Home Computer Audio Asylum

Music servers and other computer based digital audio technologies.

In your experience

In your experience, you may have not gotten the exceptional results that many of us have with computer audio. I dont read that you tried MP, Empirical Audio gear, Wavelength gear, Benchmark DAC-1 USB, or Bel Canto DAC-3.

I get a lot of high-end DAC's in for modding, including Dodson 218 and Bremen #1 as well as CEC, Vecteur and ML #37 transports, so I know what they all sound like, before and after modding. I have also had extensive listening sessions with Reimyo, EMM labs and other $15+ DAC's that I have not modded.

A lot of my customers have sold the above DAC's and Transports and others on Audiogon when they get my computer audio solutions and DAC's in their systems.

My experience and my customers experience with computer audio is much broader than yours. Many of my customers have tried the UD-10, the Transit, the Edirol converters, different PCI cards, the M-Audio Audiophile USB, the Squeezebox, the Sonos and the Olive before they finally came to me.

The point is, you can try a lot of stuff out there that does not sound very good and is tricky to get working and conclude that computer audio is inferior to CD player/transport, or you can try one of the above, who I consider the current sound-quality leaders in this industry.
