I know im coming over as a negative whiney old git but just to clarify i am a negative whiney old git.
It it me, or is John arguing with himself.
I think everybody recognise the MDac as a good product, and have only commented on your posts. I may have missed something its getting quite surreal.
When one rabid anti AVI poster leaves the forum, do they nominate a successor ?

I wander of for a couple of beers and a bit of supper and it all kicks off, hugely amusing.
In my experience ADMs are an excellent, one box (well two actually) solution for someone with a simple setup who wants a fuss free system, but what that has to do with JDs system passes me by.
What I would be interested in is if anyone else has experimented with the digital volume on the M-dac or knows something about how it works.
The suggestion that it is audible, given that the processor is running at 32 bit resolution, strikes me as odd, very simple calculations show that it can not have an effect on the sound quality by the reduction in bit depth alone, so if the differences are real and can be heard, them something else is going on.
We do so many shows in a row,
And these towns all look the same,
We just pass the time in our hotel room
And wander 'round backstage,
Till the lights come up, and we hear that crowd,
And we remember why we came.
I'm sure the person that brought them up could explain.
Mac mini > AVI ADM9Ts
No, they don't attack in orchestrated packs like the pro AVI brigade! Seriously, because someone doesn't agree with the AVI propaganda, doesthat make them rabid, or merely discriminating.,
Have you got a M-dac and passion and tried for yourself.
JW the designer of the M-dac understands and agrees with me and is building his new power amp to adjust its sensitivity as the volume on the m-dac is turned up and down so that the M-dac is always running full resolution.
I can hear the difference so can JW.
If you read the M-dac thread over on PFM JW helps and updates M-dacs he also makes or tells them how to make inline attenuators so guys can use higher volume settings on the M-dac because it sounds better that way.
The sound going through my passive only passes through 2 resistors same as using attenuators.
You make it sound like the retail product isn't properly finished.
Unlike the ADM 9.0 9.1 9.1T 9.1RS 9.1RSS, obviously.
It seems this was the post that engineered the unnecessary derailing of this thread.
