    Mike you have your place here in the forum just like the rest of us. I also feel you have a wealth of information to share in your areas of expertise. Sit back and listen to some of these other guys and learn. Nobody knows everything. And please my friend PLEASE try some decaf coffee.

    Thanks Marty. Will do the move now so that we can continue going after Mike in his rubber room.

    I guess I will be left alone in here with Mike. He hasn't read that book "How to Make New Friends"

    Vast majority of our members arrive at threads by using "New Posts." So no matter where the thread is, it gets read. I am certainly here and will be reporting on this DAC post CES.

    Alternatively we could move Mike's forum under the Digital/DAC main forum instead of member area.

Combined with Hqplayer, I wouldn't doubt it if it could out do the Lampi GG certainly better clocks and measurements.

    Anyways I have no concrete proof of who designed this output stage, but it looks like a real nice design to me.
    Your words not mine.

    I have actually heard several Dacs of all price ranges and nothing so far has displaced the GG as my favorite, not worried in the least about that. Lukasz is damn good in analog…you should hear his amps.

    You said this guy is a DIGITAL expert and we speak of analog output and no, digital expert does not necessarily translate to analog oputput stage expert…. that much should be clear. Of course, its also possible that he is.
