ONKYO DAC 1000 32/192 USB asynchronous - Page 6

post #76 of 82

Dig up this old thread. Before I decided to invest on HP-A7, I compared these few interesting Japanese USB DACs on this page: http://alturl.com/oruht

Price wise they are all on par. DAC-1000's advantage is more input options, but lacks of amp section and phone jack. What prompt my decision was the fame of Fostex in pro audio and its amp section, though seldom use it. Also DAC1000 weigh more than 3KG, postage from JP would be more than doubled too. Looking forward to your opinion if anyone of you get it.

Another interesting find is the IZO brand, which seems to be Japanese exclusive. Looks very neat and according to a friend in Tokyo they are "damn good". But dare not bite bullet.

Thanks for the pointer to the Izo brand. I'm in Tokyo and will go search for a place that has it. It looks interesting.

That has been on my mind for a while actually. I was only after a DAC, so I wasn't sure how much I was paying for the Luxman's amp that comes with it. (since the amp-only version is already 2K).

I haven't read a review from anybody who's done a direct comparison between the two. From what I've heard, it seems the Luxman may be more "musical" compared to the Onkyo's neutrality.

Connectivity options are pretty impressive, too many audiophile DAC builders skip on this and hide behind "purity" concepts.

 

 

Hi, I am looking at the Onkyo P-3000R preamp, available online in the U.S., and which is said to include "the guts" of this DAC, so I wonder if anyone else has any impressions of this DAC or the preamp?  Also, from gevorg's post above, I can't tell if he is implying the PCM1795 is a good DAC chip or not?

 

The P-3000R sure adds some nice features as a full DAC/Preamp/Headphone amp.  The user manual is available online and shows a schematic indicating it has 3 separate amps: one for each of the two preamp outs, and one for the headphones.  Unfortunately, they only show the output specs for the preamp, not the headphones.

 

Rated RCA Output Level and Impedance    1 V/330 ohms (Pre out)
Maximum RCA Output Level and Impedance    5.0 V/330 ohms (Pre out)

Bump.   I'm interested in the Onkyo p-3000r as well. Anybody using it?  If so, what do you think?
