Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

RE: Best processors -but best tech ? Accurate info???

I didn't read every reply, but in your original post, you left out the PS Audio Directstream DACs, that use FPGAs and have made firmware updates available at no charge. That can't be cheap, especially when you consider the man hours it took to program.

I thought DCS had created their own proprietary Ring DAC,not using an off the shelf dac? And I just looked at the Chord website, they use FPGAs too. So, I think some of your info is not correct. How they implement those FPGAs is beyond my technical understanding. Chord says the Dave has a million lines of code.

I will say that with many companies using the same chips, it comes down to implementation, and the all important analog side. But as with most audio gear, the fancy case is the single most expensive individual part.
