New digital front end
I meant the emmlabs Signature upgrades. 
New digital front end
Forget the "upgrades" ... perhaps, now is the time to cash in with so many used emmlabs CDSD/DCC2 up for sale at a good price ! assuming they are in good working order, you will not regret it. 
Bettye LaVette-"I got my own hell to raise"
is it just me, but I was rather underwhelmed by the sound quality of the CD. The vocals sound somewhat closed in.I suspect the vinyl version is better ?

Lamm ML2.1 and Avalon Eidolon ?

Any info on the fun, new Apple product 28/2/06
Yes, you're right... Apple has some nerve to call a special press conference for something as lame as this, plus a new Mac mini with the intel chip.For Steve to suggest his boombox can create huge soundstage and precise imaging and separation etc.... 
phono preamp to use with emm labs dcc2 preamp
