Audio magazine DAC testGuys, I find this thread a bit confusing: very opiniated. I'll kick in the test report from Audio magazine, that I found on the web. Seems a good starting point for an unbiased opinion, since the Germans seem no stakeholders in CA of MF for advertisement. The report also gives you an inside look into the V-DAC and some opportunity for training your skills in German. Viel Erfolg dabei! I'm Dutch BTW.
