A new (huge) R2R high end DAC in town
Good news for those who wish to experience the Aries Cerat Dac. Make the time to attend the Rocky Mountain Show. Visit JW acoustics room where Joshua has featured the Aries Cerat DAC and AMP for a couple of years now. It is on another level sonica... 
Wolf Audio music servers
Just a quick commendation. At Axpona, the Wolfaudio room featured a Wolf server and Horn system that deserves a Suite for better appreciation. It was shockingly very good despite the poor room conditions.  
Sold speakers you really enjoyed?... But why?
Tan43 One amplifier designer I know sold his Rosinante speakers then bought them back from the guy a few years later. Agree the Rosinante speakers (Gabrielle) are keepers. They have been the pillar for my system for many years. Can not beat 95db e... 
Does hard drive noise in your PC color affect SQ?

Tube Research Labs Latest Dude Preamp
