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


I've been following this thread and feel compelled to interject here. Earlier in the thread you wrote this: "If you look at many of the good major and minor DAC manufactures out there the to chip of choice seems to be the ESS. There must be a reason..." Now, you write this: "I would think Burr Brown has a very large or maybe the largest market share, but this fact does not make it the best sounding." It seems that you are trying to have it both ways. You cannot on the one hand cite the popular use of the ESS DACs as evidence for their superiority, then deny the same such evidence when someone cites the greater popularity of the Burr-Brown DACs. Such anecdotal citations are, of course, specious either way.

It strikes me that you make an effort to belittle the comments of others in this thread. Perhaps, you are just trying to be provocative, but, so far, you have presented your own opinions as fact without anything approaching convincing substantiation, or even reasonable argument. That's fine by itself, we all often casually do that here. Your trouble begins when you then ridicule others for having their own such opinions. You appear to recognize the truth that having a strongly held opinion doesn't alone equate to being correct when others express theirs, but I wonder why you don't seem to recognize this same truth when you express your own?
