Default Why no love from Stereophile on Wyred4Sound DAC?

DAC2 made theabsolutesound editors choice list for 2020. Never mentioned on stereophile. I also dont recognize much online chatter about it.

Why is that?

I don't know, but I have found that there has been very little overlap between products with favorable reviews between TAS and Stereophile for some years now.

There are a lot of brands and components out there to keep up with, so it’s not surprising that some components that we may like don’t get reviewed by one magazine or another.

Amen. Especially in that the reviewers seem to be quite serious about their work and don't do 'casual' reviews.

I found the following objective review.

https://audiosciencereview.com/forum...2-se-dac.6507/

Not good. Maybe this is a different DAC than the absolute sound reviewed?

The above site does a lot of objective measurements for audio equipment especially DAC’s.
