Amarra 4/Weiss Minerva


Recommended Posts

I compared Weiss DAC2, the ugly box version of the Minerva, to the Sonic Studio model 4 and found the model 4 clearly superior.

I had a specialist cable manufacturer make a TLS to rca set of my favoured cables for me following the guide in the manual (leaving the ring open circuit rather than shorted to the sleeve)

This works fine.

"Try the Weiss's bigger brother the 202 , it is. better dac than the ULN8"

 

As far as I know, the Weiss 202 cost $6495 in the US, whereas the Amarra 4 and the Metric Halo LIO-8 cost $3995 retail, the latter of which can be easily found for $3500.

 

One would hope it's better to justify such a price difference (here in the US).

I got a cable made for the monitor output (TRS) others have used a custom D25 to RCA cable with as many outputs as they wish to use, for example using the AM4 as a crossover for active speakers.
