Hey mike, We’ve had similar gear paths before and I think I know what you have but not sure... Apart from tube choice, I may be able to help some in the detail department. Shoot me a PM if ya want... Jason
So back to the 2.0 and now with the Taks. Yikes, everything I like about the tube dac was there, but tighter bass and less fuzz. Like in the middle between the KR PX-4s with the 2.0 and the tube dac. I'll chime in when the Taks have some more time on them. So far, I'm really liking what I'm hearing. Buy the way, the 2.0 dac is so much better than the 1.0. It is truly a bargain if you own a LIO and want to upgrade.
A quick update. I just listened again and with the tubes having only 4 1/2 hours on them, I would happily live with them as is and I've read that break in is 200-250 hours. Of course that's in a power amp and not the way they are being run in the LIO, so I guess I'll find out just how long. When I first listened last night what immediately came to mind was "Space, the final frontier." The sound stage is vast, with air and space and it just sounds scrumptious. And that's on a multi mic studio recording. I have never heard my gear at any point in time sound this good to me.If you havn't looked at my system, here's what it looks like from my chair:
I'm assuming you mean me. The tube covers come with the LIO. They work extremely well to reduce noise with the DHT tubes when necessary. The difference I hear is that the KR PX-4s are leaner overall and maybe have better definition in the bass than the Taks. That's not to say the PX-4s are lean, just in comparison. With my setup, I like the fullness of the Taks better.
Vinnie, Are the LIO tube covers available now, or are you still having trouble finding a supplier for it?Jason

Are they otherwise comparable to each other in detail and upper extension? Thanks [a diferent] Jason
