    Re: Nagra HD DAC

    Ked, did the Nagra HD use XLR interconnects? and did it have the optional output transformers for those XLR outputs?

    likely I will have the Nagra HD with those transformers in my room briefly this week along side the GG.

    Bonzo,

    You can declare your opinions are fact all day long but in the end they are still only your opinions. Room, system synergy, musical tastes and personal preference all play into what one considers to be "best".

    Agree. As an example I really prefer the NAGRA or my VITUS over the DAVE and my best friend find that his DAVE is clearly superior to booth !
    On the Go: RWAK100 > Chord MOJO> JH Roxane, Fostex TH-900, HE-X
    At home : ARIES > Chord HUGO (to be soon 'upgraded' to ??? ) > BHSE > STAX SR009
    -> for sale : Piano Forte PFVIII, Eddie Current 445 tube Amp (with many different tubes).
    Review Chord MOJO v/s HUGO et WooAudio WA8 v/s TU-05 & HUGO

  6. Thanks Alpinist thanked for this post

    Re: Nagra HD DAC


    Interesting your battery powered comments , I'm of the same opinion , my first battery powered device was in the late 70's and then as you i felt we lost drive and dynamics , smooth but soft . Well since then i have had and heard many different ones over the decades and still hold on to my original findings . Some years ago we were listening to a Pr of Rowland research mono blocs and i had mentioned how the amps sounded smooth but lacked jump almost as if they were Battery powered , turned out they were ...


    Most recently a good friend had just finished his Battery powered Phono stage and we both felt it was too laid back and soft sounding vs my Fet10 phono stage , we will see if that changes with a new Linear supply ..

    Regards

    The Best Amplifier is usually the best after considering the load being driven and demand , Ked did suggest it could be different on a different pr of speakers just not so on the YG ...

    I have encountered the very same effect many times over the years ....
