So quick impressions between Calyx M compared to Calyx DAC 24/192 into external amp Burson Soloist.
M was playing as stand alone, minimum gain and using an Audioquest 1/8" to RCA adapter, Soloist in Medium gain. DAC 24/192 fed by USB using Schiit Wyrd, Soloist in Low gain. RCA cables are the same. Used Audeze LCD-3F for this comparison.
M sounds more forward in your face, a tiny little bit dynamic restrained. Detailed and high resolution, very good. DAC 24/192 sounds more open, a lot more relaxed and laid back, comfortable and not breaking a sweat. I preferred the DAC 24/192 for use with an external amp.
