After >48 hours of running in. Had a longer listen to this DAC.
My setup is melco N1A--> wireworld platinum starlight usb--> vishine DAC
Usual setup is melco--> stock melco ethernet cable--> lumin A1
Compared to newly opened unit, the stage does open up. The signature would be warm as compared to lumin in my opinion.
Again, the presentation is punchy and plenty of bites. Good for pop, rap, R&B songs in my opinion. Good attack and I enjoy when I listen to these genre of songs.
If you are using usb interface, I would recommend to invest on quality audiophile usb cable. I get more transparent, lower noise level, better bass extension with wireworld usb cable as compared to the stock usb cable.
Sound stage opens up after running in, with improvement of depth. Lumin A1 streamer + DAC does have wider stage , more layering and holographic sounding.
Considering the price difference (lumin A1 almost 4 times more expensive), one should expect better performance by lumin.
This DAC performs well above its price. I have heard worse performance in similar priced DAC, and even some more expensive DAC.
Overall it exceeds my expectation and this is a good buy for those looking for value for money DAC. Especially now having promotion for the loan program.
Going to pass to the next person, let's see what other bros think about this DAC.
