In stock form...would this dac be considered organic and analog sounding? Thanks.
@rajacat,I am interested in this DAC as well. earlier in your first post you were also considering the Holo Spring dac. Could you elaborate what made you choose the MP-D2 over the Holo ? Understand that the Holo cost much more in the stock form but does the MP-D2 sounds better than the Holo with all the upgrades ? Has anybody compared the Holo to the MP-D2 ?
Interesting design. I wonder what the design center is since it is supporting numerous different types of tubes that have different optimum plate voltages, and bias. I wonder if it's a cathode follower output stage. I wonder if the output capacitor is tweakable because what appears to be binding posts that hold the leads of the capacitor.Looks like a whole lot of fun!Best,Anand.
Let us know if it raises them enough. If you e-mail Garry at MP he may know.
Yes, a socket saver easily raises this big bulb RCA 5R4 high enough to clear the cover.
Hi, JackD.It doesn't matter where it's coming from. So long as it's audiophile level, it's taxed at 21% and they keep records of who brings in what just in case someone gets the clever idea of importing goods for resale without a license. Customs did a good enough job of making me feel uncomfortable with their questions regarding the Fritz speakers I had shipped over that I want to avoid going that route if at all possible. There are a couple different floorstanding speakers that I crave (Daedalus, Salk), but bringing them across the Pacific Pond would incur two to three thousand dollars in shipping and another three-plus thousand in import duties with QUESTIONS! It makes monitors packed in closed cell foam cocoons very attractive. Heck, I just brought my Don Sachs Model 2 preamp over and it sounds wonderful. As far as Don knows, it's the only one in Taiwan - for now. Michael
This is incorrect statement! I currently have two MP-D2s on hand in Taipei office. One shipped directly from China and the other brought in as a checked luggage from LA. In fact, the checked MP-D2 also came in with my much bigger unopened Microsoft Surface Studio. No tax whatsoever nor did I make any false statement in the custom. The MP-D2 is a nice DAC for it's price that I strongly recommend you buy from China. The courier used by manufacturer will get your MP-D2 at your door anywhere in Taiwan without any charge.
