    Default Emotiva Stealth DC-1. Such a great piece of kit. So great that I canned all my mytek

    It is without a shred of doubt the equal of ANY dac i have ever (not!) heard.


    It is that good folks. price just dropped too(and right after I paid 699 damnit)

    it is utterly superb!

    I feel bad you bought a new piece that is just about outdated since it does not do DSD. Will they be offering a upgrade to it?

    Well....you could, if you threw gay marriage, guns, and cables don't matter into the mix. Then you could sit back and watch 300 pages fill up faster than H9 playing "Name that tube".

    I just don't get all the hate for Emotiva here, or the vitriol directed at anyone that comes here trying to save us from wasting money on other crap when the folks at Emotiva have created some of the best gear ever built at any price. Just because a guy that shops in the bargain isle at Walmart can now own audiophile quality gear for his mobile home is no reason to continuously disparage the brand or the people that own them.

    3 posts, and two are emo dac ones. And the 3rd
    is how we are wasting our money.

    I'm not envious of the one who has to do the shootout though.

    See what happens when you bring up Emotiva here? You brought this on yourself, lesson learned.

    Google his screen name, the guy goes on a dozen different forums, same shtick. As far as I can tell, he's never had a quality dac in his possession for comparison sake. At least to make the statements he does.

    Does the fact that it's a "stealth" unit mean it can operate without "anyone" being able to "hear" it?

    Nope. It means that its superiority will always escape the experienced listener.

    I took as the emo dac neither added nor subtracted from the music, totally invisible. Which if that is the case, then you won't miss it if you never bought it.

    Damn, I better go have a drink. It almost sounds like I'm starting to make sense. Can't have that now.

    Think it'll be as good as Chris's modded Music Hall 23.5 DAC for sale for $500 in the FM?
