Another new X-Sabre owner checking in. Mine arrived Thursday. So far
I've only listened SE through GS-1 => HD800. Very nice signature, almost as
smooth as a wolfson DAC but with better detail and air. So far I'm very pleased
with the X-Sabre.
I'm traveling to home on Monday which will give me a chance to listen balanced
on some of my favorite equipment.
My X-Sabre has arrived, I can finally start building my whole system. I am still yet to buy HTPC, but other than that - I am ready to roll! Nice touch with 32GB flash drive from them as well :)
By the way - is X-Sabre supported on Ubuntu? I just read the manual (well, brochure) and only Windows and MacOS were mentioned there. I don't really want to spend money on Windows unless I really have to.
You should check the thumbdrive again. Mine was a 32mb, not 32gb.
Either you missread or I got shorted.. I haven't even looked at the flash yet,
I assume it is drivers for the X-sabre. Mine is playing fine though coax with
winxp and no drivers installed. I'd be interested to hear if Ubuntu works
well for you, I'm planning on using Ubuntu for my listening station PC.
