Stahl-Tek of Clute, Texas is a company that's new to me and they were showing their new Opus CDT CD Transport ($37,000), and Opus DAC ($35,000). The DAC's inputs include I2S via HDMI, S/PDIF (RCA and BNC), AES/EBU (XLR) and USB and there are single-ended and balanced outputs. The Opus DAC can handle up to 24-bit/192KHz data. Stahl-Tek also offers the Ariaa DAC ($12,900) and the Audiophile Bridge to Computer USB-S/PDIF converter (S3,500).

The rest of the system consisted of the Analog Domain Audio GmbH ARTEMIS monoblock power amplifiers driving a pair of Göbel Epoque Reference speakers.
