  3. Röyksopp – Melody A.M.

  6. Most likely because there's nothing much to say. It will sound great to most people but they don't want to cannibalize their UDP-205 audiophile sales. I'm sure we'll be seeing a lot more reviews of the UDP-203 and 205 after the New Year.
  7. The UPD-203 is out now – they've released the stats, etc. on the product page. The transport, DACs, user interface, etc. are all updated. First review (not much about audio quality): http://www.techhive.com/article/3151112/home-bluray/oppo-udp-203-4k-uhd-blu-ray-player-review-a-class-act-with-awesome-audio-capabilities.html The UDP-205 is coming out in early 2017.
  8. Pixies – Trompe le Monde
  9. There might be something wrong with the site's certificate. I didn't get a warning, but it was slow to load.
  10. Yes, those Naim guys are so culty. My Google search immediately found a thread where the moderators silenced discussion of his stuff.
  11. I was skimming some hi-fi magazine this weekend and I noticed the announcement of this product. Teddy Pardo is mostly known for his aftermarket power supplies for Naim products. Does anybody have experience with this amp or his other boxes? There's very little useful info on the product page (e.g., gain or power), and no reviews yet.
  12. The Airtight Garage by Moebius (Jean Giraud)
  13. Lost in the '80s... Fleetwood Mac – Tango in the Night Prince – Dirty Mind
