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

RE: Color your DAC to align with your preference

"Or...it is simply far superior. You seem to conveniently ignore the most obvious possibility."

Or as I already mentioned the DAC is simply an outlier that aligns more precisely with your specific sonic preference. You can't ignore that possibility especially since your "far superior" sounding DAC utilizes vacuum tubes. Are we back to the age old debate of vacuum tubes vs solid-state? I can add some color and soundstage with a nice vacuum tube preamp and thoroughly enjoy the sound (I've done it) but I would simply call it different and not necessarily far superior.

Better or far superior is hard to define in recent DACs and more about personal preference. State of the art design elevates many modern DACs to be excellent compared to just a few short years ago. One no longer needs to buy pricey audiophile branded DACs to achieve outstanding sonics.
