In their review of the Bluesound Pulse 2 and Pulse Flex, Wired concludes with their Rating:
6/10—Strong audio and design, but the speakers are remarkably challenging to get going.

This list of favorites has quite a few favorite female vocalists. It also contains several live albums. There is something special about live albums, where attention is paid to the quality of the recording. I tried to include less known albums of well known artists. I hope you find something new and fun in this list.

It means light. Light is used to couple the digital to the analog boards instead of metal/wire so that electrical noise stays away from the analog circuitry where it can do all kinds of harm we can hear. The "A" in DAC stands for Analog which seems to go without saying but some people get stuck on the "D" making the false assumption that digital is "perfect". As perfect as free-range unicorns.

Barn Update (!) 07.19.17: the stunning dCS Network Bridge has taken up permanent residence in my system. Why? Because I like it. I like it because it lets me get deeper into my music, leaving thoughts of reproduction and the like in the rear-view more so.
