Bel Canto Design Aida D/A processor Review System
Preamplifiers included the Jadis JP-80MC, the Air Tight ATC-2, and the Sonic Frontiers SFL-2 Signature. CD transports were the Micromega Trio CD2, California Audio Labs' Delta, and the Accuphase DP-90. After experimenting with several 75 ohm digital interconnects, I settled on Mapleshade Electronics' Omega Mikro-D and Acrotec's D5010 datalinks as offering the most synergistic sonic match. Reference D/A processors included the Sonic Frontiers SFD-2, Theta's DS Pro Gen.III, CAL's Alpha processor, the original PS Audio UltraLink, and the Accuphase DC-91.
