    Re: 560 d/a

    After reading that review I want one really bad, it sounds like it would be my ultimate DAC. I have to remember a bit of wisdom my father repeatedly told me when I was growing up, which is that "it's good to want". His explanation was that you should always have some things that you desire in order to keep you ambitious and hard working. My response was generally that "it may be good to want but it's better to have!" Maybe I should follow his advice in this case.

    Cracker post, my thoughts at a young age would have been "I want you to shut up!", if my father had of said that

    I use the ethernet connection for my NAS content. I also use AES/EBU via LUMIN. I also employ the USB connection.

    To my ears in my system the ethernet connection sounds best with the 560 DAC.

    Re: 560 d/a

    Soulution have just announced an upgrade for their DACs. A Leedh Processor that will transform the digital volume control. Cyril informed me that 560 with Leedh will out perform the 520. This is of great interest for me as I have a digital only system. The 560 could then suffice as both an excellent pre and digital hub..
    I'm sending mine off for the upgrade
    this is what Soulution has to say

    soulution introduces « Leedh Processing » to its D/A converters 760 and 560

    soulution is the first high end electronics manufacturer world-wide who was allowed to license «Leedh Processing» for its D/A converters 560 and 760. «Leedh Processing» is a highly innovative algorithm for increasing or decreasing the volume level of a digital music signal. The patented «Leedh Processing» algorithm does this without adding any artefacts to the digital music signal. No information will be lost while adjusting the volume. This results in revealing even thinnest details and a tremendous richness of micro dynamics otherwise unavailable from digital music playback and usually associated with analog/vinyl music reproduction. Existing units of 760 and 560 can be upgraded for the new «Leedh Processing» volume control feature.
    «Leedh Processing» has been invented by Gilles Millot of Acoustical Beauty, a French niche manufacturer for high end loudspeaker systems who already holds several patents for his innovative designs and technologies. The innovative «Leedh Processing» algorithm is not limited to applications in high end audio. It will also do its magic in lower quality, mass market products or even in applications outside audio.
