True, but some reviewers say that they liked it more than the emm labs dac2x, at around 15K is more than twice as expensive, that's impressive! Some people also have said that they like the analog dac more than the vega, saying that the msb sounded overall more natural etc

I would agree with those who like it more than the DAC2X. That doesn't mean spending MSB money is necessarily a value proposition though.

Too much potential for greatness there I think. The only other dac in contention is the Vega, and honestly I think it would lose to the Master 7, so it's not really that in contention, it's just gotten nothing but great reviews. Not that the master 7 has any professional reviews at all.

 

The other problem is that Kingwa might run out of 1704 chips for the Master 7...then I'd be Schiit out of luck...so I may end up getting a Master 7 first afterall!

 

Exactly!  The clock is ticking on those PCM1704 chips, and I don't know how close Kingwa is to the end of his hoard.  I'd hate to think of the Master 7 as an interim piece; if I pulled the trigger on capturing this evolved R2R topology, I think that Jason's would end on the Schiit end of the stick.  There's got to be a bottom to all this elusive SQ chasing.

 

If only he'd hint what kind of D/A metholology he's implementing.  I have great hopes in the FPGA topology, meself.  As long as it isn't yet another delta-sigma contender...  

 

EDIT:  Jason did say that it was to be no upsampling DAC.  Doesn't that drive it toward a multi-bit ladder conversion type circuit design?  The MSB Analog DAC is discrete R2R as well, if I read it right.

Dearest Jason:

 

     Please set the Statement gear apart from the rest of the lineup by having a BLACK option for both pieces. I will buy both if you do.

Keep handling your amp/dac after Oreo sessions and it'll be nice and dark very soon... (avoid getting cream on it when possible)

My family calls it 'Oreo butt'. Blacker than black-truly a phenomenal phenomena. But seriously Jason-I NEED a black one! Set them apart from the rest of your lesser Schiit. (I just bought a MJ btw to help persuade you.) L3000.gif

Understand that a black option will add to the price :P

post #432 of 2857

Well it is their Statement piece. Set it apart aesthetically too. I'm not alone, and it would bring more buyers. :)

I prefer black as well.  But it would have to be a polished style which would add quite a bit breaking the Schiit mantra of paying for performance not case work and part selection.  If you only need the can amp, get the Mjolnir.

I'll be down for a black one as well.

Silver is where it is at! Skip the black tongue.gif.
