    The first Totaldac D1-Twelve Mk2 DAC in Hong Kong

    Hi CKKeung, Well what can I say ... I was very impressed with the listening offered by the d100, a very very high level of transparency, an extremely realistic dynamic like the instruments in action and an image of a remarkable precision ... in short, a very implicant listening, without detour...

    Totaldac Reference D1

    Hi all, I have also on stage for some time now the UP12, the new AES-EBU Totaldac and without going into details... only one thing is certain for me and my ears, it will stay in place. My musical structure has never played so well... one more time, thank you Vincent! We are few things and so...

    Totaldac Reference D1

    Cool... it could also be my words. Connection and nearness with the intention of the musicians! If there must be a true high fidelity, it would only be this one. It's nothing and that's it.

    The first Totaldac D1-Twelve Mk2 DAC in Hong Kong

    Hi Dthagerty, Owner of the Trium Virat Totaldac, d1-Player, Streamer and Direct, for almost 1 year, I can only understand and share your enthusiasm. This composition (which each brings his own stone to the musical building) also, offers me a stunning feeling that I could never imagined in its...

    The Uptone Audio EtherRegen audiophile switch

    Yep... "la routine" as we say in France. I tried this Uptone switch last weekend and I personally preferred it to the aqvox SE. I found it less "coloring", it is more as a transparent catalyst, in fact, a facilitator of expression of qualities of my system. Not something that makes your system...

    Totaldac D1-Driver, the (pre)amplifier driver

    Hi, Tonight, a little extra test of cables before and after the d1-driver, this time with 2 ECHOLE, my OMNIA and the LIMITED EDITION version! (kindly lent by Vincent Brient, but no! not nice to try such stuff !!!) and here again the dominance of the first length is significant and in proportion...

    Totaldac D1-Driver, the (pre)amplifier driver

    Yes (or not far)... I made some tests with my 2 pairs of unmatched interconnects, upstream and downstream of d1-driver, and the idea of the most "fragile" signal coming just out of DAC was quite confirmed... it is not day and night but enough significant, at home, the first seems to be the most...

    Totaldac D1-Driver, the (pre)amplifier driver

    hi mister, I hope you are well... the harvest also ! For your question, it seems to me that Alon Wolf (Magico boss) compared this CH combo with a d1-driver (d1-twelve mk2 in source) for his US official showroom and he left the totaldac driver at his place. If that, can give you a first idea...

    The Uptone Audio EtherRegen audiophile switch

    Hi LeBlanc, cool... so what differences did you musically identify between the ER and this cisco ? I am very interested in the Uptone switch, thank you for your feelings ! Does the ER need the ultracap LPS-1.2 power supply or other one to work in the best conditions? Music to all.

    Totaldac Amp-1 poweramp debuted at Munich Hi-end 2019

    Hi everybody, after several weeks of listening, I decided to keep the Amp-1. I still enjoy what the super Absolare Integrated offers (those who own it know what I'm talking about !) but the coherence and the nature of my now full Totaldac topology offers me a form of musical evidence even...

    Totaldac Direct vs Totaldac 7? What are sonic differences? What are technical differences for one to choose one model over another?

    Hi, visual update of my définitive triumvirate source, d1-player, server & direct which can also evaluate itself in a quartet if we integrate the d1-driver (the d1 box under the player box) ! I am reasonable, I would book the d1-twelve for when I would be an big good boy! It's nothing and all...

    Totaldac Direct vs Totaldac 7? What are sonic differences? What are technical differences for one to choose one model over another?

    In the other side, here, do we really need to know that before buying?....if as i imagine this new Live Power is compatible with all Totaldac devices (server, reclocker, dac), you just need to buy one, try it on every item and leave it on the top best sound combination and hop ! sometimes life...
