"I didn't "just go to fracking Florida" and abandon any further testing of the
CB-IIIHD, this trip to our place in this kinda world class golf and country club, which just happens to be in frackin Florida, was born entirely for the sake of pure audio research
and I was forced to make this trip all by my lonesome.
How much more dedicated to the cause can I get?
The only real problem with this place is I don't play fracking golf!
Although I am well practiced at the art of sitting by the pool, using a hot-tub to warm my aching body during this brutal winter, while reenergizing myself with some excellent food, so I will be in better condition to keep testing the CB-IIIHD upon my return to NY.
I am enduring this hardship, this completely selfless act, out of concern for all of you guys waiting for your upgrades.
I came all the way down here, on my own dime mind you, to compare the DAC1 with a pair of Dynaudio speakers, connected to the USB output from this Macbook pro and a Sonos, so I would then be more able to return to my CB-IIIHD and know what the difference in sound was when I connect said CB-IIIHD to a Mac via HDMI instead of this USB.
When I get back NY, I should know if the CB-IIIHD is really worth all of the hoopla that it has created.
I am using all different equipment then I use in NY so as to negate the need to use any sort of meter to do this comparison.
Of course the fact that I left my white car out in a snowstorm for the first time in 30yrs and my plow guy didn't see this white car in the middle of the snowstorm and completely encased it in a block of snow and ice had nothing to do with my hasty departure from NY.
I was ready to return NY today, and get back to my CB-IIIHD, since I've been told my car is visable again, when yet another winter storm warning was issued and I decided that it is best to remain right where I am until that mess is over with.
I mean, the CB-IIIHD is really nice and all but a little freedom to get out of the house and drive around a bit is kinda nice too.
And I finally have some use for this (com)PLEX server software using Netflix, Pandora and iTunes, but Craig may get a call about changing a password within Sonos.
I'm sure it'll be a good break for him from all of the CB-IIIHD questions.
You see, I have his best interests at heart too!
So, now I have a few more days to play with the USB input on the DAC1.
I'm only thinking about you guys and your CB-IIIHDs, really I am. Nothing is more important to me
