    Re: Nagra HD DAC

    After the DAVE, the TotalDAC & the dCS Rossini, I tried today the ARIES CERAT KASSANDRA, a 60 Kg monster, hand made by a guy in Chypre. I tried it connected to my BHSE, with the DAVE also present. I found it a little more airy (open) and enjoyable than the DAVE, only by a slight margin, but .... NAGRA HD DAC remain still my prefered choice.
    My last testing is Wednesday with the VITUS SCD-025 which is a DAC + CD Player in a single box. It is Supposed to be very good sound, and I will have with me again the DAVE to compare. If I like it a lot, this will simplify my set-up by using 1 box instead if 2 ( CD + DAC), if NOT, then I will have to find the... extra budget to buy the NAGRA ;-)

    The one box digital hub makes so much sense. I think you'll love the liquid sounds of Vitus.

    Sorry but the Lampi killed the Nagra HD. Even the dealer was stunned.

    No, just a religious demoer who listens rather than speculate. There isn't much about being a fan here when even the dealer off another brand is stumped. Just wish people will listen to some classical live concerts and actually compare electronics

    As for your remark, a very easy way to check a fan boy is to see if I have ever recommended their server and GM70 amps strongly. Not yet. Lukas has to work on those
