Appreciate your video comparison. Is your Asus EEE running in battery?
Thanks. Asus running in PSU.
Guys, I've a Terminator coming in early April. Shall report back to headfi on the details as soon as I get hold of it
" I'll be back" until april before i get my Ares?
Just placed an order for the ARES . I want to evaluate the unit and also the customer service before I decide to spend more money on the soon to be released tomahawk dac
Whats tomahawk dac?
Yet to be released DAC. It is supposed to be priced around $1.3k with NOS/OS switching similar to the Holo DAC level 1
Looks like a waves of NOS or R2R dac is coming.Sign of the end of DS dac
Agreed. And the prices keep getting better too. 600USD for AGD Singularity 19, Denafrips DAC-68 and ARES for almost the same price, then the Schiits Mimby and Bimby. Lots of reasonably priced DACs are available now. This should be the trend and not the TERMINATOR level price IMO...
Funeral of Delta\Sigma DACs )))
IMO death of DS DAC's are bit premature. There will always be someone who will prefer the DS over R2R. DAC's like Terminator, Holo Level 3 or any other brand in that price range will be a niche market for those who can afford to chase the last 1%.
The latest ds dac offerings already in Handphones. Think that where ds dac belongs You cant queeze a nos r2r in that
As Denafrips guys said, quote: "DENAFRIPS finalized the product line with Ares, Tomahawk, Venus, and Terminator. Tomahawk is to replace DAC-8PRO, Venus is to replace DAC-1Pro"
All models in new product line are R2R discrete ladder DACs.
DS chips also will evolve, and, some manufacturers actually DO invest in SQ instead of better specs only.
Just curious how a good implemented Dual AK4497 would compare to one of the Denafrips R2R's............
