Review: Holo May (L2) DAC and the Musetec Audio (LKS Audio) MH-DA005 DAC Compaired
@stuartk I don't of any.  
Holo may lte vs denafrips terminator 2 vs musetec da005
@dougthebiker Yes, the computer sources were, as explained in the review, used because I had two which facilitated quick A/B comparisons. (I mentioned the Zen Stream only to confirm that network bridges do indeed make an significant improvement.... 
Review: Holo May (L2) DAC and the Musetec Audio (LKS Audio) MH-DA005 DAC Compaired
The May verses the 005 seems to be discussed on a few threads here. I just posted this on one of those threads: @Technorob said: “I currently have both 005 and May. The May just edges it in most areas by a small margin, with the exception of laye...

Holo may lte vs denafrips terminator 2 vs musetec da005
@Technorob said: “I currently have both 005 and May. The May just edges it in most areas by a small margin, with the exception of layer separation, stage width and depth where the May is significantly better.” I will throw in my thoughts. I can d... 
No love for Legacy Audio
I owned the Legacy SEs for a few years. I loved the sound of the tweeter. It was very alive and natural. Gradually, I fell out of love. With acoustic music the imaging and center fill were just off and I couldn’t correct it with repositioning. I d... 
Musetec (LKS) MH-DA005 DAC
@benzman  I agree with the other comments. You will probably hear natural realistic details in the music that you didn't notice before. Brightness is just not in the equation. In a poor implementation  brightness is a cheap trick to suggest resol... 
Musetec (LKS) MH-DA005 DAC
It is gratifying to me to hear of your enjoyment. I'm glad, along with others (especially Melm and SNS), to have helped spread the word.  
Musetec (LKS) MH-DA005 DAC
@Melm  Very well said.  I agree.  
Musetec (LKS) MH-DA005 DAC
The author of the Enjoy the Music article states in conclusion: “When it's your money buying something for your system, to be used in your listening room, for your enjoyment, no opinion matters but your own.” This is a pure subjectivist view. It ... 
Musetec (LKS) MH-DA005 DAC
@melm  You stated differences in perspective perfectly.  Hearing live unamplified music these days is very infrequent for most. We are on the same page 100% in our sound preferences. I respect the idea that enjoying music has no single best method... 
Musetec (LKS) MH-DA005 DAC
@Technorob23 I understand what you are saying about the May versus the 005. As I posted somewhere after I wrote my comparative review, I found the May's  separation and smooth texture very appealing, but ultimately lacking the fine resolution of ... 
Thoughts on the iFi Zen Streamer
I bought the Zen Stream last summer. It was my first and only streamer which I use with a very good dac, the Musetec 005. I use it with JRiver to access local files from my server and stream internet files from Qobuz using an android app called Mc... 
Emm Labs DV2 versus Tambaqui
@arafiq  I don't get what you  mean when you say: ". I’m sure it’s a very good dac, but these underhanded tactics are definitely raising suspicions." Are suggesting some kind of conspiracy?

@rc22  Just to be clear, are you saying that for you the supra cat 8 and the EE switch worked almost as well without  the Eno filter  in?
