakers when the Qutest paired with the c1000f.

    If i could sell my pre-power at a reasonable price, I will go for HMS/TT2 directly -》speakers.

    Electrostatic speakers are much more transparent than conventional speakers.

    However, this might not be a good example because Qutest can't directly drive the speakers unless static output, be it 1v, 2v or 3v.

    Hi Dave owners,

    Are any of you aware when these new "digital amps" that have been spoken about will come out? I'm not even sure how a digital amp works. I'm considering the Etude, but might be better to wait? I have no clue.

    Thanks for the help.

    Hi I believe that John Frank's posted earlier in this forum words to the effect that digital amps will be quite some time, I think the inference was a few years. I am also curious to try the etude, I have also been told that over the next year all of chords current range will move to the etude' s topology.

    Neat. thanks for the reply :)

    Hey guys would there be a reason for an iem to sound really bad through an adapter? It was an all metal fairly cheap adapter. I was using an Andromeda and it sounded atrocious for some reason. Like the highs and the lows were massively reduced. I remember reading a while back that could be related to the adapter being all metal and having contact with the chassis? Is there anything to that, does anyone have a good recommendation for 3.5mm to 1/4" adapter for DAVE?

    It shouldn't be the DAVE, a Hugo 2 sounds fine with an Andro...
