ok massdrop. now im not saying i will not buy this (probably will) BUT ANOTHER PRODUCT IN THIS CHASSIS AND YET NO DAC in this same chassis to allow stacking?? cmon really? the cth and ctx i will have tomm and now this one and i have to use a little box that looks like an after thought instead of something that actually will match and look nice like this type of stack should look. PLEASE offer us a dac with this chassis and please make it a good one. thank you....... if nothing else can i buy an empty one of these chassis to at least drill the holes in the front and put the sdac (would prefer a higher and dac) into im very capable of doing so??
That is what I'm talking about. Please share the details as soon as you can.
hell yes. when? where? how fast? haha
SO those interested in this amp and want it to be a DAC as well should wait for a 2nd drop, or will it be an upgrade option for those who participate in this one?
It will be a DAC by it self in this form factor and not a DAC/AMP combo unit.
I think (read wish) MD should make the stack unit you infer here, with a decent DAC(s) that is DSD native capable to at least 11.2 and have a ~120GB SSD in it as a buffer. It can can be fed with a USB so it will be a clean transfer, not a stream. It can of course have BT & WiFi if they want to for streaming or of course clean transfer again. I would rather it be clean, just the SSD buffer to take the USB stream problem (stream capable though) out of the equation and it can then work with the THX AAA™ 789, CTH or the Liquid Carbon X . It should have a small color OLED display for a playlist scroll/select file type plus DAC mode bit perfect/up-sample etc. minimalist but functional and of course look great ;) & a driver to view on a PC.
Re what the Pro-Ject folks did with an integrated mini HMI:
Just a mini dedicated can+ DAC-player not a multi-thousand dollar player. Yes BT-WiFi would be nice, stick a Qualcomm chip in, if you want as an upgrade $ option, if it will fit… another multi-media box…?
ROE: Dual DAC's, or single like WM4398, ”balanced” out MUSES03‘s, SSD, DSD native and an OCXO, differentiate, at a minimalist-purposed-clean level to match the other MD's. Not just the SDAC in a big box. That’s all,, a hole in the market that could be filled, why I own a used MR-2000S, don’t have thousands...
Sounds like another MD/PSAudio collab possibility... except one I would want.
Any updates on this? A standalone DAC is exactly what I'm looking for and since I already own the CTH, I'd prefer a DAC in the same style chassis. If this collaboration is less than 6 months out, I'm happy to wait.
Less than 6 months? Try less than 6 weeks : )
That's a funny choice of words
It's -2 weeks now. Is this magical THX + DAC combo now ready? =)
I might have misunderstood but I think Will was referring to the Airist RDAC that dropped recently.
Airist R2R DAC and a darn good one too.
