    You can simulate bit depth in JRiver. 10 bits sounds absolutely chronic. The guy is talking out of his arse, or is a complete idiot, or has a very faulty unit.
    10 bits is more than enough for a lot of recordings. The bit depth only determines maximum and minimum amplitude, not the frequency response. Also he measures the Topping DAC by the same parameters and gets 19 bit resolution. Which does tend to indicate that it isn't a fault with the testing equipment or procedure.

    Chip in with Brian.
    They are certainly worth it, imo.

    You won't have to bother with those others, Grant, if you invest in the WE.

    Mind you, I've asked Justin for a price but he hasn't got back to me on that yet.
    No - he's busy rushing around doing stuff and squeezing in the odd post every now and then.

    I'll answer Martin's post later today...

    Mine were $5 cheaper. BUT look at the import and postage costs on top.

    I've PM'd Macca to explain this. Not the place for a discussion on digital stuff it could get way too involved.

    New preamp - Herron VTSP-2.
    6 EH ecc88 valves tucked away inside.
    I think it goes rather nicely with my 2 Trigon monoblocks.



    Early days yet, only arrived this morning, but I'm really enjoying it!
