No worries, I don't plan to do any serious listening until weekend after this coming one. I will be teaching DFSS in Eugene all next week, get back Saturday the 21st.

Figured I would leave the 121 on and have the Macbook streaming content to it 24/7 for six days straight.

A custom battery powered PSU ... hhhmmm. I wonder how the results would be with the Wadia 121.

Has anyone heard of Red Wine Audio?

Oh,Yes. You could have them built a setup for you specifically for the 121. Kinda pricey, though. Probably run you about $1200, I would guess.

I never know with you; does that mean something else is in the works ...or are you thinking of this Wadia project? :-)

Karl...I remember reading Jeff Dorgay's review of the Black Lightining (I believe he used it on a Nagra BPS phono pre as well as a few other things) and he raved about it.
