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

RE: Best dac I have ever heard

Actually a good point.

But there was never much debate of bi-polar vs. MOSFET. If there was, it was brief and died-off a long time ago.

The movement (back) to ladder-DACs has been going on for years - and still growing. I suggest this is due to noise dropping, overall, in the processor. Differences can now be heard.

In my piece, I said the 1-bit processor sounded very good - I have heard it. But IMO, the ladder-units sounded more natural inc. longer instrumental decays.

I also questioned the value of extremely-expensive units that use cheap chips and (one) adding a digital volume control.

UPDATE: I found another pure-resistor 'best' -CEC DAO 3.0.
