    Matrix Audio Mini-i Pro 3 Review (Streamer & DAC)

    As soon you plug a headphone in any of the two headphones outs, both, XLR and RCA outputs turn OFF.

    Matrix Audio X-SABRE 3 DAC/Streamer Official Thread

    I can hear the noise only if I place my ear literally touching the unit which I never do. BTW, my ARCAM ST60 has the same noise. That noise is LCD screen related and it does not affect SQ at all.

    miniDSP Flex

    More than a stripped down SHD, this is more like a refined/upgraded version of the 2x4 HD + DDRC-24. It has the same processor as the 2x4 HD, in fact, it uses the same 2x4 HD plugin but also you can upgrade it to Dirac Live and have both, 2x4 HD plugin + Dirac Live plugin and switch between...

    A DAC could be Roon Tested (Not Roon Ready) which is another category. You can read about Roon Ready and Roon Tested categories in Roon Labs website. https://roonlabs.com/partners

    Matrix Audio X-SABRE 3 DAC/Streamer Official Thread

    Roon Ready means that the equipment works with Roon RAAT without the need to be connected to a computer. Any Roon Ready device passes through a series of tests done by Roon Labs to certified that the equipment works with Roon without any glitches.

    Matrix Audio X-SABRE 3 DAC/Streamer Official Thread

    DAC to DAC there is only 2dB SINAD difference so I would say they should sound the same. Both are fully transparent. Also the original X-SABRE Pro MQA is not Roon Ready and no streaming capabilities.

    Matrix Audio X-SABRE 3 DAC/Streamer Official Thread

    I agree that if the X-SABRE 3 is going to be used only as DAC connected into a PC, even with Roon, then a Topping D90SE would be your best choice. BTW, price difference between the X-SABRE 3 and D90SE is more than $2K.

    Hegel H95 Review (Streaming Amplifier)

    WOW….. This and the Roon Certification delayed for almost 2 years is going to piss off a few current owners. I always thought Hegels were overpriced piece of gears. Now that we can see what is under the hood, I’m glad never took a chance with them. You can find much better gear for less $$$.

    Lindemann Limetree Review (streamer)

    Let me explain. Back in 2017, Roon Labs informed all their partners that by Sep 2020 all Roon Ready devices had to be certified by Roon Labs in order to work as Roon end points. Before that, manufactures just used to implement Roon’s RAAT protocol without any testing done by Roon. This caused...
