Sounds very nice Jeff. Really hope the katalyzed Akurate exaktboxes will arrive sooner than later...

Yes, hopefully they'll come out soon. It's quite a bit better. Jeff

While my units are not entirely burnt in, I can offer this... the upgrade is - very - worthwhile. I'm primarily a vinyl guy and that's always my go to reference. For the last week, I've been steaming exclusively from my NAS. Digital with Katalyst is far more organic. There's more detail, yes, but in the end, the digital I'm streaming is coming closer to my KLP12. My overall impression is that Katalyst digital is approaching the more refined analog realm; it sounds more lifelike and real. I'll listen to some vinyl this weekend as well and report on the improvement. Jeff

Hi Jeff

Any thoughts on vinyl via your Katadoriks? I agree that digital is rendered more organic by Katalyst (for me via Katabariks), but IMO vinyl still has the edge.

RE: Akudorik and Akubarik Exakt with Katalyst!
My sound preference is vinyl. I’ve been able to spin a few LPs after the Katalyst upgrade. Yes, I believe it’s better. I hear better positioning of the instruments and a little more detail. That said, the larger improvement comes with streaming straight digital. The LP 12 is definitely better, but my rips have never sounded this good. Jeff
