Just out curiosity - what did you think to the DAC? I’m looking at R2R options at the moment and this one is a potential contender.

Thanks in advance!

Good question. Here was my personal impressions of the Audio-GD R-1 R2R DAC. In summary I thought the product itself is a lemon and doesn’t even remotely hold a candle to the Chord Qutest and can’t even compare to the entry-level Mimby 2.

OTOH Audio GD does make some pretty stellar products in other categories, currently I’m in love with their DI-20 DDC (USB interface), working some ‘righteous’ magic into my DAC with their newest firmware.
