Movin' On Up...

I won't be blogging over the next few days because I'm moving across town. Once I arrive, I'll be eager to set up my new (and much bigger) listening room. My new house has 10' ceilings, so it will be interesting to see how this affects the sound of my system.

After I've settled, I have a lot on my plate. I'm ready to offer my final reviews of the Heed Obelisk SI integrated amplifier and X2 outboard power supply, which will include evaluations of the DACtilus DAC card. I've also spent the last few days listening to the Obelisk without the X2, so I'll be able to comment on that as well. I'll also wrap up my observations on the Achromat and Achroplat from Funk Firm.

After that, I'm off to New York for the second AXPONA trade show, which will begin on June 24. So by the end of the month, I'll blog plenty of reports from the show. Since I have to send the Heed and Funk Firm gear back to Dan Muzquiz of Blackbird Audio Gallery, hopefully I'll be picking up some more gear after AXPONA. I'll give you a hint: it has TOOBS. (Thank God...I've missed the glowing little buggers in my system.)


  1. Congratulations on buying a new house. Always nice to own a better place to live in (and listen to music). Best of luck...with the sound!

  2. Mark,

    DOn't know if you are free any night of the show but if you are interested maybe we can put together a reader meet and greet now that you are coming up to my neck of the woods.
