Oh, and it seems he mistook an older Meitner DAC2 for the modern M1.

My Concero shipped today.
post #153 of 726

Looking forward to reading the Concero impressions!

 

The relevant DACs which I'd compare against the Concero are:

 

Eastern Electric MiniMax DAC

Wavelength Proton

Peachtree Dac-it (already mentioned by project86 earlier)

Yulong D18

I can't help with the Proton or the MiniMax, but I will compare it to the Yulong D18 and PeachTree DAC-IT. Also probably the Yulong D100 MKII, Matrix Quattro DAC, and a few others. Man this is going to be fun but take a lot of work!

I don't have any of those. I'll be putting up against my Ayre QB-9.

Assuming it shows up on schedule, I will have it at the meet in Coronado on 11/3. It's a short flight, come on down. biggrin.gif

I might be selling my invicta soon since I haven't been listening to my home setup in the past few months.  Feel free to let me know if anyone is interested in one.cool.gif

Even the DACs you guys listed above would be really interesting to compare against :)  The Dac-it was high on my curiosity list since it became a Computer Audiophile recommended DAC, but I've seen a lot pop up used on the market over the last several months.  I'd imagine the Ayre would best the Concero, but I have that bias about how small the Concero box is.  I'm not advocating that Resonessence should pull a Shunyata, but I'm still wondering how much is lost with the Concero's form factor.

 

I need to find myself down to Socal one of these days :)  I travel a lot for work, but it's usually not to LA/SD.

At some point in the process I'll probably bring the Arcam rDAC home from the office and see how it does against the Concero.

It's here!

And yes, it's reallly small (that's a new iPod Touch next to it)

Starting to listen. Impressions in a few days.

 

NOTE: It's not obvious from the discussion on page 4 of the manual, but the order of steps in the start-up process is muy importante (at least when your source is a Mac).  Shut down your music player software, then select the Concero from System Preferences/Sound, then relaunch your music player software, and you're good to go.  Leave your music player software open before and after you select the Concero, and you've got a very nice looking paper-weight.

Well, I guess I must like the Concero.  I just sold my QB-9.L3000.gif
