You're ready to roll Acetone on a stick or SD card.

3-4 week lead time on the unit. I will receive mine after the 15th of Feb.

Toys! Got to have Toys!    Cheers, Stone

I'm interested in tubes and tube tester, if I can afford.

If that SE84ZS does indeed have issues, I'd be happy to take it, issues and all if the price is low enough.  :)


LonelyRaven, send me a PM. I have one person interested in the tester already, and possibly tubes.

I'd like to reserve the large items for service members, active or retired.

That is a hell of an offer, I hope there is a service man/woman who could take you up on that. As the son of a Vietnam Vet its always great to see and hear about someone helping out the people that serve our country.

Well done

JD

So sorry about your Mom. I have been there. Hang in there, my friend. A wonderful woman goes a long way. And while I don't have quite the separation that I know you have had, it won't be quite as wonderful as it could be until we are finally together in the same place.

I have the Oppo BDP-105 - I splurged on it back when I was getting back into audio a year and a half ago.

If the Oppo HA-1 sounds like the BDP-105, I feel it's a great DAC, but sounds a little etched on the high end compared ot the Teac (I've put my Oppo up against Steve's TEAC at the Decware shop). While I didn't feel one was *better* then th eother, the TEAC was certainly smoother sounding. Steve said he'd flat out take the TEAC.

Palomino's Chord sounds quite good and is for sure smoother then my Oppo. I think the TEAC is more neutral, the Chord is smoother.

I can't speak to soundstage, as the only soundstage I've really liked at Decware (lately) was when Steve was playing Master Tapes on the Otari reel to reel player.

Knowing Steve, and seeing what he's leaning towards lately - if this new DSD device can sound more tape like; I wouldn't hesitate to add that to my want list.

I've got the DirectStream DAC, so I'm heavily invested (and still paying it off). I think it does things none of the other DAC in the sub-$4000 range do. I would have to put it up against Steve's modified unit to get an idea of what I like better. My intuition is that the PS Audio way of handling everything in the DSD realm is right - but then, execution of a theory can make or break it.
