I am usually very sceptical when it comes to other's opinion about sound quality. So I decided it was time to give it a try myself and I bought this little piece of art. I did an A-B comparison with a sound card that is supposed to be high end: Audiotrak Prodigy HD2 Dl. I had a very hard time distinguishing between A and B. That's a good sign! The DAC's sound is very detailed over the complete range of supported sample rates. I did not believe that a piece of electronic could sound even sound better after a short run-in time. This Sabre DAC proved otherwise. The sound can only be described as more relaxed, when adding the DC-DC converter in between. In our country we have a saying for buying something that's not worth the money: "To buy a cat in a bag." The Sabre Async DAC is definitely not a Cat bought in a bag, but more like a Jaguar for the price of rusty Renault. Keep up the good work guys!
Vu le nombre d'avis qui encense ce produit, je vais être à contre-courant.
Personnellement, je n'entends aucune différence entre le rendu sonore avec ce DAC Sabre U2 et mon ancienne configuration. Déçu !!
Bought one of these along with an isolator to plug into a Raspberry Pi running Volumio. Sounds fantastic and supports hardware volume control.
Exceptionally good. The sound is equivalent to an asynch DAC I spent 6x as much money on.
This thing is fantastic. It was rather needy of a burn in process though. It sounded harsh and too tight with sibilance straight out, after about 12 hours of burn in - it was showing signs of clarity with the treble becoming strong but still a little harsh. It's been a few days and now it has no sibilance, no harshness and is opening up wonderfully. The balance across bass, mids and treble is now straight and pure. It's the best thing I've ever heard with my Beyerdynamic T1. I'm hearing new things in everything I have. wow.
