We had this idea in mind that someone quite innocently would come along to a record store and see [the record] and think they would be getting 20 really good jazz/funk greats, and then they would put it on at home and they would just get decimated.

The Metrum Acoustics Pavane is the company's flagship DAC. Like the recently reviewed and well loved Musette (see review), the Pavane relies on Metrum's own Transient R2R ladder DAC One modules to convert Ds to As.

Our barn's overall interior dimensions are roughly 35' x 45' x 12'. My listening/work space is now 17' x 35'. These final dimensions were accomplished by moving well over 100 boxes and bins and various pieces of furniture out of the barn, and then once everything was rearranged, back in. It took a few days but it was well worth the effort. The barn sounds great, feels great, and I'm very fortunate to be able to call this home, for work and play.
