I bought the purple clad BC509 that Masluck was selling on behalf of Dave Iaria. Sounds like he'd be glad to know it's being put to good use in a BC-centric system. Anyway, I was expecting good things from the DAC because every time I plug a Blue Circle thing or thingee into my system everything suddenly sounds much better. But I was caught off guard by just how much music this thing makes. It also produces a music in the room with you quality that people generally expect from analogue. I'm using it with a Rega Saturn as transport and a Squeezebox. The Saturn sounded quite good on its own, but the difference with the BC509 is dramatic. And the Squeezebox is now fully listenable, though I have a very non-audiophile computer audio setup.
My mind was almost equally blown when I added a 6x Sillycone filter a few months ago. I love the whole stealth hi fi thing with the PVC pipe.
Has anyone experimented with different digital cables (coax) on the BC509? Right now I am using something very basic.

I know we have a least 2 BC99.5's for sale from Dave's estate. I think one is XLR and the other RCA. Send me a PM if interested. I personally use an Antipodes Khokiri RCA for the SPDIF connection between my Oppo BDP-83 and the BC509. A very nice, yet expensive cable. Others on the forum have highly praised the BC99.5 cable in the past. I should grab one and audition it.
All lite. I know the BC501ob LOC is still available because a BC fan sent me an e-mail to ask about it tonight.
Jeddy: You know what it takes to push cable? Hype, hype and more hype. I don't have the personality to hype most thing. I get tire and turn off really fast if any salesman try to sell me something and hype the crap out of it. The more they hype and push, the more I push back and tell them to take a hike. So........ I can't and won't able to do it myself to anyone.
