RE: Schiit DACs don't do DSD. nt

Ending up with DSD music then liking an R2R DAC down the road is inconceivable?

I run this setup now:

HQPlayer on a Mac Mini->router->microRendu->DAC

I don't like the complexity (there are six boxes counting power supplies, NOT counting the DAC) and the fact that no matter what you do to a Mini or any other computer, it's still not ideal as a music server.

The Schiit sounds better playing DSD recordings as PCM than does any DSD DAC near its price range I know of.

(There is very, very little DSD material that was not converted to PCM at some point in mastering, of course.)
