Metrum NOS Hex Flagship DAC - Page 29

post #421 of 428
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.

Ha Ha I like it, mask your sound with tubes. Maybe you should try a top NOS tubed DAC and come back here! I have tried many many Delta-Sigma SS DACs and find only tubed NOS DACs sound realistic and fatigue free to me. Get one home for an few days, not listen for 30 minutes at a demo or show. Then you will see, trust me....

I might be wrong but I feel Earlxtr was speaking about tubes AFTER the dac, not IN the dac that are potentially masking the transparency of the Hex.

Is the Pavane worth the extra dollars over the Hex? Dunno, the Hex is awful good.

 

 

Just unpacked my new toy... Give me a day or so, will report.
