  1. I used Weiss DAC202 for a while. But it didn't support DSD. As you know we can upgrade DAC202 to support DSD file (via USB). But Weiss already launch INT204. So, Which one can provide more better sound between Upgrade DAC202 to support DSD (via USB) or Buy INT204 and connect to DAC202 via AES/EBU I'm still waiting your suggestion, Thank you
  2. The Weiss INT202 is a digital interface that converts Firewire to AES/EBU or S/PDIF. I've used this with my Mac computer that I've used as a digital front-end. My DAC accepted AES/EBU so that is how I used the Weiss. I've compared the Weiss INT202 to the very best USB interfaces and the Weiss came out on top. Comes with original box and manual. In excellent condition! Features of the INT202 (From the Weiss Website): Two Firewire 400 sockets. Firewire 800 can be connected using an adapter cable. Can be powered from the Firewire bus or from the included power supply (or external PSU). Two XLR output sockets Two RCA output sockets Operates up to 192kHz sampling rate Single wire operation at sampling rates of 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 or 192 kHz Dual wire operation at sampling rates of 176.4 or 192 kHz Infrared remote control (optional) for volume and absolute phase Volume control is dithered to avoid quantization distortion Bit transparency check feature for testing the computer player software Like new condition - absolutely no scratches, perfect working condition I am the first owner. Non-smoking environment. This offer includes: - Weiss INT202 with power supply - Oyaide NEO Firewire cable 2.0m - Original box and manual - Original SMPSU. When I purchased it, the retail price was $1,885. Current prices (if you buy new today): Weiss INT202: USD $1,267 Oyaide FW cable: ca. USD $130 Total $1,397 Asking: USD $750 (Save $647) Payment: Paypal or bank transfer Free shipping in continental U.S. Paypal purchasers, add 3%.
  3. Hello everyone! You'll notice this is my first post, so apologies if I have picked the wrong forum! So many questions… Never mind I'm not even a native speaker. I'm new to computer audio, and feel that before I pick a USB- (or FireWire-) interface/converter and player software, I have one fundamental decision to make first: whether or not to add a master clock to my system. I'm the proud first owner of the latest versions of dCS Delius DAC (v. 2.13) and Purcell Upsampler (v. 1.25), without 1394-interfaces (no DSD upsampling or playback, but up to 24/192 via Dual AES). I say proud because after some tweaking (cables, fuses etc.), I've been happy ever since (and same as my audiophile dealer at the time, later dCS incarnations never seemed to surpass a well set-up and tweaked system using the "old" models). I mainly listen to CDs from a Sonic Frontiers SFT-1 CD-Transport (again tweaked - friends who brought along transports for comparison by CLC and Mark Levinson left the building with their heads hanging, the former actually wanted to buy mine, much more air, spaciousness, deeper bass, detail, resolution etc.), setting Purcell to upsample to 24/192 Dual AES. In short, no word clock, and yet, happy with the sound quality. Legendary Spectral DMA-200 Class A monster (in the adjacent room because of fan noise) driven direct (no preamp) with extremely wide-band cabling (same as used for all AES-EBU connections, Swiss aerospace subcontractor, best I've ever tried regardless of price category, irreplaceable since never marketed for audio purposes, plus got it for free, merely paid for connectors and assembly - but now sorely stuck with what I have, since my contact changed jobs). Speakers are my own, with time alignment and my own phase-coherent filters. Sound quality is subjective. But let me tell you this: I've suffered from migraine triggered by glaring light or sound since my teens. I can listen all day long to digital thanks to dCS upsampling. Told them, too, but they won't quote freaks in the marketing of their products… My computer audio experience is limited to trying a Trends UD-10.1 with and without battery power supply (since rewrapped and -packaged to keep it from collecting dust) with MAX and PLAY on a MacBook G4 once, as well as eavesdropping on other people's systems. Been thinking about adding computer audio to my system lately (having spent weeks lying on my back due to a lumbago). Not sure I want to spend too much money on it, though. Then again, unless it's good (= beware of my understatements!), I won't use/listen to it. I'm a Mac guy, as yet undecided whether to pimp a MacBook Pro (8 or 16 GB RAM and 120 GB SSD) or Mini Mac (several accessible, like the idea of using a pre-2010 because of their external DC PSU, which could easily be replaced with something more serious, e.g. Core Audio or Paul Hynes). The good part is, I haven't even started yet, so all suggestions are welcome! Now to my questions - the fundamental decision I need to make is, do I want to use the word clock ability of my dCS: 1. If not: need to pick an interface/converter and player software to fit my system without clocking (e.g. Weiss INT202, Yellowtec PUC2 Lite, SOtM, Empirical Audio Off-Ramp etc.). FireWire makes more sense with Macs, but the decision ultimately depends on sound quality alone. 2. If yes: need to a) find a studio master clock with 3 wordclock outputs (BNC preferred), at least 1 of which must be individually adjustable (by halves/fourths) within each "family" (e.g. 44.1 to 88.2 kHz and 48 to 96 kHz) because of the requirements of Dual AES (i.e. dCS Puccini U-Clock won't work, but e.g. Antelope Isochrone OSX would), and b) pick an interface/converter and player software to fit my system with external master clocking (e.g. Weiss AFI1, M2Tech Evo etc.). The latter (external system master clock) seems the technically speaking "neat solution" (how Swiss of me…), and yet, Daniel Weiss tells me my dCS gear may be so good at extracting the clock signal from an AES source without external clocking that it may not be worth it. (If dCS gear were indeed invulnerable in this respect, I wonder why CD-transports sound so different in my system…) I'm also concerned that the resident "Computer Audiophile" Chris appears to have had negative experiences using the Antelope Isochrone OSX with dCS gear. My dCS use VCXOs (voltage-controlled oscillators), and while I may be able to afford myself a studio master clock using OCXO (oven clock), any truly superior, e.g. atomic, clock is simply out of my reach right now (guess why I have so much time on my hands listening to music these days…). Anyone gone down this path who could give me some pointers? Thanks in advance! Greetings from Switzerland, David.
