First time you touch one you'll change your mind. They're built like tanks.
Also, relative to price...they are cheap.
I've been casually thinking of getting one for awhile, but I've been worried about build quality. Your praise may have put me over the edge.
ssrock - Over the last two weeks I have owned the XDA-2, and now just arriving today the DC-1. My XDA-2 died within 2 days (hence the reason for the DC-1). However, if build quality is your concern, that should immediately be thrown out as a reason to purchase something from Emotiva. From the two DAC's I have seen, the build quality is absolutely second to none in this price range. Heck, just FEEL one of their remotes and you will know what I mean.
Build quality is fantastic! Don't let that or sound quality deter you. For this price, it will be very hard to find something comparable. Can't seem to find much differences between the Lyr and the Mini-x... apart from a brighter and slightly more detailed sound signature.
Thanks! They sure do, I've had them for a few years now and they still hold up. They sound great through my 70's Harman/Kardon receiver
Thanks all!! Yeah it is a small room, my bed is to the right, meeting the wall, and to the left there's a small bookcase and then wall. That really was the best place for the speakers
in the meantime im modding an old pair of Realistic Minimus 7 mini-bookshelves and it's coming along great!! I've got a thread about it and I'm working on making progressive updates to it.
haha, iFi iDAC, iCan + iTube and also the Gemini USB cable.
The headphones are German Maestro GMP 400, great headphones, really love them, with the stack you can really tailor the sound, as they are quite neutral.
