Both of his statments. I agree most of the time with him . I guess it's just what we like. The only DAC that has bass like the m7!is the pwd mkii. . But the M7 is overall a better DAC for me. But it must be used with an offramp or the ap1/pp. Even if I use the ps audio PWT with the various inputs including dac ladders hdmi. It's still no where as good as the usb converters. Again this is opinion but I do own all,the stuff but I do not review items.
No, I like my M7 w/ fully-loaded OR5 and DACLadder mod. I am just trying to learn something between what seems/seemed to be at odds with each other in a way that I couldn't resolve myself. Thanks for the response.
