    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    Hi Emile, Totaldac DACs can play DSD DoP when they have the DSD option. The reclocker mk2 is also DSD DoP compatible, it lets DSD pass through in a bit perfect way.

    USPS is not fast currently, other customers used DHL, Fedex or UPS and this was fast, 2 to 3 days most times, so they already received back their reclocker.
