I was reasonably content with my system, but had gone down the proverbial rabbit hole in an attempt to get the best out of it.
After a several months of many tweaks, I decided that I should upgrade my streamer.
I was using a Lumin U1 Mini USB --> Matrix SPDIF-2 --> Wireworld Platinum Starlight 7 HDMI --> PS Audio DirectStream DAC i2S.
I have always aspired to get into the ‘wonderful world’ of dCS, so arranged to audition the Network Bridge.
My dealer set up the NB with the PS Audio DS & P15 Power Plant and Gryphon Diablo 300. They’re not a Wilson dealer, so used Magico A3’s.
As soon as I pressed start on my playlist, I was hooked!
During the audition, I kept looking at the various other dCS components on the racks next to the NB…
and started to wonder…
(you can guess where this is going)
I just couldn’t resist the temptation…
to hear the Bartok…
and then the Rossini DAC…
which was delivered yesterday, together with a Rossini Master Clock!
It sounds superb already, so I’m looking forward to the burn in process (I’m assuming 100 hours…?)
I failed to resist temptation, but what I’m hearing is amazing, and makes me very happy!
To quote John Miles;
Music was my first love
And it’ll be my last
Music of the future
And music of the past.
To live without my music
Would be impossible to do
In this world of troubles
My music pulls me through
