Right now I have Theata Pearl transport by a Audioquest VDM5 solid silver coax to a Simaudio Moon 300d dac by VanDenHul The First ic to a Lightspeed Attenuator by Dueland DCA16 ic to a Burson AB160R buffer by VanDenHul The First ic to a Belles Reference 150A V2 amp by PS Audio Reference speaker cables to Thiel 2.4's. Power cables are all Shunyata Sidewinder VTX except my amp is a Wireworld Siver Electra.
Now I love tubes. I have tried to get as close as I could and still enjoy the goods of solid state. My system transports me to where ever the music takes me. That is a pretty nice feeling.
I’ve had similar great experiences with Costa and Costa.
Several years ago, I purchased a new Neo 260D CD transport. I already had a Bryston DAC which I thought might be better than the $1000 upgrade board.
When I received the unit from a Florida Dealer, it was quite obviously a demo or used Transport. The Dealer is no longer a Simaudio Dealer after this incident.
Costa sent me a brand new 260D and included the $1000 DAC card.
He said I might find it better than my Bryston. It BLEW it away, so I sold it.
I mentioned to Costa I was interested in their 700i Integrated Amp to Drive my Focal Sopra 2 speakers. A few months later he called me to say he had a mint 10 condition unit I might like in silver which was my first choice.
I had it in my home the following week.
Great People, Great equipment !!!
PS: the 700i is just awesome for driving Sopra’s.
