Quote ken long:
Interesting note about Orpheus as I've tried both and couldn't tell the difference (though not in A/B conditions).
It's a very subtle difference, but even the Prism guys seem to think the orpheus is the best converter they've done to date.
What I really really like about the 8XR is the modular aspect.
Absolutely -- that's it's key selling point, the versatility of interfacing.
Wish they'd enter the entry level market so I could afford one
I fear that if the built down to the entry level market it wouldn't sound like a Prism anymore. There's a reason their stuff costs what it does.
