Been trying DACs for a couple months now. ECP Walnut X.1 has my attention! Makes Gungnir Multibit sound soft and hazy. Holy balls! May 14, 2021 at 8:26 PM

        Ok but not great: Enog 2 Pro

        Pretty damn good: Gungnir Multibit A1 and A2 (both normal and bleached)
        Audio Research DAC 1-20 MkIII,
        Holo Spring 2 level 2, Bifrost 2,

        Might be my new favorite: Walnut

        Old DAC: Yggdrasil A2

      I hate to keep shitting on Clear Mg, but really it isn't good enough for the price tag. Aeolus kills it, at less money.

        Interesting.

        Haven't thought Aeolus characterizes preference. But now starting to think that way as after months of effort I couldn't like it (not meaning it sounds terrible but overall underwhelming relative to what I easily love) with any pads available at the moment. Elimination was an easy decision and I don't miss it to date. Maybe I have to hear it again.

        Out of curiosity which pads do you use?

        Regarding Mg, I just find it kinda bland. I'm still going to listen to it each night I have it, because I want to believe that I just don't "get" it yet and I'm going to have a lightbulb moment.

      I really didn't expect to fall so hard for Utopia, but here we are. Had to roll tubes to deal with some treble. I guess my system sucks?

        I too fell for Utopia, many years ago. But I think the headphone is a little wonky - needs specific system configuration to sound best. Not indicative of a "bad" system.

        It's hard not to fall for the Utopia, it's a headphone everyone should experience for a bit and a good candidate for long term use. I still maintain Stellaris + Utopia is the best one can get without going full bananas.

        @DigMe Listened to the album "Still" by NIN, was surprised by the production. Hadn't listened to them in years. Dude's whiny, sad, needs a hug (but I still like it) and you can hear things coming from all around you on the record. I don't go listen to their normal records when I revisit them, it seems. It's the remix records that suck me in.

      How does the Theta Pro Gen V hold up to, say, the Gungnir Multibit A1? There's one on USAM but the price seems high.

        I remember it sounded impressively thick and bold. From the memory, general tone largely resemble Bifrost 2. Maybe I'd describe it BF2 on a steroid. More organic, punchier, but tad less resolving (the unit heard could be a bad one).

        Nonetheless, I had to laugh at the asking price.. 1750. lmafo. My maximum willingness to pay is around 800 if it's in a really great shape.

        Just my personal feeling, but I'd say contributors should not feel bad about ad-blocking. Maybe even a modest contribution is more than SBAF makes from us merely seeing ads as we browse.

        Personal experience: I browse SBAF almost entirely on PC, not phone. I don't have my ad-blocker turned on for this site. I'm not seeing intrusive ads.

        @jexby Will that number ring in Cancun? Actually I just read that he was guilted into flying back today. The Insurance Council of Texas said this is projected to be the most costly weather event in Texas history, surpassing Hurricane Harvey. So we will definitely be sucking up some more of that sweet, sweet government funding. :|

        I just meant that we (citizens) don't go running to the government first.

        I do recognise that Texas has had a lot of weather-related impacts in the last 10 years, so yeah FEMA has allocated money for those.

        So if I want ultimate clarity and resolution with a nice semi-deep layered stage, it's either a multi-kilobuck tube amp or what else?

        So far I've had good results from feeding BHA-1 or Black Amp with Freya+ tube stage. Just got Lyr3 in today and it's better for VC (to my ears in my system) than Jot2.

        So far nothing beats Af. But I can't afford 2 of those and I like variety (and need amp#2 for the bedroom). So what else will get me where I want to be without spending $2k?
