    The Chord Elite's would be Dave or Hugo 2 not Qutest though.

    As a pure desktop DAC, Qutest is better than the Hugo 2 with variable output, better inputs.

    I was under the impression that iPurifier3 etc only added an advantage if you were using mains (AC supply) or playing via a laptop?, but no SQ benefit if you're, for example running the iDSD BL via a DAP, both running on their battery?, is this correct?

    Anyone tried to connect the iDSD to the their router via ethernet? I know it doesn't act as Roon endpoint, but does it work well as a server streaming using Muzo?

    Anyone knows if I can use regular USB 2.0 A-B cable for iDSD?

    Edit: Nevermind. Tried one of the 2.0 cables. Works great.

    Is anyone able to hear any difference between the different filters? If I hear any difference it's very subtle. That also goes for DSD512 and DSD1024 remastering.

    It's also interesting that the PCM upsampling fiters like Bitperfect+, Gibbs Transient Optimised, etc also work under the 2 DSD remastering modes. Is this the way it's intended?

    I do wonder if the PCM filters can be applied in conjunction with the DSD remastering function.

    If you upsample a nonDSD file to DSD512/1024, iDSD first oversamples to 705.4/768kHz. None of the filters applies in those 2 modes. You can turn the knob, and may appears that you are switching digital filters, but they are not doing anything.

    If you play a native DSD file, iDSD will only play it in bitperfect mode. If you upsamples a native DSD file to DSD512/1024, there is no bitperfect mode because a digital filter has to be applied.

    hello, did some try USB 3.0 instead of 2.0,

    USB 3.0 is much faster than USB 2.0, I did not find it useful to use ipurifier 2
