I said DON'T TALK !!

Maybe... but when I read that Anedio d2 is in another league....
I don't know... I'm reading many online impressions.
Another dac I'm reading of is Audio-gd Master7 and Lynx Hilo.post #483 of 9534/12/13 at 6:19ampost #484 of 9534/12/13 at 6:37ampost #485 of 9534/12/13 at 7:17amQuote:
Are you not interested in DSD?post #486 of 9534/12/13 at 8:02am
So and so.
Even if I have some sacd iso it could always be converted to 192/24 or 96/24 pcm file.
DSD is a plus but it's not necessary for me to be on my future dac.

I would think that most people who ordered would have just barely received their unit, and not had much time to form impressions. Apparently Matrix sold out of the first run and there's now a short wait until the next batch is ready. So there must be at least a few users out there.post #490 of 9534/20/13 at 9:11ampost #491 of 9534/25/13 at 2:11pmpost #492 of 9534/25/13 at 3:27pmThread Starterpost #493 of 9534/29/13 at 9:14amQuote:
I was also wondering the same thing.....post #494 of 9534/29/13 at 9:44amThread Starter
Sorry, I haven't heard the Teac unit. I did a review of one of their network streamers back in the day and had some rather harsh words for it. Since then I get no replies to emails about potential reviews. Oh well.post #495 of 9534/29/13 at 12:52pmQuote:
Ha Ha......they have locked you out of all future products......It always astonishes me when companies do this
