Quad rate DSD- mmmmm sounds good not so sure about the words final update for DSD owners - end of the products line /life.  Presume reborn perfectwave DAC to be released end of year or so to match new transport ( guessing- so please don't sue me if wrong). 

 

If anyone has already downloaded- what are your thoughts. its meant to be a big change.

Sunlight is amazing, Ted the master has done it again, everything is better, what a great last update. 

If I liked people I'd have a GTG to show off this old DAC 😁

Although I had a successful load, Sunlight sounded fat, slow and hissy.

I reverted to Windom, and then reloaded Sunlight - and it now sounds right.

 

So if you’re finding that you don’t like it, reloading is worth a  try

Seems okay.  I used Rebbeca Pidgeon “the raven” as a back to back comparison. To my old, tired ears seemed a small improvement but not night and day.  It HAS added additional “toe tapping” so that’s a good indicator. 
Have been listening to a few other discs so I’m obviously happy. Currently on PF but not sure about the accompanying wine! I do have a bottle of DoSM but that has to wait for the other disc.
