Very interested to read on Amarra’s website and I paraphrase ‘it’s easy to make music sound good on a computer but hard to make it sound fabulous’. I think they have been listening to my conversations.
Next week I’m in Munich for the High End show and by coincidence will be sharing a booth (or to be more exact one of my clients Thorens is sharing a booth) themed Sources of the Future – as it’s vinyl and streaming – with Higoto who are Germany’s streaming experts.
The demos will be of Thoren’s new Tri-Balance turntable, the Logitech Transporter and a Macbook running iTunes with the Amarra software into a Weiss DAC.
Should be very interesting. It’ll bring out all the digits is digits posts again, especially as Amarra is around $1500. That means the price of Mac Book Pro , Amarra and DAC will be around £5-6k. Cheaper than my CD player. But will it deliver as much?
Will it be fabulous hi-fi or fabulous music?
