Thanks.
It you look its interior pictures it is all packed inside. Add to that chassis weight.

Most welcome, the chassis looks solid in the pics and the player is designed very neatly.
Assuming you must be using the balanced XLR connections which apparently makes an audible difference as compared to the unbalanced one.

At present I'm using XLR but will have to switch to RCA cables unfortunately.

Also my preamp has only a pair of XLR and RCA inputs each and I would prefer DAC's ouput to use that XLR input on preamp

Congratulations bro. Denafrips DACs are highly respected.

My Ares II has been delivered to a friend in Singapore and I guess I'll have to wait for at least 6 months for him to bring it back to
India. I really don't know when I'll get it. :mad:
Did you have to pay any duty ?
Please post your opinion in due course.

Latest addition to my bookshelf collection
Dynaudio Emit M20 .
Looking great man. Those Concept 20 look miniature. Will you be planning some kind of isolation or stands for these? I think Mayank had the stands part of the package, no?

Yup, stands were shipped seperately so expecting them to arrive today or tomorrow.

Yup the concept 20 literally look miniature now. I had satellite speakers before this so Concept 20s looked huge initially but now sizewise it feels so David vs the Emit m20 :)

On a sidenote looks like i am heading towards a collection with 20's , Concept 20/Emit m20/ 3020i :D

Got The Rontek Power conditioner, Aviron HTS one.
This is a 7.5kva one, There's a cheaper 2.5kva one as well. The 7.5 kva one has pre programmed delayed switching of outlets. It has 3 (bank1) + 3 (bank2) + 1 ( unfiltered) = 7 Universal Socket outputs at back. 6 Sockets are Linearly filtered, where as one is unfiltered. All Outputs have a 5 second delay in 'switching on' in sequence, starting from Bank 1 onwards. So You can put the power amplifier to the last socket, so its activated last in the sequence. Switch Off is exactly opposite so power amp is switched off first. Pretty Cool option.

No compromise in build quality whatsoever. Comes with a large Plug ( Similar to AC) and adapters won't work. The Thick 2m Power cable is fixed, but can be opted for detachable power cord on request, which they don't encourage technically.
1 unfiltered socket can be used for power amps, (if person doesn't want power conditioner for Power amp) pretty thoughtful. The Blue display shows required parameters like voltage, current etc. The green LEDs light in sequence in correspondence with the socket being switched on.
Have been using it over a month, pretty good in my experience, Reduces the noise floor and instrumental separation was augmented in my listening setup. Also the shoutiness and brightness reduced YMMV. I had issue with first Device, which started giving Ground Loop Alarm, I got it replaced under warranty. Really excellent service support, they confirmed it by pics on phone and arranged for pickup and delivery to Home. Pretty impressive during Covid19 Situation. Ultimately it's 23k (after discounts) well spent.

Quiet a few acquisitions for me in the last month.
i) Stands for my Emit M20. Thanks to @Mayank Shah
ii) Got myself a SVS SB2000 as my 8 inch subwoofer stopped working. Wanted to go for PB2000 but since it was a 13 by 11 room with a bed and other furniture decided against it
iii) Got a nice deal for a Elac FS 57.2 and CA 651 Azur amp so thought of trying out my first floorstanders and surprised how good they sound

How are those elacs when paired with Cambridge audio amp? I was talking with the same gentleman regarding these and was in a quandary whether to buy or not. You beat me to it !!

Elacs are paired with my Onkyo TX-SR444 in the living room. Mostly used by parents, on my occasional sessions I find them to have good imaging , instrument separation is good but not as prominent as Concept 20/ M20. The vocals and the lower end seem to be better than what I expected.

The CA Azur 651a seems to present the music with a wider soundstage than the pm6006 but the pm6006 beats it in the mids ( vocals seem more with emotions and texture with the pm6006). Lows quantity is more with the 651a but the pm6006 seems to present bass more tightly. Please note the rooms in which the observations have been made have different layouts.

Any idea if the adhesive damages the wall if you need to take the foam off later?
Ya it'll chip off the paint too.. i would recommend u to paste these foam panels on a cardboard or a cloth and then with the help of nails put it on the wall.. i guess it'll be much less messy that way.
