    TEAC UD-501 2 questions . . .

    I'm building a summer home system of KEF LS50s and want to use the UD501 as my DAC. I will be using the TEAC integrated amp for power. Source files would be my FLAC rips (that sit on my network at home). Lot's of questions about best practices here . . .     Sound quality is important but NOT...

    Has anyone auditioned the NAIM DAC V1 vs. the TEAC UD-501?

    I know it's crazy to compare a $2400 DAC against a $800 DAC...but I still want to know if there is ANYONE out there who has heard them both.   Please post your impressions here.   Thanks!

    NOS DACs with good USB implementations?

    I've decided that the NOS sound is what I prefer and looking to add one under $2K for a secondary system.  My main DAC is the Metrum Hex, so the Octave seems the natural choice, but I was wondering if there were others.   My listening is all computer based so I need a good enough USB to not...

    Shopping for DACs in the $700-$2400 range...

    Shopping for a DAC seems to be the most difficult part of my upgrade process. There are just too many options at too many price points and too little consensus. My budget for a DAC depends on the price of the integrated with which I will pair it. If I buy, for example, a $4900 NAIM SuperNait2...

    Alright now what do I do? : aka computer dictates what the external DAC sees

    Today I received my Teac UD-H01. After hooking it up via optical from my motherboard, I noticed the sampling rate was locked at 48khz. After fiddling around with the Teac and testing the connection of the optical cord I went into the setting of the realtek drivers only to find that the max...

    Audiolab M-DAC vs. TEAC UD-501?

    Has anyone ever put these two in a head-to-head. Priced similarly. The TEAC has DSD of course.   Thoughts?   And what happens to the same picture if we throw in the Arcam irDAC?

    TEAC UD-501 on Linux with MPD

    I wanted to report in on the TEAC UD-501. I just got this unit to test it out with Linux and MPD. I have been using MPD for years and really love the audio listening paradigm it supports. In short, this DAC seems to have some problems with USB and Linux. You can get it to play out of the...

    Esoteric D-07 or TEAC's new UD-501 (Which one will you guys pick or any suggestion?)

    Hi all,   Maybe a dump question, as I am trying to hunt down a balance dac and how will you guys choose among the two? (Current setup is Burson DA-160->Burson Soloist -> HD800 and LCD-3, future setup will be "New DAC"->Headamp GS-X MkII->HD800 and LCD-3)   I was thinking to pick up...
