      It will be very interesting to hear your thoughts on the new PS Audio "Ultra" series components- the "Perfect Wave Transport (PWT)" and Ultralink- which will be shown at RMAF. PS has a very interesting roadmap, including a server with built-in ripping drive, plus network bridges that will fit inside either the PWT or DAC. They certainly seem to have a very progressive view of a complete one-manufacturer solution. We can all debate the benefits vs. the more generic computer-based solutions, but there certainly is some cool stuff going on here.<br />
      Enjoy the show!<br />

      Ditto the new PS Audio digital products. Ultralink DAC and PWT. Gather news about the Digital Lens while you're there.<br />

      Also, curious about the new Bel Canto amplifiers. 50% increase in price from original Ref1000 to Ref1000 MkII. Interested to know if equally significant improvement in performance. Nice touch, factory upgrade to MKII available.

      I'm sure you won't, but please don't forget the Proton! Gordon said he was probably going to release it in Denver.
