Those measurements don't exactly jive. The width suggests a four panel across model. The stacked models, however, were 94" tall and the single...
Nice choice and another discrete design. From the manual:
"The NWD has a 100% discrete analog output stage and IV converter for a warm and...
What you posted was "Just about every..."
Of the Perfect Wave DAC, however, PS Audio says: "Every component is a discrete proprietary audio...
I think the value lies incorporating subwoofers where you can optimize the low/high pass xover settings and level to match the room acoustics...
Are you really not aware of DACs that don't rely upon op amps?
Ok. My Audio Research DAC8 uses matched JFETs for balanced output. The current...
Best? Here are my favorites:
Joseph Audio Pulsar
Focal Sopra No1
Hmmm. From what I find, the Lumin U1 Mini runs about $2k.
Don't know about you, but I think many will find that a cost multiple of eight times...
Not exactly. The hallmark of a full range electrostat is coherency - one pebble in the pond in terms of radiation.
There's a difference between the unqualified statement of yours to which I responded and an anecdotal listing of models in this thread.
They were introduced in '77.
What a sad testament. Wifey and I have season tickets to the symphony.
Have you watched the movie "Score"? Highly recommended.
What was good then remains good today. I enjoy New Advents in the garage system.
Far better exists today, however, if that is important to you.
Subscription to Qobuz. Among other groupings, one is new releases.
I frequently check that and by genre.
I guess when all you've got is a single driver with which to work, you try to make the best of it. :)
Fortunately, that is just not the case. Many companies use JFETs or tubes for the output stage.
And even those with op amps can be replaced...
