  1. Can you elaborate on the difference between Sonica and PS Directstream? Sent from my iPhone using Computer Audiophile
  2. David, As someone who is on the fence about going the Aurender route vs your way (Sonicorbiter SE or microRendu) I'm wondering if you've been able to compare the two paths in terms of SQ. I haven't been able to find a thread on CA where someone has compared an N100 vs your method on their home system. Thanks, Les
  3. May I have the code for the rock track? Thanks, Les
  4. Thanks but I think you misinterpreted my question as I'm not looking to stay with Naim due to lack of DSD. I'm seeking opinions as to whether the PCM SQ of PS Audio DSD or Lampizator 5 or 7 would actually improve on my current DAC.
  5. I own a Naim Dac which I’ve had for three years. It’s the only external DAC I’ve ever had. Its powered by the Naim XPS. I listen to files loaded onto a USB stick plugged into the DAC. I’ve finally decided to upgrade the system so I can access my library instantly. So a NAS > Server/Renderer > DAC setup is in my very near future. I figured that a change in DAC was in order to accommodate DSD and I’m contemplating either a PS Audio DSD or Lampi 5 or 7. I’ll obviously attempt to listen to the new equipment before making a decision. But I was hoping for an opinion from your kind selves regarding the following: I’ve always loved the sound of the Naim Dac.. From a technological standpoint its an ancient machine. Will PCM actually sound better on one of the newer DACs I’ll be auditioning?
  6. Mr. Wang, I have two DACs, one for PCM and one for DSD. Both are connected to my preamp. If I connect the Aries SPDIF output to the PCM DAC and the Aries USB output to the DSD DAC can I use the Aries iPad software to switch playback between the two DACs? Thanks, Les
  7. That's a possibility as I've already auditioned Naim gear at home courtesy of my dealer. Thanks.
  8. Boy Eloise, you are right about that. There's days-worth of reading there. Thanks for the tip.
  9. Ah, but as I don't own either I was hoping someone on CA would have done this already and could offer an opinion about sound quality. My dealer only claims that it is easy to hear a difference.
  10. Has anyone had a chance to compare the SQ between the two? I've been going back and forth for quite some time between the dedicated server approach vs Mac Mini Audirvana approach. I own mostly Naim gear: DAC with external PS, pre amp with external PS, and power amp. The dealer I use claims rips made through Unitiserve blow away a rip made in XLD. Les
  11. Now that Loki has been out for some time I'm wondering if users can provide a few more reviews. Thanks, Les
  12. Miska, Can you elaborate on your Naim DAC reference? It sounds like you're not a fan.
  13. Are you all saying that converting everything to DSD is the way to go?
