System edited: Starting pc audio journey. Beginning with mac mini into Mf 1008 dac via USB. Rick Walker mods have vastly improved dac and am surprised at the quality of rebook cd. Next step is to compare higher Rez through firewie to spdif.
Jim, Nope, the Audio Physic Spark III's became very bright to my ear after a year or so, so I sold them. The Moon I-5 was so desired by others that I let it go as well. I have happily settled into a set up of Dynaudio Special 25's and a Musical Fidelity Tri Vista 300 amp. Still spinning 'em on the Nottingham Interspace with Interspace arm and Dynavector 20x5. I think the Dyns are holding up so well because of the softdome tweeter, warn and smooth to my ear with a HUGH sound stage like the Audio Physic Spark III's had. I have also done some major acoustic treatments to the room. I got rid of the echo and the first reflection, give the listening experience a big boost. Keep in touch let me know if you have anything on your short list vinyl wise, I will be out on the garage/estate sale circuit this summer I will be happy to keep my eye out for you. Martin
Good to hear from you. I think we talked about the EAR phono pres last year. It looks like you got one . . . what do you think? Yet another great day/night to stay inside and listen to . . . Cat Power right now. Treat your ears well- peace.
