  1. I can understand Danny's 'Amazing'. I mean I get it that this preamp can be just that for many people. But, I will also like to share my opinion for some may share my musical taste. I love the details and transparency and just slightly dark tonality when it comes to a preamp. For me, personally, C53 (or even higher McIntosh preamp) lacked the micro details and transparency and was overly warm. Again, different cup of tea for different people. But, I totally agree it's physically a beautiful equipment. The build quality is so desirable. I always wanted a McIntosh, but none worked for me so far. Beautiful sounds - that I totally agree.
  2. Thanks for great review! The rest of your system looks fantastic! Hope you will post your experience with R2R listening as well. Thanks.
  3. I cannot wait to hear your comparison between May and T+A Dac8.
  4. Transistor vs resistor - it's the same thing. Per EVGA website, they used Audio Note resistors and caps. https://www.evga.com/products/product.aspx?pn=712-P1-AN01-KR Do you work for EVGA or Audio Note? Audio Note - however awesome they are, they are not responsible for this card crashing. Sure, they are to have provided input on the sound and analog components such as the transistor - but we are not talking about the sound here. We are talking about the bugginess of the driver/firmware, which is solely responsible of EVGA in my humble opinion. So, will you please tell me what else I 'couldn't be more wrong' and what you know about their 'heavy involvement'?
  5. I believe not. If they did test thoroughly, it would have played nicely with all major players using various music format. It's safe to assume they did not test it thoroughly - otherwise it won't had all these crashes and bugs. Give it to an engineer who only used itune and WMP in MP3/wav files entire his life, he would said - Yes it's working perfectly fine. Give to this community like here, where we use Roon, HQP, Qobuz, Nirvana, Jriver, Linux, ASIO, WASAPI, DSD 64, 128, 256, 512, they would had ironed out the bugs before the release. Also, Audio Note has nothing to do here. Audio Note sold transistors to EVGA and let EVGA use its brand name - nothing else.
  6. Wow, awesome reference materials there. Thanks, Miska!
  7. Great to see official EVGA support is here. Here is what I have observed, which I hope you can rely to the development team. The card clearly targeted for the audiophile community, but it was tested by none-audiophile people or someone with a very limited audiophile usage pattern of the card. Perhaps, the card was tested by non-audiophile engineers who do not have any knowledge about various usage pattern of usage of an audiophile sound card. I hope QA process going forward will include the audiophile like people in this forum - well they are the best, especially Miska, aren't they? Or, just send the card to Miska prior to release under certain arrangement. I wholeheartedly recommend it. I work with IT dept, so I can 'guess' at least 3 major problems in EVGA's QA process with this card.
  8. Wow, this is new. An amplifier built to do bi-amp by the design. Kudos for the old company trying something never done before! Hopefully, someone will review how it works in the real world. And, I really hope the next version will look better.
  9. I hope Amazon pays attention this wonderful article. The findings here would have taken Amazon at least 1.5 years using its own staffs.
  10. Interesting.. The log mentions about the Spy tool.. Well.. it sounds like a spy tool. * New: added latency reported by the device latency control to the Spy tool statistics
  11. This looks better & cheaper to me. SMSL M500 https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000085198125.html?spm=2114.12010615.8148356.1.399b3cf605M0ay
  12. Or, perhaps we have a super hearing. For others, Audeze planar isn't any different, but for us it maybe missing something completely. I think an easy test for you is to try another Audeze LCD line up. For my experience, Audeze LCD 2C was uber completely lifeless - complete lack of emotion. But, I'm sure that so many raving reviews are also true to their ears.
