Wow! Comparing to the V1? You know the Ud-501 can be found new for $750. They are also releasing the UD-301 for close to or under $500. It's suppose to offer the sound of the 501 but without the screen and lower quality chassis.
Well two dealers I've worked with my area (one sells Dynaudio equipment and other, NAIM) have both recommended as the best/only DAC alternative they offer under like the $2K or more price point. The next thing is either Ayer or NAIM for much more.
Has anyone here owned the Gungnir with Gen2 USB and done extensive comparisons with the Yulong DA-8?
Can anyone comment on the upgrade given the modest $350 price difference?
(Note: DSD is not that important to me.)
I am looking for a stand-alone DAC that will act as a transport between an HTPC source and an integrated amp.
