REFERENCE SYSTEM 1



By "Reference system", we mean a system used as a reference point or comparison point. It does not change from a listening session to another, and is perfectly known (by us). We use such a system to evaluate the devices we review on this site. We do not mean at all that it is the best system in the world...

Here is the description of the Reference system #1 used for the listening sessions and reviews. It is installed in a large and dedicated room, its size is 83m2 (an acoustic treatement is planned in the future):
  • Drive COUNTERPOINT DA-11, direct BNC output
  • Digital cable KIMBER illuminati D-60 with BNC connectors
  • DAC COUNTERPOINT DA-10 new version 24 bits / 192 kHz, upgraded by Mike ELLIOTT in 2006 (recently upgraded with 2 PLITRON transformers, dedicated CANARE BNC & RCA 75 ohms for the imputs, and AUDIONOTE silver for the output)
