Good to hear about the MS-3. I hope to see you sometime soon in this new year. I do miss Southern MD as well and would love to visit. I owe Bunky a trip down there also.
I still keep my eyes and ears open for a used Hi-Face EVO should I ever need an interface to run with my Non-USB DAC. The EVO is still a hard animal to come across used. That combo worked amazingly well with the MS-1 in my system. Though I am not completely
ignorant of the advances that have been made in the last month, or year, or two.
Oh Darn. I probably am for the most part. I need to spend more time on research. And less on the other hobbies which offer less return.
I would miss the lovingly crafted wooden top cover that graced the first model. Although we can all customize our components. As long as we don't impede cooling or other important functions.
Note: My system pics still have the MS-1 featured and it looks as good as it sounded.
Clearly we miss you and I should plan a trip to FLA (sounds like the late Lou Reed). I still have the Microsoft Wireless Combo
I used with the MS-1 on a shelf here. Good combo. Unless you're like my MAC pal who thinks Bill Gates is the Antichrist.
