Both the Sonica and UDP-205 are a SIGNIFICANT step forward in terms of resolution, detail, dynamics, bass and sound stage. The new Lundahl transformer coupled, fully differential tube stage with 6922 driver and tube rectified but SS regulated external supply is simply the best work we have done to date!
I am very excited about both of these!
We blew people away with the Sonic at Axpona and will blow people away at LAAS with both the Sonica and UDP-205. We will have two Sonica DACs at our Tryst Headphone display booth and a UDP-205 in a room with WyWires cabling and Studio Electric speakers!
