Hi,Does your experience with your new Abbas match his review?
I’ve posted my impressions on this thread. In a nutshell the Abbas 3.2SE is stunningly good! He has an older generation 2.2SE and is quite impressed. I am not the least bit surprised he found it different compared to the Chord DAC.
I believe if he had a current 2.4 SE he’ll be even further impressed with the steady refinement and incremental improvements over a period of time.
