I Got To Hear The Direct Stream DAC at the AAVC Meeting- Thoughts

@woot

Was a preamp used?

If so, what was it?

Straight in from the DAC to Amp, no pre.

@woot Looks like that beer is from upstate New York. We’re heading later today to our friends’ house in the Catskills for the weekend. I’ll have to keep an eye open for it.

The simple set up. Passive Power filter by Furutech provided by a club member.

BTW- there were TWO speakers… LOL!

NY is correct. You can also get it at Total Wine and More. It's my fav "special" beer!

@woot We were able to find the Ommegang. It seems to be pretty common (and popular) around here. My wife said they had about seven varieties at the grocery store. We got the Rare Vos. Very fruity and nice. I suspect Paul would really like it.

Ah, but is it "real"?

woot, nice photo depicting 2 out of 3 audiophiles bowing down their heads in prayer or deference to the DS!

Not many of us have imbibed a virtual beer.

It must be uniquely unsatisfying, not that there is anything wrong with that.

This one was real, palpable with great presence and incredible dynamics. If you closed your eyes you would almost believe you were in the center section of the brewery.
