    The Knuckledragger 3rd Memorial Slow Forum Post

    Wow.....I think they have surpassed Winny Puhh as my favorite WTF video band..... They also seem to have a bit of Die Antwoord in them.....
  6. Always kind of liked them, though never picked anything up....I think the Hyundai commercial they did some time ago (shit, was it really 2010?!) caught my attention....

    Denafrips DACs

    Didn't have them at the same time, but I had the Ares, then later got the Soekris 1541 DAC/Amp (still have that). About twice as much, but definitely more refined, a bit more transparent, and I THINK a bit better extension at both frequency extremes. Twice as good? No....but better overall. I also owned the USB-powered 1101....not as good as the desktop unit, but better than several other DAC/amp units I had tried at work. BTW, the amp sections on the 1541 is just good, not great. A fair bit lost compared to putting the line outs to a nicer external amp. I'm using mine with an ECP DSHA-3F (custom output for the Focal phones).
