Hmm then I am curious if the ~200€ is worth it to upgrade to the RMI ADI-2 DAC over the Daccord FF.
The RME has a lot of more features but does one really need them? Are there any features/options on the RME that you would miss a lot on a different DAC?
As mentioned above, you can do most of the stuff the ADI 2 does in EqualizerAPO or similar freeware. The appeal of this DAC is having a nice all-in-one box for this functionality.
Whether you should upgrade from the Daccord or not is kinda dependent on how it performs. We don’t have this information. Statements like “founded by a respected engineer” are kinda meaningless as the same sort of statements were thrown around for Schiit before the measurement fiasco. Without the data, the Daccord is a risky buy and should be out of the running.
