Mr.Sneis Posted May 5, 2017 Report Share Posted May 5, 2017 (edited) R2R is ultra popular again, manufacturers seem to be building them but vintage stuff also. Schiit and Metrum I think should be credited for a bit of this resurgence and making the cost somewhat affordable. I think Audio-GD is still big pimping pcm1704. USB is still crapshoot, it's gotten a lot better but the use of $$$$ expensive converters has gotten even more insane (like audio over ethernet). PS Audio really jumped the shark IMO with their super expensive Directstream DAC upgrade since the perfectwave days. Not too sure what happened to the cetoole analog upgrade board mods for older opamp based dacs, I think they disappeared or dried up. I've relegated myself to the vinyl realm and tried to look back but then got super screwed so I'm pretty much 98% out of the dac games now.
