Home Entertainment Magazine Does Computer Audio
In Home Entertainment Magazine's December 2008 issue Peter Roth writes Computer Audio 101: Revving Up A New Spin For CD Playback
. In the article Peter covers some basics for those very new to the game. He also marches up the high-end ladder quite a ways with the Weiss Minerva and the Wavelength Audio Cosecant. Having talked to Peter about the article several months ago I was hoping he would give CA
a nod in the article and he sure did. Roth says, "After picking the brains of several industry gurus and surveying on-point forums e.g. ComputerAudiophile.com and AudioAsylum.com..." It's great to see the site mentioned in print.
As I mentioned Peter covers the Minerva and Cosecant DACs. He also touches on the problems with CD players, the pros of iTunes, and the PS Audio DLIII, Benchmark DAC1 USB
, and the Apogee Duet. The article is not a review of the components in a traditional sense, but Peter does speak highly of the Minerva and Cosecant. There is also a little side note about using a nice touchscreen monitor with a music server. For a specific price and model number check out the article. To read the complete story you'll need to pick up a copy of the Magazine in print for now.
