Hey Clay,

You don't ever want your DAC to become infamously known as the "speaker killer"!!! ;-

....

With that in mind, and virtually no detectable difference in sound (by you at least), I just don't think the risk justifies the return.

What's German for speaker killer?  :P:D

 

I think it is too late. Clay has let the genie out! Now everyone will want the option just in case it is better...

Why limit the potential of a DAC because of a minority of people's stupidity...

Because the potential is there for not only stupid folk, but unfortunate ones as well, to suffer the consequences. If you had one and your child/grandchild/niece accidentally hit the remote buttons and blew your rig, would you still say the marginal gain was worth it?

I'd suggest if people want the bypass in place they should ask for it specifically, but even then the risks remain. With that in mind, and virtually no detectable difference in sound (by you at least), I just don't think the risk justifies the return.

 

Same here.

 

I will be giving Clay on the computer I will be lending him some DSD and the same DSD entropy encoded to PCM.  I find HqPlayer makes a huge difference - more than DSD - but we will see.

 

Thanks

Bill

And here is your change...

Raised 3 beautiful children...

They were all taught how to use my system/s...

Why should 90% have less because 10% DGAF...

Nothing should be dumbed down to the lowest common denominator...

Not sure if possible or wanted, my DAC when started is partially muted and when volume is increased to 100% then the pre is bypassed. It is a good function but a little annoying when not using it as a pre. It does work great as a fail safe though.

Make it a 2 step button operation on the remote to turn on/off bypass, ie press and hold a Certain button and then press the bypass button to activate it on and off ?.

Hey Clay,

Although when (not if) I get one I plan to run through a pre, however if I wanted to  change in the future, or if someone accidentally hit the remote, or if I ever sold it on and the person didn't read the manual, it's bye bye speakers.

I think it's just to much of a risk for users and for you in the long run, to leave the bypass in place. You don't ever want your DAC to become infamously known as the "speaker killer"!!! ;-)

I'd suggest if people want the bypass in place they should ask for it specifically, but even then the risks remain. With that in mind, and virtually no detectable difference in sound (by you at least), I just don't think the risk justifies the return.

Can't wait to hear it!

Cheers,

Steve :-)

I tend agree.  Have the option available on request to those who want it and acknowledge the risk.

 

As for the faceplate... Gieseler on the front, Groß on the back imo.
