    Gustard R26 XLR, RCA SQ

    This issue has been touched upon but not precisely, when BOTH XLR and RCA outputs are being used simultaneously…. Setup: XLR out (via converter) to RCA monoblocks, short run, AND RCA out to dual subs with independent gain and crossover control. Audible, unmeasured findings seem that once the...

    Bypassing Streamer (Wiim) DAC

    I’m a newbie, to digital, I admit it. I’m confused on digital to digital output and if DA conversion occurs once, twice. I’d like to stream (have a Pro + w the DAC), to my R26 R2R (which I feed to a Levinson preamp via XLR). If I’m running Wiim via say Optical (24/192 vis WiFi), into Gustard...

    I am using the Gustard U18 with a Musician Pegasus DAC. I am using the I2S output on the U18 and the I2S input on the Pegasus.

    Gustard DAC-X16 or SMSL SU-9

    I am in the very spot of upgrading my DAC from Cambridge Audio DacMagic Plus, I have narrowed down to these two units, I wonder if I don't care for DSD or MQA, does it make sense to get either of them? Would I be better off with something like a Schiit Modius? Would the DAC-X16 or SU-9 sound...
