Does anyone own the Wyred4sound DAC 2? - Page 85

Yeah these aren't Justin's HeadAmp cases for sure.  I would believe that once you strip it the metal needs to be fine sanded and maybe filled and sanded again and again before paint.  Just like those car shows.

200+ hours now on the DSDse...Great improvement in Space Speed and Clarity. Great upgrade. Highly recommended.

 

As for the case compared to Justin, I like their styling, but if we had the anodizing color choices I wonder about price and wait time. No question about Justin's quality. It is nice after all the custom stuff I have had done with their wait times to actually order something and it is actually delivered in a couple of days!

 

I want patience and I want it now!  biggrin.gif

128DSD...Sweet. It sounds like I am plugged into the mixing board!

Nice.  What are you playing at 352k?  What did you play at DSD128?

I wen to www.2L.no and DL'd in DSD128

 The I went to www.superhirez.com and DL'd Shelby Lynne's Just a Little Lovin' in DSD64.

 

Incredible clarity! The chain is pretty strong all the way through. I added the Toxic Cables Balanced Silver Widow's to the HD800's.

I can afford the W4S DAC2 DSD but the SE is a stretch. How much of a loss will I have if I cannot afford the latter?

Hmmm...  I'll have to give them a shot.  I like the way DSD's sound too.

 

What do you think of the difference with the balanced cable on the Taboo?

I can't speak for what the "se" brings over the DSD.

Early in the analysis for balanced vs SE. There is more power from the Balanced, so I have to turn it down a bit from SE listening levels.

I would say the DSD gives you 80% an the se the last 20%. You will be very pleased with just the DSD version.

A Love Supreme available at Acoustic Sounds for download on DSD.  I've read it is quite good.  I'll be buying that when I get my upgrade.

Well folks, it's sad to say, but after 2+ years with my DAC-2, I've essentially sold mine to a local buyer. He's picking it up in a week or two right after my new Bryston BDA-2 arrives. For the $, I still think that in the price range (sub $1600), its the best I've heard.

Hey, this IS a hobby...biggrin.gif

 

I love my DSDse upgrade. It really is a new DAC so in a sense I have done the same thing.  I look forward to your impressions in the BDA-2 thread.

Funny, the DAC-2 is the longest piece of gear I've kept over the past 2 years (except for my HD800s). For good reason...it's a great DAC!

 

But that said, the BDA-2 in my rig, did bring both my stat and dynamic rigs to another level.

Nice that you were able to find a local buyer.  The BDA-2 is quite an attractive DAC.
