REGA DAC

Post by momolo »

Deoarece e un subiect foarte interesant si pentru ca forumul a suferit niste.... probleme (iar acum vad ca merge aproape normal), deschid acest subiect dedicat noului DAC (low price) scos de brandul REGA si care a produs multa senzatie si multe comentarii pozitive.

Ia uitati aici, chiar acum putin timp in USA la expo high-end Rocky Mountain:

The speakers were powered by Rega's new Brio-R integrated amplifier ($895) (left). Rega's new DAC ($995) (right) was playing music from an Apple Mac Mini (not shown), as well as from its Apollo CD player ($995) (below).

Daca tot am dacul Rega am sa scriu si eu cite ceva chiar daca o sa ma repet.
O sa pun un articol care atunci cind l-am citit am ramas foarte uimit.

aici ;
Sur PC, en USB, le Rega sonne très musical et plus chaud que le Ayre QB-9 et le DCS Debussy. Avec l'interface Diverter et le Rega, pour la première fois, la musique venant de l'ordinateur sonne comme de la musique. En retournant au DCS, la magie avait disparu.
Le SACD sur le Ayre 5xeMP est moins bon que la piste CD rippée et le DAC Rega !
Même l'entrée SPIF du DCS Debussy est inférieure à celle du Rega.
Sur le disque de Herbie Hancock, face à l'ensemble CEC TL-0 et DAC Audio Note 4.1x (32.000€…), j'ai préféré l'équilibre légèrement plus chaud du Rega, musicalement plus engageant.
Eu am comparat dacul Rega cu dacul Arcam ,Cambrige , cd playerul Unison Unico CD si niste playere vitange si placi de sunet (placile chiar nu are rost sa le mai amintesc), dacul Rega a fost mai bun decit toate. La 600 euro cit am dat pe el chiar nu am ce sa ii reprosez, absolut nimic.
Daca il gasiti pe undeva si il puteti testa chiar va recomand sa il testati , o sa fiti uimiti ce poate face o cutiuta de numai 600 euro noua. :D
Oricum vad ca dacul alaturi de PC este sursa suprema in multe sisteme de top.
Pe 9 si 10 octombrie aici la Bruxelles a fost New Music Belgium Hifi Show si peste 50% din surse au fost dacuri cu PC.

- depinde cum privesti lucrurile. Eu cred ca e mai degraba o problema de adaptare..... a noastra la niste realitati incontestabile din jur, din societate.
Avem cam doua alternative, sa murim de inima rea tot jeluind sau sa ne impacam cu realitatea inconjuratoare si sa ne adaptam atat cat se poate. Nu e pentru perfectionisti (acestia sucomba iremediabil de inima rea); adaptarea nu va fi niciodata perfecta insa, inca o data subliniez, e o chestiune de optica personala, ori vedem jumatatea goala a paharului, ori pe cea plina, ori ne retragem intr-un colt si ne plangem de mila, ori mergem la soare si ne bucuram de atata cat inca (mai) avem.

Si sti bine ca sunt colectionar de vechituri inutile in ziua de azi (de exemplu casetofoane si magnetofoane). Sti bine ca am combatut si eu fenomenul. Si amandoi stim bine ca fenomenul asta e oarecum moartea muzicii la ora asta (chiar si din ratiuni economice) insa never said never, niciodata nu putem spune ca le-am vazut si auzit pe toate. Inca mai e timp pentru "descoperiri". E o greseala sa nu-ti pastrezi mintea deschisa.

Si cind zic Dac cu PC ,acest PC e un stiftulet de laptop dinala micut iar dacul este pe usb. Nu e macar un calculator sanatos cu o placa de sunet de doamne ajuta.
Eu acum pe aici pe piata vad doua surse supreme Dac si Vinyl. Cd playerul e folosit poate ca transport citodata dar e cam pe duca saracul.

Eu zic ca nu e trist de loc... in orice domeniu exista stifturi si produse de calitate. trecerea "turmei" pe muzica sub forma de fisier informatic nu poate decat se multiplice solutiile "hardware" deci sa traga, inevitabil, calitatea in sus (si in jos...)

Nici nu trebuie sa fiu vizionar sau scenarist SF pentru a-mi da seama incotro se indreapta auditia muzicala in momentul asta.
Se merge cu viteza sunetului :mrgreen: catre I"ceva"(cu DAC inclus) conectat la I-Tunes (mp3 rulez) si auditia se va face pe casti "in ear" sau, in cazuri fericite pe niste boxulite cat o cutie de chibrituri - si voila de vezi audiofiloxera.

