So folks, 😉
back to a little bit “Hi-Fi” again.. 😉
according to this list (interesting, have a look)->https://parttimeaudiophile.com/2021/05/15/the-best-dacs-servers-streamers-and-disc-spinners-buyers-guide-summer-2021/
the Schiit Modi 3+ (Multibit) should be the best in this price-range..(99$/249$)->(https://www.schiit.com/products/modi-1)
we had here THD-lists (“Sinad”) from audioscenereview->(https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/review-and-measurements-of-new-topping-d50s-dac.7914/) in which the Schiits were also in the top)
question is now (because they use in 80% of their products “AKM-chips”) and as i always said and read again and again, these AKMs (“Velvet”-sound) were not so transparent + airy like our phenomenal ES-Sabre-chips..
so best would be to test one of them in comparison to some ES-Sabre-gear; we´ll see..
also interesting is that there is “a new player” in these DA-market->”Analog Devices“..I/we know that they had made very good DA-chips in the very beginning of this era + also have a very high “distinction” in the hi-fi-world in general..
The Schiit 3+ Multibit uses an Analog Devices “AD5547”->have to test them also against some sabre´s..
(it would be very nice, if someone can post his experiences with one of the Schiits oder ADs in the comment-section !!)
more to come, greets for now !! 😉
