Scott at Computer Audio Design knows a thing or two about getting the best out of your zeros and ones and I’ve been following his advice on computer set up for audio for years.

At this year’s North West Audio Show he and Isabel (Happy Birthday) were demonstrating their 1543 MK II DAC, CAD AUDIO TRANSPORT and their innovative Ground Control boxes, including a new multi output version.
