On an AudioQuest
While Silberman has found success with several different NAS devices, on display in the AQ room was Synology’s powerful DS712+, which Silberman says is highly reliable, has a very friendly user interface, and never compromises the performance of his system.
The system on hand was made of a MacBook playing standard iTunes and sitting on AQ’s stinky but effective QFeet isolation devices; a supercute, supercool AudioQuest DragonFly (see Art Dudley’s review in our October issue); Vandersteen’s similarly cute Treo loudspeakers; and, of course, AudioQuest cables throughout. NAD’s M51 Direct Digital DAC and partnering M50 Digital Music Player were also on hand.
Now, this was a cool system. I noted good imaging, fine bass impact, and an entertaining overall sound.
