PS Audio FPGA dac
They’re working on Direct Stream mkII - possibly releasing before the end of the year. I think the updates are done with the original.  
Audio envy - dang!
I just saw this today - the SP-12. Cap is always upgrading the cables.   
The sound quality from DACs - is it all the same?
Is it just me or are most of the DACs subtle in their differences? I can hear the difference between an Ares II, Merason Frerot, Border Patrol, etc but it’s not fundamentally changing that much of my experience with the music. I’ll go back to my B... 
Anticables speaker wire have no plastic jacket/insulation?
Old thread, but wanted to see if there are any other anticables owners out there that went from their level 3 to level 5 speaker wire. The level 3 has amazing clarity but it’s a bit too much with treble - perhaps a little bright. Just wondering i... 
Tellurium Q speaker cables
So I’ve had black II cables from Tellurium - they were ok. Definitely committed less issues than most cables.    I learned about EWA from some of the UK forums where members had upgraded to EWA from Ultra Black and Black Diamond series. If you’r... 
Tellurium Q speaker cables
Honestly, try EWA cables at abcaudio.biz Colin, who designed the Tellurium Q cables, went on to form EWA with Alan Brown. His designs are amazing and for the money, they are quite the bargain. FWIW  
Well I joined the Silversmith FIDELIUM Speaker cable club today
@deludedaudiophile  I really wasn’t intending to open a can worms here. Jeff has a really great cable, I’ll definitely purchase his interconnects and his upcoming reference cable if that does indeed happen. Have you listened to Fidelium? It’s def...

@mglik what cable brand?  
Well I joined the Silversmith FIDELIUM Speaker cable club today
@fthompson251  they definitely will improve a bit, my experience was the bass came in more, music flowed even better, but it was less than 100 hrs easy.  
Well I joined the Silversmith FIDELIUM Speaker cable club today
Jeff is a great guy. He’ll talk to anyone that’s willing about their setup and how to improve it. I have had his cables now twice in my system and I still wonder what the resistance /inductance is of these although that is supposedly not relevant... 
Audio envy - dang!
Has anyone gone from the NV-9 to NV-11 speaker cables? Are the new ones actual ribbons or the strands are now running parallel?   Thanks  
EWA cables - ABCAudio
Nice! I got the ls-25/ic-25 last month and just got the ls-40, later this year or next Alan was saying they’re supposed to have a new pair of reference cables. These are really special and pretty much destroy everything else I’ve listened to. Dri... 
Which complete set of cables to try out?
@habermas ok interesting, I’ll take a look at Ensemble. I am looking forward to your thoughts on how Driade stacks up. My Flow speaker cables are supposed to ship tomorrow, so hoping to have them late next week. I have the ls-40 speaker cable fro... 
Which complete set of cables to try out?
Zavfino is excellent.    I’ll throw out another name - EWA cables. These are also fantastic in a way I did not expect, bass output is next level. I have only tried their speaker cable and interconnects. They’ve been in my system for about a month... 
Kinki Studio EX-M1
@nonoise Do you still have the Kinki integrated? I just placed an order recently, but wanted to see if you’ve kept on with it or found anything else more engaging to listen to.   thanks
