If they make it look like a TT I'd be happier

Chord DAVE v Bel Canto 3.7 would be interesting even if the rest of my kit is not up to it!

It's an enthusiast with it in his back pack.
So more of a kind offer. It's not quite as commercial as it appears.

Ah, get it. That's a relief, there's more than enough already.

Ok so we forget, can't do A/B etc. BUT. I heard the DAVE at a Show into KEF REF 1's and it was in the top 5 of any system I have heard ( inc High end Wilson/Magico/Deviliet etc). On my 'to die for' list.

I've followed your DAC journey with great interest. SimonJ used to be the king of DAC changes but the mantle has been passed on! It sounds as if you've found that magic upgrade that comes along every now and again. Enjoy.
