I’m curious what the next upgrade you’re contemplating it making is and why.
I have two upcoming items. My current system is in my profile.
Speakers: the Ulfbehrts are highly dynamic speakers and pack a huge punch and soundstage, and stands equally huge in my comparatively small listening room. I’m currently breaking in a set of Alta Audio Alec’s which are amazing in their own right. More on this later.
I took the plunge and ordered a HOLO Audio May DAC KTE Edition. Having only experienced the DSD and chip DACs so far, I wanted to try an R2R DAC. The reviews of the May DAC impressed me enough to give it a shot. Input-wise, it’s comparable to the Directstream Sr. sporting two custom I2S inputs. It’s being built now and I expect to have it in hand next month.
Exploring tonearms… TBD.
Other minor changes:
- Added The Funk Firm’s Achromat on the SL-1200GAE to replace the rubber mat because review.
- Ordered a RAL HDMI cable based on the hype.
- Bought the Iconoclast SPTPC speaker and XLR cable set from a fellow forum member to replace a current Iconoclast TPC cable. The XLR will replace a Audio Envy XLR from the SPP. Looking to see if it’s better than TPC.
- Swapped Tungsrams in the BHK Pre with a fresh pair of PSVANE’s latest 12AU7 series because the Tungsrams were making light scratching noises. These PSVANEs are dead silent and perfectly matched. No volume clicks.
Those are my next steps. What are yours?
