hi-fi news’ nuggets

IN MEMORIAMWe are saddened to report that erstwhile Hi-Fi News contributor John Bamford has died. He passed away peacefully at home in early September, remaining upbeat and good company to the last. John began his hi-fi career in the early 1980s when he became assistant editor on Hi-Fi Answers. He then edited Hi-Fi Choice before joining Pioneer GB and later Meridian Audio. When he left Meridian he took up the pen again, briefly working as a staffer on HFN before becoming a freelance contributor and one of the mainstays of the magazine’s review pages.

dCS BartókCAMBRIDGE INNOVATORS ANNOUNCE UPSAMPLING NETWORK DAC AND HEADPHONE AMPLIFIERWhat does Bartók have in common with Rossini? That might be hard to answer as a musical question but with the latest product from dCS it’s easy: the £9999 dCS Bartók borrows design cues and technical features from dCS’s Rossini range. The result is a network DAC that combines a UPnP network card and dCS Ring DAC with a headphone amplifier that provides unbalanced and balanced outputs via ¼in jack and 4-pin XLR sockets respectively. While the headphone amplifier is ‘unique’, dCS says little else about it other than it ‘works extremely well with both high and low impedance headphones’. Maximum output is 1.4W into 33ohm or 0.15W into 300ohm loads.Data Conversion Systems Ltd, Cambs, 01954 233950; www.dcsltd.co.uk, www.absolutesounds.comHalo effectPARASOUND HINTS…
