New high resolution SACD releases, players and technology.

RE: Fiio BTA30

I AM LOATHE TO ADMIT THIS, and my ears must be deceiving me because of the low volume levels, but there is zero difference between this 130 euro DAC and the DAC in my 3,000 euro CD player.

It doesn't stop there. The RCA between CD and amp cost me 600e to make and is pure silver shielded with pure silver RCA connectors. The Coax to DAC is a 30e OFC cable and the RCA from DAC to amp cost me a whole 30e to make with pure copper cable and gold plated copper RCA plugs. My CD power cable is an OCC silver plated affair with silver plated plugs.

The DAC power cable is a USB C frickin cable.

I'm at sea. I HATE TO ADMIT how outrageously good this little DAC is thats smaller than my hand. (and that's small)

Honestly, this thing is off the chart good. I need a few hours at high volume levels to really hear if anything breaks up/rolls off, but so far so good.

For reference, I am listening at 47dB @ 800W.
