I was in denial for about a week. The Rossini Master Clock arrived and I purposefully ignored its shipping box after tucking it in a corner of the dining room. I think it was because I was so happy with the sound from the dCS Rossini DAC in my system that I didn’t want to mess with it.

The cost of high-fidelity is something of a flash point in the hobby for many who see $10k USD DACs as outrageous and long for pricing more down-to-earth.

He was worried. My friend, you see, was worried. He was worried because he’d been listening to some high-resolution audio files and found he preferred them to standard CD-quality. He called me and asked if I could come over.

We’ve all seen the person shaking their head at the Apple Store’s Genius Bar, or at a local computer repair shop. Gesturing futilely at a laptop, or PC because hardware has gone wrong or they can’t figure out a software problem.

Hello darkness, my old friend. Sigh. It was inevitable, really. Using Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence” as a metaphor for the Aurender W20 Music Server. As soon as I switched over to it from the Aurender N10 the difference was noticeable enough that the song leapt to the fore of mind and I blurted out. “Shit.”

In August 2000, when I started working at Stereophile as an editorial assistant, I was almost 23 years old, identified mostly as a guitarist and poet, listened to more music than anyone in the world (other than the girls I tried hopelessly to date), and knew absolutely nothing about hi-fi. I did not know that high-end audio existed. I had never even heard the word audiophile.

There’s something to be said for big monitors hooked up to hi-fi racks bursting with gleaming alloy boxes in a chic, modern, designer showroom.

It was touch-and-go for awhile. Except I kept wanting to touch and not go. I wanted to touch and stay and listen. It wasn’t like I couldn’t stop myself. What am I talking about? The main control dial on the top of the Linn Selekt DSM Katalyst with Integrated Power Amplifier of course.
