Excuse me, but if you didn't hear the concero, why it should sound worst than the u3?
I read some reviews and its sound quality is compared to the audiophilleo...

Did I say that? No.

 

I have also heard good things about the Concero. Whether one thinks it sounds better or worse is entirely subjective. All of these interfaces are competitive with each other, it's just a matter a of taste. Sorry that you misunderstood me.

 

 

If I remember correctly, there is a 6moons review where Srajan compares the sound all three. He prefers the Audiophilleo over the Stello U3. I definitely disagree.

 

Have you heard the Stello U3 yourself? Or did you just assume it must sound "worst" b/c of the lower price?

 

Anyways, what it sounded like you were asking for was a cheaper alternative than the Concero. The U3 is cheaper and certainly gets my approval. I make no guarantee that you would like it better, but I would also be surprised if you did not find it acceptable. Like I said, all of these converters are competitive. The differences can be subtle, but they are definitely there.

Yes, sorry. You're right
You know: when you (I) arrive at a quality level then it's very difficult 'downgrade'
Anyway I thought yo keep the concero as the transporter to the Burson and use it pure dac in my main analog setup, cause it's very little and portable and cool
Thanks

Yup, I totally agree with that. I personally don't think it's worth selling or worth changing to the Audiophilleo either.
