Want to relate an interesting experience I am having. I know that
the buzz word now for audiophiles is HiRez. Well yesterday I received a
dac which does the following
It's main chip is an Analog Devices 1865n
This is an 18 bit chip that does no up or oversampling and also
does no digital or analog filtering.
The dac also has no jitter reducing technology
It does have a tube analog output with tube rectification
It also only has a coax input although you can add a USB input
It only plays redbook although the input will handle 24/96
Bottom line, this is the best digital I have ever heard and it
isn't even broken in. By the way this company just announced a
of the line dac which is in 4 boxes and retails for $220,000. The one I have is
$1795. If you want to here this please contact me .
