    Excellent find and write up James. I know what you mean with the 'processing', I put that down to the DeltaSigma conversion unfortunately which is par for the course.
    However the price/performance now is astounding, as you allude to.
    I love Hendrix for so many reasons. He was so much more than just a blues guitarist - he played damn well any kind of guitar he wanted. In fact I'm not sure if he even played the guitar - he played music. - Stevie Ray Vaughan

    Cheers Alan I am glad I am not the only one who hears this.

    We are living it great times when you can buy products that have excellent price/performance.

    I could be tempted to bring my Soekris R2R DAC.

    Would take the DeltaSigma out the equation.

    I have had a Soekris in the system thanks Gary. Also had a few Chord DACs (FPGA). My last DAC had Burr brown chips and I have had Sabre DACs, they all sounded digital unfortunately, that's just the nature of the beast. Maybe R2Rs have a magic sauce?

    No matter which way you slice and dice it digital has so far always had a slightly processed sound in my experience. Sounds great otherwise.

    Pretty much like all vinyl sounds like vinyl.

    Never got on with Sabre based Dacs, all sounded too ‘etched’ for my taste.

    I have heard examples I think of most of the chips out there and I agree the Sabre can be a bit aggressive. Problem with all DACs is that whatever chip they use it all comes down to the implementation in the finished product. PSU and analogue output can completely change the sound.
