Has Anyone Auditioned an LKS MH-DA004 DAC?

Who is the WORST Audio Shop?
Natural Sound is very dependent on the salesperson. There is at least one or two pushy salespeople there who I have seen flipflop position on different pieces of equipment, or try to upsell customers in a very obvious way (think cables). At times ... 
Any Users of the NAD C 568 CD Player?
@jafant What an asinine and uninformed statement to make.I spend a lot of time working supply chain in China and sourcing for US companies. There are lots of very good manufacturing companies, equal to and in some cases better than the West. So ca...
