Stellar Gain Cell DAC & Audirvana-Plus

Recommended Posts

Anyone out there using these two Stellar Gain Cell DAC &  Audirvana-Plus? Having Problems.

I feel like I lost a lot of DR and miss and high's are harse and connecting the REGEN didn't seem to make a difference. I have tried other's Pref setting and to me the default A+ sounds best but not great. Two changes I haven't made yet is using XLR cables into my Power amp and adding the Parasound Pre amp to the mix.

My Set Up:
WD usb2 2TB external HD Only Music aiff’s on it + Time Machine BackUp of MacBook Pro ( I only use it for one thing and that is to serve music to my MBP & DAC)
MacBook Pro 2013 8GB RAM 256 internal Flash drive usb3 and thunderbolt
AudirvanaPlus Always very latest Version
Oyaide neo d+ Class A USB 2.0 to MacBook Pro from (REGEN) 

     (Parasound P5 HALO Preamp not in use)
Stellar Gain Cell DAC
MusicLink Transparent Interface (Directional) Cables
Reference B&K 200.2 S2 Power amp 225W RMS
Paradigm Studio 100v.3 series speakers BiWired

I had a Stellar DAC. Its not normally harsh. 


If you get and try a Schiit Eitr you would probably be able to do without the Audiravana and the Regen.   The Eitr was developed after those other means came out.  http://www.schiit.com/products/eitr

It all depends upon in what dimension of life one finds themselves living in.  For, one man's music is another man's noise.
