47 Labs


I think about a new Digital Playback and that Company has some nice units :-)
I never had the chance to listen to them but are here some owners who can write some lines about them? Specially Flatfish + their DAC (there are 2 different ones I think)...how do they compare to the Esoteric, EMM ....units?

Thank you

I've been using the 47 Labs Shigaraki series 4715 DAC and 4716 transport for the past five years and find them to be very satisfying for digital playback. I haven't heard the Reference series Flatfish transport or Progression or Gemini DAC's or the other manufacturer's units you mention so I can't make a comparison.

NOS DAC's such as the 47 Labs are worth checking out to see if they are a good fit for your digital playback standards as they offer a different presentation than that of upsampling digital gear.
