Hey rick how is your fire phoenix. I figure they should be nice n burned in by now no? If your hearing what I hear out of my FP. You should be loving the sound out of that DAC. I think they need about a weeks worth of use for everything to sort out. But mines sounds amazing even better than when I first started using it actually.
Speaking of hardware. I have not gotten any of the cheapo DACs I posted earlier. I will post some impressions of them here as soon as I get them. I did end up getting a new tube to try out with my Bravo amp and my AUNE T1 when I get that.. I have been doing a lot. And I mean a lot of reading online about dac/amps..
On a very interesting note. The more and more I read through specs and chips and how they all mix together for the end sound. It seems the Chinese are taking some high end chips and throwing them in different configurations to come out some very interesting products. The Fire Phoenix for example is just one of them..How does this affect you guys? Well for the most part the sound that is coming out of my Fire Phoenix for example. There is no way I could have had this type of sound out of a sub $100 DAC even a year or two ago. No possible way. This is good news for all of us that are fans of better sound..It seems I am on yet another mission. The best possible sound for the bucks. To be continued.
