I’m planning to try one of the denafrips dacs one day to see how it stacks up against my modded bitstream. It wasn’t supposed to be my current main dac, it ended up there after I put it up against my lumin d1 with sbooster. The lumin earned top spot over chord and benchmark, the lumin presented a much more musical, rhythmic, enjoyable realistic performance. But one day I figured I’d see how the old bitstream stacked up. And it was preferred by me in every configuration I tried wrt cables. Once optimized it was so clearly superior to the lumin dac, the lumin digital out fed the bitstream. Just a little extra info here, I also owned a modded bidat and kept the bitstream dac. I could rarely tell them apart and would occasionally prefer the bitstream. People say these dacs are analog sounding but I don’t really get what that means. To me this old dac presents music through my system in a way no dac has before. However I’d love to hear the denafrips products.
