Luxman DA-06

I’ve had a Chord Hugo TT for over 3 years now. It’s a great DAC, but since buying my Luxman amp I’ve had one eye on the highly regarded DA-06, attracted by the promise of a smoother, more “analogue" presentation. The 230V model rarely comes up for sale but one popped up on “The Wam” recently. I...

Most likely. I understand the appeal of valves but not at the DAC stage.

Re: What vinyl did you spin recently?

There's some great Peter Green stuff on Fleetwood Mac's first Greatest Hits record: https://www.discogs.com/Fleetwood-Mac-Fleetwood-Mac-Greatest-Hits/master/119892 I also really love the first two albums with Buckingham and Nicks. They've received some stellar AAA remasters too. This pressing is pro...

Re: are you on other hifi forums?

It'd be a shame to close the forum. Maybe just a rebrand? Cyrus seem to have given up on proper Hi-fi.

I'm Warszawa on HFWW and PFM.

Have you tried the M-Scaler?
Not sure whether to demo TT2 first for the filters. The endgame will probably be TT2 + HMS though.

Re: Luxman DA-06 DAC [SOLD]

so did the chord hugo tt win out? It did. It just gels with my system that bit better overall. Both have their strengths though. The previous owner preferred the DA-06 to the TT and only sold it as he's upgraded to a D-08U SACD player. Horses for courses. I'll put up a review sometime. go nicely wi...

Re: a petition that already has 3.3 million signatures

I signed it, somewhat reluctantly as I don't believe the government should simply revoke article 50 without a public vote, but then again I don't think that's really the intention. The idea is to force the debate and increase the pressure on the government. If you're skeptical about the figures, let...
