I remember very well. One of my top 10 films of all time. Christopher Walken's scene was classic.

I couldn't find any further information or comparison regarding the quality of the DAC on the STX.  Will the DAC on my Asus STX sound card be sufficient for my setup (LCD3 and Lyr), or is it a must to get myself a dedicated DAC?  Is there a big jump in sound quality in DAC upgrade? Thanks in a advance for the help.

 


I'm not sure about the STX's DAC. But I used it's rival, the Creative Titanium HD (which is not too different in price) with the V200 and LCD-2. It wasn't bad, and the $1000 Rega only sounded like it was $500 better. The Rega I much prefer with it's better smoothness, soundstage, and detail.
 
Listen yourself and upgrade when you have the money. I highly doubt a tiny DAC like that would be great for an Audeze headphone, but maybe just good.

Just get a Bifrost and be done with it, by all accounts it's a perfect match for the Lyr. And you can save $100 on it by feeding it 24/192 coax from your STX.

PF had a great soundtrack as well, like Reservoir Dogs before it and Jackie Brown after it.

What do other countries use?  I use year-month-day personally so that it lines up in the right order on a computer. 

 
I always use that for dating discographies of the artists I listen to. But as an American. I will never get used to anything other than Month-Day-Year (April 8, 2012). Simple as cheese.

I think YYMMDD make sense, DDMMYY also make sense. And when I think of it, MMDDYY doesn't make sense and is not logical at all.

Just like when people count, 1, 2, 3. Or count down, 3, 2, 1. Well, no body will count like 2, 1, 3 or 2, 3, 1.

I guess that explains what our founding fathers were doing in Philadelphia.
 

 
And our space program.
