Ho abbandonato il vinile 20 anni fa sostenendo che oramai il digitale era oramai maturo per competere alla pari con il miglior vinile.
La mia scelta tecnica è ricaduta sulla tecnologia zero oversampling il dac e stato costruito da un artigiano di alto livello .Considero questo dac un esempio pratico di come si debba costruire un oggetto che non faccia rimpiangere il vinile.
Hi, from your words I assume you own an Ongaku. Have you tried some analog devices with Ongaku? Ongaku was been developed from Kondo san with analog sound in mind, this is the best way to hear analog. Try Ongaku with an M7 riaa (phono only) and a Kondo step up + a mc cartridge and you will be in the nirvana. A curiosity: are you italian?

A new place to hear the Ongaku...

Destination Audio and Prana Distribution are very pleased to announce Audio Limits of Nevada as a new team member representing Destination Audio and Audio Note. Darrin O'Neil the founder and owner of Audio Limits has been in the audio business for 30 plus years. His matter-of-fact, easy-going nature belies his expertise and a long history of firsts in the U.S. industry.

Beginning with Audio 51 some 30+ years ago, Apogee Acoustics and Hales Loudspeakers along with Weiss and CEC formed the genesis of what would become Audio Limits. Audio Limits expanded the undertaking with such venerable brands as Audio Note (UK), Weiss, Forsell, FM Acoustics, Nearfield Acoustics, Tom Evans and Thrax. Those were the early days of distribution.

Now extending their portfolio with Destination Audio Field Coil Nika's and the Destination Audio Reference GM70 Integrated Amplifier, Darrin is writing a new chapter in Audio Limits' long storied history. You can hear the Nika's along with the Audio Note Ongaku or the GM70 from Destination and other top brands to compare and contrast. Here is Darrin and his father, Gene, sorely missed on the audio trail.

Congrats to Darrin, he's a great guy! Just to note it's mentioned that Audio Limits represents Destination Audio (which is great) and Audio Note. Audio Limits does NOT represent Audio Note Japan/Kondo. I believe that Darrin does have an Ongaku but Audio Limits again does NOT represent Kondo.
