    Sennheiser HE-1 Orpheus in Guangzhou

    Hi~

    I visit Guangzhou in China for handing Korean foot damper to Sennheiser and Light Harmonic.

    Attachment 35421

    Orpheus 2's sound is mostly great, but selecting other componants is not good. (especially W20)

    The system I heard is below

    Light Harmonic [Da Vinci MK II]

    In Korea, no one used Da Vinci. I was impressed with Da Vinci's fast response and great resolution.

    I love it.

    Aurender [W20]

    I'm Korean, but I use Lumin U1.

    Aurender W20's sound's dynamic and texture is not good.

    HI FI Stay [Hard Point {Trinia}]

    In Korea, most audiophile used this item instead of Stillpoint.

    LH is very satisfied with it.

    Trinia is a lot cheaper than Ultra 6. (about 50%)

    HI Esotar , how would you compare the Da Vinci DAC to the Trinity . Were you able to draw any conclusions ?

    It's hard because I didn't A-B Test.

    Before get Trinity, I had tested A-B with Vivaldi 3 stacks, C1+X1, Diamond DAC V.

    All is great DAC, but I selected Trinity.

    Trinity : 16/44.1 vs. Others : 24/96

    I think that Trinity is so far than others.

    After getting Trinity, I tested comparison to Select II.

    When I play Trinity after Select II, I turn it off in 15 second. ha ha

    That's in line with the general feedback received. Me am happy with second best at half the price. Try your DAC with the Trinity Pre Amp. Pushes the transparency, musicality a good few notches coupled with their ultra low distortion signature.

    I thought I was OD ing on Entreq, but you the grand master :=))))

    Esotar,

    you have similar system to mine......speakers with Accuton drivers, darTZeel amplification, Entreq grounding, and have similar conclusion as me favoring the Trinity dac above all others except the Select II.

    I am humble husband.
