    Did you spend way way more on cables than hardware components and headphones from your signature?

    Chill dawg, relax and take in your new gear, as it only gets better with time, and you're still in shock mode, which lasts a good few months.

    Seriously, 320kbps Radio 2 has never sounded so good.

    Very good......:sweat:

    Can it get better with time and how so??

    Someone spent 3 times more or so on cables than gear/headphones. That's crazy.

    When new you're just getting used to how it sounds etc, once used to it, you expect it to always sound like it does, but even though, every now and then a certain song will play that will remind you just how good you have it.

    For me it's come on eileen by dexys midnight runners.

    Albums with you can test if your system is as articulate as you think. With hard to hear lyrics whispering singing thruought the albums. Do you hear every word.on these albums? TT2 should easily fix this?

    Oh, Roger Waters Pro's and Con's of Hitchhiking, the entire album is supposed to be a dream state like story/poem and there is a crazy load of whispering in it, and it's hearable for me, slightly easier with the aeon flow closed than the hd800s.

    Clapton plays the guitar on this album and it's like you can hear his fingerprints when he plucks dem strings.

    That is a hell of a statement considering the price of the TT2, I have to say...

    You took it too far MK, me saying their name was bad enough, but you posted their album cover :|

    So used HMS for some time with Hugo 2 before Hugo 2 was replaced with tt2. I have experienced that the more transparent is dac , more extended it is on both extremes. Vocals with tt2 and HMS combo are ironed out to remove even the last bit of harshness.

    Have you heard the competition and compared for yourself?, otherwise i wouldent asume that chord dacs are superior before i have heard similar dacs or streamers in same price range. I would only trust my ears. But yeah its probebly not easy to find a shop that lets you compare many different dacs/streamers at home.

    This dac seems to have some uppsampling teqnique of there own. I wonder if its comparable to what the mscsler does?

    Its not about the money. For me its about how transparent your HP and HP amp is to let you hear the advatange of the better cable and i do hear it, so much more nuances and details in the music now compared to cheaper cables. I think my system is good enough for it to be worth it. Of course a Niimbus us4+ or Benchmark HPA 4 or better dac/steamer would probebly scale those cables even more. But i am happy with my system for now and have took it so far as i can or am willing, (almost), only ethernet cabels left which i read improves sound also but i think i go from generic ones to not to expensive cat8 supra,one 1m to router and one 5m to streamer ). You can read the user reviews saying it improves sound for some.


    Whatever uppgrades i make in the future these cabels will serve me also.

    Also i could say spending 5k on Mscaler seems crazy. I can think of tradeing my hugo2 for money in between for a TT2 though but would never buy an Mscaler but thats just me. I hope next generation have them built in.

    He is just one person who is in love with Chord stuff for whatever reason. Here are some random facts.

    1. PS Audio know what they are doing.

    2. Chord makes good dacs and if you are happy with the price, build and ergonomics they are a great choice.

    3. Many other companies make good dacs.

    4. Buy what works for you.

    Don't mind what one person in a forum says.

    I've compared a vast number of top tier dacs over the years and for me at least chord is the most natural sounding of them all without doubt. Just as i respect the opinions of others i expect others to respect my opinions too and not criticise me for what i believe to be true.
