Vivid and Luxman Rock DSD
But the reason I visited this room, which was on Jason Serinus' beat, was to return a Transparent USB cable Philip had left behind when he had installed the Vivid G3Giya speakers in my room the week before the show. Philip had brought Luxman's new DA06 D/A processor ($5990) on that visit and I had been impressed by how this DAC sounded decoding DSD files via USB. The DA06 continued to impress me at RMAF, with a classic Ray Brown live album, transferred from analog tape to DSD with the Grimm converter, sounding . . . er . . . vividly natural with a full-range balance.
