Is there a online store selling the chord dave?
Yes, in france for example https://www.son-video.com/article/dac-audio-usb/chord-electronics/dave-noir
Or in Switzerland: Audio Visual Factory
Can they ship one to the UK for a lifetime trial? I did enjoy my cruise on lake zurich some years back.
It’s not as blue as lake Geneva
What's the power consumption for Dave at standby mode (power on but shut off via remote)?
Also when Dave is turned on but no input /output?
Does anyone know what the recommended input is for the Dave?
I feel like the Hugo 2 benefits a lot from SPDIF input over USB, I don't want to assume the big brother has the same weaknesses, should it be connected directly through USB or will I still use SPDIF?
Optical is the reference.
well, not for all (RF resistant but jitter prone).
Here is my rating of performance..
AES -> Coax -> Optical -> USB
As in audible jitter with clicks and pops?
of course not )
for correct reconstruction of timing and transients, yes.
Interesting, maybe it’s you’re source rather than the dac? I have no idea!
Maybe rob could say, but I thought the optical stream would be error checked and if it were incorrect in any way then it would result in an audible pop.
unfortunately none of present formats is error checked. we all waiting for new )
And yes, it's always about both source and DAC.. about their interconnect interface.
No DAC can do candy from crap. Sh... in sh... out.
It all starts from the source. And if you have a good one with different output options. AES is a prefered one. This is what I said.
How do connect aes to Dave via matrix ?
