Sending a quick note to wish Peter and family, and the extended "Phasure"  family a wonderful Christmas/holiday: health, happiness, and the great joy of music.  I have constantly been amazed at this community, quite unique in the world of "high-end" audio.

Thanks to everyone who has made this forum what it is, and looking forward to more wondrous innovation ahead.

Ha !

From this small family all the best wishes to the extended family and that the upcoming year may bring again more than only a few software updates (which latter should arrive even sooner than next year).

Christmas time is always a measure for how on (or off) par the sound now is; those oldies usually sound better each year and for me the comparison is an objective A-B because of the long time between it, each year. Well, I recall last Christmas (2017) as a moment when it suddenly did not work out for the better. I never found out why and just forgot about it when Christmas was over. This 2018 Christmas Eve, however, surpassed all other Eves by miles and without any doubt. New since last year are Mach III, Lush^2 and Blaxius^2. It is unheard how all sounds so very "normal", never mind from 60s or 50s. Whoa, the "100 years old" starts to be in sight. Happy

How can it actually happen that it goes on and on.

Now back to that software ...  F*cking Windows !

Happy Christmas everybody !
