What label and ideally what recording number is this? There are multiple versions of Rutter's Requiem online, and I want to make sure I get the same one.

Doh! My apologies--I've been digitizing shiny disks so much I forgot the HA-1 has analog inputs.

I think I'll stick with my current plan anyway, because in the office there's not much room on our...

That's an analog output connected to an analog input, which would then need to be redigitized. That's lossy.

I gave up trying to play shiny disks into the HA-1. It seems weird that it doesn't have an HDMI input, but it also seems weird that it won't read from a USB drive.

So instead, I'm moving data from...

Picked up the stand today. Fits perfectly. And looks way better in person than it looks in any photos I've seen.

I asked the same question on head-fi and a person tried their PM-1s with an Omega. They said it fit okay, but only if they expanded the headband all the way, otherwise it pinched the cups. So no...

It's measurable magic--check the side-by-side spec comparison on Oppo's site for the HA-1's headphone outputs, XLR vs. RCA.

If you do that, you don't need a 105. Just a 103, because you're bypassing the analog in the 105, so it's a waste.

I considered doing things that way in fact. Just use the 103 as a transport. Not...

Bought a copy earlier this evening. It seems to be a Swiss Army knife for configuring what streams from where and in what format and where it goes. Very cool.

The Woo is nice, but has nowhere near the specs of the HA-1. It...
