RE: More Schiit reviews? Probably not...

JA's measurements showed distortion of low level signals due to truncation of 24-bit signals to 20-bit ones - this was apparent in both the time domain and frequency domain. It is really a question of semantics - the DAC chips used are undoubtedly state-of-the-art for their intended purpose so the questions becomes, is the use of the word 'obsolete' in terms of applying a 20-bit converter to a world that moved to 24-bits some years ago inappropriate?

Anyway, the review was excellent and the measurements told the truth. The words 'cup' 'storm and 'tea' spring to mind.
