Our thanks to Tim Connor of KitsuneHiFi, the official source for HoloAudio products in the USA, for supplying us with a demo unit for our meeting of their flagship, the Holo May KTE. The Holo May KTE is a 40 lb, 2-chassis DAC, using a unique true R2R topology that is capable of supporting up to DSD1024 native and PCM 1.536MHz output (through HQPlayer). Many prefer to simply use the true NOS mode. In-depth details of the Holo May KTE (and other versions) can be found here:
The main high-efficiency, tube SET system (one speaker shown in photo above) features Lowthers with circular horns, Edgarhorn 100Hz horns with Altec 515B-8G-HP drivers, a custom 0a1 tube preamp, a custom 46 tube amp, and 2 REL subs. Rick's system currently uses the Denafrips Terminator and the Denafrips Hermes D-D converter using I2S to connect to the DAC. We plan to use the Hermes/I2S with the Holo May KTE and will listen to both.
This is a unique opportunity to hear two of the most discussed DACs in recent times that are sold direct and rarely available to hear before purchase. Look forward to seeing you there for another great time at Rick's!
