Much of the concept for the first Fluke ScopeMeter was mine.

I know that the only true test is in the real world with anything and that the engineering credo KISS (keep it simple stupid) is the best starting approach. IMHO

Like most engineers I don't always agree with others, especially when they start hawking products that make them money but this link to an excellent old site predates this MSEE's own product flow. Tubes and very efficient speakers can be great if done properly. I went the other way myself because I fell in love with the Ken Kantor designed NHT 3.3's and they need lots of power. There are several approaches to great audio and each has its benefits and problems.

I also love reading the sincere and experienced advice on the site too. I don't always agree with him either but I sure wish I could afford his highest recommendation's.

Oh yea, Ross Martin Audio has discontinued the Super Beast I and has a Gen II model with a four layer board and word clock out etc but no dsd. It should be one of the best dacs made though and cost around $450 delivered. I own the old beast, love it, and have no ties otherwise.
