Home Digital Drive

Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

RE: In Praise Of The DirectStream

I didn't think a SL-1200 could hit $10,000! Was that $1000 for the TT and $4500 each for the cartridge and phono preamp ;-)

I still have my KAB modified SL1200mk2 along with a couple modest cartridges including the Dynavector DV-20X H and a SoundSmith retipped Benz Glider SL.

I ditched vinyl a few years ago for high quality digital playback including my own ripped CD collection, hi-res downloads, and now mostly streaming Tidal and Qobuz.

My KAB Technics SL-1200mk2 & SoundSmith retipped Benz. Packed away in storage.
