I have got to hear this DA2 of yours. As you know I am very familiar with the Emm brand because of my DAC2x.

It is very interesting how this local group of ours have become fans of the Emm digital sources.

I have to post my impressions in a bit of our meet.

The biggest thing I take from this is:
In a time where the perceived differences between top shelf DACs are minor (see the Esoteric K01x vs Schitt Yggy review), when you hear what we heard comparing top shelf DACs to the Emm and you hear the very obvious difference in sonic reproduction, you wonder... what have I been listening to before?

I am glad I brought my Emm to the meeting, it was as I suspected all along.... a top performer.

Now I know my ears arent broken.
