    T+A HiFi - DAC 200 - Official Discussion Thread

    People seem to love the Bezier 2 filter on the DAC200. Maybe try that one first. Other than the filter setting, there’s not much to change. You can try if the 60khz analog filter setting has any effect.

    T+A HiFi - DAC 200 - Official Discussion Thread

    Sounds like you would love what DSD oversampling has to offer. Unfortunately it’s not plug’n’play. I changed from R2R DAC (Holo Spring 3) to DAC200.

    Holo Audio Bliss

    Is anyone using Dan Clark E3's with the Bliss? How's the synergy?

    Holo Audio Bliss

    I’m sure there’s a small difference in benefit of Serene, but I’m just trying to get a grasp of how big this difference is. If there’s someone who has made the switch from Serene to Bliss and could give some insight. I won’t be having both of them, that just doesn’t make sense in my case. No...

    Dan Clark Audio E3 Review: Interview, Measurements, Impressions

    You might get sound out of your E3’s with the BTR5, but even the desktop amp FiiO K7 with 2W output doesn’t get the best out of these headphones, not even close. E3 scales very high with a powerful amplification.

    Holo Audio Bliss

    I’ve bought Serene for my speaker setup also. Now I’m not sure if I need it anymore since DAC200 plays so great directly connectef to my ATC’s. Serene brings its own flavour though and it’s nice to have different options. I only need one XLR output so Bliss would be enough for connections. Any...

    Yes I’ve read the review. I remember him saying it was the other way around, that Serene is slightly better as preamp.

    Holo Audio Bliss

    I used the search function and tried to find an answer to the question asked many times in this thread. Is Bliss as good as Serene, used as preamp in 2ch speaker setup? There were a few vague responses telling that they should be almost the same but has anyone actually compared these two side by...

    T+A HiFi - DAC 200 - Official Discussion Thread

    You need the custom update cable from T+A or alternatively you can make the update cable yourself if you know what you’re doing. I got the cable through the dealer, for loan.

    T+A HiFi - DAC 200 - Official Discussion Thread

    I installed the latest firmware few days ago. Some nice new features available but nothing huge. I like it that the display now shows volume with big numbers when you switch it from the remote. Input-specific settings and possibility to rename the inputs are nice-to-have features. Also here's a...

    Dan Clark Audio E3 Review: Interview, Measurements, Impressions

    This could be me, having auditoned E3 extensively (~two weeks) at home and at the dealer and having auditioned Liric II’s at the dealer. I still own Aeon 2 Noire’s but E3’s are on the shopping list. Simply said, E3’s have a high vow-factor and they do things I’ve never heard headphones doing...

    Dan Clark Audio E3 Review: Interview, Measurements, Impressions

    Yeah I might sound overly negative about Liric 2. It’s not a bad headphone, definitely not. Fun to listen to and it’s slightly more comfortable and portable than E3. E3 feels heavier and little bit ”loose” on the head. The feel of Liric 2 is of very high quality. But still the overall sound...

    Dan Clark Audio E3 Review: Interview, Measurements, Impressions

    The E3’s expansive staging, something I’ve never heard from closed back headphone before, is probably the main reason which made the Liric 2 sound more ordinary. Everything played more in-your-head. It’s the same with A2 Noire’s when you compare them against E3. Everything is packed tighter in...

    Dan Clark Audio E3 Review: Interview, Measurements, Impressions

    I quickly auditioned the Liric II at the dealer today and I was somewhat disappointed. I must say that it sounded very ordinary compared to E3, which immediately striked me as something very special. Driven with Violectric V380, E3 sounds bigger, deeper and wider with stronger and more powerful...

    Yeah it might be normal with it and it’s not a big deal. Just something I was wondering.

    Holo Audio Red Streamer

    My Red is now one year old. I've noticed that the green power indicator led has gotten very dim during this period. When the unit was new, the green led was already dimmer than my Holo Spring 3 and Holo Serene green leds. Now it's gotten so dim that I can barely see it from the listening spot...

    HQPlayer Impressions and Settings Rolling Thread

    After I wrote the message, I thought that this might be the case. I usually play one album at time and yes, volume levels differ betweem albums, but I've never had problems with it. I simply use the volume control of the preamp/headphone amp. I mostly play local files but also stream with Qobuz.

    HQPlayer Impressions and Settings Rolling Thread

    Why do volume leveling in Roon? It's unnecessary and not recommended in combination with HQP. You'll want to feed bitperfect signal to HQP and you can adjust volume level in HQP.

    Singxer SA-1 / Balanced Amplifier Fully Discrete Class A - beyond THX 888 ?!

    Sorry if it’s mentioned already, but how does the new SA-1 V2 compare to the original SA-1?

    Dan Clark Audio E3 Review: Interview, Measurements, Impressions

    Someone wrote earlier in the thread that Aeon Noire's would have more bass than E3. This is simply not the case, not even close. E3 hits lower and harder with way more punch than Noire's. E3 is clearly more dynamic and open sounding out of the two. I own Noire's and currently have E3 at home for...

    Holo Audio Red Streamer

    HDMi cable was Chord C-View and USB cable was much more expensive Intona Premium (highly recommended USB-cable).

    Holo Audio Red Streamer

    I use USB, it was better than i2s when I did some comparison (Red -> Spring 3). Of course, different USB and HDMi cables were used and cable matters also.

    Actually all current Holo DACs fit the bill, even the recently released Cyan2, which is their cheapest model.

    HQPlayer Impressions and Settings Rolling Thread

    Sinc-MG/MGa and Sinc-M sound different from each other. I prefer Sinc-M and it has been my choice for DSD256 upsampling (along with ASDM7EC-light) for some time now.
