Who has has a totaldac DAC?


If you have one, or have listened to one, Please share your thoughts and experience. If you specifically have the d-1 tube, that would be perfect. If you live within driving distance of Burlington, VT, please invite me over to hear it, and I'll bring some good single malt 😉

I've heard one very briefly at a show. Too quick to say anything more than that the room sounded very good. I recall it as a fluent sound. They were demoing the amps and didn't say which Totaldac they were using, they had a whole rack. They used Swedish Marten Design speakers.

If you are shopping in that price range they are worth hearing.

I’ve heard this reviewer’s system (Edgar Kramer), RedBook cd’s being converted by the top TotalDac with separate power supply, into a Lightspeed Attenuator into Gryphon Antillion Evo poweramp driving Wilson Alexia MkII’s. I can tell you it was a very profound moving experience.

Depends on what you consider driving distance,   :)   but I am in NE Oklahoma with a full Totaldac Twelve and Server. 4 chassis. It constantly blows my mind. It really freaks me out.

Happy to entertain for a weekend.
paul79,

Nice! Thanks for the invite, I might take you up on it sometime.

As you can see the measured noise on the graph in the above link I posted, is incredibly low well below -150db, the only two noise peaks are at 100hz and 200hz which are mains related, and is apparently eliminated with the even better optional up-rated power supply which Edgar got after the review went to press.
