Amir at AudioScienceReview is benching several $99 and under DAC's. The Schitt Modi doesn't seem to fare to well even when prompted for a few more measurements at different sampling rates and bit depths: 24/48 compared with 16/44.1 The next DAC up is the $79 Behringer U-Phoria UMC-204HD
hsitas posted a topic in Networking, Networked Audio, and StreamingI am looking for an extremely low jitter source (under USD 2000) to stream digital output over sPDIF or AES/EBU to my NAD M51 DAC. Colorfly Pocket HiFi C4 Pro seems to be a good option because of it 2ps jitter at its sPDIF output. Has anyone used Colorfly C4 Pro as a digital source in their audio system? NAD M50 seems to be a good option. What is the jitter on the NAD M50 Digital Streamer? Please let me know your experiences.
alex santos posted a topic in Music in GeneralHello everyone. I came across an extremely engaging article today and wanted to share it with you here. There are no disclaimers I need mention as I am not employed by Empirical Audio nor an owner of their hardware but the article should interest a large majority of us here. nugent Computer-Driven Audio - Is it Superior to Optical-Based CD Playback? by Steve Nugent, Empirical Audio Here are some of the points he draws his focus on: Jitter Contributors to Jitter Pits in the CD Optical read head Master clock in the Transport Transmission of S/PDIF format Digital cabling and optical conversion Optical conversion Recovery of the clock from the S/PDIF signal Noisy power and ground loops Computer audio methods Playing from the Hard-Disk How external computer converters minimize jitter Pops and Ticks I2S interface Ripping and file compression Upsampling on the Computer I sincerely hope you all take a little something from the article. It is short but very interesting. Happy holidays to everyone here. Alex
