    Well I ordered the ps audio digilink 3. I talked with the people from audio adviser and they got me free shipping and also said themselves that the ps audio piece is much better than than the cambridge audio dacmagic and the music hall 25.2, I should receive mine in about 2 weeks since the unit is on back order but I will make sure to post after installing the unit.

    yeah I can't wait to put my hands on it and test drive it with my favorite cds. I know I will be doing the same thing I did when I first modified my speakers, going through my whole music collection and listening to what I have missed before when I did not have a dac that good. But I will be sure to let you guys know and probably the whole world know how good the digilink is when I get it.

    MHDT havana has arrived.

    My fronts are Paradigm Signature S4, Signature C3
    Amp B&K 7270 7 X 200
    preamp B&K ref 30
    My cd player being the Technics SL MC 7.

    First Impressions:

    Highs are smoother, Bass is fully extended. Sound stage covers bigger area.
    Depths got increased.

    Now I see the need for a dac when you want to run High powered speakers and Amps.

    Listening fatigue is gone. I used to have trouble with some of the songs which had prominent treble for which my signatures were quite edgy, sharp. That has been rolled off. Now I can listen to all the songs without any fatigue.

    Soundstage: Between the two speakers, I used to feel that the sound stage was kind of narrow, After the DAC insertion, Fronts dissappear, sound seems to come from wider area.


    Depth has also increased significantly.

    I expect the dac to still smooth out during the first 50 hours of playing.

    I will put back my impressions in the next edition.

    Thanks
    Pandu

    yeah I can't wait until my digilink 3 gets hear. I think with this unit in my system I will be on the road to completing the front end of my system to get the most out of it in its present state. Then I will move on to possibly more upgrades and also finishing my turntable project I have seemed to put off as of late. But I have much more music on cd and my pc than on vinyl right now so I figured the ps audio unit would serve me better at this time. But I am still planning on entering back into the vinyl world again at some point in the near future. Glad to hear that your paradigms are smoothed out, would love to hear our signature s4's, thats one of paradigms speakers I have yet to hear. Are they the new versions with the berylium tweeter or the first gen versions?
