    Well not according to Chord Mscalar designer Rob. He said he never heard better DAC than his DAC and Mscalar. So I don’t think it is not fair to ask this question as we are talking about best against the best.

    The Chord Blu2/Dave looks like this... It sits on top of a Quadraspire stand along with the equipment listed below.

    I'm in the middle of downsizing my system and I'll probably sell the Blu2/Dave stack soon.

    Trouble is Mike, unlike you, 99% of us have to ask the question since we do not have access to all the cool toys for a one of one comparison. To me the comparison should be for the money, the Chord Hugo TT2 and a M-scaler vs the Dave outright no Dave + M-scaler.

    Chris - good question, but here's the issue: it's just my opinion. If I bring 10 people into the store, 5 will say "DAVE!!" and 5 will say "Hugo TT2 + M-Scaler!!"

    But I would lean toward "DAVE" because you can always add the M-Scaler down the road, which is not a 1+1 = 2 situation, it's more like 1+1 = 5.

    Very true Mike. But to some is it a $5k difference even with the M_scaler added to the Dave. It gets down to the rest of the equipment in the line up, you know the amp, pre and speakers like can you hear that $5k difference.. And the M-scaler can be added to pretty much any other DAC using their optical or BNC inputs. But I see your point from a dealer perspective

    What BNC cables are folks using between MScaler and DAVE?
