New Monarchy NM24... - Page 5

post #61 of 66
Hi Jimmy, I meant physically smaller. You have a point the NM24 is a very smooth sounding DAC w/ lots of flexibility. Perhaps I should rethink my idea and instead get an Eddie Current amp. But I have to sell something, I have too much stuff and no place to put it (I live in a small apartment).

can someone explain the difference between the Line-Out and the two Analog Outs on this DAC, the chart on their website isn't doing anything for me.

also someone sell me their nm24

The NM24 has two analog outs which correspond to the Tubed DAC and the other pair to the SS DAC. In addition there is a line stage using the Tubed DAC (although via jumpers and a switch you could toggle the two dacs) to feed say a power amp or a pair of power speakers. So in a nutshell it is three things in one box:

1. Tube DAC
3. Line Stage

Bump to a old thread.

I tried a pair of Electro-Harmonix 6922 and I was very surprised. It just sounds accurate and it is very addictive. YMMV as I may just be experiencing some synergy. In any event it is a nice change of pace from the JJs and the Phillips family. They are pretty cheap ($13.00 from the TubeDepot) so they are definitely a no brainer to try.

I've got some Tesla 7DJ8s on the way to test out too.

I still have yet to find a set of tubes that I did not like to some extent in this DAC. This is just a piece of gear I don't think I will ever sell.

The linestage armed with a quiet pair of JAN phillips 6dj8s compares favorably to my Wyred4Sound pre. Now, If it only had a remote and a stepped attenuator instead of the ALPS potentiometer...

Funny you mention stepped attenuators. I have a couple of amps with them and I prefer a regular pot since the jumps of an stepper can be a bit much. Do love my NM24!

With the NM24, are you able to put two sets of different tubes (one pair for the dac and the other for the linestage)? I have a pair of Valvo's and Philips SQ. Any thoughts?
