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

RE: In Praise Of The DirectStream

Clarified below but yeah I meant the 1200G which is $4K and then cart & upper level Tom Evans & ASR phono preamps.

As to carts tho IMO the Audio Technica LOMCs for around $500 are ALMOST as good as anything. (I know that comment will just prove I can't hear to many and maybe I can't.)

The 1200G was the best table I ever had, better than the best Rega (my previous favorite brand) and the giant Basis I had that probably cost $20K new. If I do ever get a TT again I will buy another. That is a completely stock 1200G, nothing changed. What is different about it is speed stability is just completely perfect; even the most expensive belt tables can't do that. It had no other weaknesses such as noise like many direct drive tables. They really did that one right. Now, I'm sure the older restored 1200g are respectable also.

Still not motivated, esp. when I listen to my DSD128 vinyl rips or - better yet - Direct DSD recordings from Native DSD and elsewhere.
