I have the V2 of the Devilsound and think it's wonderful through my Luxman tube amp and Focal speakers and REL sub.

Highly recommended!

I bought jwbrent's slightly older Devilsound DAC and it's absolutely awesome! I have it plugged into my Powermac G4, running to my Rotel amp and Paradigm speakers. It also sounds awesome through a Millet Hybrid amp and HF-2s!

I just picked up the new Devilsound DAC today, and I have not been able to stop playing it. Totally amazing sound quality. They should have put the thing in a big shiny silver box because I think most people will make the mistake of dismissing it as not a serious DAC, but that would be a huge mistake, it is so close in sound to a $3000 DAC I compared it to, amazing!

I'm not a huge fan of the sound, but I am however a huge fan of the guys at devil sound, and their openness regarding the product design, ics and components used. If you're looking for an office, or budget NOS dac - i'd give at this guy a hard look.

thisbenjamin, I would be interested in what you found disagreeable about your v2.1? I am currently auditioning one myself and while it's generally getting better as it breaks in a bit, I am finding that it loses control of the low end on some recordings. It's my first outboard DAC, and I have been comparing it to vinyl when I can find the same mix of the same song on CD and LP. I have even ordered another 16-bit adaptive USB DAC that's a bit more versatile to compare with, a Fubar I/O USB DAC/ADC w/Supplier PS, that I can use to digitize my vinyl, theoretically. I'm not opposed to keeping both, as the portability of the Devilsound makes it quite versatile in its own right. But as you said, I'm not so sure I'm such a "huge fan" of the sound so far either and was hoping you might care to expand on your experience with it since I'm relatively new at this. I like the overall soundstage, and the mid, high and mid-bass seem accurate and lively enough, but the bass does seem a little loose to me, and I've never been "bass shy".

I would be more then happy to address your questions, and share my opinions. However, I think I've over-stayed my de-railing of this thread and unless Todd thinks discussing the performance of the devil sound is a good use of this thread, I would ask you either give me a PM or start a new thread.

Not trying to be a tool, I just don't want to screw with Todd's thread.
