    Default Rant and ticked at myself DSD

    I made a mistake and waited to upgrade my W4S dac2 for the DSD upgrade. When the DSD upgrade first came out, it was priced at what I thought was reasonable $349. A few months later it's now $495. I did email W4s and they said it wound up costing more to do the upgrade than expected. I am ticked at myself for not jumping on it when they first offered it!

    I understand they didn't realize how much it cost to begin with but, it's just a little bit hard for me to swallow!

    Thanks for reading my rant. Just needed to get that off of my chest.

    Bummer, worthy of a rant. I read the upgrade page. I see a USB module with galvanic isolation is added. The ESS Sabre DAC chip already does DSD with some slight remapping of input. Their module upgrade increases resolution to 32bit 384KHz. I had that on a USB module group buy for $60, it does I2S and DSD. You would have to know more details as to the why. Is it their design, OEM supplier, etc.

    "due to additional costs involved (that were late additions) which included various upgraded assemblies we had to raise the price " I understand and hey they need to make money to stay in business but, from 350 to 495 is a big jump. I am kicking myself for not doing it earlier.
