Exogal DAC

Hi there,

I'M looking for a Wadia DAC and know the new Exogal is the new company of Wadia's original designer, is it true that the Exogal is the same house sound of Wadia previous DAC ? really appreciated anyone can give comments on it.

I like super fast sound, tight bass, transparency, crystal clear sound with no warmth, prefer in cool side of sound.

Thanks in advance.
I have both the Wadia Intuition 01 bought when it first came out and the Comet/Ion which I just recently acquired the Ion and have had the Comet for about a year.  As much as I've enjoyed the Intuition I would trade it in for another Comet/Ion in a heartbeat!  I have yet to do a side by side comparison BUT the Comet/Ion just makes the music come alive with feeling that grabs you such that you want to hear more and more and like a drug you can' t seem to get enough. And afterwards nothing else I hear can hold a candle to it.  I recommend a test drive but the price/performance will be difficult to pass up.  Exogal doesn't really promote use of PLCs or PCs which is bonus if your on a budget but I use RSA PLCs & CH Acoustic cables exclusively with both of these PowerDACs.  When I do a side by side sometime soon I will provide my input but that being said the dagogo review is truly spot on Exogal may just be a game changer and start a paradigm shift from Analog to Digital.  I can't wait to see what these guys come up with next because they have already literally rocked my world.
A follow up to the above discussion with poster named thankful; I migrated away from the Mac Mini and the use of HQ Player with it. This is still a great option for those who cannot afford a proper server. I am now using the Salk StreamPlayer Gen III following its own review, which has no need of enhancement software such as HQ Player. 

Geekster, glad you liked the review; I think traction on discussion will pick up substantially as more people try the pairing of Comet and Ion. I don't typically do a sales job on friends, but an audio buddy who followed me voluntarily with the Comet as he heard it in various systems I called and told simply, "Buy the Ion." He did and is ecstatic. Exogal does not recommend use of USB enhancement devices, etc. as they are moot; the Comet makes an entirely new signal anyway. 

Thankful, Oh, goodness, my friend, GET going on an aftermarket power cord! You will gain so much more performance, and this is also true of the Ion PowerDAC. 

I have made many systems, both review and personal, with the Clarity Cables and they continue to find favor. I also very much enjoy their USB cable. 
I have mine on the marketplace right now, because I have the same preference in sound as you do.

The Comet doesn't have the treble energy I'd like and falls to the warmer more saturated side of the spectrum without sacrifcing micro-detail by going too thick. It's smoother and has less fast attack than my older NOS dac(save for the bass where the NOS becomes flabby.) The man I bought it from said "Think Vega but better, maybe more color."

Technically it's solid, the only other DAC in the price range I've heard was a Quest yle and it's dryer than that, far more detailed. But as I say above its far enough from my preferences that performance ceases to matter, I prefer a more top-down kind of sound.
redfuneral, did you do comparison of cables? You can change the character of any DAC quite a bit by using alternative cables. For instance, I have three USB cables which change the character of the system dramatically, and placement of different power cords alters the sound for either top or bottom end enhancement. 

It sounds like you like the Comet, but wish there was more upper end energy. That is relatively easy to come by with cable changes, and I think you would avoid shrillness, or stridency, in the process.
