An interesting discussion with the director of Audionote on enjoythemusic: http://www.enjoythemusic.com/magazine/enjoythemusic_tv/peter_qvortrup.htm

About 22minutes in, he shares some news about an R2R dac they've been working, which seems promising even they did not expect much at the start. Talking 20kUSD figure / free upgrade for recent owners of top end AN dacs (if it turns out it demolishes their current line, which appears so).

The cynics may see in this a good way to efficiently amortise expensive R&D for resistors but I was impressed with the honesty of the talk.

Probably out of budget for many including myself, but always exciting to hear about revival of discrete dacs!

Anyone who's got fresh info, please share!

Arnaud

I heard the prototype in England last month which sounded very good to me.
