Default Denafrips Terminator + DAC

I just received a new DAC to replace the Lumin X1 DAC/Streamer that I had used for the past several years.

The Denafrips Terminator + is proving to be a "Stradivarius" of a DAC with only a couple of hours on it providing a completely holographic soundstage from my modest system. As an aside, it is built like a tank coming in at pretty close to 20 Kg in it's "birthday suit" if that is of any value.

I'll come back after an appropriate break in period with any additional thought that I have.

Happy New Year folks!

Usually the way it goes in this game.

OP. Congrats on the upgrade.

I have a Lumin U1 connected to a Bryston BDA3 DAC, playing through a PrimaLuna EVO 400 and McIntosh MC 462. I’m very happy with the overall soundscape. I would recommend buying a streamer with the option of adding on an outboard DAC.
