I expected to see the AVA DAC recommendations as I see you guys on the forums here a lot.
They are on my radar, but I'm not too inspired by them at the moment. nyc_paramedic:
I don't have any room treatments at the moment. I did try them with little success. I was told that I did too little and too few panels to make a difference. I guess I have to agree with that. However, I think my room sounds great without them. Nuance has been to my home and when he reads this thread, he may think I'm crazy for wanting any difference in sound; he may be right.
Regardless, my listening room is my living room. My wife let me try some room treatments, but apparently to get enough of a change, I have to have too many panels. This is just not going to work for my wife or myself for matter. Maybe it's a mistake on my part, but I'm not going to turn my room into a listening room over anything else.
Having stated of that, I also don't think my room as enough issues to merit sound treatments. My frequency response is incredibly good. The HT2-TLs really measure great. I think I can discern the difference in sound of the room and the speakers. I honest believe that the sound I want to change is from my source components, not the room.Larkston Zinaspic:
I purchased my PS Audio DLIII DAC because I had intended to have Cullin mod it to level 3 or 4. Rick says I should go for level for with my setup, and he offered me a decent price to mod it. I have read NOTHING but great things about Rick's upgrades to this DAC. I'm just concerned that it's still a good amount of money and I'm not certain what I'll get for that money.
Unfortunately, I do liver VERY far away from you as I'm in Wisconsin. If I do decide to mod the DLIII, I will certain share my thoughts. Big Red Machine:
I was not expecting your post at all as I completely expected you to recommend the Cullin mod. Don't you still run this DAC?
I did a little research on the Audio Sector DAC, but I want to do a little more before accepting your generous offer. I really would love to just throw another DAC into my setup and compare the sound to what I have now if nothing else but to further the amount of DACs I've listened to thus far. The Audio Sector would make the 2nd external DAC I've ever heard!! golfugh:
I was bouncing around the forums and saw your FS post. Had I seen it, I would have most likely picked up the DAC from you to have been able to compare to my stock one. I could have sold the DAC I didn't want. Opportunity missed.
I've seen you post on AVS regarding the DLIII level 4 and I know you liked it. It's not hard to find people who love the level 4 DAC.
