It's a shame that @staticV3 couldn't balance his post by saying what incredible value for money Chinese audio is providing us with.
I sometimes wonder reading some friends here have 3-4-5 DAC;s and HPA's,some more than that.The total of these doesn't seem like VFM to me,the opposite.
VFM is a device able to meet your needs,rely on it for years and is trouble free with rock solid performance at a reasonable price.
Constant upgrading to get 2db inaudible SINAD blows VMF away and makes the devices disposable as their second hand value drops like a rock.

Agreed - buy (and pay for) the features you need in a DAC - and then forget about it.

For the price of several cheap dacs you could get something well built that will be equally audibly perfect, but you'll have confidence in it lasting a lifetime.

Every where I look there is a DAC, including my remotes. :mad:

Not really, but at least an ADC.

Got the Velvet email this morning. First thought you can't tell them apart. It should have a velour or velvet top.
