Now after finally getting my hands on a pre loved Snaic 4
Really enjoying the added benefits from the Hicap DR with my XS2.
Bottom end is a lot tighter with greater definition and impact.
Soundstaging is bigger, more open than before.
Clarity, imaging and extra finer details have improved dramatically.
Vocals sound more organic, less forced.
Overall the XS2 sounds more in control and less wayward than before.
Really glad that I finally took the plunge and went with the Hicap DR.
Yes, I do notice that a lot have described the HC paired with a Nait XS to be “manic”. I’m just a bit confused on what the word means in terms of sound character. Does it mean more “shouty” (which I think is not so good), or more dynamic (which I think is good)?
Well done! I also have a HC DR serving my XS amp, despite is not a very popular combination, i reckon it brought better control and oomph to the amp. I’ d also try a Powerline if you want to maximize the performance of your system
