The clock guy is planning to move to the Lampi when funds become available - though his planned kid is making him sweat about valves.

    I would rather do a shootout of Lampi with Nagra (planned in Jan) and Tdac 12 rather than Esoteric or dCS. Or, if you have that money, Aries Cerat.

    You may be right I will test in 10 days the K-01x with my amp+headphone, and I will report here my listening impressions.

    I also will try to listen to the VITUS SCD-025 mk2 CD/DAC which is at the same price (anyone heard the VITUS?)

    It's 3 of us who did the compares that are right. I

    heard the Vitus RD 100 which was blown away by metronome. Btw I am a big Vitus class A power amp fan but two others have told me their digital does not match. Check with jazzhead too, he owns the Vitus Class A ano and has experience with their digital

    And that too the Vitus dac's built in pre was feeding a Vitus amp, and the metronome was then plugged into the Vitus pre out

    You also might want to check with Joel on this forum, who is also a 6 moon reviewer, and whom I find very unbiased, why he prefers his Lumin much more to the K03 that he owns

    You might want to start your own thread. You also did the same on another audio site.

    When did I ever state I heard a Lampizator DAC? I have heard tube DACs and all exhibit that tubey warmth which if I'm so inclined I'd get from an amp or a preamp. I'd rather keep my source as neutral as possible. To each his own...

    Also, I've heard TotalDAC, DCS, Aries, MSB, Meitner, Esoteric and others - all excellent and all different. Barring any budget my $ would be spent on the TotalDAC.

    In that group, I haven't heard the Aries, but yes, I too would spend on total dac in that group

    Sharp1080: Congratulations on your new K-01X! +1 on the vote for discussions of other gear to be on another thread. Don't get me wrong, what's on the thread is valuable feedback but this is not a comparative thread. Enjoy your new player!
