Thanks for letting me know. I read your last post on it and it kind of gave the impression that the two were close, but that you 'thought' the AP1+PP should sound better since it's greater cost. So the verdict from then to now is that you've sold/moved on from the AP1+PP to straight USB32 on the Master 7?
And how about a comparison with the PS Audio PWD mkII, any takers there? These two components are close enough in price that I'd really love to hear a good comparative review.
I am interested in this as well. I really would like to get the end-all DAC. I value sound stage (depth and width), detailed placement of sounds/instruments, and then good extension. At this price point, I would like some meet on the bones, and decent tonality, but precise layout is paramount for the way I listen. I think Preproman et al, AKA the OH Crew, are working DAC swap and comparisons, so sooner or later we should have interesting reviews.
