The bluesound update has a better separation and more musical
Updated: Apr 12
My system is composed of various equipments designed trough various countries: Bryston amplifier (Canada), YBA pre amplifier and CD players(France), Proac speakers (UK) all having separated linear power supplies.
My streamer, I currently have the Bluesound node, I like a lot, (latest version)(Canada) and an external Dac (PS Audio first generation)(USA) since the external Dac is not decoding Tidal MQA selection I wanted to improve my sound quality. The bluesound was the weak point when I compared sound with my CD player YBA top model or turntable Project .
By upgrading the switching card from the original bluesound Node for the kit setup composed of a regulation card of 32 capacitors and the external linear power supply from LHY audio, We all were able to identify a better musicality and mostly be able to listen to the MQA from the internal DAC of the bluesound.
The bluesound update has a better separation and more musical. I don't know which external DAC with ( MQA) capacity would be worth upgrading at this time very happy without the external Dac?
