sorry if i did not respond to your previous question. sometimes questions do stack up and i lose track....or i get a little unstuck and behind. i enjoy answering, so it’s not a bother to me.
to answer your Tripoint question; for sure "what" Tripoint does, has the greatest effect on sources, particularly solid state sources and preamps. i have a Troy Sig and an Elite (both non NG). my Troy Sig is on my darTZeel amp mono blocks and speakers. my Elite is on my sources.
so put your best Tripoint device and best Tripoint cables on your most significant source gear. #1--preamp, #2--dac, #3---phono.
not had the ’NG’ level Tripoint in my system...yet. congrats if you can snag one.
