DACs item created by jacksonchansf, Jun 13, 2012
Pros - After changing the opamp, it was Musical, wide, warm, details,
Cons - simple 9V DC, nowaday should provide switching power
Prefect DAC with prefect price, excellent
Pros - Clarity, Detail, and an overall Great Value
Cons - Somewhat Cold
The SD-1955 delivers very low distortion for the price, and a clean, clear all-encompassing sound to match. Exchanging stock op amps is recommended.
Pros - Nice sound, handles all types of bit rates
Cons - None yet
I've only had this unit for a few days so I expect it should get a little better with burn-in, and I can already hear that happening. It plays CDs and DVD-Audio discs with no problem, and streaming through the USB is great. Very nice, smooth sound. A big improvement to my system.
FYI - the dac chip in this device is the same one that's used in the Emotiva cd player.
