Is your new DAC a USB only device or does it support SPDIF input via coax?  
---------------------

Dr. Cheng,  
 
My collection is very small, it's nothing compared to the astute audiophiles in this forum ")  
 
BTW, I went to a concert at the Cultural center tonight. The Hallé was here from the UK for 2 nites. Tonight was the 2nd night. The conductor was Sir Mark Elder.  
 
The performance was simply superb, bravo! A much needed calibration for my ears and brain :)  
 
I recommend all budding CAS audiophiles (those without traditional CD transport) to attend something like this. This will be extremely helpful for them to understand what is proper tonal balance, sound stage depth, tone density and dynamics.

A C Hing just came this morning for a private home audition, here is what he posted on Review33:  
 
[#2216] Can HTPC Beat CD Player?  
今早打搞左KURO兄一朝,聽左Kuro精心修改好的系統,比一年前進步不少、一個字掂!個人覺得唔玩CAS的C Hing 去聽過可能會轉軑,玩緊CAS的C Hing 更應該去找KURO兄取經及聽聽CAS應該出咩聲,唔係用一味貴機,貴喇叭加貴線就得。  
完來用CD Rip 的44.1hz file 己經夠聽了!

I can only accomodate 4 at the most, as sonics will not be the same sitting on the sides.  
 
So sounds like the next session is all booked up! (Vash, Limage, cpyip and icefox). It is hard to get Vash to come due to his work hrs. Last time my system had a short/failure, so Vash couldn't have a listen to my system :(

Just a bit more to add.  
 
I started out ripping CDs using iTunes. Then I found that the ripping is not bit accurate. It is because different CD-ROMs/DVD-ROMs have different (undocumented) CD Red Book read offset. This is why if you rip a track on your PC and your friend use the same disc and rip it on his PC (different ROM drive hardware), you get different data content of the same track! Try this with a file comparison software and you'll see!  
 
AccurateRip completely avoided the problem by using the proper read offset for the particular ROM drive you use. AccurateRip is built-in to dbPowerAmp. You can read some more on here:  
 
http://www.accuraterip.com/  
 
dbPowerAmp compares the 32-bit CRC of the rip against the same rip made by someone else using the same program in other parts of the world to ensure accuracy. They have a reasonably large database of CDs. It'll tell you if a particular track is not ripped accurately (perhaps due to finger print smudge) so you can clean the disc and re-rip the track again.  
 
Now if you understand this so far, you can read between the lines and tell that there is generally no difference in different stampings of the same CD manufactured in different time. Of course, there are also CDs with different stampings, but these are far and few in between.

dbPowerAmp R14 only runs on Windows.  
 
You can tell dbPowerAmp to rip in Apple lossless format. Then it is just a matter of copying the files over / dragging the links to iTunes.  
 
BTW, iTunes spells with and "s". Not trying to be a smart ass, just to set the record straight.

You can find cover arts rather easily from google images.

Agree, it's a bit tedious though. Currently I do both ripping and playing with iTune. Is it possible (I wonder if that is a paid option), such that when I rip, it will get the cover arts image for me too.  
 
If I want to use dbPowerAmp R14 in the future, how would it integrate with my iTune?

Well, different stroke for different folks. Some of my friends really like the realtime lyrics download.  
 
Album cover art is created when the CD is ripped. I use dbPowerAmp R14. This new version will even search for high-res cover art images on the net for you.

Of course, it depends on whether you pursuit better sonic quality or convenience. Or strike a compromise b/w the two.  
 
iTunes with iPhone/iPad as remote is hard to beat!  
 
I'm using iPeng on iPad for my Transporter, it is superb!

Thanks for the futuristic video, it's cool. In the future, you may need to reboot your gas stoven, what a day. You microwave oven may blue screen to you.  
 
I saw very similar stuff from Cisco Systems. To support a vision like this, it takes a lot of creativity. It reminds me about the recent dinner that Obama called up with all those leading figures from the Silicon Valley like John Chamber, Steve Jobs, Larry Elison...........

let me show you my new cas system trial.  
 
i recently acquired a used Apple TV (1st generation) and using it as a frontend player and all my music files are stored in the NAS. Apple TV is connected to the NAS using ethernet and the dac is connected to the Apple TV USB port. like this,  
 
nas --> apple tv --> dac  
 
 
 
 
music playing is controlled by an iPod touch, of coz you can use an iphone, ipad or other hand held devices (android will work too).

No worries, you see people are brimming with confidence in you. They don't even know the price.  
 
It's a cool $30,000 just for the D/A module  
 
not counting of course the 60 pound power supply and a dedicated clock which could easily set you back by another $60,000 !  
 
No more pressure eh.

icefox,  
 
it's a special version tailored for DIYer, async USB with low jitter fixed clock.  
driver-less for MAC OS X (snow leopard or higher) and linux. custom driver needed for microsoft windows (xp and 7)
