"this sounds like an actual piano."
I wanted to provide you with a preliminary report on the Denafrips Terra. It's amazing! This is my first external clock purchase and I didn't expect such a big improvement. While listening, it was the first time I ever said to myself, "this sounds like an actual piano." The Terra offers a different presentation, for sure -- a veritable wall of sound sprinkled with morsels of microdetail. The music is bigger and broader now. There are nuances in the bass region I never heard b
Both sound amazing and the built quality is irreproachable.
I have been a happy owner of a Kinki Studio integrated amplifier and a Denafrips Dac for a few months now and they both sound amazing and the built quality is irreproachable. In short, they are both great bang for the buck. I'm not sure what my next upgrade will be but brand distributed by Vinshine Audio are now on top of my short list.

The sound and transparency is phenomenal
This is probably the cheapest high-end and high-quality balanced preamplifier you can get. The sound and transparency is phenomenal. I built several preamplifiers in the past and I also own a Boulder 810 preamp. I just upgraded to Denafrips Athena because I was so happy with Hestia.

Music has more life, drive and rhythm.
Dear Alvin, I have been listening to the Iris DDC plus Ares II on my laptop for a week or so and it is a real improvement over the Ares 11 used alone. Music has more life, drive and rhythm. Before the Iris, the Ares II with laptop sound was not so good as my Ares 11 with CD transport (Cambridge CVC S2). With Iris added to laptop, the sound quality is quite close to CD. However the Iris does need some 'burning in' or running in. I left it playing all day for a week or so. The
With the Denafrips Ares II the impossible has...been achieved.
Hi Alvin, Your email just arrived as I am listening to your product. I am very happy to say I am simply delighted with the Ares II – listening to CDs has now finally become a regular thing for me. I was one of those who was a committed hi-fi enthusiast (listening to vinyl) when CD first arrived all those years ago. I found CDs to be a great disappointment in sound quality – they never sounded natural or real. With the Denafrips Ares II the impossible has, after so many
Voila, Athena the original super woman re-imagined for the 21st century..
6moons Review • Athena Preamp "For a final takeaway, think of Athena as a modern high-resolution deck which prefers not to wear resolution on its sleeve like an approval stamp from the hi-rez police but instead wraps or disguises high resolution inside a more 'organic' gestalt. That's heavier on weightiness and dynamics, lighter on outline edging and ultimate contrast. Voila, Athena the original super woman re-imagined for the 21st century.."

The soundstage representation is amazing.
I received my TPlus DAC yesterday. I just hooked-up the USB cable and powered the unit. Music started to play immediately. I am blown away by the sound quality of the DAC and it is probably not fully broken in yet. The quality of musical instrument's timbre is very natural. The soundstage representation is amazing.
