    I use the Kitsune HoloAudio Spring DAC in a different system/location than the Bricasti. The Spring is a great DAC, but a few years old now, and discontinued with the new DAC you are asking about.

    I ordered one at the end of January as well as a Rockna Wavedream balanced to hopefully replace my PS Audio Directstream and Luxman DA-06 from 2014. I will let you know my findings after they get here. Hopefully it won't take too long...
    Main System: Audience AR6-TS -> PS Audio Directstream DAC -> BAT VK-52SE -> BAT VK-655SE -> Revel Salon 2's (Thanks MDP!)

    Re: Holo May KTE DAC

    So the Holo came about 2 weeks ago and the Rockna Wavedream Balanced came today. Further impressions incoming. I have been listening to the Holo in my desktop system (Luxman LX-550A2 and Harbeth P3ESR) and just moved it to my main system today (BAT VK-655Se, BAT VK-52Se, Revel Salon2) after a couple weeks break in. My intention was to put the Rockna in the main system and Holo May in the desktop system. I am also planning to order the Rockna Wavedream NET for the main system but have not yet. So far, The Holo May is the best thing I have ever heard.

    Mine showed up Friday afternoon and while it sounds pretty good right out of the box looking forward to the improvements that the recommended 500 hours break in brings. Knocking the Aqua out of the main system won't be an easy task.
