I find more myself more impressed with the musical enjoyment and immersion of the DAC as time goes on.

Usually the opposite happens when you've gotten over the honeymoon period of a new DAC.

I agree, one get used to new equipment after a certain period of time.
I will give the DAC-21 a listen through the cinch-out first and will describe my impressions during the upcoming w/e. I am really looking forward to it.

Best Regards,
Hi-Head

I don't think the HPA and DAC 21 duo can be beat at it's price.

The DAC-21 is worth the full retail price. In actuality, it was priced too low by Bakoon.

As the reviewer Paul Rigby would say, the music is there. It's always been there waiting to be discovered.

The HPA and DAC-21 remove all of that noise, so you can hear the music.

If they were components running off AC, you'd have to spend tens of thousands of dollars to get rid of that noise.

Hi there,

I purchased a while back the bakoon HPA-21 amplifier with Mrspeakers Ether Flow C headphones from jean-luc.
And they sound very good together on current mode.

I want to although have opened cans.
I'm trying to see if the HPA-21 on current mode is sufficient enough to drive the JPS LAB 1266 Abyss Phi.
Current mode seems to be less powerful than voltage mode.

What do you think ?

Thanks.
