So, after a long wait my Playback Edelweiss MPS-6 just arrived. This unit is the DAC and SACD Player in one and I have had the Stream X added. It is not Roon Ready at this time but the streaming function via MConnect Controller worked just fine.
Build quality is obviously brilliant. Nice chassis with simple, understated displays. SACD controls are on the remote and the top edge of the DAC. The remote is metal and well constructed.
They say that it will take 500 hours to break-in. Out of the box, this is clearly an elite DAC with what feels like unprecedented levels of detail in my system. I am connected via Digital Coax from my Nucleus+ through a Chord 2Go/2Yu (K50 is on loan).
The plan over the next 4 weeks is to keep it running most of the time and do a variety of tests once fully broken in and a few tests on the way.
One will be the standard five songs from the DAC Shootout connected via USB but I will also plan to put it through its paces as an SACD Player, Streamer and DAC with the K50 as the source.
With less than an hour on it, all I can say is HOLY CRAP this thing sounds good.
