Thanks Salas! Yes that could explain the improvement I hear, I have one balanced cable between preamp and power, maybe that part is not so sensible. I could move that cable to the dac and use the RCA between pre and power instead, I can always compare. I also finally updated the software in the dac so now it can play 24bit/192kHz DSD files via USB, I will listen to some of that tonight. First impression was that it is better than "Cd-quality" WAV files .

Had to return the dac, but it was surely a vg sounding dac to my ears. Very detalied and powerful with great dynamics and clarity.

Missed it quite much so I got another one to see if it is the dac for me.
Have to cut some costs but oh well, this is a big part of my life so might be the right step to take. Back later with a review if I keep it.

So finally my cd-player was replaced with a ma-1 dac today . A big upgrade for me, I will give a short review of it when I am ready.

Thanks, it was the right choice I think. I need some adjusting to playing ripped cd and I have only tried a few free DSD music files. But both sounds very nice.
I will post some pictures tomorrow, now I say good night.

Thanks, I bought a demo unit since yes it is expensive. No plans for new speakers for now. To begin with I am out of money after this dac purchase .

Default Dac in place.

A picture of the dac. What is different then? It sounds more complete from bottom to top, more details and live feeling. I get the feeling my amps and speakers are not showing all it can do, but it doesn´t matter since it is much better than with my old player .

Happy with my dac, I have tried a few different USB cables. It is not hard to hear what different USB cables do so I have to find one that works best in my system. Speakers have no problem showing what happens when you change something. I had some unevenness in the mid range on piano that I will investigate, I need to adjust the positioning of speakers a little to get it more even. As it is now I have mostly cared for bass performance trying to compensate for the room, but some attention is needed for mid range perfection. And I should get some curtains in my room but I always push that in front of me since it is boring.
