I have no doubt that the Bryston and the PS Audio are great units. I've heard the PWD and like it a lot. But, to me, the DAC should not be a piece of gear with character. It should be technically perfect, sonically without fault, and it's performance should be vetted against some benchmark. I am comfortable setting that benchmark at "what mastering engineers use."
If various prices the answer is just not that simple
I own the MyTek , pwdmkii , audio GD M7
, msb platinum stack. And have heard the lampi
Level 4 gen 4. And they all sound different
I conclude some have just separation of the music
And overall a better sound quality niw I also own an offramp
That improves almost all of the dacs
Now a recording engineer does need a ad to da
Converter but I do think the MyTek is a commercial pro
But that is just my thoughts
i know i'm a little late on this thread and i hope its ok to jump in. i'm new to all this and i too am looking to buy a new dac. i'm not opposed to spending a little more $$$ if its a product that is going to last/ provide years of enjoyment.
so my question, (hope this doesn't sound stupid & yes i am new to this) "has anyone compared the Mytek to the Auralic Vega? i know the Vega is more money but i have read many good reviews, and i really like the look!
thanks, and looking forward to hearing some feedback.
[...]I compared the Vega to the Mytek Stereo192-DSD DAC ($1,695.00, see review) which I thoroughly enjoy, and the Mytek sounds slightly veiled and diffuse in comparison. This is an interesting discovery because I never would have described the Mytek as sounding veiled or diffuse without hearing the Vega side by side.[...]
I want to use the DAC as headphone amp and also want to drive the speaker.
I read the Yulong DA8 thread and review says the mytek amp section is pretty weak compare to Yulong DA8 amp.
Is this true ?
(Edit : I guess you answered but) So Yulong DA8 is better ? I want a nice (not overly expensive) that can play DSD128 and works as headphone amp.
Thanks in advance.
