    It depends on your intended use case. For example, if you want to stream you can do so via HQPlayer Client app which does not require ROON. Depending on your system and network setup this can yield the best streaming in terms of sonics versus ROON...

    My Oppo 205 uses the same DAC's as the Topping, uses a similar way to overcome the "midrange hump" (summing the output of 2 of the ESS 9038PRO chips) with (very likely) a better output stage. Over about 50-60 hours of comparison with this to the...

    Hello Mr Mike.
    Sorry if I said something wrong ,since I'm new to this hobbies.

    Today I auditioned 30.2 with NAT SET monoblock. The voice was so full of body but I still miss some bass and I think it kinda rolled off in high. The equipment separation was good only some albums.

    Then I auditioned Diablo120 with their Mojos(different dealers). I'm amazed with the soundstage, image and how clean they produced them(is that mean they bright?), but instantly I miss the Midrange and full body voice feel of Harbeth and NAT.

    Will Diablo produce better midrange when pair with Harbeth??

    I still waiting to try Luxman next

    Thank You Sir.
