Confessions of a DSD-Aholic, by Ted Brady
One aspect of being able to have review/demo units on oneís system for review (thank you Chris) is that there comes a time when you need to send them back. And although Iíve demoíd dozens of DACs over the years Iíve never really experienced the angst that a return could bring on. Until nowÖ
I really miss the Chord QuteHD. There I said it; I was once a strong man of principle, and now reduced to a weak yearner of days gone by. In reality, I borrowed the Chord for WAY too long a period (as some of you who know me understand that this review is like 4 months late ☺) and I thank the NA distributor, Jay and Katherine Rein of Bluebird Music, for their patienceÖwhich ultimately I tested for too long of a period. I donít blame them at all. ☺ But I do miss that thing.
OK, so why did I have the Chord for so long, and what is it about the thing that I miss? Well, this story ultimately began when I first discovered the DSD format back in September of 2011.
