CES 2015 is in the can and Iím disappointed. Iím disappointed that I didnít make it to nearly as many rooms as I wanted to and I didnít spend enough time in the rooms I visited. Without an editorial staff itís impossible to do this show any justice. For the most part, what I saw was great. The new Ravenna based network DAC from Merging Technologies
, the NADAC, looks promising. It has the ability to output from two to sixteen channels and should be priced around $6,000 - $7,000. One of the best sounding rooms I stumbled into during the entire show was that of Nagra
. The Swiss manufacture demonstrated prototype amplifiers that were part of a system featuring the HD DAC and a MacBook Air. The sound was delicate and stayed in my mind throughout the entire four days of CES.
