    Re: Meitner MA-3 DAC

    unit is not damaged, the VC is made cheap. thats not a problem since everybody will use the remote control.
    ma3 driving the audionet heisenberg direct with rca has hum. thats a fact of that very own constellation. other set ups may work well and again, i got recommended to use xlr and to try grounding.
    by nature, one likes dac direct and one not.
    dont get me wrong, i do like the ma3 and would buy it again as it is.

    I’m sitting in front of mine right now and it’s not “wobbly” or cheap. The VC is made of metal and not plastic. Here’s a video:

    Re: Meitner MA-3 DAC

    coool, thx for the clip!!
    yours seem to be a bit tighter, difficult to see. mine is not really wobbling around, but i would say it shifts a millimiter. certainly doesnt feel like the knobs of the ultra high end machines.
    the clicks do not make a nice sound imho and if you turn the knob fast, it starts to scream.
    even yours, i could hear that in the video (listening with my ma3, lol).

    Mike,

    Have you sold many of these? How does it stack up to your other offerings?

    It’s currently flying under the radar. We use it almost exclusively in the front room, so it’s getting lots of exposure.
