    Maybe he's enjoying DSD now? The DAC8 DSD upsampled to 512 is superb! T+A handles DSD in such a unique manner.

    Re: T+a dac8

    Hehe... no... I have been to his house several times (he is a member of our audio club). The music server he uses does not even have DSD capability ....

    I love what the DAC 8 DSD does at DSD512/48. I cannot imagine listening to straight PCM music again at this point . I agree the T+A is simply amazing.

    I am shocked that T+A has not gained the reputation in the US yet and gained a huge market share. Such an amazing company that most Americans are unaware of ....

    Totally agree. The T+A PDP3000HV mops the floor with any Esoteric I had. But, it doesn’t get the love on this side of the pond. Check out Hi-Fi News or HiFi+ and you will see their products kicking ass and taking names almost monthly.

    Re: T+a dac8

    recently began sending dsd128 [max dsd rate with non-windows OS] to the t+a dac 8 dsd... whoa!! simply amazing and blows pcm away -- which i think is more than excellent on this dac as well. cannot even imagine dsd256 or dsd512 on this dac. must be incredible.

    i should probably by a 2nd unit just to keep in the closet as a back-up ;-)

    Well T+A claims their units are designed to last not just years, but decades... but, I know Marty is selling one ....
