I would like to start a new thread purely focusing on the new Snowmass OS for the DS Junior. The “other” thread has completely devolved into trouble shooting and editorials about PS business and service practices.
So with that said…I am not instantly warming up to SM. I am loving aspects like an extra layer of detail drawn out and a more accurate representation of drum tones(cymbals are extremely good). I also find it just as dynamic as RC, which I found to be a RC strength. I am not as of yet getting the smoothness others are reporting but just a broad relaxed presentation. I also am getting a dryness in the mid-band that probably helps expose details. I think, based on memory, I am missing the vocal presentation from Redcloud, I really enjoyed it in my system. I do not like swapping incessantly back and forth looking for comparisons but rather digest big chunks as I seem to break in just as much as gear sometimes. Monday evening I am going to reload RC and post my thoughts again. I listen to mostly all kinds of Rock and in a near field type set up. I would live to here your impressions and how they compare or have changed with more listening.
