Anedio D2 DAC release - Page 62

post #916 of 1357

I'm on the list for the Legato II. Seems like the best VFM converter, works w/Linux (using a SBT w/EDO) and I only listen to regular redbook stuff so fits the bill. I'd think about an AP2 + PP if I saw one second hand for a decent price though.

Any idea on when the new Legato will be ready?
post #918 of 1357

No, unfortunately. Ready when it's ready sort of thing.

The first Legato II (S/N: 1) is more or less finished and I'm waiting for its arrival.  I hope to see it sometimes this month.

A variation of my D2/U2 mod.  This one has the clocks powered by the Belleson super regulators.  The rest is the same as my U2 converter mod I did earlier.  With the LC inlet filter, I think the the super regulators may not be necessary.  Will find out more if and when I get the other person's D2 modded with ultra low noise IC regulators.

Anyone using a Aqvox or Vaunix with their Anedio?
post #922 of 1357

Anyone seen this before?

I thought the WASAPI component wasn't in development anymore since it seemed stuck at version 2.1. Supposedly version 3 (bèta) has some optimizations which may especially be useful with USB audio devices. Plus it adds the event style mode for WASAPI in foobar2000. Give it a try.

Just wanted to say that everyone was right about the D2, it is a really great dac. It is also great to read about all the other stuff related to this hobby, I've learned a lot from this one thread, thanks for sharing.

Just heard back from Viper: My modded D2 is undergoing final burn-in (before shipping).

Thanks for the work Viper (I'm looking forward to the music).

I got a slightly different mod with my external U2 and already got it back. I am just listening for now biggrin.gif

Hi friends...

 

I want to know how much is the Viper's Anedio D2 Mod? I am very interested... And of course your experience between the original Anedio D2 vs Viper's D2 Mod

 

Thanks

Do tell smily_headphones1.gif... What did you get done on your U2.
(Got any pictures?)

The only difference is that his is not using super regulator.  The rest is the same.

 

EDIT:

Actually, you got one film cap in the reclocker regulator's output stage.  His is using the stock ceramic cap.

So my D2 came back 3 days ago, and it has not dissapointed.

Without getting into a lot of hype & mumble jumble, these are my key observations so far:

- more detail & separation of instruments, without being analytical

- a bit more relaxed presentation, whitout lossing out on transient and dynamics

 

But honestly, those are not 'night & day' differences, and rather more on the subtle side (perhaps that may change with more burn-in?). And overall I'm drawn more into the music (i.e., the DAC keeps me on the couch for longer listening sessions, and it's more enjoyable)... Then, on the 'practical' side, one must consider cost (especially shipping back-&-forth); so, at the end of the day, perhaps adding a "Legato II" may be a wiser inve$tment?

 

Anyway, there's it is, for what it's worth. Thanks Viper, nice job!

Sounds good! 

 

Unrelated, but I just got the Auraliti PK90 set up yesterday. I'm powering it with the Nuforce LPS-1 power supply. I connected to the D2 and got..... nothing. No signal. Switched to my Violectric V800, and there is was clear as day. Interesting. Right off the bat it sounds better than regular USB from a laptop, but obviously I can't speak definitively on that yet.

 

I had zero time to troubleshoot the setup, so I maybe just screwed something up. That happens a lot tongue_smile.gif. But I'm hoping it will work. I had assumed it would because other XMOS devices (specifically the SOtM dX-USB HD) are confirmed to work.
