Is the DacIT the Peachtree product?

Nice...I bought a Peachtree Nova 125 several months ago and it's unbelievable how good it sounds. I have no doubt their stand alone DACs are fantastic. Usually when I'm firing up the piece, I'm listening to my Magnepans, but late at night I will run the extension cable for my T1s and listen from the Nova headphone jack...it's just a terrific piece of gear.

the dacIT and the bifrost are my two top contenders,

then other outsiders, micromega, ifi, musical fidelity, who knows !

I also pushed the "buy button" on a pair of RS1i Grados, too.  They'll need a little work as the cable was chewed and is not functional.  This is not an issue though as I've really never liked the stock Grado cables because of the twisting issues that can occur with the wires above the "Y".

 

Looking forward to getting them before the upcoming long weekend, so I can perform the necessary surgery.

 

I had a chance to try the MS-Pro from Alessandro a few years back.  I only had my Magnum builds to compare it to at the time.  However, the headphone was being sent around on a bit of tour and each member would use it for about a week.  To me, I really just didn't "wow" me at the time, so that is why I'm looking forward to the RS1i to collect some impressions of that model.

 

I was actually considering another custom Magnum build, but sourcing the components from 3 or 4 different individuals wasn't something that I cared to do this time around.  A few years back, I was much more open to the idea of performing those tasks.  Time is just much tighter right now, though.

I had the MyDac in here for about three weeks. It was an upgrade over my AudioEngine D1, but it was a bit on the bright side. The Meier DAC was easily my preference once I auditioned it. 

 

I'd have no hesitation purchasing anything from Peachtree.

When I first fired it up it was really overwhelming how much more detail there was, but then over the next several days there would just be times when I found it was exhibiting a slight lack of neutrality, edging toward the bright side. Even with my T1s, which are more neutral than bright, it was noticeable.

Assuming that was for a used one? If new, that's way cheap.

Just ordered my Little Dot I+ (so cheap :D) and now I'm going to read about tubes until it ships...

 

Pretty excited for my new cans to get here.
