Was running late and had to get out of the house for work, but managed to put a quick setup on the bench (dining room..lol) to start it on its paces before I left. DVD player--> coax--> NFB-3--> K.I.C.A.S. (non-caliente)--> PRO550s. Just wanted to crank her up and check that everything was in working order and start burn-in. Next couple of days I'll connect the other inputs and ACSS with C-2, other phones and amps.
Had to put the phones on for a minute before I left for a quick listen- Very, very early of course for any impressions, but the first words that popped into my head were "full-bodied" & "clarity". The Dual Wolfson WM8741s are definitely kicking...lol
In all honesty, I was on the fence about the purchase because of owning the DAC-19DF already and the possible similarities between the two. So, basically my decision-making process was- 1) Wanted 24/96 from usb since my collection has grown quite a bit... 2) If I decide to put either dac downstairs in my speaker rig, I could still use the ACSS connection with C-2 upstairs... 3) Wanted to give the WM8741s a go...4) Limited run on the NFB-3.
A few emails to Kingwa and the $ was sent. You gotta love this guy- he never tries to get you to buy more expensive gear. You ask about a product and he answers about that product.....Cheers to you sir....Now where is my Digital Interface?...lol
For about 360.00 shipped to your door, IMO it is a steal with the quality of his products.....
Some very quick and crappy pics...
