    All Squeezelite sources now (hardware players retired), into modified Cambridge DacMagic via Peachtree X1 async USB-SPDIF, Wyred4Sound DAC2-DSD, Wyred4Sound DAC2-DSDse, and a couple of HiFiMe U2 DACs.

    Looks like they have been vaporware for the better part of a year.

    Seeing all the recent reviews of DAC's with asymmetric (apodizing) filters - like Ayre and Meridian - and hearing the new Linn DS units makes me think there's still potential room for improvement.

    So, as a poll, what kind of outboard DAC do you use with your squeezeboxes?


    Secondly, has anyone switched from 'my' setup to something else, and had an increase in performance? If so, what did you try?

    Thanks,

    Current setup unchanged > 1 year so I like it, but of course it will change.

    Transporter -> ifi tube 2 -> Denon AVR 4306 -> Kef iq9
    Cambridge Audio Dacmagic -> audiolab 8000 -> B&W 685
    Touch -> Little Dot Dac_1 -> Little Dot mk3 headphone amp
    IQaudIO Pi-DAC+ currently unused, v.nice headphone out, 'lively/exciting' presentation, I find the Dacmagic and Transporter more detailed.
