Well the most important thing for me is that It's good know that there are so many interesting and good sounding DACs in the 600-2000 $ price range that you can choose depending on your taste/chain.
Pairing is crucial and that is something that everybody has to figure out for themselves, based on the charactestics of each component. That certainly is not an easy task, though!
I just think that Project86 is doing a wonderful job with his reviews that highlights DACs different flavors and pairing opportunities which makes it very clear to understand. I trust him immensely.
I am a former owner of the Mytek 192 and I am looking for a replacement unit. I am looking for a more refined, musical unit. I agree with Project86 and SoundBsessive review for the most part. I really think the Mytek is overestimated (lean sounding, not engaging, HP amp ridiculous).
I think than any of the other DACs is a better choice (Concero, Matrix, Anedio D2, DA8).
Project86 you just need one more comparison to be the most influential of all the reviewers and that is with the Audio-GD Master 7. I am looking forward on your impressions, because based on the forumer's opinions It should be better than DA8 and Matrix and could be a strong competition (if not on par) for the Invicta.
In particular you have to confirm if the M7 is very detailed but can still keep musicality (the strenght of thje Invicta and the very best DACs).
