December 2013 Mid-Level DAC Comparison - Page 27  

post #391 of 1331

It would be nice if they just shipped Gary a loaner while yours is headed back for repair.  (You could mention that there are a lot of eyes watching their handling of your unit because of this thread.  It was supposed to be a heavyweight contender.)  :o

Had they done that with this unit, we'd have a dead DAC at Gary's. I will ask about a loaner to enter into the fray. I'm guessing they wouldn't but yaneverknow.

WOW man where the heck have I been..  Sorry I'm late to the party Gary.  Maybe I'm right on time.  I can send you the PWD mk2 to take the place of the Hilo if you want.  No problem at all.  

 

I've been evaluating my new DAC.  The AMR DP-777, she's a beauty.

 

Let me know on the PWD mk2..

You missed Gary's epic thread of awesomeness? :blink: Welcome to the party then! Very nice of you to throw in the PWD mk2 in place of the Hilo.

 

Gary...any new updates? :popcorn:

Yeah, the PWD mk2 will be a heavyweight contender for sure!

Eagerly awaiting your impressions once you've tried all of these DAC's.

Prepro:

 

Thanks very much for the offer of the PWD mk2, but unless my 30 seconds of pricing research are wrong, it cannot be had new for <$2500, which is where I have arbitrarily drawn the line for "mid-level."  As a result, it doesn't qualify for this comparison test -- again, unless somebody can show me where to buy a new one for <$2500 (me and about a bazillion other guys on this forum). 

 

I would like to hear it though... so if you are going to be in town over the holidays, and want to drop by and happen to have it on you... we might be able to find a power and data in and analog out hook up for it... just for kicks, not for comparison... :evil:

 

PM me if you are interested in stopping by... maybe we can coordinate with Barry S' schedule, as he has indicated that he would like to try all of the toys.

And speaking of the toys, the NAD, Arcam, Emotiva and Dangersous Music DACs are here.  At least one more package is at the post office (they left me a notice), with more likely to arrive tomorrow and Friday. 

 

In the meantime, I'm trying to finish up my work responsibilities so I can take off starting next Tuesday... so things are a bit crazy right now.  So begins the fun?

The suspense is killing me already lol.

post #402 of 1331

Really looking forward to this as well.

 

I picked up a Dangerous Source this week, initial impressions are that my Gungnir will most likely be up for sale soon.

 

Thanks for all the coordination and effort into putting the comparison together.

I have one Dangerous Source on its way to my work now. Along with the Focal Spirit pro.

 

It's for work use but I'm quite sure they will allow me to take it home for trial.

Gary,  you can find it new on the goN for under that price if you look.  However, if you like it, It ca be had for little or nothing.  I'm selling it :biggrin:

Hmmm... does anybody object to the PWD II being added in place of the Hilo?  It is list priced almost double my limit... but someone is selling one new in the box on AudioGon for <$2500... so does it qualify or is it a ringer?
