Dave, I gotta say your pics are awesome - they give the sense of what it's like to be at the show better than anything else I've seen. Nice work
I have a very modest digital source and am rarely envious of higher end digital, but this has changed my mind. There IS something significantly better and I want it. Now if only I can convince MSB they should give me 90% off we're all set. I heard tracks that were better than all but the best of the best analog, and even then the differences were not major. I'd take this DAC over the same $ invested in analog anyday.
Same here. I have an iFi iDSD Micro which I love. But the Auralic Vega is clearly better than my Micro. And the MSB is an even larger step up over the Vega. Those guys at MSB are doing great work. Hella expensive, too.
I know... it's too bad it's so expensive ($40k), but that DAC is on a whole 'nother level vs anything else I've heard. The Select II with mono power supplies (>$100k) has got to be even more amazing.I too lament some of the high prices in audio these days but the folks willing to pay these prices are a large part of what drives progress and innovation. They allow designers to work at a cost-no-object level, supporting arts and tech innovation. It seems the MSB DAC products are a result of this, so it's not all bad news. Eventually we will be able to enjoy the sound as it trickles down or the current SOTA de-values on the used market.
Dave,Thanks for all the great pictures and your observations. Could not make it out this year, but planning on doing CAS in November. Want to listen to Daedalus Apollo's from Lou. NB
Hi Dave, I was very glad to read your review regarding the RMAF 2017. I also think that the resonators made a great improvement to the Troy Audio Helenas Loudspeakers. As for how you can try them, what do you have in mind? I'm sure that after you try them you´ll get amazed at what they do in your audio set-up. Also, sorry for the slow response but I just came across this review. Please make contact with me so we can work out a solution.
From what I read the MSB Reference at Rocky mountain also had the $1500 usb module and the $10,000 Femto 33 clock.....so we are talking $51,500! It should sound great for that money!
