    linnfomaniac83 I bet you can’t wheelie a unicycle!

    Unless the ir DAC is a big leap forward from the r DAC it will simply be a good dac for the money NOT a giant killer.

    Let's see, it might just be!

    Has anybody on PFM listened to the Metrum Hex?

    Yes I know it's technically a 2012 DAC

    Great to see more DACs on the market and at affordable prices. I am hoping to see more DACs with strong USB implementation and further with DSD capability

    I think we will see an overall drop in prices as the majority of dacs are expensive for what you actually get and sales of dacs are increasing

    I'll be holding out for John Westlake's Tube Dac, if it ever comes.

    2013 dacs must have red lights.

    Blue and green are most definitely worth upgrading.

    That's why i just bought a Rega.

    New Luxman DSD dac in feb looks mighty interesting. Sounded fantastic at Tokyo show in November.
  15. I'd like all DACs to have a lights colour option :)

    I do find it difficult to see the point of DSD, other than to sell us all new equipment and/or media.

    The Teac UD-501 looks good, though sadly has a fixed line-out volume as with the UD-HO1.
  18. I doubt It'll ever be a market leader........ We've yet to get beyond MP3 on the whole.
