RE: Not For Me It Isn't.........

Posted by John Elison on October 23, 2021 at 12:15:58:

Yeah, the BTR5 is not something I would want, either. Like you, I also prefer autonomous players. Additionally, I prefer AKM DACs instead of ESS DACs. My Brooklyn Bridge has ES9028Pro DACs and it doesn't sound as good as either of my FiiO players with AKM DACs.

It's unfortunate that AKM DACs are no longer available due to a fire at the AKM factory. I hope it's not permanent because I think AKM DAC chips are the very best DACs ever. ;-)

Best regards,
John Elison
