@wharfy. I agree with sns as he stated in the 005 thread.. I find the 005 to have no glare or high frequency irritation. You will hear the truth. No sugar coated gloss. That being said, listening is highly personal. Sometimes a violin, for exampl...

@metaldetektor "(1) The source(s) could be a meaningful limiting factor. A regular laptop --> USB cable --> DAC is not a great digital source. So it’s possible that one of the DACs has a significantly higher ceiling than the other, but it wa... 
Musetec (LKS) MH-DA005 DAC
I'm glad you are happy with the 005. Welcome to the small but growing club. Goldensound recently released a very positive review of the Gustard on YouTube. Perhaps you can make a comment there to convince him to review the 005. It deserves wider a... 
DAC Shootout Starts This Weekend
  @verdantaudio  I agree generally with you and your musician friend to the extent that there is no reality and hence accuracy in conncection with electronicly produced music. No base line exists. The recording is an artifact made by the musicians... 
Thoughts on JRiver Media Center? Anyone using it?
JRiver is indispensable for me because I have a very large number of classical works stored in my server. It is the only one I know of that provides a customizable robust meta-data system that is suitable for classical. Plus the sound quality is e...

I only use JRiver with the 005. It can upsample, but it may not be comparable in quality to HQPlayer. I've noticed very little difference as the quality of 44.1 is so good. In fact, I'm not even sure the native DSD files I have sound better than t...

I'd love to hear your take on the Musetec compared to higher priced DACs. Where are you in NY?

@ja_kub_su Sorry, the factory direct price I paid in April was $2,800, not $2700.The Musetec email address is: bleerock@126.com. It is on their website at http://www.mu-sound.com/

@melm This kind of analysis should be helpful to potential buyers who in the first instance assume similar price means similar quality. Holo Audio is not really a factory direct discount operation. You pay for the US distributor who is primarily ...

@melm @redlenses03The 005 was connected via USB  to an Asus mini Windows computer while the Holo Audio May was connected via USB to an Asus laptop. I don't think there is any discernable difference in sound between the two computers. In terms of s...

Masterpieces resonate through the ages. If it is a masterpiece it will live. 
Review: Holo May (L2) DAC and the Musetec Audio (LKS Audio) MH-DA005 DAC Compaired
Sns: You make an interesting point. To me there is something more enduring or less tiresome about the sound made by traditional natural materials put in vibration: brass, wood, strings, animal skins, and human vocal cords. A good question is can e...
