Do you mean the Constellation Mini?I had the opportunity yesterday to test the entry-level Pashanko server (powered by a good power supply) against my Antipodes EX in both USB and AES/EBU (using the Antipodes P2 reclocker) modes. The Pachanko came as a very clear winner; more quiet, better soundstage, timing and tonality. Peaks (like orchestral tutti) were navigated with ease by the Pachanko without any hint of strain. The P2 reclocker in AES/EBU mode improved on the USB output but was still well behind the Pachanko. I would definitely recommend a demo if you are in the market for a good Roon server.
Oh how I love the T+A SD 3100 HV Dac. My final choice came down to the MSB and the T+A. The T+A was out of my budget at the time but oh how I love that unit.1 x AES-EBU 32...192 kHz / 16-24 Bit
6 x S/P-DIF:
2 x Standard Coax
2 x BNC 32...192 kHz / 16-24 Bit,
2 x optical TOS-Link 32...192 kHz / 16-24 Bit
2 x USB DAC:
Device-Mode max. 768 kSps (PCM) und DSD 1024*, unterstützt asynchrone Datenübertragung.
*DSD 512 und DSD 1024 nur von einem Windows PC mit installiertem Treiber oder von einem Linux PC mit Kernel 4.4 oder höher.
2 x USB Master-Mode für USB-Massenspeicher (Stick oder HDD)
2 x HDMI IN, 1 x HDMI OUT mit ARC
1 x IPA (LVDS)
thes are the input options of my T+A SD 3100 hv dac.
Which output would you config at a Pachanko Constellation to get the best results?
