      Added to the DSP and setup was the tuning part. Felt that an helping hand would make a difference. Again Kannan sir and Santosh pitched in and offered their assistance.

      Did you happen to explore Zapco HDSP-Z8 V PRO, the latest one has a built in hi resolution audio player it seems

      No. Was not aware of it. Any idea on the pricing as I believe it will cost a bomb in India.

      Now back to the story line...
      In the meantime one of my other friend who had returned from the US installed the 80PRS (the one he had got from US) in his car. Oh what a difference it made. That tempted me to get the same rather than opting for a DSP.

      Though my investment would have been less with 80PRS, I decided against it due to the following reasons:


      • Carrying the HU to my next car would be daunting considering that the current generation cars have integration to the core (e.g. XUV).
      • Next was incapability of the HU to play FLAC.


      Though my FLAC collections are less, I was pretty sure that I would get hold of it in the near future. Hence I stood to my guns.

      By this time, my vacation plans were finalized and had to be content with my current ICE. Never did I realize that this trip would help me reaching my goal.

      Just a couple of days before my trip, I put in GH classifieds Wanted section on my requirement for an used DSP. This was the turning point in the purchase. There were some few questions asked and I got an offer for JL TWK 88 from fellow GH member Pr_007. Was almost finalizing it when I got another offer from fellow member on his sale of Alpine H800 with RUX. I was sold on to it. This DSP was on my radar but only if a Kuruvi was willing to get it for me; definitely was not willing to purchase it India. I started the negotiations. The fellow member was willing to sell the DSP and also offered to sell his Fiio X5. The deal was sweet.

      There was a major twist in the whole purchase - the GHian had to hold on his sale as his cousin was interested in the DSP. But still the Fiio was on sale. I was not that keen to take the Fiio without the DSP as it did not add any value to my existing setup. Hence left it at that stage.

      By this time I was already in my week long vacation trip with my family for a week long vacation. The DSP and the deal took a back seat on a temp basis. The ICE was crooning all along the trip and we all reached the final leg. It was at this time, I decided to ping the seller on the sale status. My confidence level on getting the DSP and Fiio was really low as there was no update. Still thought it would be worth a try.
