I OWN THE 27IX. I HAVE HEARD THE 521. THE 27IX IS SUPERIOR.THE 27IX SAMPLE RATE IS ALMOST DOUBLE THE 521.
I could compare my wadia 9 to the 521. The 521 is really behind.
One would hope given the price differential.
Wadia benefits from proper shelves, power conditioning, power cords, and glass interconnects. There are ways to optimize each of these DACs, which reflect different price points.
