    Audio-gd Master 7 Singularity Review (DAC)

    I bought an Audio GD ref 5 a few years ago after reading a load of hype on our local audio forum. Now I know why it sounded so bad. I put up with it for about a week before moving it on. It looked nice inside though. I’m glad I’ve never risked Audio GD again.

    Imaging and soundstage. What are they and who hears them?

    As background, for the last few years my system has consisted of mainly Accuphase gear which I bought as a bonus to myself after retiring. I bought this gear before becoming a reader of ASR. I have been into HiFi since the 70s so have had a lot of different gear over the years My system consists...
