I have had my DirectStream for a few weeks now and it came with the 1.21 software installed. I use a MacMini as source connecting to the dac using a Kimber USB cable.
My problem is that when playing music the singer that are supposed to be in the center is standing to the right in the soundstage and when checking this using a test record ex professor Johnson
XLO test record the left, right is ok but the focus in center and in phase is not that good and then when trying the out of phase everything more or less shifts over to the right channel.
Probably this is the imbalance that appears and this is what I am hearing.
I have checked my amplifier and speakers and their placement in my room and its ok.
If I play music from my Cd player or record player I don’t have this problem and my previous AMR DAC did not cause this problem either.
