    new Nagra Tube DAC

    Mine is pretty rock solid. I haven’t noticed any play. I use the remote most of the time but I’ll check again. Do you have the power supply and do you know if you can power non Nagra gear.

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    Thanks for the reply. I’m on the verge of retiring my sonore as well. I just don’t get all the processing power that’s being put into a simple music player. I can see where clocking or timing is of utmost importance but to use two CPU and multiple cores seem overdone.

    A suggestion if I may, can we get a few volunteers to test the various players out on the market and come to a consensus, similar to the very informative thread on lampi pacific tube rolling.

    Anyone connecting Lampizator PACIFIC Dac using RCA connections

I didn’t have a chance for a critical listening session because of the nasty hum when both components were added. So I don’t know how...

    My brother noticed the difference right away in the darker background and greater detail/separation. Furman a legit product without the marketing hype. I suffered with the hum issue longer than necessary as I was looking around for a more “audiophile” power conditioning unit and none could...

    Hello everyone. I hope all is well. I finally got the Fur-man unit, the first being victimized by a FedEx driver who tossed it to the ground as he didn’t see me standing beside his truck. Now that’s FedEx service for you. Despite the all my efforts and your guidance , I was still left not...
