Re: Digital Upscaling

Had my Metrum Musette on NVA A40 amps for a couple of years now without any problems. But volume pot never goes above 12 o'clock.

Re: Your last listen

What a welcome change to hear the Strawbs mentioned in dispatches, "FROM THE WITCHWOOD" and "ALL OUR OWN WORK" being two particular fav's. 'Hero and Heroine' is an all-time favourite of mine. 'Ghosts' was the follow-up to that and is an album I have missed out on - really superb album in a similar ...

Still on that learning curve ....

Re: Digital Upscaling

So far, I have found the NOS approach (as used in the Metrum DAC's) to be more musically satisfying than any oversampling systems that I have heard (e.g.: Hegel, MF, Mark Levinson, Moon, Cambridge).

Grado SR325 were too heavy to be comfortable with a very pronounced treble.

Meze 99 Classics look good and sound good. Dynamic and lively sound with effective isolation from outside noise.
