Abhishek has never met a DAC he liked :)
I liked the C2, but yeah you are right
Have you heard the NOS sound before?
Koth I still am using your adcom :)
Have also auditioned Holo spring (different set of issues but not outright bad)
Its dacs like these (holo/jade) that make even a Gungnir Multibit A2 sound lot better
I found the same thing with the Onyx using USB. Use SPDIF - it’s much, much better.
@Koth Ganesh : LOL, never met anyone harder to please!
@gurubhai and who's to blame for that :)
OTOH, it's entirely possible usb is the bottleneck here. Given how dramatically a good spdif source can elevate capable dacs, I believe jade may have more to offer. Yet, jade's 'loudness on' kinda sound is probably inherent
@gurubhai: All this fuss for 50s-60s Bollywood music :).
