Hi, I would expect the RCA's to sound a little better, I added the transformers (at the input) on my HD Pre and thought that was better...but I had a balanced source going to a unbalanced input before the input transformers were added. In your example, without the transformers, it's unbalanced source...Over time I've found you just have to try it. balanced doesn't always equal better...The output transformer on xlr was an expensive extra option. So I refrained
Hello Sniper17,Just received my Tube DAC. I had the HD DAC, did the upgrade. My first impression was much more dynamic range. Playing CD's via my Olasonic CDT, it was very obvious. Much more bloom and HUGE soundstage! I need advice on procuring a more sophisticated CDT. NuPrime makes one for $800 or $1800. Appreciate any thoughts!
IMHO your Nagra Classic Tube DAC deserves a transport better than the Nuprime!
Pls consider the Aqua Audio La Diva or the Pro-Ject CD Box RS2 T :
