Time for upate... been busy with work and all...
I have received the fully loaded Bloat from Hippohifi. Let's open it up and see what it is all about.
The legendary small Package with big sound
Small scratch on the casing... I don't think it will pass ISO9001 anytime soon
Let's get naked
Burr Brown PCM1794...needless to say this is the good stuff
After firing up Bloat and hooking it up to my old YAMAHA DSP-1000. I am happy to report it worked fine so far. Further testing is needed in term of sound quality improvement.
My motherboard, CPU, RAM, worked fine too. It's time to find the right solid-state drive for it. I am thinking of the new Intel X25-M 80GB SSD. We will see, for now I will just use an old 120GB HD I have laying around. My ideal boot time is 11sec or under...
I will also start dynamat work this weekend. 40+lbs of isolation material should help to keep some noises down ^^ hopefully~
