  1. I know what I do need in my setup... So this 1.27V RMS isn't enough for me.... My current DAC has 5V RMS output and I do use digital volume control which is at -10 dB or higher when listening loud.
  2. Hope your power amp doesn't need more than 1.27V RMS... But I am really curious to see your review.
  3. The ECD Fractal has max output voltage of 1.27 V RMS, if your power amp has a lot of gain this could work, but most power amps do need more. In my setup I would definately need a pre amp with the Fractal DAC... Which is one reason which holds me back from buying it...
  4. You mention people prefering the Wavelight. However when I read the Headmania review, there has been said the Hydra.Vox/Zap combo was the first DAC he was thinking to replace his long term DAC (MSB Analog DAC), where he already had the Wavelight in his equipment list.... Are there some reviews where they compare Wavelight and Hydra.Vox/Zap?
  5. Orchard PecanPi, it's extremely good. Value is out of this world. Compared it to Elac DDP2 (5 times the price) and can't really tell which one is better.
  6. NuForce STA-200 power amp is without a doubt the biggest bargain I can think of. I've have owned quite a few different amps costing up to 3k USD new, the STA-200 beats all of them easily. It's extremely good sounding even on absolute level. If you need a new power amp, grab one if you can find it!
  7. George, I've seen you also ordered a Yggy. I am really curious how that one compares to the Onyx.
  8. Can they compete with Yggy? I will look into them, there is a version with pre-amp too, isn't it? Or Audio GD R2R 7. I've read it smashes the Holo Spring Level 3. But I didn't find comparison to the Yggy... I am after a DAC which can reproduce the emotion of a recording. Something which can draw me into the music and can give me goosebumbs. ?Transparancy and deep soundstage is also a must. I don't like the soundstage to be upfront.
  9. Nobody? Chris has tested both for CA, perhaps he can give his comment?
  10. I've read stellar reviews about both of those DAC's. Anyone who was able to compare them? (not necesarrily at the same moment) If there is another DAC which I should add to my list, please let me know. (PCM only is fine, no Sabre please) Thanks in advance, Mark
  11. Is there a choice to have it setup as Roon Bridge or Roon Ready End Point? What's the difference?
  12. Thanks k-man, I am already searching for hours to find how to do it... :-( Perhaps someone here can help... I do have a Velop Mesh Wifi network connected via LAN to the Internet Router. I would like to use a 2nd Router, which will be located in my listening room, which I connect with LAN cables to my Mac Mini and USBridge (and my streaming module within my NAD M12). This 2nd Router should connect to the excisting Velop Wifi network, to be able to have access to the internet. However, I don't want to 2nd Router to interfere with my excisting Mesh Wifi network. So: I want to use the
  13. Unfortunately there is no (easy) possibility to wire my mac mini or USBridge to my excisting router.... So in this case the solution as suggested by k-man is perhaps the best for me. I should have a (wifi) router around somewhere. What I would like to avoid is to create problems with my excisting mesh (Velop) Wifi network, as I managed to have this working trouble free.
  14. I am trying to understand, this way you are making a small network within a network? You are saying more simple, that means there are different possibilities to achieve my goal?
