I just wish they had sorted the clicks and pops out before releasing it.
The DAC1-HDR is like a fine piece of furniture; the master craftsman's finest work, perfected over generations of tweaks and improvement until it is a masterpiece.
The DAC2 is a bit rough and ready by comparison. Yes, it sounds great. But it is rough around the edges. I *hate* the loud pop when switching to analogue input for example. It's really naff. The DAC1 was always so impeccably behaved and to go from that to the uncouth DAC2 is a bit of a let down to be honest. Yes, it sounds great and that's the most important thing. But I can't help think that the DAC2 MK1.1 will be a bit more polished than my 1.0 version is.
Agreed, the analogue switch thing is somewhat annoying in this price range, but that being said, I rarely switch to analogue inputs so it's not much of a problem.
All in all, still pretty happy with my purchase
