Et merci pour vos conseils

Audio-GD A1 Power Amplifier Balanced
After three weeks, my Audio-gd A1 amplifier is finally acquiring the tonal density and sound fluidity I was awaiting for. These are essential features as I mainly listen to classical music: Claudio Arrau's piano, in Brahms, or Jessye Norman's voice in Schoenberg's Erwartung are not easy feed for any amplifier. Here, they are reproduced with great panache and feeling. I don't know what genre of music kingwa listens to, but I must say the neutrality of his audio devices is never sterile or indifferent. And I'm still awaiting the opportunity to experiment full ACSS wiring for the first time!
Having acquired through Magna Hi-fi, some years ago, an Audio-gd DAC-19 and a NFB1-Amp, I was enjoying them either with my Yba amplifier and Thiel loudspeakers or with Hifiman-he560 headphones. Later on, Jos expertly modified my DAC into a NOS-19, which is wonderful. As I preferred the Audio-gd to the Yba preamplifier (which is quite more expensive), I was wondering what would be like having a full Audio-gd system. I now have a Master-1 preamplifier (second-hand) and this A1 I've acquired again through Magna-Hifi. Jos was right telling me that I would be satisfied with the A1. I didn't wanted to have an huge amplifier as the Master-3, although I'm sure it is very good. It seems no one is talking about this small power amplifier (the aluminium case is, in itself, the heat-sink, which explains its small dimension), but I assure you it is a very musical amplifier, with excellent dynamics and power reserve.
Although I'm living in Portugal, I see Magna-Hifi as my main audio providers and counsellors. Yes, they are in the Netherlands, but when you are interested in Audio-gd (which is not, I insist, an anonymous «industrial» hi-fi maker, as there are so many in China or elsewhere) the only thing I can say is that Europe makes sense! And I'm talking not only about commercial convenience, but also about friendly exchange and trust. Many thanks!

Audio-GD R7 R2R Ladder DAC Magna Upgrade
Net heb ik mijn R7 opgehaald, alle updates en tweaks zijn door Magna Hifi gerealiseerd, bovenstaande is voorlopig de laatste, .. denk ik.
Net even 45 min gespeeld, de set is dan eigenlijk nog niet eens goed op temperatuur.(Line Magnetic 219 buizenbak van 55 kg, duurt even )
Maar toch, een aantal dingen vallen direct op;
het is nauwkeuriger in de weergave, beter te volgen maar ook beter geplaatst, met name van voor naar achter heeft alles zijn plek. Er is letterlijk meer waarneming van de ruimte informatie.
De afbeelding is breder, maar de de muzikanten iets kleiner maar strakker omlijnd.
Tonaal smoother, en lekkerder in het top hoog, randje scherpte wat er soms is bij bepaalde nummers, lijkt verdwenen.
Ook het laag is opgeknapt, ervaar het als meer en strakker. (Ik speel met monitor luidsprekers)
Al met al positief, en dat zo koud neergezet en de DAC minimaal ingespeeld.
Kortom blij mee .

Audio-GD R7 with R2R Ladder DAC Magna Upgrade
I have everything up and running now, alot of new things to learn and test regarding the R7s different modes.
Now it's a couple of weeks of 24/7 "burn in", really excited!
It sounds fantastic already after just a couple of hours, very relaxed and organic (non digital).

Audio-GD R8 with Magna Hifi R2R Upgrade
The sound has changed significantly, definitely in the right direction. It is much more open, transients are much better resolved, hardening
are barely recognizable. (Burn-in time!), Significantly more air between the instruments, room depth !! Much less digital! More details and therefore fascination! More sounds !!!
Even more important to me, however, is that the musical flow is clear! has become better, you can follow the structures better, you stay with the head in the music!

Audio-GD HE1 & Master 3 power amplifier
here is only one word for thie HE1 + M3 upgrade "WOW".
The sound I experienced before was very good. But with the HE1 it took a big step forward. I did not expect that. It lifted to another level. Voices , instruments, separation between them, deeper soundstage. After a couple of hours it was almost ghostlike.
It became so real as the artists actually was in the room. My speakers stood up to the test and presented everything very detailed and never any harshness with a strong articulated bass. Also impressive.
