    Emm labs DA2 v2 upgrade

    Thanks for the link. However, it seems to describe Volume control on DV2 has equal sound performance with EMM Labs Reference Pre. What I wish to know is DV2 and the upgraded DA2 V2, would there be any difference?

    The ***Unofficial*** Multichannel DAC Thread

And I am discussing with exD designer about a MCH version to make DAC8 MKIV play MCH DSD from computer.

    The ***Unofficial*** Multichannel DAC Thread

    Thanks for all the suggestions you provide. I have narrowed my choice to Orpheus Two and EMM Switchman 3. The DAC would be EMM DAC8 MKIV, which only has XLR outputs. So maybe SWM3 would be a better choice. But I am also interested in Orpheus, which had rave review in MCH pre. BTW, Is there a...
