It's time to replace my 2009 factory-modded Wadia S7i with a current R2R DAC.
Having finally emerged from the rabbit hole of review leading on to review (doubting I'd ever come back), I found that most assess their DAC's performance based on source input from computers or servers.
But I have a collection of cd's that I wouldn't live long enough to load into a server, nor do I foresee streaming from commercial libraries or using USB/HDMI connectivity.
So, my question:: do present-day machines perform equally as well using native mode PCM hard discs played from a transport ?
Oh and ..have any lovers of the Wadia house sound found equivalent sound in a R2R DAC ?
