$140 is pretty stiff if you ask me.

 

It's a boutique cable or an accessory if you will. Also, supporting us supports projects we are woking on;)

Sure, and I probably won't buy it for that reason. But it's a specialist, individually produced item. Those kind of things have high production costs. It ain't coming off a far Eastern assembly line.

My VP was suppose to send the orders in today. I'll know more tomorrow.

Do tell us, I also ordered (the 28th) but have not heard anything yet (besides the PayPal message).

Cardas has been shipping these for us and doing a great job. However, going forward we have ordered inventory and will ship the cables so we can combine them with other shipments and have greater control of the tracking information.

I've had my Microrendu for a couple of months, the LPS1 for a couple of weeks, and the DC-4 cable for a couple of days. I'm happy to be the first to pipe up (I think) with my initial impressions of the new cable, and they are very positive. I'm a big believer in the power of a good power cord, so it wasn't surprising to me. Compared with the stock cable, the soundstage and instrumental imaging were more fully fleshed out and there was more musical nuance and detail. Not subtle at all -- apparent very quickly.

 

To take a step back, the combination of Roon (which I discovered as part of trying out the MRendu), the MRendu, the LPS1 and the DC-4 has really been a coming of age for computer audio, in my very HO. I have the marvelous Acoustic Plan DAC, and my friend recently brought over the companion transport, which is of equivalent quality as a disc spinner. We A/B'd using the spdif/transport input vs. the USB with the MRendu + LPS1 (didn't have the DC 4 yet). It was clear to us that the the USB team sounded decisively better. I don't think that would have been true for any other incarnation of my computer front end. -- David

Fully agree. I have the sonicTransporter i5 in addition to this combination you mentioned, so the full suite of inter-related products. My DC-4 arrived a few days ago and is patiently waiting for the LPS-1 which is due to arrive on Monday.

Very attractive deals right there . . . Too bad I already have an LPS-1 and no need for another, otherwise I might be tempted!

 

We will order more cables after the sale.

I just added some cables into inventory.

Jesus,

Bought an essentials bundle earlier today is it possible to add an extra dc4 cable to this order? (order no. 1345)
