Thoughts on a bunch of DACs (and why delta-sigma kinda sucks, just to get you to think about stuff) - Page 37

Yeah I've had something similar with the BK-16 kit and T90s. I was going to go on to the BK-20 boxes, until I realized I had the space to go all out and happened to have some Cicada drivers (ideal for OB) needing a home.

 

I more or less plan on buying the Yggy based on what I know, which isn't much. But I get a sense of Mike's preferred sound and where Schiit wants to go with it. The Yggy is already late along with the Rag, but I'm guessing neither of those will go anywhere until they get it just right. Obviously something just slightly incrementally better than the Gungnir would not be acceptable, taking into account diminishing returns of course.

 

I'm sure Jason's feeling the pressure already. :biggrin:

Hehe yeah I bet he is! I will be keeping a close eye on the Yggy and am looking forward to your review. It seems you and I have similar taste and mentality :tongue_smile:

 

Have a good evening!

I can't believe I've been listening to opinions on audio equipment from someone whose speakers look like that.

I figured this was a good place to put my thoughts since we are talking about many dacs. I feel regardless of the dac, 2x dsd is the best! even on the msb. I know technically there are superior formats. I think it is perhaps because it is the closest to analog(sort of). apparently if you play a 1 bit stream right into an analog amp you will get music. maybe that explains why I like it so much. everyone is talking about dacs sounding more analog. I know this was against dsd so I might be talking to the wrong folks. I remember the first time I heard sacd. before it even hit the public. I thought it was the first real different kind of digital reproduction. for the better. than years later, here it is again. once again I prefer it vastly. why do you guys hate it? I am not playing dsd. I am upsampling redbook to dsd. which to me sounds much better than upsampling to 24/192 and even way above. it still holds true however that better dacs are better at dsd as well. well, at least for me and at least for now dsd has beaten out pcm upsampling. I will go so far as to say I am liking it better than nos r2r. the air,space,placement,prat all better to me. the only place it lacks a little is it does not seem to have as much sub bass as pcm. I just turned up my subs ;) don't hold me to this though. I reserve the right to change my mind!

 

one thing I would like to know are there any (much)cheaper dacs than the msb that can upsample to dsd on the coax? I wish I could do that with my transport in my bedroom.

my pc is fine but I cannot find a rf remote receiver for the darn thing. I have a universal brand remote and it does not have ir and I do not want to buy another dongle. I know it is ot but if anyone know's how to work that id appreciate it.

Clearly DSD sounds better the more you do drugs.

that is really rude. this entire site is based on subjectivity. if you think it sucks you do not have to say something like that to me.

You're right, it does sound rude.  I apologize.  I was trying to be funny.
