According to customers who listened to both servers the Taiko Audio SGM Extreme seems to offer much better SQ than the SGM Evo.

BTW, the turntable is more musical.

I already had SGM Extreme.

 

But because Extreme quality is invincible, I don't post its quality yet.

 

After one month, I'll post Extreme specific contents.

Welcome here, you are "Esotar" on WBF?

Do you know if Taiko Audio will demonstrate the Extreme at HE Munich?

Thanks

Of cause~!!!

 

But Extreme Demo in Munich will be not helpful, I think.

 

Extreme must be famous in WBF and AS.

If I understand correctly Taiko Audio will be exhibitor in Munich?

AFAIK, as SGM importer for Korea you need to have a professional signature here at AS.

Turntable looks a lot more groovey.

Image is shifted heavily to the right for the Evo recording so you are not getting a good centered image like you have on the turntable sound. I would doubt that was the experience in the room so maybe how it was recorded. It does not help in determining which sounds better.

How do you know the difference in quality of each source material? Also, it seems both are not level matched. And, as sligolad mentioned the digital is image shifted to the left so not apples to apples. Also, if you want to compare analog vs. digital sources what's the cost of each complete source fed to the preamp including the DAC, cables, etc. for digital vs. the cartridge, phono preamp, cables, isolation, etc. for analog? My guess is the analog (as is in almost every case) is 1.5+ times the cost of the digital, but no one seems to account for the full cost and ends up stating ignorantly, "analog is better".
