RE: What PC audio set up can outperform High end Emmlabs, DCS system?

Sonus Faber, Accuphase A50 and others, separate digital and analog regenerators, Placette Attenuator, Big Ben, UA2192 Class A capacitorless dac, dCS972/954, upsampling to 2 or 4 fs, Lynx AES16 card in system powered by regulated 12V linear supply to PC, RME968 sound card. Large (30m2) listening area. All units in true balanced mode. All cables carefully chosen and digital transmission waveforms monitored. Kimber, i2Digital etc etc. All music uncompressed and carefully ripped

No colouration from non oversampling, transformer coupling, or valves. Yes, I can find euphonic sound by using these. No, I choose to use low distortion components which produces sound as good as vinyl in depth, breadth, height but no noise. Yes I have vinyl too.

No usb audio components due to their problems with hirez and drivers in main system. Yes these things can sound nice but does not come up to grade.
