(although i noone here really cares and are totallly focused on theory....)

i own an audionote dac that has only 18dB/oct analog lowpass filters..... and it sounds far better than EVERYTHING i've heard..... (i haven't heard dan's stuff yet  Crying or Very Sad ) the top end is sooooo smooth and i don't hear anything resembling aliasing...... the sound is more transparent and open than eg. benchmark etc.

so to say that the entire diy community is wrong is very narrowminded......

i think the simplest explanation for the second to none sound is less crap in the signal path.... plain and simple.....

anyway,....


Please check your system for proper frequency response from 20Hz to 20kHz.  It should measure +/- 0.5db at all frequencies to be in the realm of a faithful reproduction of the source signal.

Please read the rules of the forum. We do NOT talk here about individuals opinions of what sounds good. There are many places where people can argue what sounds good to them. This forum may be about issues you do not care about, but others do.

I do not know what "diy community" stands for. Is it "Do it yourself"?
