Review of Altmann Attraction DAC as seen on :

Posts: 29

Yes please let it go! LOL I had a listening session last night that has just ended (its 7.30 in the morning) and im as happy as larry!

Good point about the Nos dac DWC that was one of my first bits of advice a couple of weeks ago.

I was lucky enough to be able to audition my Bel canto against a heavily modded nos dac using 8 TDA1543's, against the Battery powered attraction dac (which is also nos), against a Benchmark Dac 1 (nasty in extremis).

The Attraction destroyed the competition ...

Its a beguiling performer, so very very MUSICAL, so much so that my bel canto is up on Ebay as we speak (low starting price,no reserve, get yourself a bargain! :) )

Perhaps the problem is that there is too much objective measurement in laboratories,Anachoic chambers etc done by over paid professionals and not enough subjective focused listening done in your own special place..and preferably listening with your heart as well as your ears.

Adios Friends

Since going over to battery which ive cunningly hidden behind a bookshelf Im Stunned by my systems sound quality... STUNNED!!!

100+ hours solid focused listening in 2 1/2 weeks....

A very detailed warm analogue sound, and... this is the best part... its like been 17 again with my old Acoustic Research Legend record player, Music like a drug... CD after CD after CD ;)

never background... that would be an insult.

This is due mainly to the DAC which is IMO a GIANT KILLER.

so to recap:

Quiet 400gb laptop>>>Foobar2000>>>Asio4all>>>HagUSB>>>VDH carbon hybrid digital and analogue ic'>>>Altmann Attraction DAC>>>PP 22W Valve Amp>>>QED Silver biwire>>>Wharfedale Pacific Evo 30's = Sonic Aural Paradise.
