Help with audio alchemy ddp1
Now it appears I have another problem: the DPA-1 turns on (display is functional) but I get no sound. I checked all the connections and they seem secure/tight but the amp itself never becomes warm to the touch after being on. Might anybody have a ... 
Help with audio alchemy ddp1
Just an update: as it turned out, my DDP-1 unit needed to be returned to the factory for repair. Unlike roip1, however, my experience with Peter and Richard at the ELAC factory has been excellent. Both were very responsive and Richard has been exc...

Bargain Basement, Giant Killing DACs for PC Audio
Have a listen to Tommy O'Brien's DAC DACs - I have the DAC DAC 1 HS model playing with VAC Musicblocs and ESL-57s and have been very impressed by its musicality and how emotionally engaging it is.  
A DAC that can make digital sound analog?
For any future posters making recommendations, it would be very useful if you also listed what days you've heard in the same system as your recommended product. Tough to make much of simple "this one's the best" statements without any context (or...

willco, what's your reason for selling? 
Best multi channel amp and processor good for 2 channel listening.
A little off topic but auxinput, what would be the earlier generation Marantz processors that you would recommend that have the quality/voicing characteristics of the Marantz AV8805?
