Good day all.
My first post on the DSC forum. I would like your thoughts on my current system and the new Bartok Apex.
My current system is full Naim stack running Active Kudos 808. 552 pre…2x 250DR 1x 300Dr, NDX2 with 555Ps at the front end. front end seems to be the week link. Although happy with the general sound it doesn’t blow me away. i recently tried a Chord Dave DAC while this improved things detail wise I found the overall sound quite bright and fatiguing and not really involving which was a disappointment. I have heard the Nd555 in my pretty much the same system as i have at a dealer demo but was rather underwhelmed. I hope to have the new Bartok apex on home demo soon as i have not heard any DSC products but come highly recommended from the dealer that stock Naim, chord and DSC.
as the Bartock Apex is a new product I was wondering how it compares to the current offering from DSC up the range and given my level of system should I be considering the higher offerings.
any feedback would be much appreciated.
