Hi Federico, in Italy we have a regular importer of Yulong products.
I'm looking for a DA8 to compare with my Mytek.
Yes, I know.
Italian importer is www.palmtop.it
Strangely Yulong answers to Matteo's request (to receive a demo unit to test) while palmtop no.
Where do you live?
Matteo is from Brescia, you could send him a message http://www.stereo-head.it/2013/04/contatti/ or contact him on gazeboaudifilo or tforum (Turo91).
From a previous listening to Mytek I could say that they sound quite different: mytek has a very open sound while da8 is more dark.
But the most important thing is to listen to them with your ears.
Hi Happy Camper, I'm using a Chord Silver Plus that I found with more body and bass impact than standard generic usb.
You can never expect any less from the likes of me!
Planning on trying to either make some big consolidation moves or maybe just downsize and lay low for a bit. Life priorities really changing for me these days for better or worse.
I contend that Hilo is neck and neck with PWDmk2 - just different sounds. I also loved the ability to DDC when I didn't have any other method. The Hilo will be missed and I don't even have any clear "upgrade" path at the moment.
About selling my Hilo, I wish I could say I was happy with the way the transaction is turning out but...
Yes, there are 1 and 0... but it's important when the 1 and 0 arrive, so different usb cable sound different.
Even if I think it's a nonsense to spend much money in cables.
When I got my first transport and DAC, around 1990, the dealer demonstrated a $175 silver digital cable for me -- a princely sum to me at the time. To my dismay, the sound was markedly better than with a generic video cable. The engineer in me was dismayed, as was the miser in me.
