24 bit was/is overrated, 32 is just playing a numbers war. Shame you can't really upgrade analog components these days at a fixed cost structure. Thats where the flagship products come in.

+1

Personally I find the PCM1704 chips vastly overrated in the DAC's I have heard.

 

But I agree it's the implementation that counts, more so than the actual chip.

Numbers game? My receiver with the .000000000000000000001% THD sounds awesome!   :veryevil:

THD is one of the most useless parameters to get a feeling of sound, almost except thd 10% vs thd 0.1% might be very obvious.

Those tube amps with thd 0.2% sound awesome!!

.ps, I know you are joking, btw.

Seems like there is always another spec for marketing to get fired up about....

How is the Bifrost/Lyr combo for the LCD-2?  Is the Asgard 2 a better amp for LCD-2?

IMHO, Asgard is good...Lyr is better with the right tubes.
