I read somewhere that PSUs bring improvments (arguable) but make the amp less transparent. What are your thoughts?
I tried a Flatcap XS on my Nait XS2 about 8 months back. I didn't buy it as I wanted to hear a SN2. SN2 is too deep for my room/neighbours. So I stuck with my XS2.
Recently added a Powerline to my Innuos Zenith. My good god. Improvements are unreal. Namely naturalness and way, way, way more analogue sound. My system sounds like I never thought it could.
I'm getting Flatcap XS this week on the used market but my memory tweaked when I read the comment about transparency
Am I better off adding a Powerline to my XS2 or a Flatcap XS and Graham's Hydra to my XS2 and FCXS?
Innuos Zenith + Naim Powerline (Tried a U core. I'll leave that one there)
15cm cheapo USB (Best yet)
Chord Shawline RCA RCA
Nait XS2 (Stock Naim power cable)
Odyssey 2 (Didn't like Nac but that was pre Powerline)
Proac 118 (Thinking about PMC Twenty5 21 or Proac D2)
Using Atacama stands + racking (I can't do Frains or Dreadnaughts right now).
Considerations for next purchase:
Flatcap XS + hydra cable
Chord Epic Twin + Jumpers
Chord Signature TA RCA - DIN or Naim Hiline
Chord Signature TA USB (Dubious as the cheapo cable has been better than anything up to £200 so far)
