I notice nearly all the DAC reviews by Amirm are objective including characteristic curves and parameters, but there are very few hearing experiences. Where can I find such reviews on SMSL and Topping DACs?
We consider them about as useful as taste tests for fork reviews.
A proper fork doesn't change the taste of your food, it just gets it from the plate to your mouth.
A DAC that isn't broken can be expected to do the same with music. No listening test needed if the test results show there is nothing happening that could audibly degrade the sound.
