Here’s a blast from the past. My opinion on firmware made more than 5 years ago, still stands today. To get a proper context, here’s the blog post that spurred my response, reproduced in full below:
Wait what? Isn’t Snakeoil OS released in the form of a firmwares? Indeed it is. I’m pawned for shipping something that is incomplete. In my defense Snakeoil OS is a one man operation. It is extremely difficult to do this alone, try brainstorming with yourself on what to do next. Ergo have to get Snakeoil out there, get you people involved in sending me feedback will help improve the whole experience of Snakeoil OS. There are still a lot of things in the pipeline for Snakeoil which I hope will be realised in time.
Thank you all for using Snakeoil, and if you have any suggestions on how to make Snakeoil OS better, please share it with me so others will get the same benefits!
2016 has been a bad year for a lot of people I know. Many icons \in the music industry did not live to see 2017. Bad things happen, it is these bad things that make us appreciate the good things in life that much more. This is true in Hifi, and is even truer in life. Start living, and happy listening.
As the clock tick past 2016, a moment of silence for the poor souls who did not live through 2016, people who died from acts of war and other horrors. May they rest in peace.
For what it’s worth, I still don’t have a CE BD player.
Merry Christmas everybody. For folks who have a horrible 2016, may 2017 be better. I leave you all with the following meme. This is the first Christmas season I am made aware of this Meme, and now I hear his voice everywhere I go.
Accuphase released it’s latest flagship DAC in September 2016 - the DC-950.
With the release there is now a number of Accuphase DC-37 available in the second hand market as existing owners move to the newer DAC. And I got one of them! Yeah, I cannot afford a DC-950.
This is a review of a well run in second hand Accuphase DC-37. I took ownership of this unit sometime in Sept 2016, so already have a good 3 months to get to know this.
And so far, I’m loving it! Credit goes out to Tasso for loaning me the PS3, allowing me to rip my SACDs to DSDs. Credit again goes to Tasso for selling me the DC-37 reviewed right now. No prizes for guessing what Tasso ended up with.
