Decware ZBox tube buffer.
Hi there, I'm looking for a DAC and perhaps a bit of feedback. I do like a little warm tube magic in my music, especially on instruments and vocals. However I also listen to EDM and my system also doubles for home theatre. From past experience, I'm a bit wary that tube will be too soft/rolled-off for HT as well as slow/soft for electronic music. In your experience, how do tube dacs (like Jolida) fair in those situations? Would it be better to get a more neutral DAC and add a tube buffer (like ifi) for better flexibility?I'm running Dynaudio Focus 380s with Mcintosh MC7270 amp, interested in hearing your recommendations. Thanks.
Found this tube dac for sale here on AC.https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=157320.0
Border Patrol makes a great tube DAC that you can take the tube in and out of the circuit. I listen to it more than my Mytek Brooklyn. Hard to beat the sound with the tube in the circuit to my ears. There are lots of reviews on the web and Gary is a great guy to deal with.
My 2c worth - a preamp with (gasp) tone controls...
