post #421 of 421
I've got the Octave MK1, Octave MK2 and the Hex. The sound of the two octave DACs is virtually identical, nothing close to the richness and fullness of the Hex. I have these connected to a very transparent Bryston/PMC 22 system and the Hex was worth ever penny. If you mask your sound with tubes, you may not notice as much difference.
