I want to introduce myself as a new NOS1 USB DAC owner. I apologize first and say that I have been a lurker on this forum for some time now (years actually
) The computer knowledge needed to make XXhighend work properly has been something I genuinely struggle with. You could say it was quite intimidating for me. My thanks go out to all you regulars and your enthusiasm about the Phasure and XXhighend. You did not even know but you were keeping me interested with your enthusiasm and your commitment to the best possible SQ. That my friends is something we share.
I finally faced my computer phobias (especially after reading Peter was building computers
.... It has already been ordered). I have just purchased what I once suspected and now firmly believe is the best DAC currently available anywhere. I have not even had the NOS1 for a week in my system; what's left of it that is...no more preamp, or DAD AX24 DAC, or RME soundcard and Antelope Isochrone word clock
and a soon to be replaced computer
. With Peter's help I got it going with my old computer. It is not running perfect but it is without a doubt the best sound I have ever heard from my system. I cannot get over the incredible musicality. It is the single biggest improvement and change I have ever heard in my system including speaker upgrades. My only regret was waiting as long as I did.
While I am waiting for the new computer I will continue to run 0.9z-61c. Thanks to all you beta testers out there. Get out all the bugs
and my new computer will have 0.9z-705 optimized. Life is good
I am checking out everybody's signature and looking for XXhighend configurations. If anybody has any recommendations, I'm all ears. Thanks again.
