Abrahamsen Audio was founded by Per Abrahamsenm who started Electrocompaniet.

 

The A-DAC is a steal (USD110). smily_headphones1.gif

The similarities are clear. If you'd say it where Electrocompaniet dacs i'd believe you....

 

Im still looking for reviews about the Metrum Acoustics Octave but they are scarce. But then again i'm gonna audition the HE-500, T1, HD800, GS-1000 and RS2i in 2 weeks orso. Finaly found a physical "store" that has all those within reach.

Cant really justify two 1k "investments" on short notice anyway :)

Any idea about where one can buy the Abrahamsen stuffs? Preferably an online store that takes Paypal.

Try these (I've used them myself): http://www.ecsholding.com/store/default.asp?mode=butikk&gruppe=Vseries Use Google Translate (or Chrome).

If they ship to "Location: Wherever I am"? Don´t know.

There is something extremely fishy about Audial Model S description - 192 KHz input with a TDA1541 NOS output, how is it even possible? Are they doing the downsampling to 16/44.1 between the input and the DAC chip?

I don't know what you mean. The designer built an async USB interface presumably feeding a CS8416 receiver, which has always been capable of 192 khz. That has nothing to do with the TDA1541's capabilities....

Are you suggesting that TDA1541 is 24 bit/192 KHz capable and it's abilities are only limited by the receiver chip?

No, it's 16-bit, but can take 192khz sample rate from I2S...

Digital to analog conversion chips WM8740, produced by British company WOLFSON, are used for the decoder chips. CS8416 have been chosen for the digital receiver chips after an extensive selection process. WM8740 works in stereo mode while CS8416 supports a 24BIT/192KHZ sample rate.Compared to a regular receiver chip, it is adapted to a higher quality sound source. Currently the popular DIR9001 sold in the market, only supports a 24BIT 96KHZ sampling rate at most. But the CS8416 is able to bring all the potential of a decoder chip into full play.
