Hey, guys.Did all you M2-D2 owners suddenly fall into musical nirvana and stop feeling the urge to post about your experiences/impressions with this DAC? C'mon already. Gimme something to read, please!
Tony,I found the preamp to be substandard at best...very interested in your findings with a pot upgrade.BTW What pot did you settle on?Chris
Hi Tony, just wondering why you replaced the DS. And how do you compare the sq between the two. I have been looking at both these dacs but would obviously not like to spend the $ on the DS if the MP is really top in sound quality. I just wonder if the MP will be able to play 512. Thx
Just noticed that they released V2. It now has swappable DAC chips.
I was at the the GTG too and I didn't think that the Lampy "blew them all out of the water ". Is there expectation bias here? If its very expensive, it must be better. The good thing about the MP-2 is that it can be tweaked in many ways including, the new version which allows the DAC chips to be updated at will. This DAC is very sensitive to tube and cap rolling. I'm surprised that a competent modder hasn't gotten hold of one of these.FWIW from my impression, under challenging conditions, iI thought that the Lampy had a bit more "air" so that the space between the speakers had more substance. Since I'm a MP2 owner, I hope that further tweaking and rolling will help with most perceived deficiencies. The Lampy is way out of my price range.
I have only owned one proper DAC in my time in this hobby, the ifi DAC 2 with the ipurifier. I am very impressed with it compared to my audio interface that I was using beforehand, I could not believe my ears. My computer is currently my main playback source and I wonder if I should spend a little more for a better DAC. what type of improvement would I hear from a DAC like the musical Paradise. Any thoughts. Please consider the DAC 2 is about half the price of the musical Paradise here in Canada.
I have the Lampi Amber II and I love it. Changing the 12AU7 and rectifier made a nice but relatively small improvement, as did upgrading the fuse with a SR Black. I bought it just before the news of the MP spread and would love to hear the latter: the tube and cap rolling options are appealing. Anyone have an MP in South Florida and want to get together to compare them?
JohnOnly issue I have heard or read about is related to the fuse. It happened to me and per Garry replaced it with a larger size and it has been good for a year since. I suspect repairs would go to Canada where he is.
