My system sounds good for what it is. New Digital has me happy as does a better tuner than I have ever owned. It seems 2009 was the year for me to upgrade my front end. The new Talk has me amazed and the MD106T has shown me what FM is about. I finally feel I have a well balanced system which I would simply leave be at this point. I'm done. Famous last words I know but I can't think where this system is week accept the room which I have learnt to properly modify.My system sounds good. Then again my system 10 years ago, completely different smaller system, sounded good.Other than selling this system and starting all over again , what would you do next?
The sound I am now getting is truly glorious! I’ve been a power cable junky for years but the Audio Art Statement e2plus cables are the nicest cables I have ever used in my system and I have tried most everything over the years ranging up to $1500-$2000. The Audio Art cables are a good to excellent quality cables and Rob Fritz the owner of the company is a pleasure to do business with.
My system with the Directstream dac beginning to warm up has a very seductive sound which I never really experienced before. I am reminded of the sound I used to have when I had a vinyl record collection years before digital but the sound I am getting now is far superior. And to think my Directstream will only sound better as it burns in over the next few hundred hours play. Very exciting and I’m getting 4 Audio Art Statement Signature e2plus cables next week.Should be sweet.
I’ve been listening to my system for 12 hours now!!! I may like the new Directstream dac. The addition of a couple of DH Lab Corona cables add a nice clarity as well. In a week I will be getting a couple of Audio Art Statement Signature e2plus cables which should be nice.
I am now going to make a cable change in that I will be replacing my Audio Art Statement 1 cables with 2 of the new Audio Art top of their line power cables and 2 DH Labs Corona cables which should be an upgrade over the older Audio Art Statement 1 cables. Once again I don’t know what to expect but it will be a fun exercise to play with new cables.
As time has passed and with more burn in time on my headphones and headphone amp the sound is very nice but even still my main speaker system is very exciting. It will be fun to add the Directstream dac but the Perfectwave dac is still nice.
As nice as my headphones sound my speaker system,Hales-Pass,sound nicer! That says volumes for my main speaker system as the Lcd4 phones with Moon 430HA amp are a beautiful combo. I’ve been listening to my Lcd4 headphones all week but today I’m running the Hales.
With perhaps 5 or 6 hours play on my Lcd4 headphones the sound is spectacular with my Auralic Taurus Mk2 headphone amp. I will be getting a Moon 430ha headphone amp this Friday and I’m very excited for it.
I received my Lcd4 phones yesterday!! Nice out of the box and getting better with play. I am getting a Moon 430 ha amp but my Auralic Taurus Mk2 amp is nice itself. It’s getting easier to stay at home in these crazy times.
I've changed my 6 Sons Audio Vision Quest cable on my tuner to a DH Labs Red Wave with Wattgate Blue Dot connectors and I'm enjoying the cable. The Red Wave is essentially the same as my Audio Art Statement 1 cables but with Wattgates instead of Furutech connectors. My system still sounds good.
