  1. MQA is Vaporware

    @witchdoctor posts here to promote his studio and talks about himself in third person.
  2. Tim Cook on Mac Mini

    A recent Tim Cook quote: I'm glad you love Mac mini. We love it too. Our customers have found so many creative and interesting uses for Mac mini. While it is not the time to share any details, we do plan for Mac mini to be an important part of our product line going forward.
  3. Allo Sparky USBridge

    It seems kind of confusing to call this a new USBridge if it's USB in/out rather than ethernet input.
  4. My Pink Faun STREAMER 2:12 Dual PC Build

    Your system is light years ahead of most. Don't even think about it. Just tell us how beautiful it sounds once you have it all set up at home. Congratulations!
  5. What does TC mean? Do you have any details about the switch? There's nothing at that website except Contact Us.
  6. OK some of the difference might just be attributable to USB vs AES, right? As you say, you need to revisit this once the dCS NB has USB output. I guess you listened to the Rossini without the Rossini Master Clock? It's just a wee bit more money.
  7. I know you enjoy major orchestral pieces. How did the dCS NB compare to the trifecta in busy passages when nearly all the instruments are playing?
  8. Here's another beauty, a new vulnerability in RSA encryption keys. https://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/3019326/roca-rsa-encryption-key-flaw-puts-millions-of-devices-at-risk

    Exactly. I doubt Netflix ultra HD is even close to Blu-Ray. Best Buy sells tons of 4K TV sets despite the lack of content.

    Yes, I'm really looking forward to A+ on Windows. I don't plan to replace my mid-2012 MBP with another Apple product, but I want to continue using A+. I don't know about that YE2017 availability date. Nothing ever comes out on schedule.

    Wow that is really sad. What happened to the spirit of innovation? Despite guys like ML trying to characterize us as unhappy and angry, I think we are vibrant and curious and excited about discovery. That's why we get upset with a bad attitude like this.
  12. Yes I saw that comment from May. So I'm curious about the source of @JJ Braham's information that these switches have sCLK-EX and sCLK-OCX10 clocks in them. It doesn't make sense.
  13. Did you get those prices from an SOtM rep at RMAF? Any info about when they would be available? It's kind of interesting how those prices closely match AQVOX AQ-Switch-8 (398 euros) and AQ-Switch-SE (798 euros).
  14. I think @elan120 explained that it isn't applicable to motherboard clocks because So I think I gave you the correct answer earlier. I'll leave this to @elan120 who has clearly done some research with SOtM.
  15. Thanks. That is a better explanation and agrees with what @lmitche said.
