I'm still not sure this as big of a deal for a dac? Meridian is talking about custom artifact reducing filters. Theta already utilizes it's own custom filters and wasn't interested last time Meridian...

You'll get no debate from me. Seems that with products you have to pick which technology you value most. Forced to choose, I'd chose Dirac Live over MQA. I'm afraid I could not get motivated to...

I've been trying Roon with Tidal. I really like Tidal! Roon is just so superior than any other program for visuals. Ultimately, I am certain I will use Roon to manage my music. Right now, I'm waiting...

I wonder why? The 1792A has better specs. Maybe a cost decision, much cheaper, or the fact it's a 32bit dac? The Gen 8 uses the 1792A so perhaps that will help the D-3 Xtremes blend better with it....

The ones that are my personal friends, and have tried, suck at it. Based upon their feeble attempts, I'd conclude that it is a bit more difficult to make great sounding stuff than having an EE...

Everyone capable should move to the newest dacs just because of how much the specs have improved. I am confident that Theta did not wait so long to upgrade the dac unless they could significantly...

That is the position that Berkeley Alpha has taken as well. With the approach your are taking, you can't even switch between sample rates as the CBIV does not operate at 24/176. Custom filters are...

You weren't referencing "digital out, " hence your comment about the loss of Dirac Live. Analog out, the 105 is considerably better than the 103 regard but as you stated, you do lose Dirac Live.

You make a good point about the loss of DL. The Oppo 105 sounds a lot better than the 103 IMO. I have had them both in same system. The Oppo 103 is much harsher sounding. It's just my opinion but I...

It would depend on what dacs you are using in your CBIV. If you are using the older Xtremes, I'd get the Oppo 105. If you have or plan to get the new Xtreme D-3, I'd buy the Oppo 103. The Oppo 105...

The cards are labeled. It will either say Superior or Superior II at bottom of card. If it just says Superior dac, then it's the original version and not the newer II version.
