So I called Peachtree earlier this evening to talk through a couple questions I had, and I end up talking with David Solomon, one of the owners. First, I love that when I call or email companies like Peachtree or Schiit I typically get one of the owners on the line. I've had similar experiences with jason at Schiit and Michael at CEntrance, and I'm not going to rule out the possibility that my encounters with those guys have rose-colored my evaluation of their products, not consciously of course but maybe subconsciously?
My simple questions about a USB > spdif converter they sell ended up turning into a 45 conversation about gear and audio in general, he even ended up giving me a couple tips on my Magnepans! I love talking to guys that have been in this hobby for decades that are still enthusiastic about audio. He wasn't making a sale or anything, you can tell he's just genuinely enthusiastic and helpful, would probably still have me on the phone talking my ear off if I let him.
The funny thing is, he actually talked me OUT of buying their USB converter given my application.
Psssst, anyone looking at their DAC-IT or a similar DAC may want to hold off a couple weeks
