Owners of "Giant Killers"?
Sorry for the confusion. The DAC I bought was the ack! Dack! It replaced a Dodson 217 MK2.

Attn Vinyl lovers - what CD Player do you use?
Ack dAck! 1.0. Replaced a $6000 DAC. Smooth, warm and open. As close to vinyl as I've heard digital sound. 
What is your favorite Greg Brown CD?
Covanent and From The Inside are my 2 favorites but all are worth having. 
Benchmark Dac1 vs Ack dAck
I own the aCK! and I can say after owning the Classe DAC-1,Theta GEN Va and the Dodson 217 MKII that it is the best DAC I have owned.It is very open, smooth and has the least glare and fatique of any DAC I have heard.Good luck. Mark 
Where do I go from Eva Cassidy?
For something a little more updated try MIndy Smith. Especially "One Moment More" a song about her mothers passing. 
DAC Help
i JUST REPLACED A $5200 DAC with the ack! dACK! at $525 with a 21 day home trail, it is incredible. Give it a try and I think you'll be very happy. Mark Deal

Wanna know how noisy your AC is ?

Best Used DAC for 1000?
Can't be beat for $1000. Killed the Bel Canto and Sony SACD 777es in my system and was a draw with a Theta Gen Va.
