Isn't the M-dac in a completely different price class, and apple to oranges all around? Also-XMOS rocks-it's the main USB method that my SBT loves.
John-from strictly an amp perspective-how does the HPA-2 compare to the original, assuming the same opamp is used?
They are but mdac is built as a DAC and not as a pure amp which the mstage is. I thought the mstage amp bebe atleast as good but with a different colouration?
But then does it matter with the DAC in the mstage as I am using the mstage purely purely as an amp?or am I missing something?
