Eddie came yesterday to my new audio room and had a good listen to the top  
of the line eXD masterpiece. I guess he is prepared to get one while at the  
same time, getting into the world of CAS as well......

The soul of a DAC lies in its decoding circuitry. Would Albert enlighten us on the highlights and techniques employed?

Very handsome chassis, just curious if the base is made out of timber or granite?

The top model from exD continues to captivate every audiophile who happens to drop into my music room……….  
 
 
I think it has little competition even it bears a price tag of $25,000 US!

ON9 and now physically handicapped, I believe my hearing has not been impaired - not yet, I suppose. Just can't wait to find out how Albert's implementation of R-2R resistor ladder network - seemingly the simplest DAC architecture - stacks up sonically against Rob Watts' FPGA and ESS 9038PRO SABRE based varieties.  
 
For those who are not familiar with R-2R, here is R-2R for Dummies:

It's a very successful design indeed since it has grabbed the attention of every passer-by!  
 
The core of lasting appeal, however, rests ultimately in the sonic excellence it has achieved. What does it sound then?  
 
It is, shall I say, a rare synergy of neutrality and musical enchantment. Transformers are known for their neutrality by having no sound of it's own. But then it has the tendency to lose some of the harmonious glamour that keeps you fully engaged.  
 
This exD masterpiece gives you all, nothing less!

Very nice to see that finally this baby came to live!  
 
It was a pleasure for me to meet Albert in Munich and had the chance to audition the Everest DAC, and it sounded even better than the turntable.  
 
All the best from Germany!

It's the first debut of the cost-no-concern DAC from exD in Hong Kong after her virgin appearance in Munich Audio Show 3 weeks ago. List price of this top contender is $25,000 US.  
 
Instead of the 5687 dual triodes in the output section, it is now replaced by two silver-formers. This heavy weight champion comes in 2 chassis and weighing a whopping 70 pounds.  
 
Everything looks and sounds different ----- I wouldn't have thought it possible to beat the little brother so handily. I do not know how to have this complicated thing opened, nor do I have the courage to open it lest anything should go wrong. Just keep wondering what has been done inside to have wrought about this ground breaking advancements.

A session to test two 27D pre-amps made by Dr. King years ago. One is mine and the challenger is from the second hand market. Save and except the volume profile which is software controlled, the 2 amps sounded awfully similar, especially the bass authority which puts many top notch solid state pre-amps to shame.  
 
Rlau is now the proud owner of this second hand 27D which gives him more harmonic fullness that he finds slighly lacking from his faithful Accuphase pre-amp.

"Botticelli, the entry model, sets you back just under HKD 500 grand" - that's way beyond my budget ! 30.7 is a much better choice at ~ $250g's.

Lady on the stereo seat has every potential to become a very dedicated audiophile - she knows about music, quite knowledgeable over audio equipment, but most important of all, she has a pair of good ears.

1Pekingroad.com scavengers and cheapskates, who always want to pick up treasures for a song, will be duly disappointed. Alsyvox products are intended for folks with deep pockets.  
Botticelli, the entry model, sets you back just under HKD 500 grand. Conversation over the phone with Chris at Audio Exotics, Alsyvox's Hong Kong distributor, reveals that they will not budge on price. Nor do they have the slightest intention of soliciting existing Magneplan users, who are deemed to be a "lower-caste".

Lunch followed by home visit to JBL guru of Hong Kong. It's been more than 7 or 8 years since my last visit to Mr. Lai, only to find his system tremendously improved now and ranking certainly among the cream of the crop within audiophile circles of Hongkong.

Truly remarkable sound at rcwy’s 150 foot audio room. It has to be heard to believe!  
 
People usually think that the bigger the room, the bigger the sound stage. In general, however, it is quite the opposite. The core of this issue lies instead in the speaker placement as well as the way the room is fabricated, esp the dimension ratio and the right amount of sound treatment.  
 
Dinner with good friends, old and new, after audio session:-

State-of-the-art ultra low noise oscillator for the discerning. This is the kind of refinement you’ll get with the top model from the exD line of DACs if cost is none of your concern. With this NDK clock, the converter becomes a royal blood with manners virtually beyond reproach!

Quite incidentally, Nelson of YS Audio brought his friends to listen to my CAS, just in time to audition the latest upgrade of the now renowned eXD DAC. This new version virtually blew my old eXD away into obscurity!
