British Dacs dissapointment
davidian posted a topic in DAC - Digital to Analog ConversionHey folks, long story short for the last 6 months I tried to find a nice DAC since the upgraditis bug bit me again. First I tried it with the Chord QuteHD ( pre-owned) and I found the sound a bit digital and not that dynamic, then I bought the Naim DAC V1 to also match my naim nait 5Si, and again big disappointment... the soundstage shrank a lot, bass disappeared together with the fun, kind of disappointing since I always believed that Naim makes very enjoyable and fun to listen products. Then I connected my cheap but competent HRT microstreamer and I got all the fun again, this little sucker its really good and makes me think that I dont need to upgrade at all, but still miss some things I loved the sparkly highs of the Naim DAC V1 and the big soundstage and airiness of the Chord. So the search continues...maybe some of you could help me to find the perfect DAC that suits my tastes: Needs to be Very dynamic and fast, with taut and deep bass, sparkly and well defined highs, I like to feel space between instruments and I dont care about microdetails retrieval but about fun factor. I listen to metal, jazz, world music, and a bit of classical. So hope you wise people from this forum can give me some ideas. I wont tell you my budget to avoid biased suggestions.
