The EL34 amp is smooth and STRONG. REALLY solid!! I got the system running this live feed to the point where it is like being there with everyone at the Fest. There a bit of hotness in the mids with certain notes
but I can gurantee it is not the speakers there it just the nature of placement and where there are nodes at the microphones. Steve did a good job.

I'll be there tomorrow morning. 10:37 AM is the delta time. I'm giving my ZDAC-1 away to one lucky person. I'm also bringing my weird take on music.

You can immediately hear the quality of this direct to disc recording that is playing right now courtesy of John V. John tell us more about this recording and if we might obtain a digital copy. IOW is it on CD? yes a compromise I know Steve but the "rest" of us would love to hear this. Sound Hound did not recognize it.

So far I think I'm hearing a lot of juiced up recordings the likes of which we used to use to sell speakers... I'd like to hear the Zen Triode with a set of speakers commensurate with a system costing maybe three thousand dollars, and the Decware CD player alone without an external DAC... Maybe a redbook Mahler CD... Symphony #4 or #6... That's going to tell me something...  (m.)

I cant be certain there was a DAC in there Mark. The recordings are not juiced up for sure. I know Steve and Bob are pretty much just spinning CD's on a Decware modified TASCAM and a Decware pre-amp and Amplifiers. People have enterd the room spinning their own CDs most of the afternoon into early evening and then they spun the couch and didi the Vinyl setup. They mostly been playing mini TORII and Zen Super a couple time so far and The SE34I.3 "Rachel" as she is known. And the new big monoblocks. The big TORII integrated or TORII MkIII is 3K by itself. I'm thinking MG944 or DM944 with a "Rachel" SE34I.3 you supply source would be a good place to start. But I'll defer to Steve with regards to tight budget total system. The Open Baffles with the TORII MkIII is playing now at 11:08 EST

Right, OK...  To clarify, by 'juiced up' I meant studio stuff, likely worked over in post production... Maybe the close mic-ing is pushing everything forward and hot, I don't know... (m.)

What I've been doing is using Sound Hound app on iPhone and muting the live feed and Streaming at 320 to at least hear what the real thing sounds like and you get an audible comparative from the Decware Feed to actual source material. It aint perfect but its the only way I can enjoy not being there.But IMHO most stuff translates good over the Live feed albeit room ambience at Decware added and some attenuation of bass. funny everything does not tranlate equally well on the feed. Rush sounded thin. It was not when I played it here at home. other stuff sound incredibly good through the feed. The feed cant of course be a defacto auditioning tool. Its a lot of fun for me since
i'm usually there and cant be. Olivia Newton John sound great on the feed with the HDT and the TORIIMKIII
