I've now had the Mainz DTC cable in my system for a few weeks, it replaced a Diamond into an Mainz 8D which moved further down the chain replacing a Ceramic. I think the way to describe the...

I just have to add my final thoughts to the preamp discussion as I finally got my regular signal cable today (after an RCA to XLR switch) and it all fell into place again. If I had even the slightest...

haha, the nervosity was not that serious... :) I do understand what you mean though, and it gives me something to keep in mind and look into for future possible upgrades. I do know that I would at...

If you ever would find the time and curiosity to try without the preamp, don't forget to share your findings... :)
Joe got me a little nervous the other day with his post saying he always...

I've read about it, but never tried it. My thoughts when getting the Nord was that as it's quite transparent and showing no mercy to sources upstream I wanted any colouring to come from my Lampi...

I'm so old that I used to have lot's of CD's which are now ripped in FLAC format, but I'm also doing streaming through Tidal (Roon). All my cables are Ansuz, except for ethernet cable which is...

I'm currently using my Nord directly with my DAC and while I'm not really missing anything I wouldn't say no to trying a Bespoke Audio passive pre-amp one day... :) It's probably about matching...

Ahh, sorry... I'm slowly starting to understand why my old teacher had me to re-do the geography test over and over until school ended.... :)
Believe me, I'm too struggling with those prices... :)...

Yes, it's gone. Also I'm in Europe so probably not the cable you would want anyhow.
February 13, 2017, 10:42 AM
Will do. I have a lot of "burning in" to do though, with new signal and power cables, dac/preamp and poweramp... I've changed everything at once here completely against all "rules", but according to...
February 13, 2017, 10:31 AM
haha, one recommendation in each direction, of course.... I guess I need to try it myself as you say... :) no shortcuts!

So while waiting for my Mainz D-TC cable to arrive (for the Mainz8D) I decided to get rid of one of my two Mainz Ceramics and keep my Mainz Diamond instead. It's probably for the best as I'm likely...
February 9, 2017, 10:20 AM
So I just ordered a D-TC Mainz to replace my Diamond... :) Even though I've not got it yet I actually feel quite satisfied going this route with 1 DTC + 2 Ceramics instead of all Diamond. It also...

I'll just chim in a few words about my new Nord One UP SE amp... I think I owe it to this thread if not else...
I've only had it playing for a few days, but I can clearly say it has already...

I'm sure they will, I'm just afraid these noisy devices will disturb the other devices by their current leakage into the Mainz 8. But maybe I need to just test it and see what I prefer...It's nice...
January 30, 2017, 06:27 AM
Thanks! I never thought of that. Damn, I can see that I'm going to end up with D-TC cables one day after all... haha...

I've been thinking of how to organize some of my equipment lately. I moved away server, NAS, routers etc from my audio rig and is currently using WiFi to send the audio stream (a long ethernet cable...

Hmm, only connecting the powerbox to a Mainz8D and nothing else? Instead of buying Sparkz you mean? (quite a price difference though)
January 30, 2017, 05:18 AM
You make it sound like the powerbox is optional, I thought it was required for the interconnects? Can you clarify?
January 30, 2017, 05:09 AM
I actually think if was a nice review, of course discussing some of the known issues with early class D and other similar products as expected. There is only a short quote from a reader at the end,...
January 29, 2017, 01:49 PM
Class D from Nord is the future? :)
The ending paragraph in which comparisons are being made to two well known swiss brands kind of raises the bar of my expectations quite a bit... if that...
January 24, 2017, 09:14 AM
I will be careful to not recommend anything I haven't tried myself here, but I wouldn't be surprised if the D-TC would do wonders wherever it's being used. Another thing to take into consideration...
January 23, 2017, 04:39 AM
Thanks all for your opinions here... I think it does make sense, just that I thought that I should never even consider the D-TC, but....ONE power cable probably doesn't hurt...:)
January 21, 2017, 05:24 AM
This forum is dangerous. I said only weeks ago I would NEVER go down the D-TC path. I've always thought that eventually if/when I'm going to upgrade anything I would go from my 1 Diamond (into Mainz...
January 13, 2017, 04:57 AM
This is the power configuration I started with (along with interconnects) and with which I got my first (of many) "being blown away" experience. I would really make sure to aim for that Ceramic from...
