I hope this helps.
Thanks, yes, it's always good to get feedback from others who have walked the path, particularly with some time elapsed.

I think I'll do it but still working out whether to upgrade existing or whether to buy the anniversary model. Can't go wrong either way of course.

Great thread... I have a DAC 2 and considering doing the upgrade to the DAC-2v2SE. Also thinking of perhaps buying a trade in DAC-2v2SE instead of doing the upgrade. The price difference is only about $250 or so and I would end up with an extra Day that I could sell or use in another system. Is the upgrade from the DAC2 to the DAC-2v2SE that dramatic?

Look for my previous and others posts to this topic. The upgrade is well worth the cost IMHO.

It took me awhile to like the sound of my 10th anniversary DAC2, but I have to say it sounds great. I don't know if it's "break in" or whatever, but it did take some time to warm up to it. To me the original DAC2 and the Mc D100 sounded very similar, but the 10th is in a different league so I wouldn't hesitate to upgrade from the regular DAC2 to the 2v2SE.
