I tend to find that most people don't fall for "just buy one". 

Maybe I'm doing something wrong... Smile

I to am a great believer in keeping it brief.

Is that 1000 pound sterling? What else in that range did you compare it to? Oops 2 lines.

The skill is knowing which box to point at.

+1

I'm in the market for DSD USB DAC, it's between the Mytek, Teac UD-501 (if it ever gets to the UK) and the QuteHD.

Here's a bit more, and a little bit more again. It does sound as if it's a bit of a star performer.

There's a review of the QuteHD here. The reviewer makes some comparisons between the Chord and the Mytek.

From my point of view, the leaner sound commented on compared to the Mytek is of concern with my speakers and amp, although it seems the 16bit 44.1khz file playback was preferred on the Chord.

mytek dsd 192 dac vs Calyx Dac 24/192

Hello and good day,

 

I was reading about your comparisons of the Mytek against some others, among those others i have a Calyx DAC 24/192 that i want to sell if the Mytek is a better sounding DAC despite of its DSD capabilities or inputs and outputs and preamp, my main concern is if the mytek sounds better where it competes with the Calyx?

Can you help me?

Best regards  Smile

 

Miguel
