I’m a bit new to all this. So, one would connect a laptop to the usb to play mqa?

You could, but if you are using such a high-end DAC, I would not recommend to use a notebook/laptop. Instead, use a networked audio adaptor like the "Sonore ultraRendu" or the "SOtm sMS-200ultra" (of course, both of them using an external linear power suply). Also, a good streaming client such as "Roon Labs" is highly recommended. Other wise, it is just saving money on the wrong parts...

ultraRendu:

Power Supply for ultraRendu:

Roon Labs client:

If you are spending EUR 3,500.00 for a DAC, don't save money on the streamer...

Thanks, and I agree: the problem is that I’m only now learning of all these devices. So, thanks for the education. I have ordered the Evolution and will report on it shortly after I get it.

 You are a brave soul buying a $3500 DAC that only a handful of people have heard before you.

Looking forward to your impressions.
Rafa.

Well, I have the 10, which sounds wonderful. I suspect I’ve not erred. 🙀

Evolution DAC is only shipping end of this month.
I think we have been very straight forward with information and accurate in presenting the quality and features differences between our products so people trust what I say  :thumb:

Nearly completed manual here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/639y6vifqnhhoyw/Evo%20DAC%20Manual%202018.11.21%20V2%20Web.pdf?dl=0

You can change the phase, change the gain (volume control variable, Line Out Fixed with Max 8V or Max 4V), even change the channels (L/R, R/L, LL, RR). I have been wondering what's the point for LL or RR configuration. It turns out that if you have too much money, you can use dual DACs for active cross over or bi-amping.

Regarding the 7 types of digital filter, it is part of the ESS9038 design, honestly we can't tell the difference.
Since the OpAmp can be DIY replaced, so I am sure this topic will keep growing after we start shipping Evolution DAC next week.
You can tweak until your face turn blue.

What type of OpAmps is it using? Which is the factory-installed OpAmp?
