Meier Audio Quickstep (also Stepdance and 2Stepdance) Discussion and Impressions Thread - Page 132

Is there Size difference between Quickstep and 2Stepdance?

I checked that before. The measurements on the Meier site suggest that the Quickstep is shorter in length by 1 millimeter. So essentially no difference.

chowyeung has some great unboxing photos and early impressions of the Quickstep (and PCStep) here. His pre-release units are apparently exactly like the pending final products.

My MacBook Air shows that it is "Burr-Brown Japan PCM2702".

Does anyone know what was the dac in the 3move?

Dear Headfellows,

 

"Does anyone know what was the dac in the 3move?"

 

The 3MOVE did use the PCM2702. It is a very decent one-chip solution. Not really high-end but very enjoyable in its standard implementation.

 

The PCSTEP uses the same chip. However, there is a major difference in that I have modified the standard implementation and thus have been able to improve sound quality noticably.

 

Cheers

 

Jan

Dear headfellows,

 

just a quick note that the QUICKSTEP is now available. More info can be found on my website.

 

Cheers

So the price is $385 including shipping outside the EU, 345 within. That is about what I expected.

 

I cannot spring for this just yet... frown.gif  Fortunately my original Stepdance is still rocking and rolling. cool.gif  We can look forward to seeing some more impressions of the Quickstep soon.

Does the Quickstep have 15V DC input like the Stepdance does? I lent my Stepdance to a guy and may never see its return unfortunately. The sound of 15V Stepdance with LCD2 never fails to amaze me.

According to Jan's site, it has that same spec as the Stepdance:

 

Supply voltage: 6 .. (9) .. 15 Volts DC
