Yes, when I get the Bitzie, I shall order the bundle as well. An audio chain can only be as strong as the weakest aspect of the system, after all.

I'm really trying to wait until the loaner arrives but all this talk is making it difficult.........againWink
The bundle makes sense from a financial point of view and probably from a synergy point of view as well.

 Definitely! Not only the Lautus USB, but I found that the CuSat50/Proprius/Spatia combination has great synergy  . . .

I'm confident that Graham has enough experience with cables now that he knows which types are most suitable for particular applications. In the case of connecting the Bitzie DAC to a computer, the user simply needs a cable that is "transparent", which won't alter the signals at any point. Every material has its own resistivity, inductance, capacitance and resonant frequency values so Graham would only try to select a cable that would leave the input signal as unaltered as possible. However, the Bitzie input may be limited by contacts and metallic conductor types inside the computer, before the Lautus USB cable goes to the Bitzie. I'm not sure.

This evening I received the Bitzie DAC and the Lautus USB cable. I have just briefly listened to the DAC, and will not say anything about it for the moment. But, I also connected the Lautus USB cable into my old equipment to have a direct comparison with my old cable. O Boy, I had expected a very good cable, but this cable is spectacular. It is almost incredible. And, so you just know, I am comparing it with a well known supposed to be very high end USB cable. The Lautus is an absolute bargain if you ask me for my opinion. I am going to order a second cable.

I'm going to order the Bitzie bundle tomorrow. I have no reason to keep waiting; I'm just being lazy. LOL It's definitely going to be worth its £400 value. Then I can write a comprehensive review for it in a few weeks, with some pictures maybe. I want to do Graham the honour of seeing a detailed, full review of his Bitzie after all of his efforts.
