    DENAFRIPS Terminator: the King of R2R dac

    I'm very happy with the update, I also agree about the vocals and mid range being better. When I updated the dac I believe it play for over a week before I had time to sit down and listen.

    DENAFRIPS Terminator: the King of R2R dac

    One more thing I’ve noticed today is with the new board the USB input is more sensitive to cables, I’m using a USB cable now that was just okay at best now it sounds great, I had a all silver cable I used the most but not now.

    DENAFRIPS Terminator: the King of R2R dac

    Well I didn't have a whole lot of time but did sit down for an hour or so to listen to the Termy with and without my SU-6 DDC. My SU-6 has stayed powered on the whole time, I just swapped the USB cable from my Lumin U1 to the USB input on the Termy or to the SU-6 with HDMI out to the Termy. I...

    DENAFRIPS Terminator: the King of R2R dac

    I still like NOS but on some music it's OS, neither one is wrong, same for the filters both are different and both are very good. Both filters work in NOS, one thing I'll change is the "Slow" filter both X1 and X8 light up and on "Sharp" filter only the X8 light is on. Hope it's not confusing...

    DENAFRIPS Terminator: the King of R2R dac

    Got the new board in Friday, running the USB input till this weekend and I will put my singxer su-6 back in using I2s to Termy and see how it sounds. Using the Sharp/Slow filters is a very nice upgrade. But you have to press the" Mute" button then press the "Mode" button to select filters, I...

    Saleh, nice review and system, can't wait for all of us to get the new boards. Is it possible to use Chord's Mscaler dual BNC out into Termy's (new board) dual AES/EBU (with adapter)? https://www.fullcompass.com/prod/011887-neutrik-na2mbnc-xlrm-to-bnc-adapter

    Yeah, I would hold off too. The new board might change everything.

    Ordered, don't know how long it will take. I'm just happy it can be upgraded by me.

    Singxer SU-6

    No power switch, just plug in the barrel tip in the back and it powers up the super caps.

    Singxer SU-6

    I don't think I've ever had any audio gear that would stay on 2+mins after unplugging the power. I only have 150hrs on mine and it's sounding great.

    I'm using a Singxer su-6 with my termy too, it's the best sounding DDC that I've tried. Very happy with it.

    Singxer SU-6

    Would it be safe to say a couple hundred hours of break-in before it settles in.

    DENAFRIPS Terminator: the King of R2R dac

    Looks like a very nice transport, I would start with a HQ hdmi (I2s) cable going to the Termy.

    This is a post form Alvin at Vinshine Audio from another audio forum, it was posted in a Denafrips dac thread. sounds very interesting. "Hello guys, DENAFRIPS engineers are full-force testing the new DSP as I type. We ask for extra time to ensure the best-stability and best-sonic DSP update to...

    Congrats, nice setup. It was over 500+ (close to 800) for me I know some might think that's a little crazy but that's what my ears told me.

    Gustard U16 - the first USB Interface featuring ESS USB chip

    My source is LUMIN U1 > Gustard U16 > Terminator, DSD and 96khz down plays fine and sounds good. I set the Lumin to play anything above 96khz to down sample to 96khz and everything is fine but it’s just a band-aid. My modded Singxer SU1 never had a issue but I like the sound of the U16, at some...

    Gustard X22 DAC

    The X22 was great especially when using the I2s input (modded singxer SU-1), I since have moved on to a ladder dac.

    Gustard U16 - the first USB Interface featuring ESS USB chip

    Good to know about the Terminator, on the U16 did you try the I2s default setting (gustard) going into the Terminator.
