Matrix spdif 2 converter
Sorry, don't get you.
Matrix has AES out, Dave has AES input. Just get cable and connect. Or what you mean?
Coax is just single right? I'm going to be using the Schiit Eitr, hopefully it's good enough.
Yes, is good.
My mistake I thought you meant is2 method.
Eitr might introduce unwanted RF noise. Direct is best IMHO.
I remember somebody referring PS audio snowmass dac in Dave or tt2 thread. https://www.audiosciencereview.com/...f-ps-audio-perfectwave-directstream-dac.9100/ after reading above it seems PS dac can't even beat a cheap chifi dac, leave alone even mojo.
nonsense, ps audio ios a terrific dac right up there with the very best
You still can't ignore how bad that looks, do you think Rob would release even a "mojo tier" DAC in that state?
It measures very bad objectively to the point that listeners think the sound difference is due to extra distortion from the signal path
@tunes, I think @jlbrach is asking @Deftone what he meant. And I think @Deftone meant even if PS Audio Directstream sounds euphonic and is considered a top DAC by many people, Rob Watts would not release a DAC would euphonic sound if the audio measurements are technically so poor. Because @Deftone thinks it simply looks bad for the company and designer to release a DAC that measures poorly.
I personally think that there are many audio products that measure poorly that many designers and companies are very proud of. And there are many consumers who love buying these products and would defend them endlessly. I figured, it’s their money so who am I to judge. For myself, I find that great measurements don’t guarantee great sound. But poor measurements always sound subpar to me. Being slightly judgmental myself and thinking that this Chord forum is a safe space, I think people who love poor measurements just don’t know what to listen for, or they just love the distortion. But like I said, if they like what they hear, it’s their money, koodos to them.
ok, as one who owns both the chord and the ps audio I say again nonsense but you are entitled to your opinion
This $13k dac was a regular feature in Dave thread and does not better even $100 khadas tone board. Can't believe. https://www.audiosciencereview.com/...and-measurements-of-totaldac-d1-six-dac.8192/
