If $1k can sound good like 99% of $20k, I wouldn't have bought $20k equipment.
You'd be surprised.
Winner take all bet....hypothetical of course.
Connect a $1k product [digital front end] to your system along side your $20k [digital front end]. Let 10 people do a DBT, if 6 or more pick the $1k product you loose your $20k product.
Since this isn't in my field to talk about, I'll end our discussion here.
I got too excited...
The prospect of winning a $20k digital front end and all....
I totally get that. I used to get too excited thinking my modded $1k DAC can sound as good as those highend CD players. :D
Have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend.
Let me go try to calm down.
You should try modding your $20k gear.
I'm sure you can find something that could be improved.
I bet I could...first thing I'd do is change those transformers to R-Core.
I did. But I changed from switching power supply to linear power supply using ultra low-noise toroidal transformer though. ;)
And that made it sound better?
Do you also put ketchup on Kobe beef?
I've never heard a Toroidal that wouldn't make a good door stop. Who makes them?
It sounds better of course.
I didn't put ketchup on Kobe beef.
I don't know.
You modded something with Toroidals and you don't know who made them? Did you buy them off of Ebay or something?
Impossible....share the secret, I might want to try one...that is if I can afford it.
I don't know Toroidal that wouldn't make a good door stop. For my transport and DAC, my technician friend used toroidal transformer from Talema at that time.
