Thoughts on a bunch of DACs (and why delta-sigma kinda sucks, just to get you to think about stuff)

    nice. interested to hear about your mods. I want to work on my 700 after giving it a few weeks of stock listening time.

    Guys, please take the DBT discussion to Sound Science, rather than polluting this thread with it.

    That sounds like a lot of conditions but all those are quite generic nowadays. E.g. here you have 7-8 choices from one company only http://marantz.co.uk/uk/products/pages/productlisting.aspx?catid=networkproducts&subcatid=avreceiver .. nice silver cases, more inputs than anyone needs, warm sound and except the latest 7009 all under $1000.

    There are probably hundreds if not thousands of components that fit all your above criteria ... how do you choose?

    My apologies.

    I Have to agree.

    This is an
    Subjective impressions thread,
    So subjective impressions rule ..

    Many dac impression posts here are quality comparisons And the experience of users is invaluable to us.

    In my opinion DBT (especially in this thread) is utter polution And the reasons posted to disregard it was enlightening so now that the moderator has spoken we can put this behind us..

    My current favorite DACs are the ones in my two main systems: Wavelength Crimson (head fi rig) and Kora Hermes II (dedicated 2-channel rig.)  The Kora is an old girl and only 16/44 compatible, but I'll eat my hat if anything else sounds as smooth, full and wonderful.  Plus it looks great.  [​IMG]

    Well of course but there is nothing wrong with seeking out people who seem to have preferences very close to yours. Lucky for me I have heard quite a few of the DACS Purrin reviewed and I had close to the same conclusions. Also his stated sound preferences mirror mine. But yeah if you read Purrin's or anyone's, for that matter, posts and you have different preferences than him then his list would be totally useless to you. Personally Purrin has saved me alot of money though lol.

    I'm all for hearing from those with similar preferences and even those with different ones.  I wouldn't be reading this thread if I didn't.  [​IMG]

    Short length of one foot or less. Just the hot and cold. I don't bother with ground. A real AES3 cable has a shield - probably needs to traverse 10-30ft. You are inside a home, so should be fine.
    I like Mogami for interconnects or internal wiring. I like CAT 5 (TPs paralleled up) for speaker cables.

    Do you double them up? How many cables per speaker?
    A few years ago there was a brief trend in desktop gear that used regular RJ45 connections between amps and speakers (mostly Taiwanese I think). I kinda miss that as it was quite convenient and far slimmer than binding posts or speakon jacks.

    Just one - for tweeters. I biamp. Lampcord, leftover cable, whatever I can find, or something cheap for woofers.
