    Best Countries to Visit?

    agree with Tofino and Long Beach. I also enjoy the drive from Nanaimo. While planning for the trip I was wondering why such a long time for such a short drive (I think 250kms).. twists and turns highway speed limit changing very often.. I like it, almost like playing a video game

    Lumin X1 flagship server/dac

    as good as the Sr with Snowmass, I felt that the X1 has better detail and separation of instruments while remaining musical. The soundstage is bigger and more three dimensional .
