    This is exactly what I think. My dac has an ESS Sabre ESS9038 which is not bad. I would like to get out the most of it. And as I heard my i22 in different setup, I know it has reserves.

    Massive thanks to all of you. 1 meter can be short for me, so it would be 2 meters. I am on the old continent, so no more futureshop (or other british one :( ). My source is a pc (no hdd), which is connected to the Project dac box, which is linked to the i22. I was thinking also on a dedicated streaming device, but I do not want another box and spend a fortune on a good one. Regarding the price I will not go over 150 euros. Someone mentioned the Supra. It is around the same level as my QED now. Cno: which Vertere u heard? Iceman: it looks great, but I would never pay US$350 for a digital cable. I need to save up for a Luxman and a bigger Elac :)

    Hey, I am about to change my QED Performance Graphite USB to QED New Reference High-Resolution USB or maybe to Vertere d-fi (however I do not like the fact that they don't specify the measured performance). Do you think I would be able to detect any difference in sound quality?
  4. Thank you. I live in the EU, and I found for 30 euros this: AstroAI TRMS 6000. Is it up for the job?
  5. Hey all, I have just bought a Zoom H1n to record a few tracks with my stereo systems. I would mix the i22 and A-S801 with FS 147 and QA 3030i and Vertere/QED/Supra cables. To me the real issue is how to match the db levels of the amplifiers? Could you please advise on that? Thx.
  6. had vertere d-fi, klotz, qed graphite and now wireworld chroma 8. to be honest, while I can hear a small difference between DACs, not that much between cables. you cannot go wrong with either of the reliable companies. the qed is now 25 pound for 2m, the wireworld is 38, the supra is 42,5. a few weeks ago I bought the wireworld, and it is great. the jitter bug is like placebo. don't waste your money on that.

    The fact that you have not experienced it does not mean it does not exist. My system is after 50 hours. From a very bright and dry presentation it went to a warm, round sound. I can distinguish that.

    Ok, so after around 40 hours the system sounds much better and a joy to listen. It is not a psychological question whether there is nothing below70-80 hz or the top pierces my ears.

    I meant when I modified the tone controls.

    Yeah, I understood. I wrote them about that. Also they informed me that their speakers need 72 hours.

    Sorry, right. I wrote to 46 Hz .

    I tried the tone controls, but prefer the sound of pure direct. Since I wrote last time the sound improved a lot. Bass is back, the system is not bright anymore, less dry, but still a bit mushy. Every day it runs at least 10 hours, so on the weekend I will have a better picture about the real sound signiture.

    The speaker improved a lot. I tested with low frequencies and it is able to deliver even a bit lower notes, so it is not a typo.

    Different room, and I can imagine that is a bright room.

    No, this is my second system, bought it due to home office. The issue is that I am living now in an other country and I cannot go home. I try to be patient and also checked if it is a software thing (use the USB dac).
