Shingles is no laughing matter unless you are a comedian.  You should have gotten the shingles shot.  I did.  Please get well.

It takes a lot of work and money to raise good kids.  Do not expect them to be like you!  You sacrifice a lot to take care of them.  And even at age 5 school is serious business.   So what you are going to be when you grow up...

An engineer, construction.............bum.  Life is what you put into it.  Garbage in garbage out.  I'm out.

Are you guys saying that the claims of the maker of the dac are false?  After 2 years the maker of the dac says that he improved his dac, that it sounds superior to his old dac.  Is this false?  There are many picky dac buyers.  They just got rid of their dac and bought a better sounding one.  Is that delusional?  I will give the benefit of the doubt to the buyer and the dac maker.

A guys buys the Berkeley dac for$16,000 and it is a thread concerning your experience with the Berkeley dac and you state on the thread that competent designed dacs don't matter when it is level matched.  Don't expect the users to agree with you.

sonic, I have read your many post on the subject of DACS.  You know my position on DACS.  And I have told you contentious the subject is.

You are 100% right.  But I still categorically reject your point of view.  These guys buy a dac and they and the makers believe the dac sound better than the competition.  Let me be very very clear.  I disagree with everything you say.  you hear what you hear and nobody can tell you different.  Have a nice day.

If you are a disbeliever in dacs or cables, or wall outlets, create your own thread. If you believe that the Dac claims of the maker or reviewer are hype or snake oil create your own thread.

It is pointless to express your self  here.   All it does is create animosity.  East and West, the two will never meet.  The believers and disbelivers cannot co-exist.  Two objects cannot occupy the same space.  The pro abortion and the anti abortion cannot be in the same room.  They must must separated.

If you are a disbeliver in dacs I cannot agree with you and do not ask me why.  Your explanation fall on deaf ears.  we reject your arguments.  When it comes to cables many believe it is snake oil and now dacs there cannot be a civil discourse on the subject. Create your own thread and you can say what you want.  I will not go on your thread and Say I disagree with everything you say.  This subject is just too controversial to talk about.

compare two watches,a cheap watch tells times as well as a good watch.  compare two dacs, no matter the difference in price they will both sound good.
I will label this the disbelievers in dacs.

The believers in dacs and believers in interconnect cables believe that one product will sound significantly better. 

This is a thread about people who have owned or reviewed the Bottlehead dac.  The makers of this dac believe that it is better than the competition.
The owners believe the bottlehead sounds superior to their previous dac. There may be an owner that thinks this dac is not as good sounding as others. for example the Berkeley DAC.

Me I am neutral about dacs.  I have not done any comparisons on my small budgets.  But I want to hear from the believers in dacs and cables.

If you don't believe in dacs why post on this thread?  No matter how hard you try or how logical you are you will not persuade or convince the believers.

sonic,

I disagree with you.  Guys, buy the Berkeley DAC
15  General Category / Technical discussion / Re: Bottlehead DAC on: June 02, 2015, 01:06:36 PM
Guys,

When is a product overpriced?  When is a product too expensive?  My co-worker owns a BMW.  Is he driving an overpriced too expensive car?  Where do you draw the line in the sand?  Value judgements are a slippery slope.  It can bite you in the butt.  By all means make a judgement, but it is all relative. in the end who cares?  Bill Clinton can buy the most expensive dac in the world.  To him it is not over priced.  I can spend $5,000 on a Hi Fi.  My friend can spend only $100.  My hifi relative to him is overpriced.  So is a $16,000 dac superfluous?  Maybe maybe not.  You got the money buy it or buy something else or make it yourself.  You got your opinions and your set of facts don't expect me to agree with you.  And I don't expect you to agree with me.  Hi Fi is like abortion.  Nobody can agree.  What is the solution?  I don't know.
