|In the future, I am sure high end manufactuers will give us the same tweaky, visual and tactile happiness that we enjoy with exotic digital and analogue source devices.|
In the meantime, however, one of the things that really disappoints me about PC audio is the cheesey, plasticky feel of surfing through iTunes on a computer, with my Tympanis, ARC and Mark Levinson eyeing me suspiciously from the background.
Indeed, there are times when I almost feel guilty, as if I were pouring cheap wine into a beautiful glass.
So I am wondering: using technology available TODAY, what would you use to upgrade the look and the feel of a hard drive based system, using UNCOMPRESSED files, delivered to the DAC of your choice?
A metal keyboard? laser mouse?
A sexy, HD capable monitor sitting on a coffee table to surf through your digital library?
Wireless technology to increase the - wow this is cool -factor for PC based audio?
Apple Mac G5? (Not a good answer IMO.)
Airport type wireless device? Or USB based device?
Thank you for your ideas.
