It's A Long Drive to Houston...
- But it might be worth it Saturday, when the Houston Audio Society
will find out whether ones and zeros from a computer hard drive sound
different from ones and zeros from a 4" polycarbonate disk. For this
meeting we'll compare my unmodded Squeezebox 3, a pull-out-all-the-
stops Bolder Cable Company modded Squeezebox 2, and a Maui Mods
modded Transporter versus a similarly priced Arcam CD player.
This comparison will be done on my main system with the Selah Audio
XT-8 line arrays driven by a Moscode 401HR amp. This amplifier is
everything its maker, George Kaye, and the reviewers say it is. Too
bad it costs five big ones or I would order one today. One of our
members is off to Singapore for a month, and not wanting him to leave
a fotune in high end electronics unguarded at his apartment I
volunteered to equipment sit for him. Being a nice and considerate
guy, I even agreed to keep it warm while he's away.
RSVP not required; just show up at my house between 9:00 and 10:00.
