Thanks!

Larry did a wonderful job with the MS-1 write-up and his experiences along the way!

Nice write up in Dagogo.  I think he summed up in a sentence what took me about a page to write in the opening post... "the MS-1 bettering the modded Sony in virtually all sonic attributes".  I don't have the Sony, but it left a well respected Virtue Piano in the dust. 

RMAF in just a couple of days!!!! :banana piano:

Made it to the RMAF hotel.  Will demo the MS-1 in the ACA room today and will see what happens.

Hugh,
The room was ready for you when I just stopped by. 

Will leave soon to go get Chris at the airport.  Will stop by before I leave.

For anyone interested there is HAL MS-1 setup as the front end with the new CIAudio Transient MKII DAC in the Angel City Audio room number 442.  Was making some very nice music when left.  There is also a MAC Mini in the room if folks want to listen to both. 

Thanks goes to Hugh for letting me set it up and giving a try for the show!

Hope folks stop by and give the setup a listen.  The Melody gear and ACA speakers were sounding very good with the front end.

Yes, I look forward to hearing it and would like to hear both.  Any show special on the MS-1?   :D

The HAL MS-1 and 1TB drive combo package is available for $800.00 at RMAF only!  Collect it on Sunday afternoon after the show.

I have placed HAL business cards with the unit with contact info.   

Only one is available at this price, so first come is first served.   :D

Another RMAF has come to a close and a wonderful time visiting with old and new friends.

Wanted to thank Hugh of Angel City Audio for the big opportunity to show the MS-1 in his room with all the help from Michael, Nhan and Tim.  I think the setup was sounding better this year due to to many reasons!

Hope to see everyone again next year!

Just received a very nice email from Gary Dodd of Dodd Audio.  He took the MS-1 that I built for RMAF home to demo in his system.  He is running it from battery power.

His only comment was "YOU ARE NOT GETTING IT BACK!"   :thumb:

Wow, good job Rich!  Glad it went well for you and the MS-1 at the show.   Hate I missed it.

I'm not surprised.  I've told Gary several times how I've been impressed with the sound of mine- and since I'm running lots of Dodd gear in my system, I was sure that the results would transfer to his rig.  It's a winner as far as sound quality and it's easy to use... a great combination.

Delivered a MS-1 setup with an M2Tech Evo to pansixt at the MAAC meeting today at r.wasserstrom's place. 

His setup with the original QUAD ESL57's and REL sub was a very nice system.   

We also talked about connecting Rich's DAC via USB to his PC Music Server.  He is going to give it a try once he gets his USB2 cable.

Looking forward to his comments on the setup with his DAC.
