Roon shows the DAC is decoding mqa in the signal path but the DAC shows 352dxd or 384dxd (no mqa display). Hence I don't know if mqa is being fully unfolded or not.
Have written to EMM.. hopefully will be sorted soon.
Although my setup is sounding good, I feel that the new generation DAC's can offer a warmer and more engaging sound.
It does everything right but on many tracks, I miss the intimacy - I don't know how to explain it in words.
EMM and Esoteric are the 2 options I've looking at but definitely...
I use the Dartzeel Pre/Power with the Evolution MM2 Speakers.
My current DAC is the Playback Designs MPD-5 with the USB-XIII box.
I listen only to Computer Audio using Roon.
I'm looking to upgrade my DAC to something like the EMM DA2 or the Esoteric N-01.
Is anyone using either of these...
