DU-U8 Or Eitr for ios/tidal source? Can i use DU-U8 to send usb signal to multiple dacs..say one by coax, one by optical?
yes, you can send AES/EBU to the V800, coax to another and optical to the third. It's a great device.
Cool! Huge adv over the eitr! Can you rec any short aes/ebu cables? Is it just a male to female xlr cable? I haven’t ventured into those yet
No, AES/EBU cables have an impedance of 110 Ohms. You can't use any XLR cable. What region are you from? EU? Then Forza or CustomCans maybe or Toxic. Plenty to choose from. Or just go Thomann and buy a pro audio cable. They are good enough.

Just wondering if anyone knows if the Australian distributor of Violectric or Lake People has changed?
How does the V800 stack up to say a Schiit Gungnir Multibit?
Different animals.. DS vs R2R... both good dacs I hear, I have interest in both!
Is the V800 still a good purchase in 2018? I'm looking for a desktop DAC under £1K and wondeing if there are better alternatives today?
I researched this recently so you’re in luck! V800 is older technology - better, more modern pick is Lake People RS06, the cost reduced V850.
Can confirm. RS06 is an outstanding DAC with great extension and definition. No glare, clean, hard hitting bass and overall clarity. Doesn't suffer from digititus which imho is the first "feature" that kills a DAC for me.
Can't say anything about the V850 though in comparison.
Damn that thing's ugly! :-/
I'm reading good things about the Qutest and while I don't really like it's form factor I'd be willing to consider it, if it sounds better than the V800?
I don't think the RS06 comes with USB as standard, seems even 24/96 is an extra €149. Making it only slightly less than a clearence V800 with 24/192 xmos usb (€950 on eBay)
Is the RS06 sound noticeably improved over the V800?
