  1. Your "dac1", isn't that a Khadas Tone Board Dac that you have put into your own box?
  2. Don't send yourApple Pie DAC to amir the great, he will turn it into applesauce. ?
  3. The pi shares the bus between USB and Ethernet, far from an ideal situation. The Hats connect via I2s from the Pi so you solve the shared bus problem. The DigiOne also re clocks and send a very clean super low jitter SPDIF signal to the DAC. Further improvement can be had by using a linear power supply.
  4. Bang for the buck front end and DAC: Raspberry Pi - Allo DigiOne driving a Modi-Multibit.

  6. Yes. Just like your perspective on class D... myopic. If you are able, maybe try and listen.
  7. Really? Yahama NS1000, Celestion SL600s, SL700s, Just three that IMO can preform with current speakers. There are many more.
  8. Sorry if I was not clear enough. I have multiple systems, different rooms, setups, etc. The systems with the delta-sigma dacs sounds better imo than pcm when up-sampled to dsd 128 or 256, I cannot do 512.
  9. I do not like it better, but I also up-sample to higher rate DSD with the D-S dac I own. Doing this brings other system considerations into play though, cpu power, electrical noise etc.
  10. You forgot to mention the nuclear button on your desk.
  11. I agree, there are always priorities and choices.
  12. How can you stand listening to such high distortion Tang band and Dayton drivers? Does it keep you up at night? I will give you a bit of my feeling. In listening to the Schiit multi-bit vs delta-sigma I hear superb information retrieval accompanied by a more natural presentation. Sounds real, something missing imo from most D-S dacs I have owned. You know trying it won't kill you. Ultimately you can disagree, but at least you can form a fully valid opinion. Unless you really don't care and just enjoy being annoying.
  13. They sell DACs on the premise audibility characteristics. But all of a sudden they could not hear changes to the distortion profiles of the DAC? If something that is clearly measured isn't audible, how about the rest of the differences? More written distortion. How about an honest original thought please? Oscilloscope OCD! Something new for the the ICD-10.
  14. But distorting facts, is ok? If you have not listened, how do you know that you would hear it?
  15. So you are not actually interests in listening to music, but just looking at audio measurements. lol Oh and btw the computer noise comment is total BS. Someone tried to explain it on the clown board and he was abused, which is par for the course over there.
  16. Hi, It does not matter to you or I, or probable anyone else with a functional brain, but the great tester in chief called the fire department and had them hose down the DAC!
  17. "Some appliances, such as vacuum cleaners and electric drills, do not have an earth wire. This is because they have plastic casings, or they have been designed so that the live wire can not touch the casing. As a result, the casing cannot give an electric shock, even if the wires inside become loose." http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/gcsebitesize/science/edexcel_pre_2011/electricityworld/mainselectricityrev4.shtml The key word is designed.

  18. Hi Chris, Someone checked a picture of another DAC same model and it only had a 2 wire socket. Maybe they had stock of 3 wire IECs or punched panel prior to finalizing the design. Or who knows exactly why... But to assume that the manufacture is just being negligent is pretty clueless IMO.
  19. Here is is quote: "Immediately though, there is a major source of concern. Check out the IEC plug: We have a 3-prong, grounded IEC socket but the ground lug doesn't go anywhere! It must be connected to the case as this is metal and an electrical short can energize it. Only a double insulated piece of equipment can be run on two wires. Which this is not. This is a major safety flaw! I can't recommend purchasing this equipment on this basis!" The red herring comment regarding the insulated wire touching the circuit board comes later.
  20. The CV is one of a manager, not technical and it shows when he struggles with relativity simple technical tasks. You can worship him as much as you want but when you carry his mostly clueless junk to the real world you will be challenged. His recent foolishness of claiming the Emotiva DC-1 is dangerous because of the unused ground tap on the AC socket was pretty stupid when the unit is normally a UN-grounded 2 wire unit. Pure amateur assumption to think just because the AC input has a unused tab the manufacture must be incompetent. He has a issue with business success, due to his lack of success.
  21. Sounds amazing, lol... but there are facts and then there is fiction. Handing someone a scalpel does not make them a surgeon.
  22. You do not realize this but all this testing is being done by a relative incompetent. There is no real correlation to sound quality. But keep measuring if it makes you boys happy. As far as the Schiit product bashing goes it not based in reality, but just a creation by an unhappy few.
