I get excited too as the date gets closer, but then i click the Pacific on and forget all about upgrades. Music is why we are here after all. The new album cycle Tedeschi Trucks are doing around old Persian poems, for example, made me forget all about the fact that a Horizon is on the way. Highly recommended cure for “upgraditis” :)

Agree,
I’m enjoying my GG2 while I wait on my Horizon. I’m rolling tubes and enjoying the sound.

Master Yoda always speaks with great emotion. You can feel his pride and joy when he discusses the Horizon and the satisfaction he gets hearing what he designed. A more modest man does not exist.
Lukasz is a great guy and I really like him …. But modest when he is claiming that the Horizon is the best dac in the world?

I am thrilled to bring home the Horizon DAC today after the Pacific Audio Show. Thanks Fred and Lukasz!

Quick impressions after install, compared to Pacific DAC: More tonal density, smoother flow, voices sound more human with better articulation. Lower noise floor. Overall feels like a major system upgrade :) Looking forward to completing the burn-in!

Inflation;) even in the word department. But, hope to hear the Horizon (or Pacific for that matter) in a show myself.

I was so happy to see you in Seattle. It is great to know that Hotizon is in good hands.

I just got my custom HRS platform for my Horizon.

I had to include one with Jerry on his birthday.

Yes. Happy Day… No matter how down I get, I think about the billions of years since the earth was born and the millennia of human history and feel grateful that I was so often in a room with that man.

Do you have a link to that platform? Also, what are the quad of tubes you have there?

The platform was made to the specifications of the Horizon. Custom size since the standard 19x21 platform isn’t deep enough.

The quad tubes are Tesla EL51s.
