@musickid you might find this part of the very recent AudioBacon review of the Mscaler interesting for your deliberations. In the link below he considers the TT2 + Mscaler up against solo Dave. https://audiobacon.net/2019/05/31/chord-electronics-hugo-m-scaler-review-digital-disruption/5/ PS, I like the part where he goes on to compare both DACs with the Mscaler : "Hugo TT 2 vs. DAVE (both with Hugo M Scaler) So what is the performance gap when both DACs are using the Hugo M Scaler? Huge. The DAVE was already great. The Hugo M Scaler activates GOD mode."
