Prepare yourself for a long burn-in period of about 450 hours.
AURALiC Vega - Page 2
I've only had 1-2 hours with it, and only with my headphone rig, no speakers. Initial impressions are very favorable. It's easily equals the Hilo and betters it in a few ways. Bass quality seems to be the first thing I noticed. Punchier, tighter, and a bit deeper. Overall dynamics seem a little better. Quick and very musical seems like a good description. Others have said that it makes redbook (16/44) seem better and my early impressions mirror this. At this point all listening has been using the USB input. Mac Mini>WyWires USB>Vega DAC.
The burn in continues.......
Nice Andrew!! Good to see another one being enjoyed in CA.
I hear you, this DAC conveys so much information that it's an assault on your senses in a very good way. Incredibly detailed, yet still musical, and of course the great bass.......
Wow, tried some hi-rez material with Exact clock last night, my jaw dropped to the floor! Which filter do you use, default (4)?
I haven't even tried any of the other filter options, I'm still on the default 4. Sounds great though.
Will try to play some DSD this weekend.
