Really happy for you Charles. Great to hear, and if I get the chance to buy a new DAC, it will surely be an Abbas. So nice to have a trusted pair of ears give a review like this.Hi,
Not sure if you are still following this thread or not. How has your 3.2 Signature come along with further burn-in/playing time?
I reached the 100 hour juncture yesterday evening. The 3.2SE continues to evolve and improve. As I reported that at 20 hours it was sounding “very “ good. Its moved above and beyond.
I will see/hear what happens between now and 200 hours (This much time needed per Abbas for the Blackgate capacitors to fully sound their best). In my humble opinion this DAC provides sublime sound quality.
I am sure that some of the improving sound can be attributed to the tubes, cables, internal wiring, resistors etc. burning in as well. But apparently the main factor is the capacitors gradually forming.
