Could anyone weigh in on the particular DAC chip? I've used Sabre 9018s and I really like the clean, detailed sound. I've also heard some Wolfson DACs, and I thought they were a bit veiled and dark.
Chips are important, but I recommend against using them as indicators. Sound also depends on lots of other factors. You can have two DAPs with same chip but completely different sound.
Sure. But, there is generally a sort of family resemblance. I'm just wondering what kind of virtues this DAC chip has shown across the board.
