Sonos Connect ULTIMO
After running in with continuous playing for 2 weeks the newly modified Sonos Connect I can state that the performance of the Sonos Magna Ultimo produces an overall improvement in sound, resolution, bass, mids and stability of the of the room and quietness. Improvement in highs is less obvious.
I feel that some further steps in improvement would be likely with selected cables and a higher-end dac/amplification.
Most of all I am happy to be able to keep the very comfortable control app of Sonos in streaming Deezer HiFi (16bit/44.1kHz), which is 90% of my music listening habits.
So, in the meantime thank you very much for your service and support.

Audio-GD R7 HE
After careful listening mode NOS 3 is the most suitable for my listening .
The musical spectrum is greatly improved at the low-end much more layered. The treble overall is soft and at the same time very dynamic

Holo Cyan DSD
Massive piece of gear! DSD sounds great out of the box, even with PCM. Impressive bass.

Audio-GD R8 Ladder DAC
Vive le R8, il dépasse sensiblement en performance le Singularity 19 Warmer !! Le plus flagrant concerne la micro-dynamique (profusions de petits détails, inflexions délicates des voix…), la profondeur de la scène sonore et la stéréophonie encore plus libérée.
Merci Jos et bon week-end.

Audio-GD R7 ladder dac - Highly recommended!
I find this DAC the best of the (Audio-GD) dacs I have ever owned!
The R7 is now in my system for more than a month.
I have listened to the NOS 3 setting but I prefer 8xOS which gives for me the most detailed but still smooth sound with an unrivalled 3D soundstage!
The DAC is connected to my Master 9 pre- & Master 3 power amp and the source is a Mano ULTRA. Next step would maybe be a SOtM ULTRA with SPS-500 and network upgrade Magna is offering. Or as Jos suggested earlier: Try the MWAY ACSS interlinks.
I am not the first one to say but buying from Magna Hifi makes it a personal first class experience!!

Mano Streamer - great support!
Finally succeeded mounting the NAS Disc to my Mano Ultra Streamer. Good to have people like you to support noobs like me, even at midnight ?. Right now I’m rescanning my library into LMS.
Thank you so much for your -continuous- support!
