Not exactly the same but I did compare the Analog Dac with power base, volume control and the UMT+ transport. My computer files go through the UMT+ first and then are locked to bit perfect slave to the Analog Dac clock. Much improved over USB direct into the Analog Dac. Though adding the UMT+ transport is expensive, total cost was a bit north of $18K I really beat the pants off the demo Platinum Dac IV with the older transport that did not offer this I2S interface, and was cheaper. Now, the UMT+ with the Platinum Dac would probably be even better but would not be in balance with my system or finances.
