Jupiter 0.1uF caps installed in Af tonight. They sound great, I look forward to burning them in. Nov 13, 2019 at 8:40 PM

      EC S7 and a mix of tubes plays very nicely with the Focal Clear. The EC soundstage is real. No need for any DSP at all.

        @Vansen more of a reference to my midfi amps (Lyr 3 and MCTH) being referred to as Corollas. Only meant obliquely to reference @Luckbad mean custom title. It was not meant as a swipe at him, I apologize if it came off that way. I am proudly mid-fi and the S7 is hopefully the king of the heap.

        I'm going to try to remain Mid-Fi this time around. One thing I've learned: Never play leapfrog with a unicorn.

        I dusted it back off this morning after a few days with the TS. My initial impressions remain. It seems to add a bit of top-end splash and shimmer, which suit the AFO very well.

        I may prefer the TS with the 650s, but I haven't spent much time with them since they live primarily at work.

        The used market on the Clears is reasonable. They are built like a tank.
        I barely found one at my local dealer to demo. Supply is short, demand is high. Prices will stay up unfortunately.

        After hearing the loaner I figured it will not be coming down soon. I anticipate a wait, then I’ll look at the used market after the FOM folks are ready to move on to something else. Glad you are enjoying your new gear!

        Oh I see, well either way, life's too damn short; plus there's so much wisdom, knowledge & experience, left to share & gain, between us all.
        I do believe that most of us (on SBAF at least) don't hold any ulterior motives nor bad intentions; we're all on this journey together, so to speak (granted that some <fine> folks, might/do have somewhat raised expectations, egos & biases) but even if so, still: No harm no foul?

      Got Schiit Loki in and EQ is a fun way to tweak LCD-2C and HD800 for both analog and digital sources. Going to hold off ADI-2 DAC for now.

      Is there any reason for a computer audio noob to get RME ADI-2 Pro over ADI-2 DAC?

        GanGreinke
        In addition to the AD stage, the ADI-2 Pro might be better when using the headphone output in balanced mode (more power + additional DAC chip), but we'll have to wait for some direct comparisons to see what the difference is.

        So if using only ADI-2 pro as DAC, the balanced out is the only way to do PRT, right?

      4. Garns

        No, you can do PRT with any amp so long as you have a balanced connector on the headphone. It's just that if the amp has an unbalanced 1/4" output you start with a 1/4" -> 4 pin XLR adapter before proceeding as usual for the PRT. I do this with the Valhalla 2.

        You are correct @Vtory. I'm exploring options currently and probably will end up just buying a new Yggdrasil and selling Gungnir Multibit here or elsewhere. I figured it is worth a try to do a trade here.

        Yeah. I was surprised that Amazon had it listed and Discogs did not. You might just have to suck it up and pay the asking price. The last few stupid priced CDs I bought were a case of pay up or miss out -potentially- forever. So, what's it worth to you?
