Chopin, Liszt, Debussy: Piano pieces - Miyuji Kaneko          (1 of 2 found this review helpful)
  June 14, 2014

I would like to bestow my own title of "SACD of the Year" and "Records To Die For (all time)" for this disc. This has superior interpretation from Maestro Miyuji Kaneko as well as state-of-the-art recordings done by Exton, commissioned by Esoteric Japan. The comparison between the two microphones ... more
Stravinsky: The Firebird - Litton        (5 of 12 found this review helpful)

Can't imagine the single person who voted NOT to recommend this. Please get your ears checked or something must be wrong with your system. Very good BIS signature recording which is highly transparent, has great dynamics and sounds its best on multichannel set up. About the performance, Litton and ... more

Not so in my opinion if you are talking about the sound quality of latest Marantz NA11S1 vs Sony 5400 or even the latest HAP-Z1ES. As a DAC on Marantz, file player on HAP-Z1ES or 5400 SACD Transport/Player, playing same DSD materials (downloads or DSD bit perfect files from SACD), the Marantz NA11S1 tops the Sony in quite a lot of areas. Even after ... more

Right now running 2x Mytek for 3 channel only (mostly Analogue Productions stuff) and my ears are craving for more. Probably a good addition will this extra channel. I would have to position the third speaker of course to make it rear ... more

Well, why not try Corning USB3.Optical. with USB A male connector to B female gender changer. Probably the best USB cable from the source to the DAC anyway. You can have this in 10m-30m length, there are plans for 100m version in the future. Works for all my current DAC (Mytek, Ayre, Marantz) and I am sure it will work with others as well. The ... more
