Understood; however, Cesar is about 10 minutes from me and I'd really like to give his product a chance before making a decision.

 

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm; I've got the...

 

SOLUTION: buy both:)

I'm torn between the two, due diligence wise (aka Internet). I wouldn't use the Leck's DAC because I'm afraid I would "brick" my iPhobe 4s by jailbreaking it.

 

Hate to pay for something\feature(s) I won't use...

 

BIG chicken here:)

 

But the Porta is 2x$:(

 

TIA - Rich

I didn't even know the Porta existed until you mentioned it.  I did read up on it and it seems very good.  Maybe you can be the first to compare it with the UHA?  biggrin.gif

Not sure what to think after two weeks and 50+ hours. Comparing with AKG550 vs Essence STX, i still get noticeable distortion on the Leckerton but not the STX. The Leckerton is used exclusively with my MacBook Pro via optical connection. Both playing the same flac files. Dont know if my MBP digital out is crappy or not. USB connect has the same distortion at the same volume level.

You should sent Nick (Leckerton) an email and find out what is going on. You may have a defective unit.

It has to be the UHA-6s Mk.II as it's extremely unlikely that both your USB ports and audio-out would be defective but only with one device rather than the device being defective. If you want to confirm it, plug it in to another computer but I'd be extremely surprised if it behaved itself.

Finally got home to try it out again.  It's my MBP (2010 model) that's crapping out.  Connected to my PC via USB and it sounds as good as my Essece STX.  The clarity is insane, even at max volume with gain off, there isn't any noticeable distortion.  Thanks for the feedback.

That's... Weird. I don't see why a MBP would not work with one device but would with another.

Indeed. Both usb and headphone/optical combo of the mbp seems to be struggling while my desktop works just fine.

But does it with any other device? For example, does it work with headphones, a USB hard drive, or any similar AMP/DACs?

It worked fine with a ibasdo d4 but I didn't have an accurate headphone like the k550. I had an ultrasone pro 900 with the d4 and listened to different type of music then vs now.

Yeah, tried to order a few nights back (to replace the Pico USB DAC/amp I have, since that works with my US S3, but not my new Galaxy Note 2).
