I use a combination of an Akurate DSM Exact/Katalyst and Akubariks completely upgraded as well. The sound though seems to be shrouded, like a curtain is hanging in front of it.

Mostly I use Tidal as source (the high quality subscription). By using a simple Denon record player DP-1200 it sounds better, which seems weird to me.
Can I have done something wrong installing the system? Need of different network cables to the internet source? Or do I need specific settings in Konfig?

Any help is much appreciated.

I haven’t used Tidal or similar but what’s your ADSM like with its other digital inputs - I.e. radio, playlist, songcast, hdmi/toslink? 

My LP12 doesn’t generally sound better to me than music from those other sources. 

So I’m wondering if it’s something  just re Tidal or a problem with all your digital sources? Not that I will know the answer but others here might.

Thank you for your reaction. All the other digital inputs result in more or less the same result, so I try to check my complete setup from the beginning on.

Did you ever resolve this?
