Has anyone compared these? I wonder how close the dacs are to each other. I also wonder how big the gap gets when other components in the stack are added. Please share your thoughts. Thanks
Back when I was a dealer ( not any longer) I did this with a two freinds of mine. One is a HE speaker manufacturer and the other a very good listener.
We tried both DAC's with both Transports and used the clock with both of them.. We also compared different clock and digital cables during our two different sessions on two different systems.
The difference in the two transports was huge and maybe bigger than the difference in the two DAC's however the Scarlatti was clearly better in both regards.
If you are going to cough up that amount you must buy the big stuff. If you aren't there are products that cost a lot less that can do aa great job
