JA, your new DAC measurements are fantastic. I just wish that Stereophile could include more DAC's each issue as there has been so many introduced onto the market recently. Subjective reviews are helpful but without a good set of measurements you are only seeing part of the picture. I guess there is no chance of having some meaurements included on AudioStream...

MSB has an analog-domain volume control.

Agree that the measurements section was very insightful regarding effective bit depth. Hopefully, that turns out to be an easy f/w fix.


With the addition of a volume control and DSD compatibility this could be a "killer" product at it's pricepoint.
