post #1651 of 1653

Hi everyone,

 

I've just finished reading every post in this thread that discusses the Solo-R.

 

I would appreciate anyone's opinion as to whether or not there is a "better" solution than the Solo-R when my only purpose is to play 44/16 lossless files (streaming from TidalHiFi.com), going Coaxial out to a desktop DAC that does not have balanced inputs.

 

I've read about the Pure i-20, but I don't believe it offers the re-clocked asynchronous jitter-free advantage of the Solo-R.

 

Again, I'm primarily looking for an iDevice > SPDIF Coaxial Out converter.  Is the Solo-R the way to go?

 

Thanks!

 

Mike

I don't even know what S/PDIF is, but...

 

-dB

• Digital S/PDIF output – acts as a digital converter – send decrypted audio to desktop DAC’s

 

-R

• Digital S/PDIF output

 

I would guess -R isn't any different from -dB in this respect.

 

If you want a -dB click below.

^ Thanks!  

 

I bought the Pure i-20 and I'm very pleased...

 

 

The Pure i-20 is rubber-banded to the marble slab of a re-purposed cheese slicer to act as ballast for a re-purposed iPad 3 with 30-pin connector.  :p
