    DAC Off Part 2: Qutest vs RME ADI-2 DAC

    Shall we all ring Keithey for a test unit tomorrow? then we can all compare notes. Personally I want to test his £8400 DAC in comparison, so i'll get one of those as well.

    Buy it from Keith, try it out then return it under Consumer Contract Regs if its crap. You have legally 14 days to return it if you dont like it...but Juno records seem the cheapest at the moment and they always give you even more off if you call them and haggle.

    I almost fell asleep half way through, so decided to listen to some music instead. Was a much better use of life hours than reading that waffle.

    Searching for a rich vinyl like sound in digital music

    How do you define the original recording? Curious, Have you been in many bands? play many instruments? recording any songs/albums?

    Searching for a rich vinyl like sound in digital music

    You're wrong there - the producer/engineer moulds the original sound and changes it for the 'production', thus it isnt original after post production. Hearing most music in its purest form would literally bring 'hifi' enthusiasts to tears. Yes, I am a musician and have plenty of my own recordings. It's sad as a musician seeing that people have resulted to 'measuring' music in a home environment. In fact, its almost disturbing. Most music wouldnt ever 'measure' well at all.

    I doubt anyone would still be searching for a 'vinyl like sound' after reading 32 pages of this....they will have just gone to Currys and bought a Matsui stereo.

    DAC Off Part 2: Qutest vs RME ADI-2 DAC

    I think thats asking a religious fundamentalist to give their up religion (i,e severely mentally ill person)...they would rather start a war. The sad fact is, Keithey no longer actually hears music, so the pity is there for him but the humour for us from his trolling. We also have to remember, his constant obsession is also his sales technique, it's easy to forget he is only here to make himself money. Afterall. he says anything 'well engineered' will sound the same, so there is no difference from this RME unit to the ridiculous £8500 unit he also sells theoretically, so he knows he has to push the cheaper unit because more people are likely to buy it, than be mugged off by his sales patter for the other.

    Being a bit of a cable connoisseur, although not a massive fan of heavily manufacturer cables with their etched sound, I'd be happy to write a review of your cables if you wanted to get some exposure in the UK. Drop me a pm if interested.
