    Default Topping D90

    Hi All
    I am seriously considering one of these Dacs
    I've read some reviews online,but I thought I would ask members on here for their advice
    I know they are new and wondered if any members had any experience with them
    How do they compare with other dacs etc,such as Auralic Vega for example
    Where is the best place to buy one?
    Thanks all
    Stay safe

    I would say it has it in spades, though I would contend that it depends on your supporting kit.

    My kit is
    Tube Distinctions Soul amplifiers and Soul Mate or Dave Slagle Autoformer
    Cec Tl1x transport
    Quad Esl57s,total rebuild by A Quad thing on Sheldon Stokes stands or Proac 1sc on target R4 stands
    Twin balanced mains for amps and sources
    Rfc Reference Mercury interconnects and Audio Note silver from transport to dac
    Townshend Isolda speaker cable
    Two something solid equipment racks
    I hope this helps
    I also need two sets of 2m interconnects,so if you have any idea about those,any advice would be greatly appreciated
    Cheers

    Big gains in changing the speaker cable I am sure Alan can help you there
    CEC tranny is fine nice and full bodied and TM amps are nice as well
    Coherent Systems
    Real high end sound with musicality not hifi
