ok, but who makes a DAC with a subwoofer output, or better yet DSP, for <$300? I don't know of any.Maybe SMSL want to focus on making great DACs though, they're clearly very good at it. Plus this particular DAC would allow you to connect a subwoofer if you wished.
Other companies make DSPs. Why do so many feel that SMSL or Topping must make a DSP? Can't we just be satisfied that they make fantastic DACs? There are companies making DACs with nowhere near this level of performance or features for 10 and 20 (or more) times the cost.
I just think we should be pleased they are making brilliant, affordable DACs. But I get you and a lot of others have a different view.
When I was looking for a new DAC recently I decided to buy a DSP because I wanted those features. I wasn't disappointed because SMSL didn't make one, I just bought one from a company that did.
I really don't want to start an argument about this (again) and I'm sorry if it seemed I was attacking you personally, I had not even read your initial post regarding subwoofer outputs (and still haven't), just I had read a lot of posts on reviews recently criticising SMSL and Topping DACs in particular and I was simply replying to the comment by Burns (post #249) and you decided I was attacking you.
Hope you find what you need at the end of the day.
