And what if you use a stereo set-up, headphone amp with multiple headphones (with different PEQ or convolution settings) with such a DAC?
I rather choose presets trough a tablet and a software like roon.
Can't imagine going through presents on a tiny DAC display and let alone setting up everything.
And if U want to do all that with a tablet or computer you might as well just use software on a computer.
It's a preference where the DSP is done, but @Rednaxela point of DSP for multiple sources is a valid one. My preference is to have DSP in the DAC/HP amp and not in PC software, and for me that works very well with no hassle when changing between inputs as well as outputs.
So DSP in DACs is for me one nice feature for more manufacturers to implement as compared to even more excellently performance when we're way past audibility. My guess is that more manufacturers will start to implement this to differentiate themselves or among their own products.
