Denafrips Pontus *15th* ?
@vthokie83  I am using the Venus II and Hermes combination via I2s and it's pretty damn good. I also updated the firmware to the latest, I feel I am not missing out either. These DAc's are really good for the money. I like using the Hermes as the... 
The new Coda S5.5 amplifier: It's a "Petite Beast"!
It is kinda small for those Legacy Aeris but the Wavelet II can help a lot. I have the same combination, just with the Focus XD, the next step down from the Aeris. That room is not kind to the sound that you are capable of achieving.    
The new Coda S5.5 amplifier: It's a "Petite Beast"!
Yesterday I was doing some listening. I use the Aurender N200 through Qobuz. Anyway, when i make playlists they sometimes are done on my Phone with headphones and songs added to the list don't always sound good once played on the big rig. This was... 
3 choices for power amp
+1 @vinylvalet   The Coda is very special!  
A stupid question(s) about power cords
I am of the impression that if a piece of equipment is connected to a new PC and at least turned on or on "standby" it will also achieve "credit" for burn in hours. It doesn't necessarily have to be playing music? I have a new power cord attached ... 
Aurender Conductor V4 and Qobuz phone app don't match
@12many  What do you mean from "both devices" as I don't have C4 on my phone, it's just the normal iPhone Qobuz app which has all my playlists on it.  . @tvad I checked and conductor is fully updated, so I deleted C4 on the iPad and reinstalled i...

The new Coda S5.5 amplifier: It's a "Petite Beast"!
Before I describe my new Coda S5.5’s sound I feel the need to reveal that I made several changes to the rig prior to adding a new amp. I placed my my VAC Cla1 Mk III tube preamp and VAC Renaissance 70/70 Mk III Signature amp on consignment to fund...

Spatial Audio Raven Preamp
Hi remember me, I started this thread. 😁 Anyway, I finally got my Coda s5.5 amp introduced into my system. (In user systems) I replaced my VAC Renaissance 70/70 amp and VAC Cla1Mk III preamp. I use the Legacy Wavelet II as the preamp/crossover/DSP...

The new Coda S5.5 amplifier: It's a "Petite Beast"!
I FINALLY got my Coda S5.5 going today. (I have been without the rig since December 2023!) It was quite an ordeal because yesterday when I got it connected there was distortion! It took me all day of fruitless trial and error. I narrowed it down t...
