miguelito posted a topic in DAC - Digital to Analog ConversionHas anyone compared the EMMLabs DA2 and the dCS Rossini? A few important things to me: 1- Naturalness of sound 2- Not bright but no lack of detail or bite either 3- Well defined bass 4- Space space space 5- Piano has to sound real For context, my system is in my signature below. Thx!
Ciamarasound posted a topic in General ForumEMM Labs DA2 New Generation Flagship DAC is HERE! (please call for pricing and delivery options) "Based on what I'd heard I thought this system would reproduce live music very well. I cranked the volume up to what seemed like 100 dB and grabbed the center seat. What I heard literally sounded like a live Nirvana concert. The room in which this system was in was huge and so was the soundstage. The electrostatic panels sounded awesome with the huge EMM amps and the new DA2 DAC. The sound wasn't like a traditional audiophile system at a show, rather it was life-like with air and immediacy in a way that made other systems sound a bit closed in and boxy. I think I could have played the entire Unplugged album with my eyes closed and seriously felt like I was sitting in Sony Music Studios in New York City on November 18, 1993." -Chris Connaker (computeraudiophile.com RMAF 2015 recap) Ed Meitner of EMM Labs proudly previews the DA2, his successor to the much beloved DAC2X The DA2 is EMM Labs next generation flagship DAC. Re-designed from the ground up, Ed Meitner has once again created a DAC that significantly moves the bar in terms of transparency, accuracy and overall sound quality. New in the DA2: 16xDSD MDAC™ Proprietary hardware galvanic isolation for the USB Audio interface Every other system from its proprietary jitter removal MFAST™ to its super accurate clock, MCLK™ has been carefully revised for better sound. Inputs -> 1xAES, 1xUSB Audio, 2xSPDIF, 2xTOSLINK Outputs -> Balanced and un-balanced analog outputs (both can be used at the same time) With EMM Labs' MDAT™ DSP engine and MDAC™ already running at 16xDSD (DSD1024, 45Mhz/49Mhz) this unit is basically future proof and now performs at a whole different level/generation of performance than the DAC2X. Finishes: Silver with titanium insert and buttons (pictured) Black with black insert and buttons Premium finish with plated inserts/buttons: 24K gold, Nickel/Silver and custom finish available. We're now accepting orders for EMM Labs next production run, so give us a call to see about getting on the list. 1.844.CIAMARA (1.844.242.6272) High End Audio Store NYC - Experience Ciamara
