AYRE

I friend of mine who works in hifi has heard rumours AYRE are going to do a non-usb DAC. Does anyone know when this might appear ?

I'd love to have an AYRE dac but it it means i need to build or invest in yet another mini-computer and I don't see the point since I'm heavily invested into Squeezebox/server.

Friend mentioned Moon DAC as a good alternative. I've got a musical fidelity XDAC V-8 but have a feeling I could do better.

Ayre's Charlie Hansen told me at the RMAF in October that Ayre would not be doing an S/PDIF-input DAC.

Of the new crop of DACs, Sam Tellig highly recommends the Musical Fidelity M1 DAC ($695).

Thanks John. I ended up

Thanks John. I ended up buying the Ayre. Its terrific. I compared it with the new Moon DAC (cheaper one) and it definitely sounded better though the Moon was pretty good too.
