Munich HIGHEND 2023

Totaldac était au salon de Munich dans une salle de 74m2.

Le système était composé uniquement d'élements Totaldac sauf des câbles:
-d1-switch
-d1-player music server
-d1-streamer-sublime as RoonReady endpoint
-d1-digital-sublime reclocker
-d1-sublime DAC
-UP12 AES-EBU cables
-d1-driver-mk2 preamp monoblocs
-Amp-1-mk2 amplifier monoblocs used in unbalanced mode
-d100%wood speakers with super-tweeter option
-sub-d100 subwoofer controlled by an Amp-1-mk2 monobloc
-Echole Infinity interconnects, speaker cables and power cords

"Augmented by Brient's solid state amplification and D100 speakers with optional super tweeters and subs, the D1-Sublime made a Qobuz stream of Leonard Cohen's "Show Me the Place" as natural as I've heard it, with thoroughly believable textures, ultrahigh resolution, and terrific portrayal of rhythm and pace." Alex Halberstadt, Stereophile

"On listening, we were confronted with a mature, complete, organic and extremely detailed performance. It is a high-efficiency system with a sub that can range over all musical geniuses with authority and control up to live concert levels. It is noteworthy and one of the very few cases in my memory where the subwoofer improved the overall performance without giving the feeling of something added afterwards, a perception of emissive uniformity that made everything even more credible." GIONA ORLANDI, Quotidianoaudio

recording of Totaldac room in Munich 2022


Totaldac in Munich High End 2022

"...incredibly open and full-range in every respect. Wild, even. Vincent was leaning heavily on classic rock recordings and soon it became apparent that Totaldac gear can party hard, yet in an extremely refined way. The room was big, but the Totaldac in Munich was even bigger in pure visceral impact than I could have imagined back at home. What I remember most about Totaldac in Munich was the system's tremendous sense of space, as well as pure and unbridled dynamics in a fairly large listening room." Part time audiophile
"The larger room was perfect for this system, the real synergy in a "nose to tail" system all designed and made by one brand was apparent... I think the world is ready to realise that Totaldac do so much more than just DACs!" Hifi Pig

Démonstration dans un yacht à Paris en octobre 2021 pour la sortie des enceintes d100-chestnut:
(la prochaine session du Totaldac Fun Day aura lieu sur le même yacht le samedi 17 septembre 2022)
"never have we experienced something quite as good as the Totaldac d100 loudspeaker launch.
...it sounded sublime. It was a very ‘live’ sound, dynamic and energetic but also very engaging and pure, perfect to relax and enjoy.
David Solomon of Qobuz came with us and thought that someone was playing the piano live when we walked onto the boat."
Hifi Pig

"La liberté d’expression des Totaldac est saisissante: lisibilité et transparence sans coloration, aisance dynamique, comme branchés en direct sur la musique live." Haute Fidélité

Totaldac Munich Hifideluxe 2019

Une source Totaldac était aussi en démonstration dans 2 autres salles du salon Hifideluxe: Camerton / Holton utilisant un d1-streamer + d1-direct + d1-driver et Askja audio.

Un DAC d1-seven et un GIGAFILTER USB étaient aussi utilisés par Focal JMLAB sur leur système casque le plus haut de gamme.

"The R-2R totaldac is the least DAC-sounding of any DAC I’ve heard. When it plays recordings is does not sound digital or analogue.
Instead, it conveys this slightly dark, deep, super-quiet transparent spaciousness that I find riveting – and very natural.
Tone was the most life-like I have heard from Magico."
Herb Reichert, Stereophile
"Totaldac and Magico were producing holographic images and musical realism.
Love the M6 Magicos!"
Peter Breuninger, AVShowroom
"The Holton TotalDac room featuring the Camerton-audio Binom 1 loudspeaker had stunning detail and clarity
with outstanding impact from such a small loudspeaker."
Peter Breuninger, AVShowroom
"Askia Audio (embedding a Totaldac DAC) from France had very unique looking loudspeakers and electronics.
The sound was fast and detailed with lots of space and pace."
Peter Breuninger, AVShowroom
"it sounded very good indeed." Linette Smith, HifiPig
"it sounded really great as well! Transparent and uncolored, airy and unfatiguing this was a sound that you could listen to for hours." CHRISTIAAN PUNTER, Owner of Hifi-Advice.com
"It's really not exactly easy to drive the Magico M6 speakers, but the Amp-1 amplifier was designed from the ground up with the M6's and it shows on the very first note strike. Certainly a system you don't want to miss." monoandstereo.com
"Camerton Audio Binom-1 somehow reflect an aura of acoustical instruments. Very stylish and captivating!" monoandstereo.com
"Sur un passage d'orgue, la puissance est impressionnante dans l'extrême grave, sans aucune confusion, d'une netteté alliée à un délié rare, en plus d'une capacité dynamique à l'énergie sans limite, comme sur le French Cancan endiablé. Surtout l'Amp-1 alliée au sources Totaldac sait mettre en valeur la finesse et la définition des Magico M6, en apportant plus de matière sans rajouter de surbrillance dans l'aigu qui reste d'une variété incroyable, sans raideur comme parfois avec certaines électroniques à transistor puissantes." Haute Fidélité

