Review:
MANO ULTRA Mk III with FARAD Super3 LPSU streamer vs. Bluesound NODE (N130) streamer:
I have for some weeks tested MANO ULTRA Mk III with FARAD Super3 LPSU streamer vs. Bluesound NODE (N130) streamer via I2S HDMI-LVDS output to my HoloAudio Spring 3 DAC (level 2). The MANO has lifted the soundstage 1-2 levels higher than the NODE.
The sound textures are quite awesome with good separations between instruments ec. when playing London Grammar – music number: Hey Now or Strong or playing Agnes Obel – music number: Aventine or The Curse. The tempo, melodic and harmonic in the instruments are combined very separated and very clear and open in the heights up and down in the sound specter and in the wideness too, compared to the soundstage of the NODE. There are not huge differences, but it is very easy to hear the differences, wen switching between the 2 streamers playing the same music piece.
The MANO Ultra III/ FARAD is worth every penny and even more.

I have owned a SINGXER - DAC - SDA 6 PRO for 3 months and after 20 hours of warm up, it played great. and this piece of gear has been a tremendous change on my system . After that, I have to raise the level of the vinyl player (buying a new one) in order to somehow catch up with the level of sound that SINGXER produces. And I don't see it as a problem. Congratulations to the MAGNA HiFi team.
Excellent service. High level of product knowledge, good communication, fast shipping, perfect package protection and top tracking information

Audio-GD - Master 19 Solid State Discrete Balanced Preamplifier True balanced discrete... View

My system is improved by adding the Master 19 preamp between the Audio-gd DAC r2r7 and my new poweramp. The poweramp sounded already good directly connected to the DAC but the Master 19 improves the soundstage and bottom end very much. With some recordings I'm hearing things that I never heard before, including very expensive setups at audio shows.
At the same time I have aquired one of the best headphone amps in this price range. Thanks Jos and Rob: I'm keeping this one!

I was cautious at first as i was buying from outside the uk. I contacted magna hifi many times with questions on how paying the vat and shipping the item would be done. Jos always answered my questions very quickly and was very helpful. Delivery was a very easy process and the item was packaged very well. It is refreshing to do business with a company that takes pride in what they do!

I've been wanting a Holo Audio May dac for a few years now. This time it worked. My regular point of contact at Magna first sold my dac quickly and for a fair price. Because there was some delivery time on the Holo, I got a loan dac available. The ordered Holo May kt still arrived surprisingly quickly. It is now really enjoyable, partly due to the very pleasant service of Magna Hifi. Basically like I've always been used to. Really a very nice company. So recommended again!!

I'm very happy with my purchase, a HoloAudio – Spring 3 DAC KTE Kitsune (R2R – DSD1024). The DAC sounds just great and is very well built. The delivery also went smoothly and as planned. Magna Hifi personnel were very quick and helpful in responding to all of my questions. Their service is excellent. I will surely buy gear again from them. (Trustpilot review)

Super DAC - I'm really happy so far!

The DAC can very well convert 48k integer rates into DSD (e.g. 3.07MHz with DSD64).
It says so in the documentation for the AK4499 and also makes the SDA-6 perfect.
Excellent!

AUDIO-GD DI-20 USB digital audio interface based on Amanero USB design is... View

Hello, i owned the DI20 for a year now and this piece of gear has been a tremendous change on my system which is not a HiFi system at the origin. I am making mastering for music production so the chain i own is very special, my monitors are ME GEITHAIN RL 901 K (https://sonicpurity.com.au/blog/2017/9/27/me-geithain-active-speakers) and my DAC is a MADA , AD-DA (from Fred FORSELL TECHNOLOGIES) one due its job in the studio. I just have a volume controler from him too and that 's it to listen music. I am on TIDAL .
The DI20 has opened the sound in many ways, the treebles are crystal clear and the bass goes deeper, but the most significant is that it's now tri-dimentionnal instead of being stereo !!! the sound is out of the speakers ! so this is really a beautiful DI to add to any system that need a new one or for somebody who is searching to get one ! Thn'x to Magnat Hifi !

May Dac = 'The possibility of.' The May DAC is here! over... View

A la recherche d’un dac qui puisse remplacer mon Ayon Skylla2 (R2R PCM1704K) avec plus de neutralité et de résolution mais sans perdre les qualités tonales du R2R, l’âme de la musique, et tout en rivalisant avec mon principal dac le Mola Mola Tambaqui, le May est un choix que je ne regretterai pas.

Une partie numérique au dessus de tout soupçon, des étages de conversion R2R Nos compatible tous formats avec une partie DSD dédiée réussie, un étage de sortie à l’évidence bien pensé et réalisé qui donne toutes ses lettres de noblesses à la restitution sonore et creuse l’écart avec la concurrence utilisant des AOP lissant et réfrigérant la restitution, subtile positionnement fait de neutralité et beauté, crédibilité sans aspect analytique comme beaucoup de dacs à puces Delta Sigma dont les filtres ne sont pas débrayables, et sans en faire trop et verser dans des colorations éloignant de la réalité. Le May analyse finement en donnant le liant, la continuité naturelle entre les sons qui fait que l’on écoute de la musique et non du son, et avec son étage de sortie il le fait sans froideur, en sachant impliquer l’auditeur.

Que demander de plus?…. Une intégration de la lecture réseau qui soit aussi réussie que les entrées USB et I2S du May serait un plus pour s’asseoir sur la concurrence en terme de versatilité. Le May n’est pas donné si l’on considère son circuit de vente, la nécessité d’acquérir un bon lecteur réseau et cablage de liaison pour l’accompagner face à ses concurrents , mais il sait justifier son positionnement par de vrais arguments techniques et sonores donc recommandé sans réserve aux amoureux de la musique qui fuient les colorations mais fuient la désincarnation et la froideur également.

Excellent support de Magna Hifi dans la démarche d’acquisition, toujours une réponse rapide de Jos aux questions posées avant et après la vente.

May Dac = 'The possibility of.' The May DAC is here! over... View

All my pre-purchase questions were answered very quickly and comprehensively by Magnahifi. I ordered on Friday and the device arrived already on the following Tuesday. The sound is stunning! So far I have used a DAC for about 7000 EUR. I'm sorry to say that it sounds like a toy against the Holo May. The sound of the May is in-describable, simply divine. It was my best purchase during the last 20 years!

Master 3A is a pure Class A power amplifier. Designed without any... View

After testing Pathos, Classe, Jef Rowland, etc I must say that Audio GD 3A is astonishing for the price, any price actually. Tigh, extend and full bass, very transparent midrange (enfase to voices , cords, piano and blow instruments) and suficientlly airy and resolving top end (a bit harsh at first but after a few days of burn in it]s all gone). Layering and insttruments separation is very good. Soundstage is 3D, texture and expansive, but coherent.
Very low distortion at high volumes and full boby in low ones.
My sistem is base on Michi P5 and S5 pre and power amplifier, respectly. Rigth now I subjectively perfer the carater of the Audio GD 3A Power Amp. What a dilema! This tell a lot!
Many thks for the fellows at Magna HiFi. Cheers!
