Agreed. The only flaw in mine is from when I smacked it into the metal bar on my Salamander Archetype rack. And it made a tiny little dot, almost non-existent. A normal enclosure would have taken more damage.post #369 of 11963/26/13 at 2:53pmpost #370 of 11963/26/13 at 3:13pmpost #371 of 11963/26/13 at 7:33pmpost #372 of 11963/27/13 at 4:07ampost #373 of 11963/27/13 at 1:12pm
In regards to the "LOL", may I assume you may read a not too glowing review somewhere? Or perhaps you feel it sheared your ears off?
You do know of the comparative review involving these two DACs and two others floating around the Internet somewhere?post #374 of 11963/27/13 at 3:58pm
Hi purrin, I like my DAC [*], but now I'm curious to hear the X-SABRE.
I've read the "google doc". With Safari is very difficult move between cells in order to read and understand the differences. It is also difficult to copy and paste in google translate. Anyway it is very interesting. So, although English is hard for me, I joined here to learn more.

There was someone else in that thread who also used firewire via mac. It's likely that this method may have resulted in less treble issues compared to USB2.
