• Next Stop Denver Then Warsaw Poland

    This is a great time of year to be a computer audiophile. Both new audio and new computer components are traditionally released between now and CES in January. I'm awaiting arrival of two computer components for C.A.P.S. v3 testing. The release date of these components has been pushed back a bit by the manufacturers. I feel like a little kid full of excitement waiting for these items. I'm also very excited to attend Rocky Mountain Audiofest this week in Denver, CO. In addition to seeing and hearing some new components I'll be conducting two seminars in the Aspen Amphitheater. A DVD Audio and Blu-ray Ripping session as well as my favorite Computer Audio Q&A session. A few weeks after RMAF I'll be flying to Warsaw, Poland. I've been invited to present two computer audio seminars at the 16th annual Audio Show Poland's largest exhibition of audio-video equipment and home theater. The best part will certainly be meeting CA readers at RMAF this week and next month in Poland. It's truly a great time to be a computer audiophile.

      Chris,

      If you can, try to catch a listen to the KEF X300A active speakers with built-in DAC. Only one review out there so far and I'm anxious to hear some other opinions.

      c.a.p.s 3.0? I cannot wait to see what you have up your sleeve for 3.0. I cannot even imagine what you plan to do/change to gain any sort of performance, but whatever it is I know it's going to be good.

      Chris,

      Do you have any sort of ETA yet for C.A.P.S. v3? or is it still premature to project?
