Exogal is a new company created by the "old" Wadia guys . . . the original founders of Wadia who are back in the business out of the Twin Cities. The Comet is their first introduction - with great reviews. The DAC with dedicated power supply retails at around $3,000. The US distributer is Underwoodhifi. But there are other retailers. They are about to release a dedicated amplifier called the Ion (it will only work with the Comet). Hope this helps.
Jason and Tyson, Kudos for all your efforts...really!Looking at your photos of the Wyred/KEF room I'm wondering if you were in fact listening to class D. Looks like Wyred is resurrecting or resuscitating SST.http://www.sst.audio/sst-launch-press-release
johzel, Are you at RMAF? If so are you doing a show report ala CAF?
For the first time, I see that RMAF have given out Press awards for exhibitors. https://www.audiofest.net/awards/The Exocal Comet DAC is one of them.
Tyson - What a bullshit idea. Awards for DACs and stuff? There's absolutely no way you can make any comparisons of anything except entire systems, and even with that, the majority of what you hear is the speakers and the room. Idiocy.
Tyson’s Notes Vaughan and Wavelength Audio RoomGeneral Room Notes – I’m always hesitant to hit rooms with plasma tweeters because the tweeters are ALWAYS so far and away better than the rest of the system that they tend to stick out like sore thumbs. Or maybe stick out like shiny gold in a sea of sludge. Music – listening to the stock playlist from the room. Really good integration and the mids are keeping up with the tweeters rather well. The quasi-line array of 3 inch drivers match up quite nicely. No CD player so looks like we are stuck with the canned music, so hard to make precise judgments. But it does sound good, that’s easily discerned even on unfamiliar music. These sound almost like OB speakers they are so spacious in their presentation. Tracks switched form Allison Kraus to Shostakovich and the bass is kicking! Nice power and control. Hard to believe the tubes are generating that much oomph. Of course Wavelength Audio tube gear is just stellar. Jason’s NotesDynamic, amazing treble clarity and air. Superb sound staging and imaging without a doubt one of the best I've heard at the show. Just a great easy to listen to yet bold system. Pretty enamored with this setup! Top five easy.
