The Party

An excellent ensemble piece with great performances. The always good Timothy Spall, Kristin Scott Thomas, Emily Mortimer, Bruno Ganz.
Filmed in b/w all the action takes place in just a short time on one evening in one house. Best film I have seen this year.

Re: Steamers / Renderers what is worth checking out ?

A couple of guys at the Wam show were using raspberry pi3 b +. I2s wired directly in the dddac. They seemed very happy with the results and it sounded great to me.

Re: Hi Res (again)

It seems to me that a direct comparison of the same track in 16/44.1 wav, 24/96 flac, dfs 5.6Mhz, dfs 11.2 MHz. would help to see if you can tell the difference and decide if it is worth paying for.

AND YOU CAN! For FREE.

Re: The new Wigwam venue.

Missed the cu get-together in sunbeams room as I was babysitting some rooms. Had a great weekend, though. Some great systems (some too loud for me!). Loved the 80's Revox speakers in room 120.
Great to meet you sunbeam!

Wonderful, Paul.

They really sound great, and look perfect as if they were matched by Tannoy themselves.

May I ask, why do I have to log in every two or three days, when I ask the site to remember me?

My W4S dac2v2 is £2299 new. Worth a compare with Mytek? Dave at Elite could possibly lend you both for home dem.

Re: In need of a new DAC

The Wyred4Sound dac2v2 uses the ESS Sabre 9028 and the SE version the 9038. I am very happy indeed with my dac2v2 (also from Elite Audio). I use J River and have used the usb input on the dac for everything up to dsd256. It's really good and I think worthy of audition too. If you get near Heathrow, ...
