    Who are you? The rumour police? And just because you don't care I should too?
    Don't think so.

    Oh come on, I was just kidding. Sheese.

    So on to talk about listening:

    I have had the Gumby on for a good 30 hours and it is settling in quite nicely, I have a few other dacs but nothing of this quality. I was immediately impressed with songs I knew very well like some old Van Morrison and Alan Parsons. I am hearing slight nuances that I had not heard before.

    I am running the Gumby through a Freya to a NAD Power amp into some Martin Logan and Polk Audio speakers with a Klipsch sub and the sound is certainly impressive. On the headphone side I have the Freya outputting into various Schiit tube amps as well as dual Nuforce Class A amps and a highly modified Bottlehead Crack that I painstakingly tuned to my preferences.

    Actually I am from the Rumor Police and I'm going to have to ask you to pull over your post and place your hands on the sides of your keyboard and keep them there ...
  6. earChasm
    You can't. Rumour is out of your jurisdiction, and since I'm not crossing over to rumor you got nothing...
  7. RCBinTN
    Well, why don't we ask the DAC expert himself?
    Dear Mike @Baldr if you're out there, can you please chime in for these folks...

    Thanks, in anticipation -

    Hello everyone &

    I’m writing to ask for advice. I have an opportunity to buy a used Gumby, with USB 2. I understand I can purchase the USB upgrade for $100, $150 factory installed. If I choose to go through with this, will I come up short in any way, relative to the purchase of a new unit?

    If you can ... buy a new one .. that is what I would do ... Especially now we know that schiit can tweak products during the model's life ... A new unit would be the best you can get

    I agree with JerryLeeds BUT! It depends on how much that 2nd hand Gumby costs and the strengt of your wallet.

    If you use the optical or coaxial input than USB 5 is pretty much a moot point.
  13. earChasm
    Well, that's true for sure. I got USB5 but use COAX anyway because my brain thinks it sounds better :.b

    I'm with you. It's much closer with Gen 5, but I still reckon coax has an edge
