Your post illustrates why the cost of a piece of equipment does not translate into listening pleasure for everyone. I was beginning to think that the DAC1 was sent from heaven with all the positive reviews, articles, posts, etc. But, I keep hearing the same words used, as you mentioned: detail, precision, accuracy. When I listen to vinyl I mostly listen for emotion, flow, natural voices and instruments. These are not exclusive of each other but are different flavors, like ice cream. Thanks for your post. I am interested to hear if others have compared the two and their reactions. For the money, the SN is hard to beat!