Partea proasta este ca generatia tanara chiar este convinsa ca muzica ascultata asa este "betooooon, frate" :evil:

Dupa cum se stie, deja download-ul de muzica a intrecut la vanzari CD-ul (caruia i se canta prohodul cam des in ultima vreme), asa ca eu zic sa nu ne mai miram.

Nu pot uita figura unui tanar de 20 de ani care a vazut la mine pentru prima oara in viata lui un pick-up (si magnetofon) - uluirea lui era totala, ma intreba unde este hardul bagat :cry:

Am mai gasit inca ceva comparatii pentru Rega Dac. Incredibil la ce nivel e clasat un dac de 600 euro :D

Let me jump ahead of myself and tell you that based purely on sonics, Rega’s design team knows exactly what they’re doing, and if this DAC has the specifications you need, you’ll be very happy with the performance, as you would expect from Rega’s excellent reputation. I was very hard pressed to differentiate the performance of this DAC fed by the excellent Meridian G08 CD player from the stellar analog output of the G08 itself. The G08.2, today’s equivalent, retails for over $5000 in Canada. Yes the Meridian does throw a bigger soundstage, has slightly more definition in the bass and detail in the treble and is more coherent when there are a lot of different things going on, but the Rega is close on all counts, as if the Meridian had been the reference Rega’s designers set out to match. When listening to vocals it was a bit of a mixed bag. Sometimes the Rega pulled ahead, as it did with Joan Baez in Diamonds and Rust, where the Meridian sounded more etched and ultimately less realistic than the Rega. But the Meridian turned the tables on The Northwest Passage where Stan Rogers was less chesty and Garnet Rogers, David Alan Eadie and Chris Crilley were better located and differentiated in tone.
So if the Rega DAC is nipping on the Meridian’s heels, where does that place it on an absolute level? Well, streets ahead of almost all comers in the sub $3000 CD player market and also in comparison to other DACs in the $750 to $1200 range. It throws big images, away from the physical dimensions of the speakers, and it has a warm and yet very dynamic sound, with bold leading edges and delicate patterns of musical decay. Distortion is never a factor, while the level of detail is quite high. Above all it passes the smell test of being fully musical. No digititis here. It is only when you compare it with far more expensive components such as the Chord QBD76 DAC ($6495 US) or the EMM Labs DAC2 ($9500 US) that its limitations become apparent. These devices reveal much greater depth in the soundstage, greater precision in locating voices and instruments, more accurate instrumental tone, subterranean bass and open treble, and effortless dynamics. When you put all these things together you get a much more relaxing yet immersive experience, more like the real thing. But not only are such components much more expensive, they will require partnering equipment of equivalent sonic performance in order to strut their stuff effectively. Unless you are into megabuck systems, the Rega DAC will do very nicely thank you.

Eu ti-as zice sa uiti de rega...exista alte DACuri de o mie de ori mai bune decit acesta. De ex am ascultat acum ceva vreme un DAC de la dCS ( tot comboul de 4 module ) modelul Scarlatti.
Vreau sa iti spun ca nu exista sursa mai buna pe digital decit asta. Pur si simplu suna demential.
Best of the best !

Eu te cred ca exista dacuri mult mai bune dar la ce preturi?
Aceasta mica cutiuta e doar 600 euro noua.
Nu pot sa uit de ea deoarece o ascult in fiecare zi si nu imi vine a crede ce bine se aude acum muzica.
Initial am crezut si eu ca e mare vrajeala pe net despre acest dac dar cumparindu-l si ascultindu-l zi de zi sincer nu mai cred ca e vrajeala.
Tehnologia avanseaza si nu trebuie sa ne lasam prostiti de o scula chiar daca ea costa 100k euro, trebuie ascultat ,testat , comparat si apoi trasa concluzia.

Eu am tras concluzia deja. In domeniul digitalului DCSul este REGE absolut.
Au cele mai mari inventii in domeniu...defapt ei au inceput prin anii '80 sa produca scule profesionale pt. studiouri iar mai apoi s-au reprofilat pe productia de home use.
Oricum te felicit pe aceasta cale pt achizitie si iti urez auditii placute.
