Some comments about DAC DAC from a Facebook group (ANA)....About pro-audio and high signal levels (voltage):
"....also note that in pro-audio, much higher signal levels are used, making it easy to achieve super high SNR. Why? Because every step in the process adds a little noise. Noise is the enemy of audio. Consumer audio “line level” is 0.45Vpk, and pro is 1.74Vpk. This is almost 12dB higher !!"
[note the DAC DAC full scale output is 4.9Vrms]About DAC DAC features from the 30,000 foot level:
"....They sound nothing short of spectacular! Cherry 130dB+ DAC DAC 2 HS (and HSV version with analog controlled digital attenuation) IS commercially available, and it’s true balanced, DC coupled, double differential, and designed for sonics. They are designed to facilitate direct drive of amplifiers with precise clipping level control. The design has a 1” analog signal path."
"....You might know someone local who owns one as well. Cherry Amp customers tend to be friendly and knowledgeable. They are also proud of their good taste in equipment."About reviews:
"....if you want to know what listeners think of the DAC DAC (any version), take a look at the reviews. Google it or look here:" [link below]
"It's hard to find reviewers that aren't playing the advertising game. This is why we reply on publications like audio beatnik, KSS (pos FB), AV Nirvana, and Home Theater Review for straightforward no-strings-attached reviews. They don't demand compensation as most other's have. There must be at least 20 DAC DAC customer reviews here, plus pro reviews, plus hundreds of amp reviews in there:"https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=127654.0About the TL version:
"We also have a tube like version that emulates tubes without the noise issues that tubes present"About performance:
"124dB and <0.0004% THD+N is the DAC DAC 1 HS
specified performance. The DAC DAC 2 HS goes to 130dB. The design is simple, not burdened with unnecessary features on a device that’s essentially what every DAC should be, digital in, super clean analog out
🙂"About the nature of the design:
"The Cherry DAC DAC was created with SIMPLICITY
in mind. "No bells and whistles", as one might say."
"....I understand your concern with the price, but like I mentioned, we are selling DAC DAC 1 HS/TL demos for super low prices (email Support@DigitalAmp.com for info) due to the new DAC DAC 2 HS/HSV on the scene. We have upgraded MANY DAC DAC 1 units to DAC DAC 2 as a result. The DAC DAC 1 LIST PRICE has been below $1000 for something like a year now, and it competes with DACs costing 10x the price! Maybe you're happy with your built-in DAC, but until you've heard the difference (and yes, there is a NOTICEABLE one) the Cherry DAC can make, you're not aware of the sonic benefits offered. The great measurements only tell half the story. The audio beatnik guy even said this was the first DAC that improved on the one in the Oppo. This means that other attempts to improve on the Oppo's DAC (like the ones mentioned here) have NOT helped, but the Cherry DAC does! "
