Default Ma-9000

Hello all,

I was just wondering if anyone has one of these MA-9000s and if so, is it as good as Jeff Fritz from Soundstage Ultra says it is????

Specifically, how is the DAC compared to let's say a PS Audio Directstream DAC.

My source is an Aurender N100H, so streaming Tidal is already there with the source.

Thanks,

Jeff

Just sold it and moved back to a C2600/275 combo. The 9000 is phenomenal, but I missed tubes . Plus, I think a new pair of 611's might be in my near future.

Did close to the same thing. Had a C52 and MC452 combo. Missed tubes, sold the pair and bought a MC275 mk.6 and C22 mk.3 pair. Happy in the tube glow again.
