Is it only me or everyone is having same experience with Yale Final.
The sound has changed so dramatically. I’m using DirectStream Dac from the pre-order lot and probably this is the upgrade which for me the most significant so far.
The bass is so defined, the voicing is properly balanced between the high and low frequency, the Cymbal sound is so perfect (it is my reference instrument), and the piano. Applied the upgrade today morning and I can’t help but keep on listening one album after the other. It is so magical to me.
Is everyone else experiencing similar change ? May be good or not so good or bad for you but there is a huge change. Especially when I play the ripped red book CDs, PCM 172/24 and DSDs. Not that much noticeable change for low def mp3s like AAC etc - though they are sounding too reasonably soothing. It has changed my overall system’s characteristics (with Tube pre amp and Tube Power Amps) completely.
Thanks a lot Ted for your continuous strive to make this DAC better and PS Audio allowing free upgrades. You guys have made my day today !!!
