Etherregen or Matrix x-spdif?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I haven't had any luck finding folks who have compared the effects on their dacs between using the Matrix X-SPDIF 2 and the etherregen, assuming that the 

dac accepts both inputs like the PS Audio DS. 


I previously used the usb input to PSA dac using an Uptone USB Regen with LPS-1 power supply, but got better sound quality when I went with ethernet. 


Does anyone know of any direct comparisons?

I can’t answer that, but Steve from Empirical Audio feels that with his products the ethernet regenerator gives a better sound than his Offramp which converts to USB to SPDIF connection.
