Re: Cyrus QXR Upgrade

i understand why cyrus want people to send things back, what the many people , for whom this is simple, don’t realise is that there are many who haven’t mastered the skills to do this properly, but think they have.
Cyrus don’t want screw ups who then blame cyrus in forums like this

Re: New One HD or used 8 Qx DAC

Is the one hd asynchronous USB?
if it is, and it’s a usb connection from computer that might tip you
one HD will use less lecy
but you can’t go wrong with 8qx

Re: Chord Qutest

I'm tempted to upgrade my 2Qute to either the Qutest or the Hugo TT2. Huge price difference between those two, obviously. Just waiting for an opportunity to trial them both in my system and compare.
