I heard from Lynx Studios today that they will be sending us a Lynx Aurora 8-USB DAC ($2195) and probably a Lynx Hilo DAC ($2495) for use during the GTG. These will be used during the blind listening portion of the day so we can instantly switch to a different speaker system.
The signal chain for the day is computer > DAC > amplifiers > speakers with only balanced interconnects being used. We will have 5 monoblock amps, 1 stereo amp, and the 2 built-in subwoofer amps that all have balanced inputs. For some systems, the price of all the gear and speakers being used will be over $20,000.
