That's also 4 1/2 times the cost of the Modi. LOL
agree but wouldn't the main area for improvement be in the power supply , and analog stage, ?
dacs with the same digital chips can, and often to, sound different
there are very audible differences in the modi and the bifrost, and bifrost and the bifrost uber(though sound difference is not as much here)
I don't know. I have the ODAC, which by all testing measurements, is already at the point where inaccuracy/distortion of the device is perhaps inaudible. In getting to the ODAC from the various devices I upgraded from, the differences became much less significant as I went up in price, but going from any onboard audio to the ODAC was a huge gain, which is the kind of improvement Pianist is looking for.
