A DAC that crushes price vs. performance ratio
I had received last week an Email from a GON member regarding his experience with the LAB 12 DAC.  His experience of it was, " I've tried 4 DACS in the past 2 months and the LAB 12 is definitely my favorite." I asked him if he would be willing to ...

A DAC that crushes price vs. performance ratio
If my take is correct about simna's experience with the Lab 12, "makes me wanna keep listening", I think it's mainly a thumbs up perspective.  I do not experience a loss of leading edge focus, which I think simna means when he refers to "edge" on ... 
The new magnificent Linear Tube Audio MicroZOTL Preamplifier
