Upsamplers, DACs, jitter, shakes and analogue withdrawals, this is it.

RE: Apt description-Typical

Actually, most of the best dacs don't use the sabre. My personal favorites use Burr Brown. My favorites are the Arc Dac 8 and the Naim nDac. I had a Minimax here for a while and thought it was fine for the money, but spend more and you get more. I believe the Weiss's also use Burr Brown. I have also liked the sound of some Wolfson based days such as the PS Audio.
I am very curious about the Centrum Octave, which does not use a conventional dac chip at all... And it comes in about $1000.
