Sweet!
...and Musikklink just happen to be located 3.5km (less than 2 miles) from where I live, without me being aware of them. Guess I will need to drop by one of these days.

I'm know another proud owner of a V6 DAC!!!

I would like to confirm a few things with you.

What is the highest resolution admissible via UBS? 48kHz / 24Bit?

What is the highest resolution admissible via SP/DIF (Toslink and/or RCA)? 192kHz / 24Bit?

Wich would be the best way you'd recommend to connect this DAC?

I can connect it via any of it's input.

It seems to me that using a 75Ohm digital coax cable would be the best way to avoid jitter.

By the way does anyone know if the V6 DAC does any kind of re-clocking to avoid jitter? Is is assyncronous?

Cheers,

Happy listenings.

Tiff

PS: I'm still on SE outputs... although I'll be switching to XLR soon. As anyone experienced what's been claimed? That SE vs XLR, SE sound Flat?

Hi there, i dont think you will get the best sound out of usb. I am using my abrahamsen with optical frommy macbook pro and that gets input via xlr to my pramp.
It sounds really good.
Greetings, Anouk,

Has somebody encountered the same problem with the v6 described in this post ? http://avforum.no/forum/generelt-audio-hifi/85253-abrahamsen-v6-dac-brukserfaring-test-8.html#post1460991

 

The dac is very intersting but this problem seems to be very weird...

Per Abrahamsen (Google translate):
It's discovered a "phenomenon" in connection with the selection of inputs on individual V6.0. The sound can sometimes be seen as "woolly and weird." By selecting a different input or switch the product and the problem disappears. After thorough research on the problem, it turns out that the problem lies in up-sampling circuit is provided by Crystal. This becomes unstable when the input changes. A search on the internet, it turns out that all other users of this circuit has the same problem.

To solve the problem for those customers who experience this, we have developed a new up-sampler / DAC card with the same sound but no problems.

In V6.0 is up-sampler / DAC card as a plug-in cards without soldering, which can easily be replaced by the user.

The card will be available from approx. 01.07.2010 and will be free.

Those who do not want to open and switch itself, will naturally be able to send V6.0 to us for the replay.

I have encountered the problem mentioned. I was one of the first who got this new card. And my impression is that the dac become even better. Word is out  about a 32 bit/192Khz  upgrade for the V6.0

post #192 of 204

Any more opinions on this DAC?

The price is very very appealing (499 included shipping to UK) and reviews on Norwegian web sites are quite good.

An email sent via the manufacturer website got a response that a new board was on the way - free. A few days later in turned up. The old board is on the left

Any more news on those 32-bit/192kHz rumors and their origin? I have the same DAC and can't recall any words on that upgrade on Norwegian AV-forums.

Since then Per Abrahamsen has started a new business called Abrahamsen, where the products surprisingly (or not) look a lot like the Electrocompaniet ones.
The Electrocompaniet ECD1 as a comparison:

Thanks for your instruction! Now I got it.
