It destroyed them, embarrassed them, and gave them a good schooling to boot. Music sounded frighteningly obviously comparatively more refined, more spacious, and more natural. End of story. I cannot imagine anyone in this universe who listens to music as an activity unto itself making the same comparison and not hearing the difference." - Michael Lavorgna( Audiostream.com) To purchase, arrange for a home trial or for more info click here
I'm thinking of purchasing a Melco server in the next few months but just had a thought. I currently EQ music via J River and with the Melco, or other servers, you don't go through a computer with J River so is there a way to apply EQ in the realtime runstream? I don't want to record it into files since the EQ is just for headphone listening. I just purchased a Ayre Codex so don't have a option of a headphone amp with EQ. The best solution world be software running inside the Melco runstream.