  4. Hi I used Weiss DAC202 for a while. But it didn't support DSD. As you know we can upgrade DAC202 to support DSD file (via USB). But Weiss already launch INT204. So, Which one can provide more better sound between (no budget concern) - Upgrade DAC202 to support DSD (via USB) or - Buy INT204 and connect to DAC202 via AES/EBU I'm still waiting your suggestion, Thank you
  5. This was bought from a dealer just a few months ago and is in like new condition. Comes with all the original box and materials. This is the firewire version Asking: $4100 shipped to anywhere in CONUS. Buyer pays shipping outside CONUS. Also, please add 3.5% if paying by Paypal. References: I have 100% positive feedback on Audiogon, Astromart, eBay and FredMiranda under the username anilveena.
  6. I have today discovered that I could update my Weiss Minerva dac by having a Ethernet interface installed. That will turn it into a renderer. This has been available since 2015 and I am ashamed to admit that I have only discovered it today. The same product is also available for some of their other products. Has anyone here done the upgrade? If so any views?
  7. The DAC501 is Weiss Engineering's new state of the art D/A Converter with an unprecedented level of sophistication and versatility. With the DAC501 Weiss is creating a new paradigm for what used to be a black box device. A typical D/A Converter is a "set and forget" device. Not so with the DAC501. It adds a number of interesting signal processing features and sports a variety of digital inputs. Balanced, unbalanced and headphone outputs are provided. Weiss Engineering has a 30 year history in D/A Converter design. In that time span they have learned a thing or two about converter design. The DAC501 is the essence of their experiences. FEATURES Inputs AES/EBU or S/PDIF via XLR, Toslink and RCA UPnP / DLNA (via Ethernet) USB Accepted formats: PCM 44.1kHz up to 384 kHz, DSD 64x / 128x Future formats can be accommodated for via software updates Outputs Line out unbalanced on RCA connector Line out balanced on XLR connector Headphone out on 1/4" Jack Analogue One of the latest 32 bit D/A Converter chips is used Discrete output stages for both line and headphone outputs Signal Processing The DSP algorithms can be different depending on which output is selected (line or headphone). Some DSP algorithms have to work differently if they are used for headphones in comparison to speakers. Creative Equalizer - A tone control with low boost/cut, high boost/cut and mid boost/cut. Very useful to correct those recordings which do not quite fit your taste. De-Essing - The automatic removal of overly bright sibilances from human voices. The sibilance effect can be more or less pronounced depending on your speakers or room acoustics. Constant Volume - Adjusts the audio volume (loudness) to a constant value across all tracks played. Useful for "party mode" when the volume control should stay untouched. Vinyl Emulation - Get that special sonic character of a record player based playback chain. Crosstalk Cancelling (XTC) - For the playback of dummy head recordings or live recordings via speakers for an incredible live sensation. (For speaker based playback only.) Out Of Head Localization algorithm - Tries to get the music "out of your head" when listening via headphones. The goal is to achieve a similar listening sensation as one gets when listening via speakers. (For headphone based playback only.) The DAC501 is operated via the rotary encoder control on the faceplate, the touch sensitive color LCD display or the IR remote control. Some additional settings can be done via a web interface from any computer. Controls The DAC501 is operated via the rotary encoder control on the faceplate, the touch sensitive color LCD display or the IR remote control. Some additional settings can be done via a web interface from any computer. Mechanics The DAC501 has a similar size as the Weiss DAC202 unit. The DAC502 version is a larger size unit, similar to their MAN301 unit. The features of the DAC502 are the same as the ones of the DAC501. We've now begun accepting pre-orders.
