wifi nano iDSD Vs Emotiva Stealth DC-1


Recommended Posts

Before I purchased the ifi NANO I read a lot of positive posts about it, now I'm thinking about going up (I Think) to the Emotiva Stealth DC-1. Thoughts please. Opp's typo in title I can't seem to edit out.

 

Not heard a Nano.

 

The Stealth is a very nice sounding, well conceived, well put together DAC. Don't think you would go wrong with it.

And always keep in mind: Cognitive biases, like seeing optical illusions are a sign of a normally functioning brain. We all have them, it’s nothing to be ashamed about, but it is something that affects our objective evaluation of reality.

Thank You for the reply. It has a preamp in it and I have purchased the parasound 2100 classic preamp so I feel like I may be wasting some more having two preamps. I know it sounds crazy.

The Stealth works great as a DAC/pre-amp. Then again, you aren't obligated to use it that way. The remote control I think will sway you into using it for volume control.

Thanks but wouldn't I be at an advantage using my Parasound preamp?

I don't know there will be lots of difference either way. If you have it, see what suits you best of course. I think DACs have gotten so good there just isn't much difference. You could try something that is a DAC only and keep the pre, and I doubt you would benefit. If you have reason to use the sub out on the Parasound then that is a plus worth having. Even Parasound only has a DAC/headphone/pre in their lineup.

Looks like I jumped too soon on the Parasound 2100 classic preamp I should have got the Zdac v2. Ya live and ya learn
