Hello there my name is Pete [the Feet]
I came across the site whilst researching DACs on another site. I am a relative newbie to this digital malarkey having purchased my Dacmagic and Squeeze Duet in May 2009. I have been on the lookout for an upgrade to the current DAC but as yet haven't heard any other options.
I have undergone a few system changes in the last 18 months after years of relative stability system wise. the current set up consists of:
LP12 basic arm and Rega cartridge [Seldom used]
PC storage on laptop
Denon DAB/AM/FM tuner [DAB is quite a let down]
Yamaha Cassette recorder
Yamaha DSP for weekly film
Naim NAC 52
Rega R5 speakers
I'm not sure whether to either upgrade the speakers first or the DAC whichever gives most bang for buck as they say. Having said that the majority of my listening these days is via Spotify as I'm enjoying listening to something a little less familiar than my own collection.
Here's wishing you every success in your new venture and I hope it takes off.
PS. Where was the show that was mentioned where the DACs were compared? A chap who I bought a NAP250 off has compared many Dacs and has so far remained with his Dacmagic as he finds it less fatiguing than some he tried and also good value for money.
I'm glad you made it, Sergio - can you think of something to say? We're all a bit quiet this week!
I've been offered a try of a friends Arcs in my house and that being well I'm certainly on the lookout for some nice, oak s/h ones.

My name is Phil and I live in Bletchley, Bucks. I am married with 2 small children - Emily (3) and Ewan (9 months).

I will be demoing a M2 Tech Young DAC in the new week or so, with a view to upgrading the performance of my digital front end. It was a thread from another forum regarding this DAC that led me to this very fine new forum. Some of you may know me from Wigwam.
I have varied tastes in music from electronica, prog house, jazz, acoustic, indie, rock. Never managed to get into classical - but as I approach my forties (later this year) that may all change. I hated jazz a few years ago and find myself listening to it frequently now! Must be getting old I guess LOL.
Would just like to wish the team every success with this forum.
