    FTA (Final Touch Audio) Callisto USB cable

    Is it with the 5V line/trace or is it with the 5V line cut? Lampis sound better with the 5V line cut.

    What are you feeding the Horizon with in this case? A physical disc transport or a streamer/server (non USB)? I personally hate XLR for digital as it has an engineering limit. RCA or better yet RJ45 i2S is far bettter. I dont like HDMI i2s too much either. Balanced with digital, a no no for me.

    Hi J, The gray smoked tube is a RCA and the clear one is Raytheon. Yes, that recti is a huge GZ480 and explains why the Herbies is placed low.I dont find real need for the Herbies on the B3.

    I dont think the rumour is true at all. Most everyone I know with an Horizon was trade up customer. Fred reads the thread here so he should be seeing your message. They seem to be pumping out Horizons now...

    B3 is hard to beat, even at price multiple. Perfect start to any Lampi journey, though people tell me the Amber 4 is special too. As for the Horizon, I wish I had the budget...

    LDMS Server

    Ldms punches far above its weight. It is tweaked out to the max inside with many overlooked advances.

    LDMS Server

    The gulf stream is new and totally upgraded. Hardware is top notch overbuilt. Ldms will always have software edge and has great hardware tweaks too. You can’t go wring with either but with ldms the customer care will be lightning speed reactive. pros and cons to both but overall edge goes to...

    Most Lampis since 5 years have that too. I leave my Dac on for a few days at a time when doing lost of listening and standby otherwise most time. When I won't listen for a long time, I turn it off.

    Technically, I think the triodes ARE the power tubes in the H-Dac (of course with the pin blend with the pentodes, are they still "triodes" or some new virtual tube). LoL See what Lukasz orginally said here: On the Horizon tube rolling: this is going to be exciting. The 7 tubes work in a new...

    Almost every commercial product launch has an early bird incentive special. Here we have exotic tubes for the early adopters and most generous upgrade conditions for the first few months. After a while these go away and yes, as Steve said, these were all announced up front. This is reality...

    As I said, PM me. I dont doubt your observations, but its besides the point. Hype drives prices. I see the blue balls being dissed now and I recall a time people would wait weeks and months longer for their Dacs to have with blue balls. LoL

    For those I love the vintage Pope, Tungsram and amperex/bugle boy and a few others. The Japanese are likely the best of all there.
