When I was growing up my father spoke to me about the danger of hyperbole – I was 11 or 12 years old at time. I bring it up because that moment popped into my consciousness again as I was transcribing the listening notes from my time with the Audio Note DAC 5 Special.

With a fair number of the world’s news junkies tuned-in to the political machinations playing out in Washington D.C., Capital AudioFest 2019 should be a welcome respite from the 24-hour-a-day news cycle of the latest on U.S. presidential impeachment proceedings for audiophiles in the D.C. and Maryland areas.
