Default New Topping E30 DAC

After updates to my speaker wires, amplifiers, preamplifier, and adding a new TT and cart this year, I was pretty sure my old Denon DCM-440 CD player was the weak link in my system.

Today I installed a Topping E30 DAC. Tonal balance is largely the same as it was, though I'm beginning to think that the bottom end is a bit tighter. What immediately struck me was an improvement in spatial separation and depth. It's more reminiscent of the sound stage I get from vinyl....not quite the same resolution, but a notable improvement. Definitely recommended if you're considering an upgrade to your CD player.
Sterling Acoustics transmission line speakers, twin Dyna/VTA ST-70 biamped, Lazarus Cascade Preamp, AT-LP120XUSB TT w/AT-VM95SH, Denon DCM-440 CD player/Topping E30 DAC, Lightspeed CLS 3200 MKII powerline filter.
