I finally got it installed and fully functional. I reinstalled the device drivers and had to tweak a bit. Must say, the sound is not as good off my PC and the Wireworld Silver USB cable.


Also got my hands on a PS Audio Perfectwave and Directstream DAC's. Very nice sounding.


Thank you for the help Woof Woof!

Guess what shipped today, I might have the first one released in the wild.


If you get one, download the driver for the REFlink to make it work with windows.


100 hour break in here I come.

A little more info on the 2.7. They put in the box the REFlink and the VBS1 power supply. Retail is $2500.
It's breaking in now, definitely warmer than the 2.5. I like the sound so far. Should be a fun ride as hours add up on this DAC.

So no more 3 boxes, it's all in the one unit for a lot less.

There hasn't been much activity lately but I have a Bel Canto DAC 3 and was thinking of pairing it to an older Cary Audio 306/200 disk spinner that I just got a great deal on. From what I heard, the Cary is an awesome piece by itself but I'm wondering would the Bel Canto DAC make it even better?

Enjoy The Music!

Its possible... depends on if the cary can output without processing and if it is less than 24/192
