Is it me? Or does OPR8R's avatar looks as if it misidentified Clint yelling... "You're DAC is ready!"

Ha ha...  It's just the first day.  What kind of jokes are you going to pull next week?

I would swear that OPR8R's avatar headphones look like hands.

 

Must give a wiiiiiiiiddee soundstage.

So, the guy in my avatar is a character from an manga/anime series (Soul Eater) named Justin Law.  I'm not a huge fan, but I thought he was funny because he always had earbuds on/in, and could never hear a word anyone said.  Imagine a tense moment with a bad guy who has just monologed about how he is going to destroy the world, only to have to good guy reply, "Eh?"  My avatar is essentially him in one of those "Eh?" moments.

Any thoughts on the W4S DAC-2 DSDse?

I haven't seen that anyone here has one yet.  I sent mine in to upgrade it to DSD but it won't be back for another week or so.

Will it get the se upgrades as well?

post #1088 of 1333

There are two upgrade levels....The SE is pricey....The other one gets the upgraded USB and DSD support for $350.

Yeah,  I've noticed.  I'm interested to see if the se is a step up in SQ in some way.  Also, if anyone is using or have used the I2S input and can share their impressions.

+1. This is my interest in learning about as well.

I am right there with you. Interesting to see how the SE can compare to say the NAD51 or the PSAudio PW2 (Since the street price is similar). Did they get the USB updated to a level that is respected by the community.

 

Meanwhile, I still am very happy with my DAC-2...biggrin.gif

 Yeah, last time I checked (18 months ago appx), Coax-in still sounded better than USB @ 44.1 kHz. Hope that the boys improved the USB interface. I still want to do I2S input at some point, though...

This is one of the reasons I'm interested in this DAC.  Not many out there with I2S inputs "That I know of"  I have two of them thus far.  Being as though this has the Saber chip and DSD made me even more interested.

What input do you use?  Can you give me a few impressions? L3000.gif

Wyred4Sound uses Balanced layout for their I2S implementation - not just any I2S output from source will work. One must confirm and/or send their source in to W4S and get it modded.
