    I've been having Type 6 lately. Does that mean anything?

    Edit: Found this page.

    Normal stools for one person may be abnormal for another. The degree of normality is determined by the anatomy of the anal canal.

    Ok...so I have been thinking about this lately...

    So the idea is to have a bunch of resistors and each one tied to a switch. So that means all these switches would have to engage at the same time. What if the timing of this switching was not at the same exact time. This could explain the wavyness and crazy plots this thing is putting out.

    Looks like the the DIY boar is off their product list on their website.

    For practical purposes this is not really a concern. The switches and shift registers involved operate so much faster than the read-out periodicity that they would have long since settled by the time the output is used.

    I still think it's more likely to be a product of parts tolerances being too loose without sufficient attention paid to compensating for that in the overall design. That, or the DSP code/tuning is wonky.

    Amazes me how many people on HF are defending the thing without ever having heard it though. Well, actually, I'm not amazed ... that seems to be par for the course over there.

    It's a shame, that Vansen chap looked like he knew a good thing when he saw it.

    @Vansen just keeping the dream alive.

    You just keep queering the offers so you can secretly listen to it. The truth is out (there?).

    Maybe the S19 is just so much more resolving than all other DACs that it reveals the imperfections in your recordings really clearly.

    Oh wait, sorry, mistook this for a Chord thread on HF. Ignore me. Carry on.
