Because of yesterday’s bad weather, I switched off the SN2 and other gear. Today I switched on everything to watch a Berlin Phil concert of Mahler’s Rueckert Lieder.
When the baritone went up a couple of gears, we could hear some nasty distortions. At first I blamed the recording, but no better with Schubert’s Unfinished. But maybe the Concert Hall didn’t have a good day. But unfortunately leaving the Concert Hall and instead streaming music produced the same result.
I did check the speaker and the DAC with my other system, and I did use the SN2 with different speakers. The finger points clearly to the SN2…
I am flabbergasted — what did the switch off and on break? I wished I had been lazy yesterday and didn’t switch off… I guess sending off the SN2 to Sheffield is unavoidable?
