The purpose of this thread is to collect my personal experience with as many $250+ amp/DAC combo's as possible in one place. I will also make comparison charts for more hard fact specifications. The goal is to create a kind of guide for people looking for their first or new amp/DAC combo making it easier to make the correct purchase based on their needs. I'm also hoping that other users will share their experiences with different units as well, the more the merrier The idea is to do a full review of every unit included in the review section of this forum and post a very short pros and cons here as well as include all untis reviewed in the comparison charts already mentioned. I will also make a short breakdown on a few parameters for each unit, in here I'll use a 1-10 as scale because it gives greater felxibility than the 5 star rating used by default in the review section. Some of the units inculded will be typical desktop units while other will be highly portable and other yet will probably be hybrids between the two extremes. Some will be brand new offerings while other might be well regarded older products. This thread, given its nature, will be a constant work in progress. To get things started I've finished a couple of reviews already and I've made arrangements to review quite a few more units, some of them has already arrived and more will arrive in the next couple of weeks. I will publish a review list of items waited to be reviewed in here as soon as they're 100% confirmed. Suggestions for products is very welcome.
