I want to clarify a statement I have made a few times.
When I say laptops are not good I mean for dsd
pcm weather it’s clean or not works fine and only on loud hinted complex music does this become obvious unless you knew what to Karen for or know the magic very well.
During these passages the staging can move or become blurry. The over stsging may move around.
Now on dsd it’s different or sound ok but it’s not how good dsd sounds it does not blur it’s just not clean and shiny without being Fatiging.
I think now that the ds does good dsd with the past couple of firmwares a regen and an I7 cpu can give a good showing of this fine dac
an I5 is just not good enough for me and I have heard many and have pointed this out in person to them. Even a laptop with a an I7 beats up a desktop with an I5 on dsd.
but laptops in general for me loose the hi end details this dac Can give us.
