You may remember my thread “Pulled the trigger on an nDAC”…great thread and great piece of kit.
I learned a lot about the digital side (having spent about two years working on my analog), but one thing that I became aware of was that I had a “mullet” system because I was streaming from Spotify using my TV and Toslink.
It became apparent to me when I used high quality Spotify vs high quality Tidal with NO difference on the TV. This is what confounded me because I’ve enjoyed the current system so what might possibly be coming out of a streamer?
I was actually not aware of the fact that a streamer could do a better job so I was intrigued and wondering what I could be missing so I want to try the streamer. Since this is the source we are talking about, it could be a major deal.
System will be: ND5XS2 → nDAC → NAIT XS → HiCAP → NACA5 → Naim Credo
I could not swing the DC1 and would have had to order it anyway so I’m temporarily using a Chord Shawline BNC digital cable and will eventually upgrade to DC1. Streamer and interconnect will arrive next week.
I’m running out of room, so I will have to put my RP6 power supply and my Stageline down on the bottom level with my HiCAP…
Next upgrade will be the DC1, and maybe 2 more Powerlines.
After I get a full loom of Powerlines I want to trade the NAIT XS, HiCAP, and Stageline for a SN3.
