post #391 of 391

A point of advice - I found the difference between Sabre chips [Compass-2, NFB-7] and the rest [Wolfson/TI/AKM] quite stark.

The topology does have an influence on the sound of course, but the chips sound more different IMO.

I quite like the Sabre chip and have currently ordered a DAC with one [Gustard X12] but expect a difference between the Ref 10's DAC and NFB-1 :)
