If you guys want some measurements, Allo posted some on diyaudio, using usbridge sig gives a bit better results. But after compared jolida dac with some better test results dac, I doubt maybe the measurements cannot explain all things we are listening.
I'm sure the objective measurement of this dac is not good, but to my ear, it's better than my previous su-8 at least.
Here is a photo of the internal dac, very compact design. I think the power section could be improved.
I would like to sell my smsl su-8 v2, it's 1 year old and in great shape. I'm looking for $150 net(buyer please pay shipping and pp fee), local pickup in sfbay is welcome(no other fees).
I will post some pics later.
I think he is trying to make some relationship between his experience and measurement. I don't have experience about these high price DACs, but I compared su8 and dx3 in same condition and found su8 is a bit brighter and more resolve which I prefer. But I use a saga as preamp which thd is much...
The price is reasonable as tax and shipping cost has to be included. But you have more choices now, thx 887 and sp200, if you like, I don't think blame seller for asking high price than what you thought publicly is proper.
