Anyone know if the included filters are linear phase or minimum phase?
See my comment here: https://www.audiosciencereview.com/...x16-balanced-mqa-dac-review.17419/post-564176I’m guessing L in L-Fast and M in M-slow refer to the phase?
But if you compare with the filters on the su9 it lines up with H-Fast to Fast Hybrid L-Fast to Fast Linear and M-Slow to Slow MinimumSee my comment here: https://www.audiosciencereview.com/...x16-balanced-mqa-dac-review.17419/post-564176
If you compare with other ESS DAC like DX7 Pro you can learn which ones they used in this chip. From comparison, it should be brickwall, apodising and linear slow. The "apodising" filter in Sabre chips has been shown to also be a minimum phase variant, not linear.
So, any news about delays? Has anyone got info about shipping?
Its not unusual for a manufacturer to ship a one off item to a reviewer, get a glowing review, collect checks on said review, and use that as seed money to fund production.
