  1. Most of us are very interested, but i believe i speak for my self and no doubt for so many others that would like to know more clearly about these details in order to be more interested
  2. It is very promising indeed
  3. +1
  4. Great!!
  5. Thanks so much nc42acc, i appreciate this! I believe the kind of music that one will want to play on these devices can be a huge point of reference on the purchase choice...and sometimes i give it for granted that when someone says "this DAC is so good" and then i play some rock music thru it and i realize it is not (at least for the kind of music i listen to). So if you have the chance to listen to both with rock music, would be awesome! Thanks again
  6. This is so far what i have been planning in order to build a powerful PC for HQplayer: * Intel 7th Gen i7-7700K Intel Core Desktop Processor * Samsung 850 EVO Solid State Drive (SSD), 500 GB, M.2, 3.5" * Asrock H270M-ITX/ac Intel H270 LGA1151 Mini ITX - (DDR4-SDRAM, DIMM, 2133,2400 MHz, Dual, 4GB,8GB,16GB, 32 GB * ASUS STRIX-GTX1080-A8G-GAMING Graphic Card GeForce GTX 1080 8GB * Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB DDR4 3200MHz memory (DDR4, PC/server, 288-pin DIMM, 4 x 8 GB, Intel X99, Intel Skylake * Corsair SF600 High Performance SFX Power Supply * NZXT S340 - (Full-Tower, PC, 2.5, 3.5", 120, 140 mm, ABS, SECC, 1x 120 mm) Is anything left to take in count, is this config good enough to perform DSD512?
  7. So how is your Built PC, i just got a little bit of idea about building it
  8. Were you deciding between another choice? I am going crazy trying to choose between T+A DAC8 DSD or HOLO SPRING DAC, i also have a Microrendu with a SonicTransporter i5 which i will be selling because in either choice i will need a powerful windows computer to go DSD512: What makes me nuts is the following: T+A DAC8 DSD: "Magical sound when upsampled to DSD512 on HQP, some say better than Chord Dave" HOLO SPRING DAC: "When in NOS mode (both PCM & DSD), it is beautiful sounding" I still hoping someone make a GOOD comparison with both playing face to face in NOS mode and when upsampling to DSD512, there will be my final choice Anyone?
  9. I hope this is a right thread to ask this: What choice do you consider to give better results: 1).- SU-1 with the LPS-1 or 2).- KTE modified SU-1
  10. I am too waiting for that comparo, i am in the same position, keeping the mR and get the Holo or going straight to T+A and get rid of the mR and maybe going for the SOtM sMS-200 instead?, perhaps it even won't need it cause an ISO REGEN is in its way, but definitely a comparo is very urgent!
  11. Jajaja, No problem here, it is in the attitude where it counts...thanks for the suggestions! I have selected 3 choices so far, those are my 3 contenders, of course i will have to wait for the VEGA Gen2 to be available if things go as i am expecting with this device, so maybe i will go first for the NEW OPPO 205, which i was going to get it anyway in the near future for the SACD & 4K capabilities among other things, and use it as a DAC in the meanwhile, while i decide which path i will follow for dedicated REF DAC, who knows maybe i got a surprise to see how good it is the DAC performance in the new 205 HOLO SPRING L3 T+A DAC8 DSD Auralic VEGA GEN2
  12. Is there a Holiday with special prices near to come in the USA? Regards
  13. Hey Ted, I have 3 months without using my Microrendu, so if i understand well once i start listen to my system again do i have to pay $20 bucks to have it upgrade it? I am lost here! Best!
  14. Thank you! I am sure it was a good investment :-)
  15. John, I did not want to be on the way of this thread but actually i am in the same interests of the ISO REGEN and if someone pulls out something that has to do with the ISO REGEN and also suggest something that comes along with it, i thought i could ask if i don't have an idea of what is being suggested, sorry for interrupting the Thread Best regards
