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

RE: Are`DACs with the ESS Sabre the best DACs?

Well, I just sold my Mac MCD500, right here on AA in fact.

You can find my posts regarding my experience with the MCD1100...really liked it but the differences between it and the MCD500 did not justify the price differential.

Very recently I had the Wyred 4 Sound dac-2 in my home being fed by a heavily modded VRDS-25, very nice sounding, not in the same league as the Mac, but very nice.

Here's the catch - had the Lessloss dac in the house for a few days while the Wyred was here...um...no comparison. If you're in this hobby for music, the PCM1704 and PCM1702 multibit dacs are just too special to ignore.

If we're going to debate gear and that's what it's about for you, then the point will be for nothing...if we're going to talk about music being reproduced by gear and which gear does that the best, then I would strongly suggest you invest some time in hearing a number of dacs and players with the chips I've mentioned.

Find yourself a Denon DCD-S10 MKII...and just listen!!!
