Oops. Sorry, since you replied to my post addressed to John, I didn't paid too much attention and just assumed it was John who replied. My apologies.Lol, I'm Don, not John, and I guess I'd say yes, I think it's great, though mine has some modifications, as detailed by GaryB above. I am sure John may chime in here later.
What are you using for a DAC now?
I am not using any DACs right now, I am just starting to build my system. I used to be a big HiFi head, worked at a large regional electronic chain store when I was in high school, that's how I was introduced into the world of pristine sounding equipment's.
Just recently, decades later, I've upgraded my Adcom pre-amp and amp combo to an Yamaha A-S2200 integrated (I know there are a lot of audiophiles out there who would laugh at an equipment that's not from a boutique company of the likes of Krell, Classe, Parasound, Musical Fidelity, McIntosh and Luxman, but we can save that discussion for another day). Still running on my 20+ year old Mission speakers (when it was made in the UK, though I will upgrade those eventually) and just got a refurbish PC as my digital source (use for streaming). I plan to use the USB input on the D70 with my PC. I also still have a 20+ year old Sony XA3-ES CD player, which I will also send the digital signal to the D70 and use it as a transport only; that too will be upgraded eventually.
I really wanted a dual mono setup and easy on the wallet, hence I am looking to get the D70. I was also considering the Gustard A-22, but not ready to spend that kind of money yet (I was told by apos.audio that the Gustard X-26 is discontinued).
