Nice to see the good ole dacmagic there as well. It's never been very popular on here, especially compared to brands like Schiit. But its a great dac that can still compete with the newbies imo. And It's apparently better than the newer upgrade ;

My ears say to me that this dacmagic does a darn good job with HD800. Smooth sound , not the last word in term of detail maybe. I'm not so eager to spend money in better gear now ;)

Yeah its smooth and balanced. Very neutral, like a dac should be :)

 

The smoothness works well with the HD800's

I'm not eager but I plan to buy complete TOTL Jan Meier's gear DACCORD+CLASSIC anyway :)

Sounds like you want an DA8 tongue.gif

Yeah that's the thing with current dacs. They're all pretty equal these days up until the $1000 mark. They all share the same or equal chips and implementation. Basically you're paying for better power implementation with TOTL. This is where you'll gain better control and dynamics. 

 

To gain any kind of worthwhile upgrade from a decent mid pricer you will need to go all-out top end. imo..

After enjoying all your rigs I thought I'd post my modest setup. J.River 18 > ODAC > O2 > Modded SR225i (vented, sock mod, woody, padded cloth headband to match the wood)
