Previous DAC was a G4/L5+ Lampizator.
There has been a change in sound after 48x hours. I'll wait another week to collect my thoughts and conclusions, and post them here when the sound has stabilised.
I took delivery of the AC Kassandra 2 Ref. yesterday. I was unable to audition so wasn't sure what expect.
It is different from the previous DAC, but before I draw / post any conclusions, I'd appreciate fellow owner input on when your units sound stabilised to its final state. 1...
Thanks to everyone that provided input. After much consideration of the excellent advice, which it might seem I've ignored but haven't, I've ordered a Kassandra Ref Mk2. Should be here in 4-6 weeks.
Thanks everyone for the input. Really sounds like either option could be an improvement on what I currently have (5x year + Lampi L5/G5). I'm using Jriver currently, into a VTLS400 into Genesis G2Jrs. A server upgrade is indeed on the cards.
I must admit to being concerned about the Audio...
Good morning / afternoon / evening.
I'm a music lover based in New Zealand. I've assembled a reasonable system to listen to computer based music and streaming via JRiver.
I have come into some money and would like to significantly upgrade my Lampizator DAC. It has been very enjoyable however...
