    So what do you have now? And is it much better than the a30? Did you stick with valves?

    Always fancied trying one of the A30s. Apparently, they did 60 watt per channel versions as well. Does anyone know of any I could demo or selling for a reasonable price?

    Wow, that's dedication. You could have bought some serious used CDPs or DACs even for that outlay. But there's people still using mk 1 escorts and those are sometimes worth astronomical money, a used Ford focus is probably better in every way, (again a matter of opinion, just like hifi) but that's besides the point, we like and cherish what has value to us. I'm glad the Sony lives on and is still going strong

    Arr Phillips, yes. It is a lovely machine/chip that. And funny as I had a QBD76 one of Chords serious offerings (some even say one of the best ever) while I had my Trichord, the Trichord is still here the QBD isn't. I did finally get a more modern DAC that is just superior than the Trichord (at least IMO), yet I still really enjoy the Trichord, and I have no interest in ever selling it. Its not a record player obviously those are two totally different things, but in a very funny kind of way it reminds me of the turntable I never got around to getting back into.

    Ive had that itch a few times, never scratched it though, they do look nice. Used to get great reviews. Getting on on a bit now though not sure if they had longevity, didnt they used to run hot? Still, if you find a good one you should go for it Its obviously lasted this long.

    Yes please, we will be interested ! Was it one with an external power supply? They were pretty special DACs in their day. I got a little bit of bed time reading on one if you're interested, I'll PM it over, but you might have already seen, just disregard if you have. (I'll forward it to you as well Keith if you fancy a read) Spend some quality time with it first, before you give a verdict, unless you hate it from the off, but there's nothing glaringly to hate really as long as its working well. I find DACs are not always as easy to evaluate as other equipment, speakers for instance is literately black and white sometimes. What you can get with DACs is subtlety majorly different But its those subtle details that matter. What shocked me was I contacted Trichord after about 20 years after they stopped producing them (or whatever I'm guessing) for some try my luck technical support, (and for not a fault I will add). The man who answered the phone said 'woo its been some time let me think'... He then proceeded to tell me some things to do with the circuit board inside! I was amazed. He even said those DACs were a bit special in their day Personally, and as in line with this thread, I still think its worth keeping alive It will be very interesting the put it next to long term favourite as well! Those Digilogs used Burr Brown chips didnt they?
