Dark Voice 339 - Page 83

post #1231 of 2404

My new 339 with be shipped from China within the next week or two :)

 

Any recommendations for DAC? I've recently been using a Xonar Essence STX so I'm looking to pick up a new DAC to pair with the 339. I've heard good things about the HRT II+ and Bitfrost, but I'm not sure if one is a better match than the other? Or are there better options (either for performance or value)?

 

Price range is around HRT/Bitfrost price.

 

Thanks.

You could go with the HRT MSII regular (non-plus) version and stay within the same price range of the Xonar Essence STX while gaining that 'grainy analog' sound that is so highly regarded with the Music Streamers.  Just an idea.

Well, I found out what Liu meant when he said he was sending me a new "339".  I thought it was a replacement plate... Not sure what to do now... :)

Very good service. It would be fair to ask him what to do with the 1st one though ;)

Yeah, I definitely don't want him taking a loss and I really appreciate what he did.

Any opinions? If not, pulling trigger on a great priced new HRT II+.

Pricepoint?

Around the price of II+ / Bifrost. Probably $400 max, though I'd love to keep it lower.

 

Found a Canadian store selling the HRT II+ for $370 with taxes and shipping so seems like a good deal. I've heard the 339/HRT pair is great, but just wondering if there is anything better and/or if I should skip on the HRT due to sampling limitations, etc.
