Light Harmonic Da Vinci 384K
I noted generous scale, midrange detail, full body, and an overall effortlessness to the presentation of this system: Wilson Sophia loudspeakers, Pass Labs amplification, and the new Light Harmonic Da Vinci 384K USB DAC ($15,000 [NOTE: The actual retail price ended up at $20k-ed.]).
The zero-feedback, fully-balanced design has USB and S/PDIF inputs, is compatible with sampling rates up to 384kHz, operates in asynchronous mode, and boasts native support and plug-and-play operation for Mac OS and Linux platforms. Oh: It also looks crazy, like it might fly off your equipment rack and hunt down some Storm Troopers.
