Pros: Great sound, solid state ease
Cons: None yet
I love this DAC. I heard decur's Wavelength Cosecant at a meet and he was explaining to me the wonders of async DACs and I fell in love with it but could not afford one. My choice then became between the Wavelength brick and the Ayre QB-9(Which hadn't been released yet). I had high hopes for the QB-9 and it did not disappoint. Compared to tube amps it seems slightly fast and digital, but it's a great sound. I think the value is on par with Wavelength products so I would rate it better than the brick and worse than the cosecant.
