Thx I book marked sotm, 1200$ sheesh. Look into it more. Hey I’m open to ideas but let me get this straight. Innous-sotm-mscaler-dac. That’s a bunch of bucks to get a signal to the dac. I can’t convince myself on mscaler because I only have a single bnc in my tt...I’m not putting anything down except wow. Antipodes took my enjoyment up to a level I didn’t realize was possible.
I think we are in early days of sorting out what’s necessary what’s add on what’s marketing what actually is unnecessary what can be integrated into a server, a dac, what needs to be stand alone and prices....what will come down.... I’m waiting this out I think. Maybe in a few years with new model release we get this sorted, integrated, and more affordable....
Kenny: Well said; it is the smart thing to do -the waiting game.
The M-Scaler/DAC is a MUST. Simply consider a modest Network Player (Cambridge Audio CXN, or '851' -heck
even a Raspberrry Pi/Odroid -SBC -with 'free' OS) > to Scaler/DAC.
Beyond that, one may wish to consider something like dCs Network Bridge (between source/DAC. And call it a
REVISION: As I read my reply, (above) I'm thinking to myself: "What was I thinking/ saying" ? ) lol
I suspect the precision of the analog waveform recreation is paramount; it's been years since I've spent time with a Chord DAC, but each time there was a remarkable sense of liquidity nuance/finesse, speed and dynamics that resulted in a very clear, open, defined musical 'image'.
At least that's what I think I was thinking...saying !
