Some of the DIY "Eastern European"/Slavic systems I "hear" on YouTube seem to have very amazing Tone on "selected cuts".
This is the best description I heard to date.


From my limited experience I very much agree with that and it is very much NOT something I'm after.
Disclaimer: I have no idea how Lampizator does on other material as I was not choosing
it in order not to influence the designers assesment of our device.

R2R Ladder

Paul S,
Seems most of Lampizator models has "R2R Ladder" as a option now, as used to be on the Level 6: http://lampizator.eu/Fikus/PRODUCTS.html

Here is the expensive unit I saw first:

Solid construction and fancy parts, for sure, but my uber question - of course - included the question, what - exactly - are people listening to with this DAC, and with what sort of a system, and how does this affect/improve the Music? At the last hi-fi show there were only headphones to listen to streaming sources converted by these DACs/DSDs. I know there will always be people who spend money on specs and hearsay because they can. My selfish reason for asking is to fish in case there's anything actually interesting going on. Usually a thread like this goes cold fast on this board, but you never know. Paul S

Paul, FYI Lampizator will be with his, presumably, flagship model on the Munich high-end show.It will work on our Stacore anti-vibration  platform.Best,N-set

I've heard better sound from R-2R converters than Delta Sigma. Audio-GD Master-7 with eight PCM1704UK sounds musical and involving and the amount of details is scary

Schiit Yggdrasil is another DAC I like to hear:

New CEC Reference DAC DA0 3.0
I have heard DA0 3.0 / TL0 3.0 in my friend system.
I listened to this DAC/Transport in a average 2way living voice system without good cables. it is hard to speak about new DAC but It try to share my feeling.
I am familiar with sound of CEC TL0 Transport , I feel the sonic character of CEC DAC is not quite similar to CEC Transport. their sound have some common grounds but not completely similar.
after 3 hours of listening :the music energy was not absent in sound , I had a dynamic ,fresh and powerful feeling in sound and I had a good feeling about micro dynamics of DAC. the DAC was not cold and it was not lame in micro dynamics but it was different to my nos DAC (Audio note DAC 5 Special).
