    I did not like the Pontus compared to the Yggy.

    My yggy was in for a Gen V upgrade when the analog upgrade got announced so I decided to get it done. I was thinking of selling after the Gen V upgrade since I'm happy with the Holo lvl 3 (and SFD I MKII). Get it back tomorrow so we'll see how it sounds...maybe I'll keep all three DACs.

    Cloud stuff is interesting but I haven't really looked into it. Maintaining my own NAS has been pain free. You still need the streamer to get the music to the DAC unless your DAC has something built-in, which may be the future?

    The source of my streaming data is an NAS on my LAN. That's what the streamers I am talking about were designed for and those came out before internet streaming services like Tidal. The internet streaming features are being added now, but were not there in the beginning. That's why the observation is misleading.

    Uh, that statement makes no sense to me and is misleading. I don't use any internet streaming services. That's not what a network streamer is primarily for, they are to stream your media to a DAC and avoid having another PC with a USB connection to your DAC. Sure, most of them do Tidal, but that's not why they were created.

    Good to be seen (: I have a sonore signature rendu. No USB (because I never liked my system enough with USB in the chain). It's ethernet in and BNC or i2s out. I don't do DSD so don't care about that. All my music is on a synology NAS.

    what does sign/magnitude mean, i googled without much success.
  11. Very interesting indeed. I had just thought Bob Katz heard things differently and I didn't agree with him. I must have a warmer Utopia...
  12. Just switched from HD800s to Utopia on the mini susy dynalo and while the soundstage is different I would definitely not call it small or a bother at all to me. I did notice the smaller stage when i first had the headphones but i don't anymore, not sure what changed.
