  1. *Good stuff & excellent service = winning combo*

    Purchased a SU 1 and Intona from Tim/Kitsune.This is not a review of the units,tho they are a positive addition to my listening experience.This is more a comment on the great service that Tim provided.Right from my first enquiry to the last he was most helpful with in depth answers.Sure ,the end result is I did buy some stuff but I could have done so elsewhere.I even learned a few things along the way thanks to his taking the time to explain and point out the ups and downs of computer audio thru his own trial and error experiences.Kitsune stocks some good stuff, ships quickly and provides exemplary service.A winning combo in my book.If they have something of interest to you don’t hesitate to give Tim a shout.Thanks!

  2. I am incredibly pleased by the treatment I received from Tim and Holo Audio / KitsuneHiFi. I bought a Singxer SU-1 from Tim because his was the only American company I found that had one in stock. The unit was shipped right away, and arrived quickly. Both of those things were impressive, but his after sale support was even more so. The SU-1 arrived late on a Friday, and appeared initially not to work (ultimately due to some bad Audirvana options, and not the unit itself). I e-mailed, Tim called me right away, we stayed in touch throughout the weekend, and he even contacted Singxer tech support in China. The issue was resolved, and everything sounds great.

    Further, Tim recommended some Wireworld HDMI cables that RADICALLY improved the sound of my system (and the cables I replaced weren’t cheap). Tim is the rare combination of technically savvy and easy to deal with.

    I’ll definitely do business here again.

  3. its been about 10 days to 2 weeks and my conclusion is that the Spring Dac level 3 is the real deal. Ive been chasing digital for too many years to mention (About 25 lol). Anyway this dac has been a pleasant surprise. It sounds like Music. I am using the intona and singxer SU-I2S interface
    easy install with my Baetis server. Too many adjectives to describe get one you will be astounded
    not to mention the reasonable cost. I have owned Lampizator 4 level 4, AMR,MSB, Lenahan PDX,to name a few. The spring dac is as or more enjoyable than all the others!!!!

  4. Man… I was comparing it(even with just a couple hours warmup/burnin) to my Yggy(from what I remember of it’s sound presentation) and the first thing that REALLY jumped out at me is it’s holographic presentation. SO 3D! Each instrument nicely presented clearly and cleanly it’s distinct location in the headphone. Very out of head/live vibe to it. I am very excited for how everything is going to sound a week from now with a couple hundred hours of burnin under it’s belt

  5. Just received my Kitsune Holo Spring DAC level 3 a few days ago and I’m in the process of breaking it in with 16bits/24bits files(NOS) as well as internet radio. My experience with different showroom DAC is very limited and have never heard a R2R DAC before this. What I learned is that inexpensive delta sigma DAC may sound fantastic on first listen but become tiresome after awhile. The way your body’s nervous system response to music is the best barometer of a DAC performance. Yes, this R2R Holo Spring DAC has a relaxing calming affect at the same time sounding fast and extended at both ends. But be warned this DAC is no panacea for poor recording. Well recorded music on the other hand can sound simply amazing. At times, I notice the palms of my hands to involuntary begin to lightly perspire after listening to music with nice cymbal runs, much like one would expect after looking over a cliff. Two thumbs up.

  6. Hello Tim & Dawn,

    I received My Singxer SU-1 today and i already have it up and running in my system! I bought it so i can play music files from my P.C. ( i use JRiver ) Installing the drivers and disabled the signature thing with Win 10, all that was a snap and in just a few minutes I’m enjoying music! Nicely built and simple to use. Just wanted to let you know you have another happy customer! Sounds good too..I can finally use my “real” DAC. I was using a Dragonfly, but i wanted to use my Busman Modified Tascam DA3000. I am using the USB cable that came with the SU-1 and a Kimber D60 S/PDIF cable.

    Thanks everyone!
    Miguel…

  7. I bought a KTE Holo Spring Level 3. This dac is amazing! It is the best upgrade I have ever done to my chain.
    DSD sounds fantastic along with 44/16 Flac.

    Tim is a pleasure to work with and this dac is no joke, if you are on the bubble about getting this dac….Just Do It!
    You will not be sorry and you will be rewarded very well indeed.

    Tim, thank you for everything you have done, you have a real winner here with the KTE Holo Spring Level 3.
    I could not be happier as i listen to this thing every single day!

    Thanks again,
    Joe
