Amarra - ultra fidelity software
i have just been browsing computer audiophile's website, and found this: http://www.amarraaudio.com/
it's software that piggy-backs itunes, so you only use itunes for searching/playlists etc. and the amarra software plays the file.
it isn't available yet, but the claims made by the maker and comp.audiophile's head-honcho, are very interesting.
i thought bit perfect meant bit perfect, but apparently not!
not sure what i think of the computeraudiophile website though, parts of it made my head spin. russ andrews make a usb cable!
