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.
