Olive 4HD

Postby spacey » Thu Dec 08, 2011 8:10 pm

Just bought one of these. It may look to be expensive at first glance, but for what it does and how it sounds, It's quite a bargain!

Much better than any MAC config I've tried and heard.

Using the digital coax out into the Perreaux 150i DAC.

Ello Matt, its F'in coolio. SO nice to be away from Apple's grip. And it truely makes a high end MAC sound crap. I tried a few different computer setups but i just didn't want all the shite that goes with it. This is like a Naim HDX, only better and with 2TB storage. Its programs, GUI interfaces and method work faultlessly. Not a glitch in sight. Its also 24/192 via coax out, and theres no need to faff around with any output settings. Just load the music sort out a few missing bits of artwork and your there.

PS - so whats the 'BIG' change coming :)

Hi Spacey

It certainly sounds good.
What's the build quality like? It looks good from the pics.

You were quick spotting my signature ;)
I'll post in my system thread soon.

Cheers

Build quality is excellent, so is fit and finish. A really well thought out product. IMHO.

Post with pics too :D
