The Digione is just fabulous. I really believe that it will never be the weakest link in a system. A resolving system really lets the Digione shine.
My power cable shorted out on the Teddy Pardo, so I had to go back to iFi power supply for two weeks. My wife was constantly telling me there is some magic gone. Finially, I got the replacement cable and using the Teddy Pardo again, and man what a noticeable difference. As my wife says, the magic was back, warmth, texture and increase weight in the low end. Just fabulous.
When I first compared the different power supplies there was a positive difference but not so noticeable as now. Not sure if is that we were not listening for the differences, or if the Teddy Pardo needed time to break in. But in any case, the change is as dramatic as going from a crappy new production tube to one of the finest NOS tubes.
People here have questioned the use of a power supply that is 3 to 4 times the cost of the Digione, but for me, the Digione, with a good LPS, and a good SPDIF cable is one of the best deals in audio.
On that note, with my Bryston BDP-1/2 I noticed minor differences in SPDIF cables. With the Digione, the differences are so discernible.
I think however, that the differences with these things depend on rest of your system and how resolving or transparent it is. Resolution and transparency is a double edged sword. But it’s nice to know the Digione is far more capable then most systems need.
Thanks again ALLO for such a great product.
