Marcin, what was it about the APL that captured your soul? What other DACs have you tried over the course of your digital journey?
I've tried in my system: Totaldac d1-dual, Totaldac d1-twelve, Auralic Vega, Waversa DAC3, Metrum Octave, dCS Debussy, dCS Rossini, Audio Note 4, Lampizator Big 7. APL sounds the most natural to my ears offering the sound that is both detailed and musical.
There are still some DACs I'd like to hear, but I'm happy with APL.
