I recently read some old online comments from individuals that swapped their NAP250's for one of these Dynavector HX75's, so when one came up locally a few weeks ago i thought 'why not' so bought it out of curiosity and decided to have a bit of an experiment so hooked up the 62/Hicap to it and took a leap...
For the first week it sounded a bit rubbish, but two weeks in now and to be honest, it's absolutely knocked the crap out of my beloved 250! so much so I'm actually considering ditching the 250 which I can't believe I'm saying!
I'm quite angry with myself and should have left well alone but it's too late now! This thing is just better. Vocals just breath so much more, and details and tones are there that I never realized before. All the PRAT is there as usual and my toes are tapping just as much as ever. There might not be quite the absolute low frequency clout that I'm used to with my Saras but the bass has a nimbler, more agile and subtle quality now that I don't think I can go back. Even the harshness from the supposedly fierce tweeters in the Saras has gone and is smooth now but just as detailed and has much more finesse and quality.
Anybody out there have any opinions/comments/advice that might make me want to keep the old girl? I have never had the 250 re-capped so am unsure what level of improvement that would bring compared to the level of enjoyment the Dynavector is giving?
