I'm considering building a new system with NuPrime as the digital front end and amplification. I have a few options in mind:
DAC-9 + STA-9
Balanced, separated digital and amplification PS, option for dual mono.
DAC-9 + STA-6 (probably a dual mono setup)
Single ended, separated digital and amplification PS, dual mono amplification. More neutral presentation (per description).
Shortest signal path, one PS shared for all. Less costly, more practical. (STA-6 will have to be returned...)
My sources are all digital. I'm leaning to option 2, but wanted to gather some feedback... Comments, suggestions?
My current music system is a mac mini -> NAD D 7050 -> Lee Taylor Concerto's.
(the NAD D 7050 also gets input from TV and Airplay (not critical) or USB from iOS devices)
I've already bought a STA-6 and use the NAD as a dac/pre only. And have a taste of NuPrime..
