    Review and Measurements of the Topping D70 DAC

    Unfortunately, there is no detailed manual in the box and I haven't seen such in the web. I think the best way to find out what to do is ask Topping guy directly. Someone from Topping was active here on ASR forum, I saw his detailed explanation how to set up D70 on "DAC only" mode. I don't...

    Review and Measurements of the Topping D70 DAC

    I can't say for sure, I use RCA and don't have optical wire. RCA and everything on the back I can check with my fingers seems to be very solid and stable. All this box (metal, pieces precisely connected) seems to be solid done. First impression is good. Sorry that I can't help more.

    OK, so what you wanna know? Amir did his job very well, as always - just jump to page 1 in this topic if you wanna know numbers. Technical data? Inputs, outputs, DSD range etc. - all is known too since day one. I own and listen to Topping D70 for over two weeks. Are you interested in my opinion...

    You are looking for information? What for?... These wise men who know better already told you: all DACs sound the same. Better remember their kind advise: if you dare have a different opinion, find yourself another forum :facepalm:

    Review and Measurements of the Topping D70 DAC

    In my case difference was bigger, I suppose. My Marantz CD6006 with its years-old Cirrus-Logic DAC is probably not as good as D50. To be honest, my first impression was totally different than yours - I simply didn't expect as big progress. But don't worry - it's very possible someone here will...

    I can't compare my D70 to D50, but bass played by Topping D70 is definitely better controlled than played by my previous source, Marantz CD6006 wit Cirrus Logic chip, same as in Topping D30 AFAIK. It is deeper too.

    Is Soekris dac1321 worth buying?

    Thank you for your advice, but all is done, I bought a new DAC. I finally decided Topping D70 will be a better choice. Sounds much better than Cirrus-Logic in my Marantz CD6006. I'm very happy with all changes in sound. My speakers seem to be happy with a new companion, high tones are harsh only...

    Mates, after one week since I received Topping D70 I can say: don't hesitate, buy this DAC. I payed 440 USD and I'm very happy with its sound. It's worth much more. 400 USD is a real bargain. Very natural sound.

    Impressions, part II. Do you know "The Ambient Collection" Art of Noise? Beautiful remix, very relaxing. Highly recommend it. It is also well recorded. Sound is spacious, a lot of interesting things happen in the background. I know this record very well, all changes are obvious to me. This time...

    Jeez, man... I don't talk to people about their religion, so I'm not going to explain you how wrong is your attitude. I don't care you believe in Jesus, Flying Spaghetti Monster, Allah, Cthulhu or this strange Compare Them Blind diety you probably worship. It's your private thing. Untill you try...

    Review and Measurements of the Topping D70 DAC

    I said very clear my Topping D70 arrived today and I had an opportunity to play with this toy for very limited time. I'm pretty sure it was obvious for everyone - including you - there was no "blinding and level matching procedure". So, your "question" was not a question really. It was a...
