New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.


I've heard that the Apex converts DSD to PCM before spitting out an analog signal. I'm not usually one to spread rumors, so I will ask if anyone knows whether or not this is true.....

In gerneral, it seems to me Apex's niche is to bring you technology cheap, and I do mean cheap vs. inexpensive. Also note there is a difference between technology and good technology - technololgy being simply a capability whereas good technology is capability delivered with a certain quality standard. I'm confused about the market for an el-cheapo universal player. While their universal player will allow you to play all formats, why would anyone spend more money on high-resolution software just to listen to it on inferior equipment? I guess it boils down to that while individuals can be very smart, people are often pretty dumb.

Yes, I have owned a piece of Apex equipment in the past (it was a gift, honestly!), and although I was impressed at the time that the player worked at all for the price, it was indeed a piece.

Happy Hacking,
