    If somebody have better system than other peoples. All those upgraded maybe magnifying abilities your system even further more than less system.

    Eh…. For USB, I’d call $5 cheap, $12 a good target, and $25 extravagant, but whatever works for you. You can certainly spend a whole lot more than $100 if you want to.
  3. WNBC
    Yes, it’s all relative. There are cables that cost more than all the headphone equipment I have and a single cable costing $100 can cost more than all cables a single person might have by a large margin. Use whatever works for you.

    If your using a $12 cable on a $2500 DAC then good luck with that notion. I hope your able to try something that compliments the Holo Spring.

    For me prejudice without actual test results is your loos. Open your mind and experienceing for between good to the great.
  6. ZenErik
    implying you need a more expensive cable to complement an expensive DAC? But you can also get a much cheaper and still well made USB cable that complies with USB spec.

    That said, I don’t mind paying a bit more for aesthetics at times.

    So basically your logic is, not expensive enough, so therefore, not good enough. Not really a logic or have anything reasonable in the statement. Just something to move to the side as a silly thought.

    Let me ask everybody I spend more money on music server, cables and footers than the DAC. Am I crazy or stupid ?
    Which my Aurender N100H is more expansive than DAC and my power cable and Intona, two usb cables and Isiacoustis Orea footers together more than DAC itself but now together all that my digital system can compete with much higher price point. For me everything is matter.

    I never had cables go bad on me besides wear over very very long period of time. Cheap to pricier(but, not scammy audiophile prices! I never pay that! I'm not a sucker!).

    I think you’re the perfect target for audio accessory manufacturers, that is all :).

    Thanks for the kind words! and also keeping this thread on track! :D

    on another subject to those who are wondering if they have the XU208 module in their spring. check the Asio driver control panel.
    under the info section there is a Revision number. if it is greater than v20.00
    such as v20.16 or v21.12 are the two firmware for XU208 modules.

    Have the opportunity to try Exogal Comet Plus for a week. After couple hours of listening, it competes well with Holo Spring Level 3. I still think that Spring LVL 3 has a smoother top end, better holographic and more analog sounding. Will update the comparison in a week.
