    All you need is an M1 Mac mini.....buy a refurbished unit to save money. You can run Roon and HQPlayer on it and it performs really well and runs the HQPlayer settings I recommended to you.

    If not too late, I would love to get in on this loaner. I am feeling an itch to move up from the Yggdrasil LIM to something else in the $5k and under range and seriously considering the May. Figure it would be fun to try this out first as I have never tried a NOS DAC.

    gotcha!

    It’s never too late to join a loaner tour. But you’re just in time for the WA leg of the tour so it works perfect.

    Thanks for adding me, but looks like I spoke too soon and can be removed. A Holo May came up for sale locally and I couldn't help myself and snagged it.

    @Tchoupitoulas If I could go after you, that would be nice. I'm not home much this week, and I'll be visiting family all of next week.

    Sure thing, @Cellist88. FedEx's delivery to me is scheduled for today and I'd be happy to send it to you this time next week. We can coordinate about the timing via PM.

    Edit: I've now received the Spring 3 KTE.

    Quick update: Cellist88 asked to be skipped and I'm waiting to hear back from @Zimmer266 for contact info - I'll ship out the loaner as soon as I have the address details.

    Can I add you later in the tour so you can still hear it? Geography doesn’t matter.

    I didn't hear back from @Zimmer266.

    Since @Soups is going to be out of town for a couple of days, he switched places with Vansen, who will then ship it to Soups when he's done.

    I shipped the DAC to @Vansen this morning.

    I swapped the order in the list. And left zimmer in there to see if he shows up and still wants to hear it.

    Yes, sorry for the delay. I've lost my spot in the queue, but I will visit regularly once again.

    Some oddball changes to a number of systems around here. The most exciting might be the return of the Pass A5 from the manufacturer upcoming this week. The other is the unexpected goodness of a Precision Fidelity M8 Hybrid amp.

    I tried a Denafrips Aries for a bit, on loan from a local friend, but after a while missed the Holo Spring 1. When I returned the Aries, well, he missed the Holo as well.

    I can move you down the list if you still want to hear it (and will be responsible with it and communicate, not disappear).
