MSB doesn't use 1704 chips. Back in the day they used too, and Rockna/Audiobyte make a dac that uses the pcm1704. But the MSB modules are completely custom for MSB using precision laser cut resistors.
Thanks, that clears things a bit. Still, wondering how it'd go against AMR's c/a thingy. Read here and there that it's excellent piece of hardware. My only fear is that its multibit c/a chip operates only on 44.1 signal. Don't really care much about other DAC that's inside DP-777. I can imagine that DP-777 has ton of enjoyable musicality onboard. Heard a while ago Lampizator Stage 4, and it was incredible. That's why I'm into multibit + valves so much. Fikus, the Lampizator Guy, uses same Philips dac that's inside DP-777 AFAIK.
And, of course, that Rockna piece of hardware looks great. If anyone has impressions on sound, that would be nice.
