    Holo Audio May DAC Speculation

    It also sounds great. I wrote a review (in Dutch though): https://www.audioenzo.nl/holo-audio-may-dac-level-2/

    You assumed that right. In addition, it was not a standard SU1 but a Magnafied edition. So another € 200 in modifications and fed by a SOtM sPS500 power supply.

    It has been burned in for around 250 hours. I am familiar with the burn-in phenomenon and can safely say that the differences with the SU1 / sCLK-EX combination are too large to be caught up by further burn-in.

    It was perhaps a bit unfair to listen to the DI20HE without an external clock, while the SU1 had the SOtM clock print built in. But I didn't have an external clock print for the DI20HE so I had to do it with it.

    Review of the DI20HE, in Dutch though so use Google translate: https://www.audioenzo.nl/audio-gd-di20he/

    New Audio-gd R7 (R2R 7) & R8 Flagship Resistor Ladder DACs

    They modified my "old" R2R7 dac also: DAC boards, Acusilicon clocks, new front, Magnafied MOD and also the input shift, so i have now optical on input 4 and HDMI on 5. Input 3 is now available for the external clock input now. And i can use the "standard" 4 spdif version firmwares. So it all can...

    Thanks @DACLadder ! Btw, there is a very handy downloadpage on the Audio-GD site for firmware: http://www.audio-gd.com/Firmwaredownload.htm :) Maybe it was always there, but i didn't know...

    I've tried several different powercords from OCC to silver plated. I have the best results with PC Triple-C copper. Build it myself with Nanotec POWER STRADA #308 and Iego pure copper/rhodium plated mains and IEC plugs (8075 series). All internal connections in the plugs are treated with...

    I heard from Magna that NOS has also been parallel programmed.

    I already tested Parallel version 1, i's more liquid and natural sounding compared to "serial" firmware. Also the distance in sound difference between OS and NOS is bigger in favor for NOS. I found the spaciness in OS more "fake" than before, but that's partly taste i think. Tomorrow i'm gonna...

    I really like V3 also, especialy the SA version! But with the cheap HDMI cable, the ASY firmware is also very nice! Placebo's can be very strong :D

    New Audio-gd R7 (R2R 7) & R8 Flagship Resistor Ladder DACs

    I think the distortion ultimately had nothing to do with the dac and / or the firmware. I removed the heavy Tubulus HDMI cable, with bulky connectors, and installed a cheap, short and lightweight Ruconnected HDMI cable and the sound is now clean. I suspect that the Tubulus has pulled the...

    @Toni-Mang , no problem at all. Music files flac: 16 bits 44.1 kHz on my NAS. Use Roon on a NUC with ROCK. Streamer is a SOtM-sMS200ultra with sPS500 power source. Also a SOtM sNH-10G switch with sCLK-EX on a iFi iPower source. From the SOtM streamer vua Tubulus Argentus USB V2 to a Singxer SU-1...
