    CHORD ELECTRONICS DAVE

    The DC4 does not change the sound of the Dave. I have a very revealing system. I am not using Dave with headphones, but with speakers. To me, the DC4 just unleashed the Dave. I would describe it as an amplification of everything the Dave does well. My journey with the DC4 started because I was...

    CHORD ELECTRONICS DAVE

    I am not a partner nor a follower. Never met Sean in person and no affiliation whatsoever. I think the reason there is lots of buzz around the DC4 is that it is that good. I understand it is expensive, but a lot in audio is expensive. If you can afford it, though, you won't be disappointed.

    I like the Innuos Statement with Dave and DC4 as they have similar power supplies made by Sean. I haven't heard other power supplies and I do think the DC4 is expensive. But man oh man is it unbelievable.

    I am not so great with subtle changes either, but the DC4 blew me away. As big a change as switching amps.

    The effects of the DC4 are NOT subtle at all! They are massive, imho.

    Cayin HA-300 Flagship Tube Headphone Amplifier

    for all the issues of the mk1, Cayin should offer some kind of solid trade in upgrade option, methinks.

    Nice. I would love to have REL, but not enough space atm… my speakers are full range, but I still think subs will make a big difference, judging by systems I have heard tat hv some installed.

    I go the middle route too. I love being able to switch so easily with the Innuos 2.0 app from Innuos player to Roon + Squeeze. Takes only a few seconds. Allows search and explore in Roon, then critical playback in Innuos. Really is the best of both worlds! I couldn’t imagine life without Roon no...

    I have an Everest 8000. It is epic. Really amazing! Highly recommended. If you do get one, though, the Sigma or omega XC cable is really a must. IMO they should include the Sigma model....

    I do hv a Statement. It also is great. happy with it. And properly applied, the time & energy you spend trolling could make you a rich man!

    Cayin HA-300 Flagship Tube Headphone Amplifier

    Probably fuse. The one inside= high voltage. that is what happened to me. These amps have serious issues. It seems like one of three people who has one has had repair issues. I would not upgrade, nor recommend Cayin to anyone. My HA 300 sounds great but I hv had more issues with it than any...

    I’ll add my name to the +30% list! The second DC4 for Mscaler is more like 5%

    Second biggest cable upgrade for me was Wave Storm tied with omega USB. These cables aren’t subtle at all. Omega is epic! Replaced my FTA Callisto, which I’m selling btw. It stood me well for a year, but omega blows it away… Recently added the Network Acoustics AG box which was also a nice SQ bump!

    CHORD ELECTRONICS DAVE

    I would highly recommend getting off that train. I was on the same train. The biggest cable difference I ever noticed was power cable for Dave. I then upgraded twice before realizing that if a cable was making this much of a difference, a power supply would be even greater and just ordered a...
  17. Final Touch Audio Callisto USB

    Like new Callisto cable. It is a great cable. I upgraded recently. Price includes FedEx shipping worldwide for no extra charge!

    I have a Finaltouch Audio USB for sale if any of you are interested. It is great for the Dave. I used it up until I upgraded some time back. Mint condition and with felt bag. PM me if interested.

    If using xlr directly from Dave to amp could the rca go to a subwoofer(s) simultaneously?

    Cayin HA-300 Flagship Tube Headphone Amplifier

    What brand is the V281? I "upgraded" to the Cayin because it sounds great with Focal and I hv Utopias amongst other cans. And that great synergy remains, but I have been disappointed with Cayin. The list is long: Their "official" dealers here dont have shops; they are just kids with online...

    Cayin HA-300 Flagship Tube Headphone Amplifier

    Thanks. Man oh man, it is strange because the stock tubes work just fine, so the amp is working just not with those tubes. Makes me scared to get other ones. And I have to say Cayin isn't much help either... Unbelievably, EML was far more helpful and it wasn't even their product. They were kind...

    Have u listened to a Topping? Or done A/B with a Dave? Measurements don’t mean much. We don’t eat chemical goop based on some lab report of what is nutritional. You cannot measure something when the quality itself in the end is mostly subjective. You can’t do crowd based statistical research...
