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

Color your DAC to align with your preference

As I mentioned before in a much older post....

Many modern DACs sound outstanding and very similar with only slight differences. It's not usually a matter of one being so much better than the rest.

When a DAC stands out as being far superior to the rest it's because this outlier leans heavily in alignment with your specific sonic preferences. I would assert that your love affair with the Ayon Skylla and Stratos is likely due to their vacuum tube analog stages. Nothing wrong with that if you like that tube sound.

Others prefer less color or possibly coloring their system with a different component like an outboard preamp, power amp, or speakers.
