Having my eyes on Rossini for a long time. After a long deliberation, working out the commercials, finally made the decision today and ordered Rossini Dac (Apex) and Rossini Transport.
Though it may sound stupid but I still find sound quality music playing in CD/SACD superior than music stored in a server (and then streamed). Hence had to shell out that humongous amount for the transport. However, had a demo of Vivaldi transport with Rossini dac. Gorgeous !!! Even if 70% of that is possible through Rossini I would be more than happy.
Thanks to all forum members here whose opinion and experience helped me in coming to the conclusion.
Also a huge thanks to the dealer Graham Thomas (from Music Lovers Audio, Berkley California, USA) who patiently arranged for 2 home demos for me with Rossini and Bartok without any expectation and never pushing me for anything. And also for working with me on the final commercials.
Expecting to get the units delivered in 4 to 6 weeks time.
