I just wanted to add that when the Topping is used with a Cambridge cxn v2, it sounds fantastic. Not sure why the it didn’t pair as well with the Denon, but enjoying it with the streamer. Sound is very detailed, improved dynamics and very natural sounding. Focusing on the drums on the Smiths, This Night Has Opened My Eyes, you can hear the peddle almost bounce on the skin. Very detailed not just a one dimensional drum sound. The bass also shows levels of detail. When I switched to my tube dac, much less clarity. It is heading to the sales department! I realize I prefer the solid state dac with the tube amp.
P.S. I apologize for hijacking’s this thread.
