So that means 3 new products announced in the space of a few days, plus the choral scaler and the ultimate DAC that were leaked a few months ago. It will be a busy 2024 for Chord.
So the new scaler might be last in the production line schedule..

Please, Chord, do not let us speculate too long.

A Choral Scaler for Dave and Ultima Dac with an integrated Ultima Scaler? Or Hugo2 MiniScaler or Mojo Scaler?
I want it all!

Whatever it will be, the future is hopefully nice.

Raising sand is a great album to demonstrate what your dac/setup can do.
So quietly sung, beautiful harmonies, but also variety and really interesting ways they use their voices as instruments.

I switched back to using my zen as an end point via roon on a Mac mini, and it does have a magic realism to it.

I’m also using a zen stream. How do you connect it to Dave (or to mscaler)? BNC or USB? What cable do you use?

And what’s remarkable is how old Dave is and how it’s still giving the youngsters a good run for their money!
Old.. and matureley experienced 😉

When combined with the new Scaler, DAVE will become unattainable by the competition!

And with the equalizer inside it will give you the possibility to adapt it perfectly to every headphone.:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

You run your 1266 directly off the DAVE?

Yes, with great satisfaction. I'm not interested in adding an external amplifier.

Interesting. Do you feel like you’re accepting some trade offs? Small stage, weaker dynamics in exchange for better separation, detail and resolution?
