I am glued to my listening chair.
I started with the purchase of the Venus II and was pleasantly surprised with the build-quality of the device and the sound of this DAC. Naturalness and dept of the instruments are very good.
Last month, my 8 years old integrated tube amp of a famous tubeamp brand had to be repaired for the third time. I decided this time not to send it back for servicing (again) and to wait for several months before i get it back.
So with the sound quality of the Venus II in mind, i knew that i had to look at Vinshine Audio.
I decided to go for the Kinki Studio EX-M7 stereo power amp.
I had some doubts to decide between the Kinki Studio EX-P7 preamp and the Denafrips ATHENA preamp. Alvin explained me the difference between those preamps.
I purchased the Denafrips ATHENA.
After setting everything up, i was blown away. Without burning in, there was already a big soundstage.
The EX-M7 has a tight grip on my speakers, bass is fast and deep. Kinki Studio and Denafrips seems to be a very good match.
Now, when i start ROON and select shuffle music, I am glued to my listening chair. My wife has to remind me several times that it is time to go to sleep.
