    Lampizator announcement: launch of our all new TOTL HORIZON DAC

    Hi David, we are all waiting to hear from Lukasz to be definitive. Thanks for your comment. @Lukasz "Lampizator" Fikus. I was told by a digital expert that DAC chips necessarily invert the absolute phase of output from that of input (if I heard correctly) and a purist approach is to keep the...

    I want to shout out for Fred Ainsley, Lampizator Distributor for NA. He is the best, helping me secure a great trade-in for the Horizon.
