Would you say that amp and a FrankenZero would be the best bang for buck DAC/Amp combo under $500?
The FrankenZERO scales very very well....as I continue to add better quality amps and preamps (post Frankie) the improvements continue to astound . I have no idea where this improvement ends.
Sennsay and Pench can concur with this observation. With every (dedicated) amp upgrade the sound quality continues to improve and refine....seems to me the better gear you surround the Frankie with the better the end result. FWIW since I'm bound to say that (I would call a spade a spade though, those that know me would agree).
Merry XMAS to all
