The made TEAC NT-505 measurement was great, but this type of unit can be completely different if you could measure it as network streamer (not as USB DAC) - the weakest point of this unit is the USB "gate" (unfortunately not as good like the XMOS XU208/XU216 types)
Since this unit is mainly a Streamer (from local network/internet) the most interesting measurements for most of the users is this capability.
The NET board is brand newly developed and I assume much-much higher quality than the USB input. (I guess Lumin D2/T2 level at least) YT review (see the ENG sub)
Is is possible to re-measure the NT-505 from network as source?

Many many thanks in advance!

Hello, I'm new to the forum but has been reading the articles with great enthusiasm. Recently I enjoy a lot of very detailed speaker measurements, but on the other hand measurements of portable systems somehow seem to have been decreased. I would like to see the reviews of recent portable DACs such as Fiio Q5s and BTR5 to see how they would compare with competitors...

The $199 Schiit Modius Balanced DAC through AES vs USB input. I’m interested if this can even reach topping E30’s performance given that the specs provided by Schiit isn’t too shabby.

@T.M.Noble any interest in sending Amir this Schiit for review?

Amir received his Modius this past Saturday. I look forward to his review as well.

I really wanna see Asgard 3 review with 4490 akm chip included. There is really no all in one option like this in the market with good build and strong amp. I wanna see how it measures.

If it had the stepped attenuator volume control like Ragnarok (for no channel imbalance issues) I’d agree.

Maybe version 4 !

Just discovered this forum as I am getting back into high end audio, thanks for the reviews. I have an old Pioneer XPA-700 I could loan you. Curious to see the results.
