How you install the digital cable ? I am not sure at all ...

In the small manual:

Apply the labeled end of the cable to your source output. The flow of electricity should follow the direction of the writing of the label.


SOURCE -> ( DAVID 2.0 Label) -> DAC

or

DAC -> ( DAVID 2.0 LABEL) -> SOURCE


I guess it's the first (source - DAVID 2 - DAC right ) ?

Music Source--> Cable--> Dac

If that doesn't work then it's broken and you should just send it to me, ha.

I ATM test my David 2.0 digital cable.

I was using COAX beldel 1694A as digital cable.

I am using my PC as source (X-Meridian 7.1 soundcard) to my DAC (citypulse da7.2x + txco + lm4562). I have better as dac, but this one is very close to my PC and it's convenient to do somes cables swap.

My belden was my only coax working ok. All my other coax was prone to jitter and pop ... in sound.


The VD make me jump ... WOW!

First is the highs ... more speed, more open and more crisps.
More dynamic .. more tap foot.
The bass are stronger and have more punch.
Soundstage expand .. have more depth too.
I have a strange impression of "black background" ... it's difficult to describe ... probably in few more swaps I will be able to tell what is different.

It's pretty impressive!


I can't wait to read IPOD's impression with his Master LE ... woot!

I am very glad to have this new digital cable.
I was not expecting hear any difference.

All my friend telling me .. if impedence is ok, bits will be ok the other side ...

It's seem, it's not the thruth ...

Not all your friends Pompon. Me too I leave theorists at their books. Only my ears telling the truth.

I'm waiting the arrival of my Virtual Dynamics power cable very soon...

Congrats pompon. I'm glad you are able to hear a difference. All cables will and DO make a difference. We all start out as skeptics and most of us end up as believers.

I'm very surprised that the Virtual Dynamics coax cables are directional. I've never seen that before. But I also saw on Audiogon yesterday a digital cable that plus into a power supply, so I guess there are crazy contraptions everywhere.

My cable should arrive on Tuesday or Wednesday. I will certainly post my impressions; you can be sure of that.

Our cables are directional due to magnet placement and their polarities.

Just so ya know

Well, my Master LE 2.0 RCA arrived today, and boy is it ever big! I'm at work so I haven't had a chance to test it yet, but I will sometime this evening. I can tell just by looking at it that I will have to move my amp lower to my computer, probably on top of it. As it is right now there is no way it will reach (99% sure). But I'm sure the audio quality will be worth it. Thanks again, VD! I can't wait to try it out.

Well thank god for my breakaway cable on my soundcard, or else the Master LE @ 1 meter wouldn't reach.

I've been listening to it for an hour, and I can't even begin to give a complete review yet because if I did, it would be an endless mish-mash of "OMG! This cable is so amazing!", so I'll refrain at this point.

What I will say is that if you plan on playing your audio at 44.1 kHz, prepare to be extremely disappointed.... not with the cable, but how unmusical and lifeless your music souds. This cable is made for extremely high quality sources, and most of those typically upsample. I have been upsampling my audio at 88.2 for awhile now (which I find is better for redbook than upsampling to 96. Even steps are easier for a resampler's algorithm to accurately interpret).

The detail that this cable reveals is not only stunning but mind blowing. Words that were sung by the vocalist and were unintelligible before are clear and concise now. But the resolution and clarity that you get from the bass frequencies are, without a doubt, the best feature of this cable -- not to mention the most impressive I've ever heard. The DAC in the Opera most definitely surpasses the quality of the Juli@ now.

And it makes me laugh when people say the Denon AH-D5000 have bloated bass. They are some of the most transparent dynamic headphones on the market, and this realization is further echoed after throwing a Master LE 2.0 digital RCA into your system.

That's all I can say for now. I'm enjoying listening to my music too much to give it any more of a review. I want to spend a lot more time with it. And I can tell you that this cable will not leave my system unless it is replaced with a Revelation or Genesis. Virtual Dynamics' cables may not be cheap, but they are damn good and I'm extremely fortunate to have won this piece.

I'm still in sheer amazement with this digital cable. It's 1 meter of magic. VD created a work of genius. The detail and resolution this cable provide are mesmerizing. I've never heard so much bass seperation and clarity in my life through headphones. Zero bloat. Pitch black background. Live soundstaging. Perfect blend of left/right width and center image depth. This is now my gold reference of digital cables which all others will be measured to.

I'm not sure what to do with my Cobalt digital cable now.

Sell and use towards a good linear transport with good power supply.

I'll start looking and asking around for something in your price range. But I still think for the money; the Slim Transporter is a very decent transport. I personally couldn't support it's analog outs, but when it comes to its comes to it's digitals..... im happy

Oya, and PJ ant kidding, the LE digital's ridiculous.
