I actually have a 6/28 arrival date.

Besides the passive review at first...I will only take out my current Digital element and provide details of the rest of my chain...and offer some initial impressions... .  Fun stuff.... .

She's now truckin' from Chi town...out for delivery tomorrow. So, as you can imagine...I cleared my calendar for tomorrow.

I will be using SPDIF Illuminati D-60 in to it via Transport. I will eventually pump some hi-rez PCM in via USB. All about the Redbook to start.

Some Hi-rez PCM will have to happen. You don't buy a new Mustang GT 5.0 V8 and not drive it above 90 mph when you can.

Ping me if you need some sources for pure DSD.

Here is a good place to start.

This is certainly an encouraging statement.

"Thanks Joe. It makes the whole system so responsive. Every system change is easily heard. But I am most impressed with the red-book playback. Good ole CD's really have more quality than I ever thought. And I am running direct to my VAC Phi 200. I didn't like running direct at first. But after a break-in at @ 400 hours, direct was better. And they will buy it back if it doesn't agree with your system !! How can ya lose"??

Oh I hope it arrives in the early aftenroon!

I'm sitting and waiting too, but in my case I'm sitting and waiting for the lovely Lucinda to arrive and start my day off in a great direction. After the year I've had, I'm glad I'm waiting for her, about as glad as you are to be waiting for FedEx.

I'm just finally getting a handle on the sound of my system after the new HR-1s have seasoned, the newest (among the last) Mk III has really come into its own, and the tube-rolling I have done has settled down. It sounds so good that the DS has to put its best foot forward. I know you feel the same way!

Hi Lon, hope everything is well with the arrival of your gal yesterday.

FedEx arrived at 1:30 yesterday! I had it in my System by 3pm sharp.

I listened to it from 3 till 11:45 pm. The first 4 hours I was in and out of the room. It was all over the place... . In the 5th an 6th hour I started to hear what people on Audioshark and Gordon an others are hearing/enjoying over on the PS Audio Forum. Totally relaxed with details...even more....with depth. Oh and yes, I played a song that just has the drummer hammering the upper inner bell of the ride cymbal and it was the best I've ever heard. The overall sound of a band complete with decaying percussion is so sweet.

I am obviously a ways from having this burned in too. Furthermore, the first Firmware upgrade became available June 19th. I will wait a few hundred hours before doing so (to SD card download-for those unfamiliar then to unit). ...See Firmware PS Audio thread DS Firmware update created/posted by Paul.

A lot of people have mixed feelings about hi-res if you read through the original DS thread starting in March (starting with post #268 page 9).

However, no disappointment (from anyone on any Forum)with decoding redbook via SPDIF.

I wanted to convey more initial impressions...but I have to get going. I can't listen today but I will be in the Listening Room tomorrow! -Stone

Oh PS, I've had the NAD 51 DAC in last year and the PWT with PWD MkII an I've had Audio Alchemy's best gear for 19 years via premium 12s. The DS just doesn't sound different....it is an improvement in Redbook...with much more nuance to come....I expect.

Hey, I just deleted a thread/link for free financing at Music Direct. This is against the no ad policy. So, I don't think it was appropriate.

Yes, you can do 36 months same as cash through July 3rd. I mention, because I remember LR mentioned if he could get a good financing deal.... . You probably new that...but we're all so busy...maybe you missed it (if you don't get their sound bites newsletter). A good opportunity...and they only offer it periodically.

I also like the units they are shipping = virgin stock....so you can hear and burn in....then add the new Firmware upgrade just posted June 19th.

Peace, an everyone have a great 4th!   -Stone
