That’s really good to know. Are you using the internal DAC? What did the C6i replace. Sorry for all the questions!!
Ask away mate !
I use the internal dac via coax from a Bluesound Node 2i for daily streaming duties, and it sounds fab. The line in also sounds great, it is fed by Rega Saturn R cd player.
it replaces a Cayin CS88a, which was great. But I think this beats it for clarity with a tighter and more nuanced bass. I was hesitant about it having a sketchy/thin top end with it being class d, but it has exceeded my expectations. Top end is lovely, controlled and smooth.
the previous year or so I listened to a few amps including Rega Elicit R, Naim Star, Primare i35, Hegel H120, Roksan Kandy K3, Rega Elex R. Admittedly most were all at different times with different speakers. I liked the Hegel, and was very surprised by the Roksan but I am very happy with this C6i.
