*Pics I promised; but the unit is pending*
I had this unit...along with the matching irDAC-II...BNIB; waiting to put together, for a 2nd system. Not only, did a 2nd system not materialize; in the meantime...I kinda decided, to turn in my Audiophile card and downsize and "simplify" my Main rig. So, then...and only then; did I crack the seal on this unit. I downsized speakers, and paired this with both Dynaudio EMIT M10s; and Revel M106s.
First; this is not, your Father's Arcam Gone are the days, of laid-back dynamics...and an overall "dark" sound. Thank you...class-G!
That being said; it is, still British...lol. So...rest assured; "musicality" trumps any technology or engineering. Sounded, particularly good; with the Revel M106s (also for sale). They have a nice, extended mid-bass; that for whatever reason...the A29 accentuated, and sounded great with. But; I'm doubling-down...on the "simplifying" thing, and trying active speakers (one less box). So; I'll move this on, to a good home...with barely any time logged on it.
Perfect and l o n g feedback. Buyer to pay, s&h and PayPal fees; unless we agree, on something else in advance. Got questions? Let's talk shop
