I'm looking to upgrade my source and I'm pretty locked on dcs. I currently own Esoteric x05 as a transport together with bel canto dac3.5. I'm partial between taking a dcs Puccini sacd player with the u-clock or staying with the esoteric as a transport and leap towards a Vivaldi dac. Anyone compared the Puccini with Vivaldi ? Is the exxxxtra cash on Vivaldi justified? Thanks in advance to all repliers
I have the Puccini with U clock. I've heard the Vivaldi Dac in my system. It is definitely a big step up from both the Puccini and the Scarlatti which I also own. I hope to get one myself soon. If you can afford it I would not hesitate.
