Last night I was invited to a special demonstration of the Hegel line of amplifiers at a store called Hear no Evil Hifi in Westminster, Colorado. Although the demo focused on their entire line of amps ranging from the $2000 entry integrated up to their 15k mono blocks, everything was running through the Kef blades and I wanted to give their presentation a look. Hegel did a great job showcasing the changes made by going from a 70 wpc integrated up to a 1100wpc mono block monster and everything they offer in between. All in all, it was a great demo hosted by a great new audio shop.
However, the night got better when the "door prizes" were announced. I was the winner of a brand new Hegel HD11 DAC! A dac is something i've been increasing interested in trying out with my squeezebox as well as my marantz sacd player. At the whopping cost of FREE, this is the perfect way for me to get in the game.
Any suggestions on the most effective hookup via the squeezebox touch? I plan to try and use the app and use the USB out and see how that works for me.
