I`ve been playing for a few days now with Exa installed to my Buffalo II dac.
My first impression was ,,,WOW,,,,what`s going on here ?
My system: Pc : Fujitsu/Siemens- Windows 7
Dac: Buffalo II, with bal and se outputs, ( for sub )
Power amps: 2x McIntosh 275
Speakers: Silverline Lafolia II
Sub : Velodyne 18 DD
Cables : Oblivion Energetic ( from RayCtech )
Well, back to Exa and my listening impressions. It seems clear tha Exa is doing something very right. The only component in my system during the years who can be compared to Exa when it comes to improve the sound and musical satisfaction is, Buffalo II.
I`ve been very satisfield with my setup after Buffalo II arrived, and have been playing a lot of music, and not really miss something. What lead to Exa, was a visit to Leif Christensen, and his fantastic system. I was blown away by the realism and musical engagement from his system. Much of this can be related to Eca, according to Leif.
With The sound from Leif`s great system in mind, I decided to go for Exa too. I don`t regret a second, and can Warmly recomend this great product.
