I am interested in Mario's opinions as well anybody else with more experience than myself. We all have different ears, brains & musical preferences so I will only do what appeals to me. I should go visit Steve one day with a few bits of my gear & see how things sound. I'm mid way 'tween Sydney n Brisso in the bush, beautiful lifestyle but audio wasteland

Hey Crazi, I'm 25kms west of Kempsey.....almost tempted to hitch a ride but have tickets to the Bellingen Global carnival. Great live music is pretty uncommon around here too (but it is the home of Slim Dusty....lol). Let me know what sweetness you indulge in with Steve.

I guess heading to Steven's with cdp & speakers & a bottle of red (or 3) would be illuminating.

After a family holiday to Nepal in December I'll have to get on down to the Blue Mountains. If I canceled the holiday that would pay for a whole new killer system but then my family would disown me.....what to do? What to do?????mmmmm

the killer can transport you anywhere,  just turn the lights off and let the music take you there.   :D
It's all about the music,, not the equipment.

You can go for holiday anytime, but the killerDAC is not anything like commercial offer, as Steven says he's very lucky if he can build 1 every month.
Not all that matters can be measured, not all that can be measured matters.

LOL!  Good health and safety for family always come first!  For me anyway :)

In saying that, I will make sure my killerDAC is one of the items I have with me to the grave!

May I ask if anyone has done any of the mods here http://www.lampizator.eu/LAMPIZATOR/TRANSPORT/FIKUS/Fikustransport.html

Seems a little unconventional, esp the SPDIF output mod with a tube!!!!

Worth reading though, seems he has his head on regarding what he hears..........

Still looking forward to the modding sessions on the CD94.......and everything else.....

As longs as it can serve up the 'bits' to the DAC accurately and the DAC can accurately clock the samples, then the transport 'should' have no impact on the sound quality.  I have read scientific studies that state that 250ms is the threshold of audibility with regards to jitter.

You do realize that 250ms is ONE QUARTER OF A SECOND don't you. If your source was set up to pause for 250ms every second and you can't hear it, you must be pretty deaf.
