Hello people, I have a small dilemma, tell me what you think. I'm really interested in Freya but wonder if it'll be an upgrade to the sound - in my set up. I have a really minimal setup - A RaspberryPi driving a Yggy, that connects (via attenuators) to an ATI 6002 power amp that then drives a pair of ML Electro motions. I also have a REL s/3 sub that's being fed from another output o the Yggy. I control the volume from the Raspberry Pi - running Jriver. It sounds very good and I'm quite happy. A while ago I had a home demo of the Lyr 2 (connected to HD 700 HP) and I was really impressed - it was the first time I heard decent (non distortion) tune sound and it was lots of fun. However I still prefer my 2 channel system and so when Freya was announced I was thrilled. I love the idea of switching between passive, to tube. Not sure how useful the JFET stage will be - I have very short balanced cables and I understand it's very similar to the stage in the Yggy. However, while Freya on its own isn't very expensive, I'll need another power cable (the Yggy and ATI have 3 Nordost blue heaven cables) and another pair of balanced ICs, I'll also need another shelf... For a while now I believe that in Hifi 'less is more' and 'the best pre-amp is no preamp' - and adding the Freya (both in tubes and passive mode) goes against it. I wonder if the passive mode freya will sound better or worst than my Attenuators? I have these balanced -30db and they sound quite transparent to me. Furthermore, if I add a pre-amp (and use it to control the volume) than I'll have to run my sub from it - and i wonder if using tubes on a sub is a good idea - they often add noticeable distortion at the bass... What do you guys think? Thank you!
