  • MSB Analog DAC

    Myles, this is for you (but everyone else as well) as we discussed this a while back. I now have the MSB analog Dac at Rhapsody. It's ready for demos, come on down. I can switch back and forth between the Select II and the Analog with the push of a button....interesting comparison, the Analog Dac sounds REALLY good. Big difference if you listen to the Select, but if you don't compare back and forth the Analog has a very similar type of presentation.

      Hi Al, You can't really compare the set ups (Select II vs. Analog) in my set up. I have top of line cabling connected to the Select II, but I don't think it's appropriate to run $20K rca ic's from the Analog Dac to the Vitus preamp. I have very good ic's and other cables on the Analog Dac but it's nothing I would be able to do an accurate comparison between the two, just doesn't make much sense.

      The one thing I would say is that if you don't listen to the Select and just listen to the Analog you can get sucked into the music very easily and stop thinking about Dacs......that's a good thing.

      I am running an Enklein USB cable from the Aurender N10 to the Analog Dac, as well as a I2S ethernet interface between the UMT and the Analog. From the N10 to the Select II I am running an Enkelin xlr dig cable.

      The Analog Dac sounds very good, just don't listen to the Select
