    Nagra HD DAC X

    There is no need for an Upsampler if you use the Taiko. I sold mine as it did not improve the sound when playing from the Taiko. So you need only the Vivaldi DAC and Master Clock.

    Nagra HD DAC X

    Off course, the Nagra is much better sounding. I was just commenting the signal processing. I owned the Nagra HD DAC for two years and it did sound amazingly good. Very analog. The Rossini is not at all as good sounding as than the Vivaldi.

    Nagra HD DAC X

    Well that is exactly what PS Audio is doning: https://www.psaudio.com/products/directstream-dac/ and at a much lower price…. Have you listen to the Nagra DAC and compared it to e.g. the dCS Vivaldi DAC? I am thinking about replacing my DAC.

    Nagra HD DAC X

    What I meant was, how does the DAC convert DSD music files? There are only two ways to do this, either with DSD over PCM (DoP) or by using a resistor ladder. Do you know which one of these methods Nagra uses? (I agree about your comment on MQA BTW)

    Nagra HD DAC X

    Do you know how the conversation is done? DoP or Ladder…? Also, is it MQA compatible?

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    Magico is a brand with good reputation, but what about Wilson Audio? They have made loadspeakers for almost 50 years and in my opinion, they make, without comparison, THE best speakers. Do yourself a favor and go and listen to the Wilson Alexx V, or Chronosonic XVX... Wilson Audio - Alexx V

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    If I want to remove the Taiko Beta app completely from the Extreme server, so that it always starts with the Roon server and nothing else, how do I do that? Even if the Taiko app sounds better, it is a dissaster to use…

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    I agree that the sound quality with TAS is superior to Roon, but still, every time I decide to use TAS, I get frustrated. Sometimes, TAS creates a total mess of certain recordings and I do not have time to sort out all these anomalities. Look for example at what WADAX is doing: They have...

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    I would like to propose that Taiko Audio should spend their time and money on hardware design instead of reinventing the wheel once again. Let someone better qualified do the software design. Or why not let TAS be a Roon plug-in, the same way as HQPlayer. As it is now, I have never seen a media...

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    I use two of these set to 44.1 and 48 kHz output to a dCS Vivaldi DAC. The Mutec MC-3+ units receives accurate clocking from a Mutec REF 10 120 SE master clock. This combination gives a far more accurate sound than with the dCS Vivldi Clock - and at a lower price… The Mutec REF10 120 SE is...
