Hey guys!

I'm Dan's friend and I'm from Pittsburgh, too.

Dan has helped me with his 'golden ears' over the years to fine-tune my system.
My priority is 2ch vinyl. I have a MMF-7 turntable with a Pro-Ject Speed Box, AT150MLX Cartridge feeding a Heavily Modified Carver C-19 Hybrid Pre-Amp with integral Tube Phono section attenuated by a Rotel RB-1090 Amp. My speakers are "the Twins" - a Jon Marsh design, 68 Liter Towers I built myself.

After hearing files of digital hi-res recordings made from vinyl that Dan downloaded on his hard drive and ran thru his system I am convinced that I can obtain 99% of the sound quality of my LPís by ripping them to my hard drive. We have already experimented with my system and ripped some vinyl tracks, but I donít have a good DAC for playback.

We are both very interested in this DAC.

Welcome to kd forum regarding our dac it only does 16bit using tda1541 so high rez files are out of the question until we find a chip which does 24/192 and delivers music like the tda1541.
still discovering the link between electronics and audio reproduction.so much to learn and so little time
