    Anybody here Ever heard of this stuff?

    BTW & FYI: R2R doesn't necessarily need to be expensive. Audio-GD has models in their R2R range that cost much less than the top of line R2R 7. http://www.audio-gd.com/Products-EN.htm Until very recently prices were posted on each model page. Hope this isn't about the "tariff thing."

    FWIW: The mid-priced Audio-GD DAC I owned 3-4 years ago sounded considerably better than the other more expensive and better known DAC brands I had on hand. IMO it was an incredible bargain. Dealing with Kingwa and his folks was nothing but a pleasure.
  4. Gotcha, sorry. Didn't get the 2nd part at first.
  5. Auralic does "do" MQA though with Auralic proprietary decoding.

    What are your "WOW" moments in audio?

    It works as advertised and reviewed, plus it's a bargain to boot. I've experienced the Swarm's effectiveness in two systems. The Swarm Subwoofer System

    Wow, VERY interesting. Maybe I should be spending less time in my listening room which houses a pair of speakers with three 15” drivers each along with three subs??
