Our thanks to Geshelli Labs for making available their brand new DAC, just released a few weeks ago. It is likely the first separate component DAC introduced outside of China using the latest AKM4499EX + AK4191 dual chipset. AKM, a leading DAC manufacturer, had their entire plant burn down in October 2020. The new dual chipset has been highly anticipated and just began shipping late in 2022 on a very limited basis. Geshelli Labs products have received a lot of positive reviews and are very affordable. The new 4499EX + 4191 DAC starts at $429 and offers upgrades/add-ons of USB, alternative op amps, and custom wood design cases and glass. All DACs are individually built and tested to order.
The system will feature either Steve Merryweather's late 40s RCA Horns (if available) used at the March and May meetings or KEF Q350s, which share many of the positive characteristics of the LS50 with more bass. John's tube electronics used at the March meeting (DAC, amp, and preamp) will be used and includes an 8-chip NOS DAC with a regulated tube power supply. We will have both Qobuz and Tidal available for streaming.
Look forward to seeing you all this Sunday.
