Audio-gd Digital Interface - Page 268

post #4006 of 4008

I emailed Kingwa about this maybe 2 weeks ago.  He said he "expects" the new DI to outperform all built in USB 32 (when used with I2S output) and all previous DIs.

 

Personally I'd be surprised to hear a difference bigger than one you might hear after a firmware/driver upgrade.

I have the NFB-10ES2 and I am wondering if someone could explain the sonic benefits of a digital interface like the DI-2014.
I primily listen through USB from my MAC (lossless files with DAC settings at 24/176). On occasion I will also play through an Apple Airport Express (I use an older model because there is too much jitter for the 10ES2 with the new model Airport Express). Would DI-2014 help with the optical input jitter?

"What's benefit of the coaxial / Optical inputs:
                    The coaxial / optical inputs can improve on SQ from some low/mid rang coaxial output source. Like some DVD player, PC sound card, low/mid rang CDP like the Marantz CD67, ect. If the coaxial output source already  Hi-end quality, don't expect the DI-2014 can improve on SQ."
