I have to ask, "Has the community of pro hifi writers and critics ever met a DAC they did not LOVE?" Seems to me that I have not read a review that panned a DAC. So, what's up with that?
Can they all be not good but very very good? I doubt it. So, please if you know of a pro review that pans a DAC, toss me a link. Or, if you have similar thoughts on this issue, give us a piece of your mind, please.
I also would like opinions on an inexpensive, as far as DACs go, DAC, the Maverick DAC 1 Plus.
I don't know why this DAC has a tube and an op-amp. Seems to me it should have one or the other for amplification purposes.
At any rate, my purchase of a DAC is six to twelve months away. That's plenty of time to cut through the smoke and mirrors. Right?
