Speakers are Revel Performa M20s and Audio Physic Virgos. My rack is a Salamander 5.0, with all manner of Seismic sinks and Sorbothane pucks in use, along with two Blue Circle amp stands.

You are one who understands the beauty of art, of music, of architecture. Heck, you could probably read Gödel and Escher and even understand them! You know that reaching beauty through sound costs time and money; this can mean spending. The Flatfish has an onboard 4x oversampling 1-bit DAC if you want to start without the Progression, or you can plug in a different DAC. But you have to be careful. There are two outputs (coaxial RCA only) for outboard DACs, one that's DC coupled. No matter what I threw at the 47 Lab combo, it consistently sounded beautiful, highly resolving, relaxed and utterly natural. This is how music should sound all the time, thought I. I felt my body relax as I forgot (for the moment) about soundstage and. The Progression is so light that a stiff pair of interconnects will set it aloft. But if you weigh it down with the Power Dumpty, it will probably stay put. Kidding! The tin-can-shaped Power Dumpty is no less ergonomically challenged, perched as it is on. Bose mini pods just to prove his point. The magazine went along for the ride, but the editor rewrote my lead to reflect what they saw as SDD, or Stereo Dysfunctional Disorder. To the argue against that somewhat derogatory, if humorous label, I set out. For instance, if the previous CD had ten tracks, that is all the Flatfish will recognize on a subsequent disc until you click the switch to identify the contents of the new disc. Get ready for a cerebellum retrofit; you'll need it to rethink everything you know about high-end audio. The philosophy of Junji 47 Lab is the brainchild of Japanese designer Junji Kimura, who worked for Pioneer, Trio and Kyocera before heading off to reinvent the wheel. Kimura claims its all aluminum chassis "prevents dispersion of digital noise" and the three screws holding it together "reduce the amount of stress on the chassis dramatically." Its curved, Jetsons-worthy design is meant to act as spiked feet on the bottom and to help release. I stuck the 47 Lab trio on top of a Seismic Sink and forgot about it. Review system My sweet spot is positioned six feet in front of a Blue Circle BC21 preamp with power-supply upgrade, Theta Jade transport connected with JPS Lab Superconductor digital. The jaw drops, the buck stops Let me throw the cat out of the bag. The combo of Flatfish, Progression and Power Dumpty is nothing short of sonically sublime. It shows the promise of the CD format fully realized and implemented by a designer who.
