Default Audioengine A2+ announced now with built-in DAC and labeled outputs

http://www.stereophile.com/content/a...op-loudspeaker

For $250 it's not a bad deal at all considering the quality of the A2. Plus now it also has a labeled RCA output instead of the hidden output feature of the original A2. Wish it came with toslink input for the dac though instead of USB.

Audioquest cables are garbage. A real audiophile interconnect is the Kimber KS1036.

Impressive technology. It's got hyper-pure, molecularly optimized Black Pearl silver. However, I am not too sure about the orthogonally braided matrix. It might confuse some of the electrons.

Prices start at $1995. for the shorter version of the cable for those of us on a budget.

They thought of everything.

Look how much influence I have caused in this community. Ha ha ha ha.



cheez
I noticed in your sig that you have changed your mind AGAIN on the speakers to get and are now going for the CMS65. Those are higher powered speakers and this goes AGAINST the teachings of Audiotruth who has said repeatedly that lower powered speakers always sound better. Why are you doing this, he will be disappointed. Are you becoming an unbeliever?
