I recently purchased a used DSD Sr. and AC5 from Upscale Audio. I’m traveling right now so it won’t arrive until early June. To say I am anxious and excited to get it is a massive understatement.
I’ve read most all available online reviews I could find on Sr., so I have a general idea of what Sr. Excels at. What I’m wondering about is the potential degree of differnce in separation, detail and musicality that Sr. Could bring to my set up.
I’ve enjoyed the Bifrost in my system for many years so it’s hard for me to wrap my head around the potential magnitude of this upgrade. I realize there are always loads of system-specific variables at play but Is “night and day" a fair expectation? That’s fine of its not, just super excited over here!

I’m thinking the Pi USB setup maybe the weak link there? I’m open to suggestions. I’m also open to a Bridge II once funds are available.
