I listen to all kinds of music: Jazz, Classical, R&B, Pop, Flamengco, South American, Asianahe sound stage.
You can say I am a bit of an analytical listener. I love clear and detailed sound across a wide and deep sound stage.
I listen to live music and know what real instruments in an orchestra sounds like. I would like to get as much of the that live music feeling as possible in my home using more affordable near high-end equipment.
Like to know whether DAC-10H or Alita is better for me.
Does DAC-10H/Alita provide some kind of theatre by-pass?
One system configuration I am thinking of is to connect ST-10/DAC-10H to a Yamaha RX-A3080 receiver which is used to power a 7.2.4 Atmos system. The thinking is to use a ST-10/DAC-10H to drive the Focal Aria floor standing speakers as the front speakers in the 7.2.4 setup. At present, I have a stereo system in one room and an Atmos system in another because the Yamaha RX-A3080 simply cannot deliver the sonic quality that I can accept for 2 channel music. Ideally, I can free up one room by combining the two systems.
