So who has one and what level...Platinum vs. Diamond ? Is the diamond worth the extra $$$ ? Looking for impressions opinions. Does anyone know if hi-rez pcm burned to DVD using the UDF 1.5 or later format/protocall be playable on the MSB Universal transport (This is how I play these files on my PS Audio Perfect Wav) ? TIA
Okay, done some more research by the time this post made moderator approval. I am sure it will play my DVD' looking for impressions from those who own or who have heard MSB. BabyBear has already chimed in on his all out assault thread.
I heard the MSB set up at the Newport Audio Show and it was, hands down, the finest digital I heard at the show. Little did I know it was a CD playing and not some kind of streaming. It took only two notes and the start of Harry Connick singing and I was hooked. It was the cleanest, most natural sounding digital playback I've heard, anywhere.
(I haven't heard a lot though so grain of salt and all)

I couldn't tell you if it was the Diamond or Platinum but it had the Femto clock in it. If I could afford that set up (the DAC and transport) I would be sorely tempted. I know it's not the latest thing to spring up but it does sound beautiful and it can play lots of different formatted discs and stream as well.

Good luck in your search,
All the best,
I'm a 95% vinyl guy...The MSB stack is $40K, the Pass Labs XS-150 Dual chassis mono-blocks will be around the same if I trade in my XA-100.5's. I can't do both right now. Leaning towards the amps....trying to be sane here.
That's a hell of a lot of money for what is deemed the best, for now.
Let sanity prevail.

All the best,

I own a DAC IV Signature. It has put an end to the merry go round of source units as now I have no need to upgrade my Digital source. You should give it a listen. I Highly recommmend you hear it with a MSB trasport however.
