Room 430: MSB Technology. Always been impressed with the resolution, smoothness, and clarity of the Select DAC. Unfortunately, at ~$130,000 with all the options, I’ll have to take out a second mortgage. MSB’s room always provides world-class sound at these shows, this year’s AXPONA was no exception.
A few familiar faces 😉 I believe Jason Serinus and Jana Dagdagan were (trying) to record a binaural recording. I would’ve been your Hodor guys!
Room 434: Raidho Acoustics. Chord electronic stack. These Raidho Acoustics D-4.1 speakers ($125,000-$140,000) were a wonderful pairing with the BluDAVE (~$25,000).

Mr. Audio Bacon himself. An open-minded electrical engineer and software developer by trade. I have an obsession with the enjoyment of all things media - specifically in the realm of music and film. So much heart and soul (and money) go into the creation of this artistry. My aim is to find out which products get me closer to what the musicians and directors intended.
