    got lost bout page 9 or 10 so mebbe already covered at some point
    my best experiences of didgital have prob been marantz 63 signature as a cd player proper full of verve n detail
    limited dac experience to beresford caimen which sounded great at time now got hugo 2 which is good, heard against a tt for same price n picked the mk 2 version of norm hugo as far more detail even though the tt had the power n soundstage. did say at the time if they did a tt2 id be after one new chip is so detailed. so now just a matter of time before i get tt2.

    Default Topping D90 DAC

    I can't write this without superlatives.

    I decided to bite the bullet and ordered the new top of the range Topping dac. It arrived this morning and has blown me away.
    If you are thinking of spending up to 3k on a dac, don't. Spend 600 on this beauty and fritter the rest on wine and women.

    The performance is frankly stunning, so far I have tried it on Coax, USB and BlueTooth and they are all superb.
    It's difficult to describe just how good this sounds, solidity, detail, clarity. Everything sound 'kin amazing.

    If it wasn't for the lock-down I'd invite you all round to take a listen.

    Read good things about the d90. Sure it will be a good dac. If it had a headphone amp in I may have got one.

    Now you are just starting on the D90 Alan, it really can expanded up by a significant margin though this does involve losing the stock casework.

    When finished it definitely competes in the 5K territory, plus you can splice in a decent work clock then it puts a smile on your face.

    Have upgraded five of these so far, and have more than happy owners.

    For sensible outlay these are great products.
