    Thanks Gareth, much clearer now.

    One other question, there seems to be a lot of discussion around power supplies for the DAC. I like the look of the MCRU unit, is that my best option or is that subject to a lot of conjecture?

    2. Stan do you sell them?
    3. Why does the Beresford site, or any other site, not have prices on it?
    4. Is it likely to sound better in my HiFi than my Chord Mojo?

    Cheers

    1. See homehifi.co.uk and select sales. The site is a bit flaky. It works properly in Chrome but not in Opera. Currently the only DAC for sale is the SEG (199.99).
    2. Yes Stanley Beresford sells them. Customer service is great.
    3. See point 1.
    4. No idea, as I have not tried a Chord Mojo. Stan sells the SEG on a sale/return basis so give on a try if you are interested.

    Good luck!
    Regards

    Hello Stanley,

    (I'm not sure if you are receiving my PMs...)

    May I ask you if the Caiman SEG has discrete or OPAM output?

    Thanks,
    Luis

    edit: I mean the DAC itself. I believe if used has a preamp it is discrete.

    The SEG pre-amp is made up of discrete transistors.
