    The government is not required to conduct an identification procedure. Unfortunately most peope who are wrongfully convicted are done so based on a faulty identification. Thank god fo rDNA.

    I think there is testimony and then there is evidence. I would like to know of a court case with a calibrated/properly functioning radar[detector] that targeted the correct vehicle not winning out over just the testimony of the defendant.
    Happens all the time.IMO that is why legislatures took awy the right to trial by jury in speeding cases.

    Okay law schol is closed until January.

    Thanks for answering my curiosity. The only thing I know is speaking to police without representation is never in your best interest.

    I thought, no, it's still expanding, maybe it's Dark Energy, driving the posts farther and farther apart.

    I mentioned this on another forum...

    I had the Chord Hugo TT DAC for about a month and found it hard, harsh, shrill, flat, and just not the wonder the other reviews claim. As Lee suggested, it may not be my cup of tea for sound signature.

    So today, I tried plugging in my Uptone Regen Amber and Curious Cable Regen LINK (I had it since Christmas but was advised the Hugo TT should not use these). Well, I figured "why not" so I connected them. Measurable difference/snake oil or not, it made an audible difference. Playing the same material, I can definitely hear more weight/meat/fullness in the instruments. The highs were less fizzy and hard. Ride cymbals had a nice metallic tinge but it decayed nicely. This is just playing on my PC/NAS setup using low-endish Focal Alpha 65 speakers.

    I'm liking this setup a lot and can understand the hubbub now. And the PC recognized the DAC without issues (I've read the Intona may have issues with device dropping off). It sucks that I had to add these doohickeys to augment what is supposed to be a decent and not-that-inexpensive DAC.

    My CAD$0.02.

    To keep the thread going..

    Did you try your DAC with the cable you had before?

    Unless I'm not understanding your question, I was comparing the same DAC with the cable before (not to my liking) to adding the Uptone/Curious combo in. I'm still using the same Schiit Audio PYST USB cable from the PC to the Uptone Regen. I'm not really wanting to spend $500 on another USB cable yet.
