Peter, I had the SGM EVO and Aqua Formula non xHD dac. The sound was beautiful but there was something lacking. The bass wasn’t deep. The dynamics wasn’t what I have today.Interesting. From what to what? Yeah
And nothing so natural like the APL streamer and dac that replaced the server and the Aqua.
Finally got to know what my speakers are able to do, with it’s too 9” woofers.
