My name is Bertrand, I’m new here, live in France, so be indulgent for the vocabulary… and i hope i post at the right place.
So, I just bought a second hand DS with Bridge 2 in replacement of my network player Bluesound node2 and my ps audio nuwave dsd. I have a naim supernait 2 as amp and B&W CM10 S2 as speakers. I purchased it from an Italian guy who bought it from an Italian dealer HIFi Prinzio. Unit looks mint, cosmetically new. It was manufactured in april 2015. It’s for the little story of this DS.
After a comparative test between the DS and the nuwave, I come back with some questions:
to clarify things a little bit, I did the test using the bluesound player in coaxial and with cables in RCA for the connection to the supernait 2 amp.
And, during the test, with equal volume, I have a noticeable difference of sound power between the DS and the Nuwave.
The nuwave sound lauder, and I have to play with the remote control of the amp to put the sound at the same level.
I specify that coaxial source, on the display, was with volume at 100%, filter checked so that it is not at “60” and phase on “in”.
Would you have an advice or a solution for? Or it’s may be normal?
It’s the same with Torreys and Huron.
I also have to say that in my ears, and with the material of this test, the nuwave seems as qualitative as the DS. To tell you the truth, I’m a little disappointed.
But I think that with your help and advice, I’ll be able to optimize it and make it more qualitative.
One question more: I‘m already registered on Qobuz for the music… So would have you a solution to read music files with the Bridge2, from the streaming website Qobuz, which is also an excellent streaming website with a very good catalog? I guess you probably know it! But, may be I’ll find the answer on your forum !
Thanks for your answers !
