There is a lot to learn on this site, with some very knowledgeable contributors, I have had numerous of my past held beliefs regarding audio proved untrue in the past, but this has only helped me gain a better understanding of what is important, and do-able.

"White Castle" has a different meaning in English than you suppose. What You Crave | White Castle

White Castle?

Should this have been "Ivory Tower", a term (at least in the USA) which refers to people who are isolated from the reality which they profess to be experts at?

While it still looks DIY, this looks a lot better than the unit that started this discussion.

Hi everyone. Normally I dont jump on forums because I poorly handle flame wars, as a buddist who has nothing but love and compassion for other people. But some explanation would be in place. Mr Sy seems to be very knowledgeable master, a mentor, who wrote quote: "unit that looks like it was vomited from a junk-box, then had the parts rearranged by a palsied lemur," Thats a very interesting and productive comment. I had a good laugh. Thats like a new way of saying "I am an ignorant and I judge other peoples work in electronics by looking at the parts if they are lied out neatly". What did I do to this gentlemen to trigger his flames? Did I cheat? Step on his toe ? Offend him ? I guess not. Maybe it is that people do not understand the electrical concepts we follow ? I know about EMC quite a lot and I know about neat construction too. We choose to wire point to point and not use PCB. We choose NOT to bundle wires which are better separated. We choose the parts that are best for the job and many users praise the sonic results. There are very specific reasons why we must use wooden blocks in a particular place and why we use three-dimensional point to point wiring and we do not disrespect EMC compatibility. In fact I am EMC specialist and I have done more professional EMC tests and approvals than all participants in this forum combined. So I dont know why we are accused of violations that nobody has any proof or grounds for. Mr Sy and Mr Marce enjoy criticizing our work , based on just looking at the picture or two and never hearing or testing our gear. Maybe they find it amusing but I dont know why it will remain on internet forever to repell all our customers who google Lampizator. Neither of them even bothered to email us and simply ask questions and get explanations. Who knows maybe their valid remarks would be taken into manufacturing practice. But it is so much easier to use vomit analogies and pretend to be a guru. I think I am wasting my time even writing this. HAve a good day. Lukasz Fikus owner and designer at Lampizator.

Dear Lukasz

I think you gave a proof of your civility not answering before, however you should have done it before. Dozens of messages to say that the layout looks ugly. I agree it's ugly, and so what? If you don't like it you don't buy it. Is is illegal to sell something which looks horrible?

I don't have experience with the Lampizator DAC but a close friend of mine built the Lampizator output stage for the SRC 2496 and we were all (a community of 9 audiophiles with years of listening experiences) amazed about how it sounded compared with super-priced equipment... for the records the comparison included an MBL dac-transport combo.

Good luck with your projects.
Pierre

There is no enjoyment in it in the way you are insinuating. I work on numerous projects in the real world where I am heavily involved in the connectivity between systems on both the PCB and system level within a case, rack or box and system level between boxes.
I am making the call as a professional in this field and have stated it is my view on what I see before me. I am sorry if you do not like my criticism, but I stand by my views on what I have seen.
I am sorry but this is the world and you cannot expect to get glowing sycophantic praise from every angle all the time, in my case I take on the criticism and revue it and look at my practices as to what I can improve.
Your tone and reaction to our criticism is one I have become use to on Audio forums...

I doubt that as you do not know what other field others work in, or what level of EMC compatibility we have to work too.
As said I am sorry you have taken the criticism so badly, but as stated I stand by my comments, I am also qualified to make such comments, both from an EMC point of view and as someone who is involved and has been involved with the design, manufacture, testing and qualification of numerous electronic and electrical projects over many years.

I feel that the tone of his response was rather reserved, particularly given the degree of derisive opinion expressed here regarding his product's value. May I suggest that the tone of your response to Lukasz was not equally reserved. The problem with this thread isn't the negative criticism of a commercial product. My problem, I think, is the derisively negative criticism by those having NO hands on, or more importantly, ears on experience with that product. The subsequent self-reinforcing, and quite smug, 'pilling on' has become a bit too common lately. Sycophantic behavior can be found in group derision as much as in group praise.

FYI - I have no relationship with Lukasz Fikus, nor do I own any of his products, nor have I ever auditioned any of his products.

Well said Mr. Newton and Lucas. It seems everyone is so angry these days and often use Internet as a form of catharsis. It's inappropriate and childish. I've committed the same sins in the past, and the more I see it, the more I cringe. It's a free world still, and people have a right to criticize manufactures if they so desire. However, it would be more helpful to provide very specific and detailed and dare I say objectivist data to back up your statements....

Really? I can't see it.

This is one of the worst threads I've ever seen on a forum anywhere

There are a lot of intelligent people posting here (on both sides) with no common sense. Very disappointing.

Normal/simple PR reaction due to the fact that this thread is listed as 4th when you google "lampizator", above serious audiophile reviews, driving away possible customers .... Bad for the business.
