  1. Rising For The Moon - Fairport Convention. Vinyl. The Sandy Denny Songs are all magnificent and her voice is - as always - incredible.

  2. Indeed, and threads would be much shorter and apposite if people only commented on what they had actually heard. As an example, I’m never sure whether to despair or laugh when some describe how my speakers sound without having heard them, only based on their limited understanding of how their measurements correlate into the reproduction of music in my room. When it comes to the nuances of DACs, measurements can only go so far and I enjoy reading of folks impressions even if they can only be thought of as opinion and fwiw.

  4. So whats your point...you've never heard a bartok...and if my memory serves me right, you don't judge by reviews, but by measurements. So which measurements have you seen, that have got you so upset, if I may ask...

  5. Exactly what I was thinking, the 1SC's are going nowhere until I'm absolutely sure I've upgraded!

  6. What ever you choose, overlap them for 3 months as I think you sound wedded to the 1SC. I am wedded to Ensemble PA-1 Reference and will never sell mine.

  7. Well, after months and months of persuading my lovely wife to even consider buying a pair of ANE’s, it’s taken her less than a week (and half a bottle of Red this evening) to concede they sound Amazing and that they are here to stay. Job done. So, a lucky person will be owning a lovely pair of ANJ’s in the near future. Roll up, roll up!

  8. Have you tried dsp or drc @tuga Atleast @flak monkeyshared her half boiled attempts at amalgamating the effects of her room. I do not debate that you are very knowledgeable. But if you haven't given it a shot yourselves. Then please give one....so that you can be more condescending of others efforts to improve their sound, having tried atleast once Posts like yours which look, like they are being posted from the imperial library, sitting atop a exhalted seat of all knowingness...without having tried anything in person...would probably discourage others to be open with their trails and experiments. Just my 2 cents....and if you've infact tried DSP or DRC, I would be all ears to know about that

  9. Musical Fidelity X-Act Dac. Utter shite. So bad I still have it in my hi-fi room. I literally couldn't sell it to someone else As I would be unable to sleep from guilt. Anyone want to buy an MF X-Act Dac.....boxed?

  10. Made the move. All very straightforward. All extraneous noise from the bridge now gone but a clear gain on sound quality as the DAC finally has its own socket. A little too harsh for me at present on some recordings but the leap up in separating and clarity is superb. I shall let it settle and then look at either a PhoenixNET or more likely something like an ADOT fibre before sorting out a new amp.

  11. I wouldn't give money to Apple or Amazon even if it meant I had to be restricted to only listening to the physical media I own (plus the digital files I already have), which is quite a lot. The growth of Amazon in any area only feeds that grotesque monster.
