If I buy an Elyse or other DAC, I will have to find a new streamer/renderer. Microrendu is obvious candidate. What I am interested in is a comparison of the the MWTP dac (that is what MW upgraded/modded after all) and the Elysse (and other newer dacs).
To expand the question a bit: I have read from many sources that there has been a huge improvement in DAC quality over the last 5 years (and definitely since I bought my MWTP in 2008). I have heard a few good ones (Schiit Yggy, PS Audio, Lumin, Benchmark 2, the Elysse) but always with very different gear than what I own. It will also be hard for me to demo new dacs as doing so will require buying a new streamer (except for hybrids like PSA, Lumin), which I do not want to commit to unless or until I decide to get a new DAC. What I am really wondering is, how has the MWTP met the test of time? It was great in 08, how does it stack up now? Vs. Elysse (I accept that it is better, but how and how much?) and other comparable dacs.
Any input will be much appreciated.
