    Audio-gd R2R 11

    Yes, I find it slightly muddy and that sometimes if falls short on details or gets some details wrong. I've compared it to Master-7, and used it as a stand alone DAC + Master-8. Tonality wise it's great, very analog more than Master-7 and fun to listen to. Using it as a stand alone DAC can get...

    Audio-gd R2R 11

    I wouldn't know for sure, they use different DAC modules, r2r DA8 for r2r11 and DA7 for r2r 7 (audio-gd likes putting 7 to top end modules), I suppose it would be much better though. The amp on the r2r11 is not neutral though, it's warm with strong bass, it would be nice if someone else could...

    Audio-gd R2R 11

    I do, Master-7. I found that the tonality of the r2r11 is better than the Master-7 when I hooked it to the Master-8. Though it falla short on soundstage and detail by a lot.

    Audio-gd R2R 11

    Your specific use seems like DAC only, given that you send it to a preamp. If you will not use headphones, R2R 2 seems like a better option. EDIT: ouch but it's 400 usd more expensive

    Audio-gd R2R 11

    I have the r2r 11 at home now, and testing it versus master-7 and master-8. My impresions, particulary pairing r2r 11 -> Master 8 are very positive, on average Master-7 is better, with low level información, detail, cleaness, soundstage and layering. But the DAC of r2r 11 trumps in...

    New Audio-gd R7 (R2R 7) & R8 Flagship Resistor Ladder DACs

    I'm looking forma the rated input voltage of the XLR input of the Gustard, but I can't find it. R2R 7 has 5v output on XLR

    Hifiman HE1000 Planar Dynamic Headphone

    Just upgraded the pads from v1 to v2. Bass got tighter, and thumps better. Mid bass got louder. A bit more lively. Less strident highs. At the same time they got a bit more highs. The difference is certainly more than I expected.

    New Audio-gd R7 (R2R 7) & R8 Flagship Resistor Ladder DACs

    I could get it and compare the stack to my master7+master8 and try r2r 11 + master 8 also. EDIT: I can't buy anything from audio-gd, I'm from Chile. :triportsad: Seems DHL or others can't ship to my country from China.

    New Audio-gd R7 (R2R 7) & R8 Flagship Resistor Ladder DACs

    Wow! I thought that at 300hr you'd hardly be able to notice a difference from then on. Did you leave it on? it might be something like with Yggdrasil, that you have to leave it on 24/7.

    Strange... considering that Master-7 is sent burn in for 300 hr. Just checked the page and indeed, it doesn't say anything about burn in.

    I recieved my AM3 amp and tested some headphones with it.   balanced:   Beyerdynamic T1 Bad match  volume is too low, sounds peaky at high volume. HE-1000              Decent match, but not that good. LCD-3F               Great match! They are driven well, open and dynamic.     SE:  ...

    People just don't know when to stop.   Well, I guess I'm stuck on FW2.0  because I can't install the 3.0 Beta, hope the final driver will be
