    I don’t have one but am thinking seriously of a new/better dac. This is getting raves right now. I’ve never heard of them.

    There was a lot of chatter on AC about that model a while back but I don't recall if anyone actually pulled the trigger on one. Unlike the Gustard at around $1000 this would be a lot to spend on an unknown. Seems to be a couple of owners on CA but kind of hard to follow those discussions some times.

    Over the next few months, I’m dac shopping. I may need to pick your brain a little.

    Joe,

    Have you ever heard an Aqua La Voce? Just curious... Seems to have your name written all over it... Or do you want something better/higher up than the PS Audio?


    cheers,
    alex

    Hi Alex,

    Never heard the Aqua, but it was recommended to me before. I think I want a sweeter presentation than the PS Audio is giving me. A little more bloom perhaps.

    My friend Bruce and I were talking lampizator over the past few days. Actually, it high on the list but I know they will probably never offer a network input. It’s so nice have a dac with a network interface that’s a Roon endpoint.
