In Reply to: RE: I also found SACD better than the DSD equivalent posted by akltam on April 03, 2017 at 07:15:00
That's what I am hearing too. Thank you. USB connection is not good, as you say it is difficult when you add too much software and hardware in the mix with USB.
I always find USB to sound dull, regardless of file. With Linux, Apple and Microsoft all of them.
And CD rips sound different with different Drives, don't know if Ripping is the best way to acquire Music.
When I compared Downloads to equivalent SACD, preferred Z1 over 5400ES.
2x DSD is IT for me, don't think I'll graduate to 4x or higher due to cost constraints.
McIntosh D150, w/Ifi suite of USB products sounds much better than any other DSD Dac I've heard.
Haven't heard them all, by any stretch.
I just installed a Soekris DAC for a friend. It has both USB input and Coaxial input.
And Coaxial has an CD source through SPDIF, the Coaxial input from CD is more lifely.
You see, for the same DAC, the CD source sound even better. The USB is hires, the CD is Low-Res. But the CD sound better.
I could not believe my ears.