Totaldac était au RMAF 2018:
"The ones and zeroes were being calculated with both precision and emotion by a totaldac d1 tube MKII. Overall, one of the best, most enjoyable rooms at RMAF and a standout memory for me from the show." Rafe Arnott, Audiostreams

Totaldac était aux salons hifi de Munich 2018 dans plusieurs salles:

-une salle de 45m2 au salon HIGH END au MOC, Hall 4, salle W04, avec en écoute:
Totaldac RoonReady d1-server and reclocker
Totaldac d1-player server/NAS for Roon or for UPNP/DLNA
Totaldac d1-twelve DAC
Totaldac d1-driver, a volume-free preamp
Totaldac/Bibacord AES-EBU cables
Totaldac USB GIGAFILTER and ethernet cable/filters
Totaldac d150 speakers and their subwoofers
Absolare 845 push pull monoblocs with Elrog tubes
Echole Limited Edition interconnect cables, speaker cables and power cords
Totaldac Munich High End 2018
"I was impressed by both of them. The d150's sound was relaxed very wide open and delightfully coherent.
I was immediately impressed by how smooth, vivid, and 3-dimensional the sound was.
Think big, full, open, and exceptionally coherent. I would have nominated Brient's system for best sound at show, but is was only the morning of my first day, so I moved on."
Herb Reichert, Stereophile

"TotalDAC had secured one of the few ground-floor super cabins to make very good sound with Absolare monos.
On flavour, the Analog Domain designer's private system had been very visceral and gripping.
Vincent Brient's transplanted from France for the occasion was ultra spacious and elegant.
Anyone who declares an absolute sound hasn't yet lived long enough. There are many lenses of perspectives or moods to experience playback through.
Premium executions of these are all equally valid. This was one of those."
Srajan Ebaen, 6moons
"The outcome was impressive to say the least" Dawid Grzyb, HifiKnights
"This was a great sounding system. We will be visiting Vincent shortly for a full and proper demonstration of this system." HifiPig
"I've had limited time at the show, but enjoyed very involving combo. Way to go and present system." Matej Isak, Mono&Stereo
"His DAC remains the most melodic." AUDIOHUB.GR

-Absolare room, on Rockport speakers.
Totaldac Absolare Munich 2018
"Best Sound (cost no object). There was a complete lack of grain and glare;
the presentation had utterly natural timbre and tremendous ability to pull me into the music rather than to think about the sound.
A terrific system expertly set up."
Robert Harley, the absolute sound
"listed in "MY FAVORITE SYSTEMS"" Ron Resnick, MONO&STEREO
"Possibly best in show." hifiwigwam

-une salle avec: Totaldac GIGAFILTER + reclocker + d1-seven, ampli Holton Audio, câbles TelluriumQ et enceintes Soulsonic HOLOGRAMM-X.
Totaldac Munich HifiDeluxe 2018
"it played phenomenally, that is, full of concert swinging sound." Soundrebels.com
"The sound in this room was something else displaying effortless power and a concert hall-like experience." Hifipig

-la salle Focal, avec un DAC d1-seven + GIGAFILTER USB sur casque Utopia.


Totaldac était au salon de Munich 2017:
-Totaldac d1-server + d1-twelve-SE
-ampli Absolare Integrated
-cables Totaldac, Echole et Bibacord
-enceintes d150 + subwoofers
-Un d1-integral-headphone drivant un casque Focal Utopia.

Une source Totaldac était aussi utilisée dans les 4 autres salles suivantes:
-Absolare amplifiers and Echole cables, demoing Totaldac d1-server + d1-twelve-SE
-Engstrom&Engstrom amplifiers and Bibacord cables, demoing Totaldac d1-server + d1-twelve-SE
-VinylSavor amplifiers from Thomas Mayer, demoing Totaldac d1-server + d1-core
-Voxativ

"The totaldac sound, in my experience, is one of delivering the musical event as it was originally recorded, and here in Munich it seemed that musical event was taking place in the room with me – no small feat in any sense – and considering it was a ballroom-sized space it made the accomplishment all the more impressive. Brient has a loudspeaker design that when paired with his bespoke DAC/streamer/Server sources, and an uncoloured amplifier is capable of utterly transporting the listener to the moment the track was recorded." Rafe Arnott, part-time audiophile.com

Amongs the best rooms according to Absolute sound, 3 used a Totaldac DAC as digital source: Absolare/Rockport, Voxativ and Engstroem/Marten. the absolute sound
