I'm not Mr Pass but Mr Pedro

I listen mostly to LP's.

All the new albums I have, I see it first if they exist in vinyl.

I have 60-40 % vinyl CD's.

I believe that the futer is digital, but might be a market for the Audiofreaks. (if Ferrari's, Leica's, can sell why not LP's?)

That´s what i think also, but I see that the future of vynil is expensive. Something like luxus. It will be kind of hard to keep up.
I was hoping Super audio CD would dominate but after so many years it is disapointing to see no real change in the market.

All,

recently bought the vinyl of MMW/Uninvisible and St.Germain/Tourist.
Still waiting for the post man, i keep you informed whether the vinyl is better than the CD

Me? listening to CD? only if i must, cultural pressure and stuff, like the music not being available on vinyl.
And my next tonearm will play shellacs too. My current one doesn't allow the angular swing.

It's sad to say and really hard to predict when it'll really happen, but the future IS digital.

I wasn't sure about it untill I finished my latest DAC. It beats my analog system which was in $2,000 price range. Also, most of the music I'm listening to is not available on vinyl, and if it is, cost more than CD. The other advantge of CD is simplicity and quality of copies made, which recently started to dominate my collection (otherwise I couldn't afford my music ).

no idea. Scheu ain't cheap but not expensive either, considering the quality he delivers. TMK, alterenatives to Scheu are in USA hence unaffordable. The US$ has about the same purchasing power as 50 ¤-cents. So US products are about twice as expensive for Europena buyers.

Why not desinging you own? You make drawings and if you wish, i comment them and suggest possible enhancements. We could do it here and other diyAudio members could join in and we could have a group project happen like the Teres.

Brian,

Yes. The original board with good parts and good crystal (very impotant), parallel 1704K DACs, plus elaborate power supply including 6 split bobbins transformers supplying 11 separate voltages for digital section alone (this includes 44 soft recovery rect. diodes) and 2 split bobbins transformers for analog section with 4 additional voltage supply and 16 more rect. diodes. The big improvement was made by adding separate supplies for digital and analog section of the DAC chips.

My analog rig was MapleNoll air bearing turntable, BluePoint Special and Pass Ono. Nothing extreme really, but as far as I could go with analog.
