Has anyone had the chance to compare Matrix to the Little Dot Dac 1 purely from a DAC point of view (LDot has no headamp)?
I'm looking for an affordable balanced out DAC and these two are the prime candidates in my price league! Both seem really nice.
Thanks for the comments! The versatility is very nice.
I see you also have a MF V-DAC Since V-DAC is considered "warm" sounding would you say that Matrix or DAC_I are a bit/a lot brighter/dryer sounding than V-DAC?
And one more question if you will. If you use a computer as a source do you use the USB input of the DAC or usb-spdif converter? There is very little information on the USB input quality of the Mini-I and LD DAC_I so far so I wonder will they benefit noticeably from a usb-spdif converter like hiface or musiland 01.
