it's a budget version specially built for Sonore.  
 
that model is using standard parts, no coaxial input, only good to 192k and not in dual mono config.......

Linux is good but only if you know the stuff. You can build from scratch and include the real time kernel, dedicated driver for your sound card, your own music player etc. But very difficult to set up. I spent a few years already and still havn't got the time to do it. I may just go with jplay in the end.....

Really that hopeless?! But his system sounded much better than mine (when I used a notebook + foobar to play DSD files). As the DAC sounds really so good when playing with an CDP, I suppose it should be the computer (hard or soft ware) to be blamed.

that basically is a linux box. so it comes with all the limitation of linux based system. i suppose you don't care about using windows based software like jplay etc. you should be o.k. personally i don't like this kind of box. usually end up in the trash not too far away in the future in my experience.

我的朋友比較刻薄,佢地話部DAC的聲音"祇"值三萬。  
 
上星期去個朋友處聽CAS,他用一部比mdlover的"Dice"大少少叫Voyage - Starter kit的機代替電腦(好似係呢部:http://store.voyage.hk/KMPD2f.php?id=54 ),感覺上沒有了電腦一堆其它functions干擾,應該更好。各位專家可以給些意見嗎?

rcwy,  
 
When you are using JPlay which does make extensive use of RAM, 8 G is in fact the minimum requirement. I like to keep a healthy margin in hand just to play safe.

It ranges from 1G to 2.5G, not much in fact if you compare to the 8G of RAM you'd have in hand.  
 
Like the retirement fund, 5 million is more than enough for comfortable living, but it just gives you extra peace of mind if you could have 20 million, or better still, a hundred million!

It pays to upgrade to 16G RAM if provision is available for that particular model. The cost is only a few hundred bucks. It makes you feel more comfortable playing hi-res files in the years to come.

增加了Digital in,這樣可以把CD的Digital out接進來,也可用此DSD DAC聽CD了。  
結果一听不好了!原來聽了一段時間的那1955 dac,給pk下去了。  
當然這結果對我來說已是意料之中,因定位那里已証實,此DAC不輸給他7万元之CD+DAC。

Li c-fu  
 
Thanks for posting my undone. I still not know how to post pictures through photobucket. Should I copy the link and paste directly in here or copy that in the 相片URL, and which link from that photo file should I pick? I am trying many but unsuccessfully. May need your guys help.  
 
My Mcintosh DAC pair with the CDT have been with me for almost 8 yrs, No USB interface though back to yr, except it has a high quality DAC chipset inside and can be upsampling to 768khz, With the m2tech hiface2 USB converter, those hi-rez tracks I downloaded from hdtrack really impressed me a lot.  
 
I listen to a Mcintosh music server (direct coaxial to dac) for almost 4 yrs and all files ripped from redbook stored in FLAC 44.1khz/16bits only. Consider it is outdated in term of dac technology nowaday, But together they have been pleasing me most of time. Now I finally am being convinced by most others, changing to USB CAS which I had been really not care at all before until recently.

回覆 (858): CAS system up
I was thinking to buy a new DAC with USB connection to begin with for CAS. But it seems now I can use the M2tech USB converter 192/24 with my current DAC capable of upsampling to 768/24. But this all depends how this little device would ever brought me in term of final sonic performance. More to share.

回覆 (857): CAS system up
Well, I just bought a m2tech HiFace2 USB to SPDIF converter which works fine with my Mcintosh MDA1000 DAC , reads correct sampling frequency and shows on the screen. This little device really useful if we want to keep our older DACs which have no USB connection.  
 
I play all hd files in JRiver MC18 with an old laptop runs XP os by plugin the USB converter and SPDIF out to my dac, its overall performance seems quite well to me. I dont need to pair that with JPlay, since I still dont quite understand what the jpaly actually does together with the Jriver.

Found the sound very much better when playing normal cd with a CDP. Originally planned to do so mod on the DAC but now believe priority should be given to improving the computer hard and soft wares.
