In episode 11 of our podcast series, Brian Hunter connects with high-end digital audio maker Computer Audio Design, which is based in the UK, but its founder Scott Barry is an American. Honing his design chops in England, CAD has more recently focused their sights on the US and other countries to expand the reach of their limited, but tight set of digital audio products.

The cardboard boxes were piling up all over the house. Cardboard boxes filled with LPs, CDs, cables, shoes, paintings, lamps, sofa pillows, clothes, baby toys and small kitchen appliances as we prepped for moving. But there were two boxes in particular I was interested in unpacking – not packing up – before the movers came. Those ones had Naim gear stuffed into them.

High-fidelity of the no -box count variety is getting more and more hyped as companies such as Linn have started to recognize – what I’m going to refer as – the new stylish-fi market, and their new $3,700 USD ($6,850 USD/pair) Series 3 all-in-one wireless speaker seems directly targeted at it.

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.”
