A Personal Letter From Daniel Jacques, President, Focal Naim America, Focal Naim Canada, and Distribution Daniel Jacques

Quite simply, my job was a passion and I loved it so much - and I still do - that I could not fathom why I would deprive myself of this pleasure.

David's Take: Missed by a Hair - Sony UBP-X1100ES Universal Disc Player

David's Take: Missed by a Hair - Sony UBP-X1100ES Universal Disc Player

The UBP-X1100ES is Sony's premium 4K UHD Blu-ray offering, replacing the X1000ES that came before it, a higher-end stablemate to the unfeasibly fine UBP-X800m2 ($400). In terms of performance and value, the latter is one of the best value UHD Blu-ray players available, so clearly this more expensive sibling needs to be truly special to warrant a premium $900 price.

HIFI AUDIO: Why a DAC? - Everything You Need to Know About the Least-Understood Audio Component

The acronym D-A-C is turning up with increasing frequency in audio circles. But it's time to ask ourselves: do consumers even know what a ‘DAC' is, or why they should buy one? Even in the trade, do we truly understand how DACs work, and what makes one better than another?
