    I too have enjoyed and loved my Lumin! I had a Linn streamer and when Lumin came out with the original A1 I bought one. I've been extremely happy with it, absolutely no problems whatsoever.

    I'll be interested in your opinion when you compare the Lumin to the internal DAC of your Diablo. I have a Diablo 300 and an original Lumin A1. I opted to not get the internal DAC for my 300, guessing my Lumin would satisfy my digital needs.

    Just so I understand. In order to improve the sound of Roon, you install and configure HQP on another computer. Then, in HQP, you set it to upsample everything, even PCM red book to DSD 256/512 using a ASDM7EC modulator with a poly-sinc-ext2...

    Anyone who hasn’t compared Roon to TAS or Aurender or NAIM, really should. Hopefully some folks who have made this comparison based on sound, will chime in. We have a Nucleus+ and a Taiko Extreme for running Roon. It sounds like HQP really can...

    Hi Kiwi,

    I have read some of your posts on Audioshark and noticed that you used to be a big Nordost fan who started using Ansuz products. I am about to embark on a similar route and start by changing the power distributor. I am currently using a Qbase with Qkore1 plugged in and would like to replace it with the new Ansuz Mainz8 D2 once it is released on the market. Have you ever compared the D series Mainz8 with the Qbase that had the Qkore attached? Additionally, I am using multiple Nordost TC cones under my components , are the Ansuz DTC Darkz better in your opinion?

    Thank you very much for your reply.
    Have a lovely Sunday.

    All the best,
    Martin
