Btw, the MD10 is deceptively small. I did not realize that until I saw your XM4 sitting next to it.

All in all, glad you've got a DAC back in the rig. I want sexi LED on E-MU :/.

It's external DVD drive sized.

But it weighs six pounds.

I've been listening to it all night and most of today.

Really sounding better.

It was really bright at first, almost 'tinkly' sounding in it's crispness ... but it's evening out the more I play it.

The spatials are amazing! I've never looked around my room for sounds like this ... keep thinking the sounds are coming from over there or behind me or ... MAN the X-fi is a FLAT FLAT sounding source. Never knew it till I listened to this.

I'm currently discussing some interconnect lovelies with our resident guru ... will most likely be ordering a nice RCA to mini soon ... for now I'm using a 20 dollar "matrix" cable from Fry's.

Fun stuff.

Back to the listening now.



(BTW: If I do indeed end up keeping it (Pacific Valve has a great swap program, for checking out other gear) ... I'm *definitely* going to mirror polish the front aluminum panel. Will look SICK!. Yes. I'm going to lap my DAC!)

Alternate route -

Sell XM4, commission Jacob for a CKKIII or M^3 (which I might add, will probably bring out a lot more of your RS1 than the portable has done so, despite how competent it may be), and get some nice RCA's instead.

Too bad my suggestions always force the person to spend a couple hundred more .

Btw, lapped MD10 would be hawt.

Sweet looking amp.

A very very informative 9 minutes if, like myself, you'd like to do some mods involving soldering but have never soldered:

Fantastic video.

I feel like I just graduated from my first semester of electronics!

for the RS1's I'd say that an Aikedo is in order, or for less a Millet Max will do nicely. Pair either with a Buffalo or Opus DAC and you've got a killer setup in an all-in one solution. add a source selector and you won't need anything else

So with a Millet build, you can have both the DAC board and amp board in the same enclosure?

yep, I have a 12"x12" enclosure that's more than big enough for everything I'm putting in it.
Millet Max, blackgates diamond buffers
OptiVol volume control instead of the standard blue
TPA Darwin Source Selector
USB DAC

Right now I'm undecided between the Opus USB module and the Alien DAC.
I'd really love to put an Opus or Buffalo in there, but it'll add $150-300 to the price. There is more than enough room for the DAC boards and a Torrid power source though.
