    the difference in textural nuance might lead one to think 'tube-like' with the smoother/glossed over presentation. but it's a matter of the context.

    this morning I removed the Select II Powerbase from the system, packed it up and loaded it in the car. it will ship today to MSB in Watsonville.

    the second powerbase is built and the boards for my case will be ready today, so it's going back to be converted to the mono configuration. the turnaround, I'm told, should be pretty quick.

    I'm headed to Chicago for a convention tomorrow morning back Friday night. so likely next week sometime i'll have the 2 Powerbases back with a minimum of time missing.

    I guess I will be slumming it with vinyl and tape this weekend.

    Yeah, I mean comparing a 120k digital SOTA system to a 14k dac is pretty unfair Enjoy the analog weekend - it will be interesting if it shapes your thoughts going forward.

    I have decided to pass on the Ref dac (not due to sonics) - but will be upgrading to a much beefier power base as i truly believe after recent demos that the power supplies are a big component of the MSB picture.
