New Product RE: Denafrips 12th Anniversary Edition Digital-to-Digital Converter (DDC)
When I had my Metrum Onyx I used a Kitsune edition DDC, as the coax input was the best.  I now have a Totaldac D1 core and the USB input is best.  The DDC is not needed.

My parents Columbia / capital console. I used to crank that baby up when they were gone.

A Different "Analog" Question
