so, China vs. Mal-Asia ??


"The overwhelming majority [of audiophiles] have very little knowledge, if any, about the most basic principles and operating characteristics of audio equipment. They often base their purchasing decisions on hearsay, and the preaching of media sages. Unfortunately, because of commercial considerations, much information is rooted in increasing revenue, not in assisting the audiophile. It seems as if the only requirements for becoming an "authority" in the world of audio is a keyboard."

The Malaysia version is taller and more substantial looking.  There is a very good chance that it would not only perform more reliably long term , but sound BETTER despite putting out the same 1s and 0s  originally.:P


How a Digital Audio file sounds, or a Digital Video file looks, is governed to a large extent by the Power Supply area. All that Identical Checksums gives is the possibility of REGENERATING the file to close to that of the original file.

What's the story here? Is one of them a fake, or is it simply a case of the manufacturer having switched motor supplier at some point?

The latter is what it looks like to me...

Judging the sound quality by the appearance of gear and/or component?  We all know that different DACs using the same chip have different sound quality, so I guess the appearance is not a critical factor though it will make some one lose confidence in the sound quality of the gear.
