Holo Spring dac on bottom and "Oblivion" hybrid amp on top (from "modern amp build" thread, a different new approach to hybrid design ).

How do you like the Loxjie? Thinking about trying it out.. pretty inexpensive.

The Loxjie is a no brainer purchase for how much it cost. It actually sounds quite good through the balance out. I've had one for a month or so now. Sold the MCTH after I got the p20.

So I'm assuming it sounds better than the CTH?

I really like it with the Focals. (Balanced in and out) Not as detailed as the Arcam but it adds warmth that I like over the rHead.

It's different sounding than the CTH. I also use it on both my Focals and really adds "warmth" to the sound. Increases the low end and mellows out the rest of the sound. The CTH seemed to be more about opening up soundstage but leaner sounding to me.

Very nice. I was just a few minutes ago looking at the D50. Nice to see it in this context.

What is the device on top, some type of media streamer?

That device on top is a Bluesound Node 2i network streamer. I use it for Tidal HiFi streaming. I'll be doing some careful listening over the next few days to see if the linear power supply makes a a difference, compared to an iPad charger.

Wowee, The RAAL is out now it is?

Not so much "out" as "I have a prototype on hand" but yes, shipping for the first batch is going to start in January. I have a production version on order and Danny sent me his unit to get me started on a review.

I've got some impressions over on the Raal thread. Happy to answer any questions about these as well, since I've got the only pair currently in the wild.
