Bricasti M1SE DAC vrs Meitner MA3

I recently posted a DAC choice between a Meitner MA3 and a Bricasti m3.  I now have a choice between (just became available) The same Meitner M3 and a Bricasti  M1SE version model. The Bricasti is a little more expensive after certain discounts and adjustments are applied, about another 1K.  I hate to ask, (but I will) if anybody has input or preferences for one or the other, hopefully from hearing or owning one. As I grow older this will most likely be my last DAC  Thanks so much. Robert TN


 I currently own Meitner MA3 and have heard Bricasti M1SE multiple times at my friend’s home. Both are great dacs within spitting distance of each other in every way. Flip a coin and go with the decision :)

arafig///// Thanks so much, I think? I'm laughing now as my investigation continues. The company owner that I'm dealing with said, EXACTLY THE SAME THING!!! Thanks

You should look at the Wyred4Sound 10th anniversary DAC, it beat both of those DACs in testing, one of the reviewers put it up against his VPI turntable with a $5,000 Japanese cartridge and he said the 10th anniversary DAC was every bit as analog sounding, on that review I bought it because it comes with a 30-day trial. and I totally agree it is one of the most analog sounding DACs I've ever had in my system. It's not cheap though It's $4,500 US.
